An open microphone gave the world today some idea of what Barrack Husein Obama might do if unfettered by the need to run for re-election.
Speaking with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev at the Seoul meetings of world leaders, our President addressed Russia's hopes that we neuter the missile shield defenses planned for Europe.
Not realizing he was on live mike, our President told Medvedev for relay to Vladimir Putin:
On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it's important for him to give me space....
This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibity.
The morning news program I saw this on commented that the remark is being discussed world wide.
I am sure that amongst the places it is a subject of discussion: Tel Aviv, London, Warsaw.
The world, and Americans, deserve better than this.
