    President Obama Asks Medvedev for ‘Space’ on Missile Defense — ‘After My Election I Have More Flexibility’

    SEOUL, South Korea — At the tail end of his 90 minute meeting with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev Monday, President Obama said that he would have “more flexibility” to deal with controversial issues such as missile defense, but incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin needs to give him “space.”

    The exchange was picked up by microphones as reporters were let into the room for remarks by the two leaders.

    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.

    Yes Comrade Putin, I will finally make America a paper tiger on missile defense ... after the next election.

    Just a little more patience my friend.

    First Clinton cedes our missile guidance tech to China. Then 0bama nixes our missile defense shield for Eastern Europe by executive order at the beginning of his administration. Now this.

    How long before Americans see a pattern? Or are they waiting for the alphabet news channels to tell them what to think?

    Lets not forget too that Obama went back on an agreement Bush made with Poland to base missile defense in their country...because it made the Russians made.

    He will screw over any ally he has to in order to appease his fellow travellers.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    Considering what's on tap for the rest of the force structure, it does not apply just to missile defense. The services are headed into another one of those long, dark valleys.

    About a third of the Army's maneuver forces. Probably end up being deeper yet in the support structure (Training base, etc.), just to keep that remaining 2/3 fully manned. Equally brutal on the Marines, not supposed to be quite as bad for the Air Force and Navy.
