Obama to Russia: ‘After My Election I Have More Flexibility’

Daniel Halper
The Weekly Standard

President Obama got caught in private conversation with a hot mic today in Seoul, South Korea, telling outgoing Russian president Dmitry Medvedev that Vladimir Putin should give him more “space” and that “[a]fter my election I have more flexibility.”

Jake Tapper has the exchange:

President Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.”

President Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…”

President Obama: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”

President Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir, and I stand with you.”

Trevor Loudon writes, “There is a strong case to be made that Barack Obama is a Soviet agent at least in intent. Scoff if you will, but evidence is mounting more and more.”

Update: Obama ‘flexibility’ remark ‘sadly’ true, says Rep. Wilson

“I believe there will be unrestrained growth of big government, an infringement and a limitation on the individual freedoms of the American people and putting our security at risk at the same time.”
