Team Obama has revealed its election campaign strategy to cover up the president’s momentous whisper gaffe with the Russians last week: Attack Mitt Romney as naive and still living in an era when the Russians couldn’t be trusted.
According to Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton, the democratic backsliding in Russia is nothing to worry about. The Russians under returning President Vladimir Putin are our friends. And Joe even revealed Sunday that if Iran closes or disrupts the Straits of Hormuz, shutting off 20% of the world’s daily oil flow, Russia has agreed to consider selling Europe more of its oil. Aren’t they pals?
Last week at a nuclear summit in Seoul, Obama was caught on an open mic quietly pleading with outgoing President Dmitry Medvedev for “space,” especially on missile defenses, during the U.S. election campaign and assuring the Russian that he would have more “flexibility” after “my last election.”
Flexibility? On defending America with missiles? Why would a loyal U.S. commander-in-chief ever want to be flexible on such things? And signal that stance ahead of negotiations to anyone, especially potential enemies? Please help me con my people.
