Romney and Obama On Open Mike
Posted by Warren Peterson on September 19, 2012
Mitt Romney in remarks made at a private fund raising function last May, spoke about the forty seven percent of Americans who get some direct monetary payment from the government and the likelihood that they would vote for Obama. The event was secretly recorded and provided to “Mother Jones”, a left wing magazine. Hoping to inflict maximum damage on the Romney campaign, they held it until now, close to the election.
So which should concern you more? Romney’s too blunt but true comment or the following conversation recorded from an open mike between then President Dmitri Medvedev of Russian and President Obama at the March 2012 Global Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, South Korea:
Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him (incoming Russian president, Vladmir Putin) to give me some space.
Medvedev: Yeah, I understand, I understand your message about space. Space for you …(inaudible)
Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.
Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladmir.
Link the above conversation with President Obama caving into Russian pressure and canceling an agreement with our ally, Poland, to host a missile defense system. Toss Poland under the bus; tell Putin he (Obama) can be more flexible after the election – that concerns me.
