The president caught unguarded by ABC News this time again seemed to try and cover up an indiscreet moment where his intentions seem suspect. Interestingly enough the video begins with a commercial touting Obama’s” all of the above energy policy & how it has lessened our dependence on foreign oil  and runaway gas prices.”This at a time when gas prices are historically high, hurting all Americans. Missile defense has been the essence of our rise to prominence. It initially brought down the Soviet empire through the leadership and vision of President Reagan to the present. This President has already cancelled planned installation of missile defense sites protecting Europe and won nothing in return from the Russians. Notice that according to ABC’s written story much is left out. The reporter, Jake Tapper gives us important perspective.

The conversation begins with President Obama saying, ” 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 again believing no one is listening, replies,” Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you.”

The video begins with President Obama saying, “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” President Medvedev finally concluded, “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”

Note also the President’s posture this does not seem like a man dealing with the strength we expect in the United States. This while dealing with a Russia that is less free and does not support us or our positions in the world. Russia under Putin is no friend of the United States and this President continues to act like we are weak and seek international support against our national interests and security.

Then a senior administration official tells ABC News: “this is a political year in which the Russians just had an election, we’re about to have presidential and congressional elections – this is not the kind of year in which we’re going to resolve incredibly complicated issue like this. So there’s an advantage to pulling back and letting the technical experts work on this as the president has been saying.”

Watch the video and the way he speaks. If you need further perspective, I advise you to watch his dismissive comments as he personally responded to the situation. It seems that he speaks haltingly when one questions his actions,  he’s suddenly at a loss for words.
