O’s grovel before Russia’s #2 dismays many

Our president meets deputy Czar. | pic of the day


Our president’s audio and video recorded grovel before Russia’s #2 dismays many.

Including those who had hoped that, as our president, he might end his public demonstrations of subsevience to foreign potentates, be they Muslim, oriental, or other.

But grovelling before the deputy Czar to beg the Czar’s aid in the deception of the People of the United States of America is a bit too much.

After all, the Constitution that our president has sworn to defend was written and adopted in the name of the sovereign People.

And treason is rather obviously an impeachable and indeed, captial, offense.

Barack Obama’s grovelling before the Russians is an embarrassment [to say the least] – [Nile Gardiner] Telegraph Blogs

Ronald Reagan, together with Margaret Thatcher, stood up to Moscow, and brought the Soviet Empire to its knees.

In contrast, Barack Obama has gone on his knees to grovel before the Russians.

The exchange between President Obama and his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev in Seoul was a display of supplication before a major strategic adversary on an issue of great importance for US national security – missile defence.

The private conservation was picked up on microphone, and relayed by ABC News correspondent Jake Tapper:

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.

KGB deep cover asset gets orders? Two leftie biggies conspiring? Our president begging foreign power to help him deceive and defeat the People of the United States of America? Move along, nothing but chickens in the hen house?

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.

The US President has tried to downplay the remarks, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal, which quotes him as saying:

“I don’t think it’s any surprise that you can’t start that a few months before presidential and congressional elections in the United States, and at a time when they just completed elections in Russia,” Mr. Obama said Tuesday as he as sat down to meet with Mr. Medvedev and the president of Kazakhstan. “This is not a matter of hiding the ball.”

Barack Obama’s comments are disturbing on several levels. First, they display a willingness to placate America’s enemies, and cede ground over issues of national interest. Second, Obama is linking foreign policy decision-making to the timetable of the US presidential election, openly telling the Russians that he will deliver when he is no longer constrained by seeking re-election. This demonstrates contempt for the American people, suggesting that what he tells the Russians may be completely different to his message at home. Third, they reveal a dismissive approach towards America’s friends in eastern and central Europe, as well as US allies in the Gulf states, who must be wondering now if they will be sold out next.

President Obama’s remarks should be viewed against a backdrop of an astonishing surrender to Moscow over Third Site missile defence in September 2009, where [president Obama] dropped plans for missile defence installations in Poland and the Czech Republic in the face of Russian opposition, a move that was seen as a betrayal of US allies.

The Obama administration’s approach towards Russia has been one of weakness, with every opportunity taken to kowtow to Moscow in an effort to secure the New START Treaty. As The Telegraph revealed in February last year, the Obama presidency went to great lengths to meet Russian demands, including passing on sensitive information regarding Britain’s independent nuclear deterrent in an act of betrayal of America’s closest friend and ally. According to The Telegraph report:

A series of classified messages sent to Washington by US negotiators show how information on Britain’s nuclear capability was crucial to securing Russia’s support for the “New START” deal. […]

Barack Obama’s latest prostration to the Russians is a humiliation for the USA. President Obama is the antithesis of President Reagan, a towering leader who stood up to America’s adversaries and projected American resolve and leadership. The Gipper was a titan on the world stage, feared by America’s enemies. In marked contrast, the current President has all too often humbled his own nation before the world.
