Jake Tapper at ABC News posted a story today about some remarks made by President Obama that were not necessarily for public consumption.
The exchange between President Obama and Russian President Medvedev was captured by an open microphone nearby:
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.
All I can think of when I read this is that it is the script from a bad gangster movie. I don’t want to think about the plans this President has for us if he wins in November.
If the Republicans do not use this in a campaign ad in the presidential campaign this year, they deserve to lose the election.
