When bargaining away America’s military defensive capabilities, timing is everything.

In March of 2012, Obama to Russia: “After my election, I have more flexibility.”

How did Obama know that he would get re-elected? Did he enlist the support of the Kremlin?

Funny that no Leftists ever asked that question, when Obama was caught on a hot mic proclaiming victory in advance. Given his performance over 4 years, only a moron would make such a prediction. Or somebody who colluded with the Russians.

Obama and Medvedev were in Seoul, South Korea for a global nuclear security summit. Several reporters overheard their frank discussion as they entered the room for a press conference.

Obama asked Russia for time and space, “particularly with missile defense.” He proclaimed that once he won re-election, he could politically move more freely to resolve such issues.

I understand your message about space,” replied Medvedev, who will hand over the presidency to Putin in May.

This is my last election … After my election I have more flexibility,” Obama said.

“I will transmit this information to Vladimir [Putin],” said Medvedev.

Exactly who has the better relationship with Russia, Obama or Trump?

If you want to play the “what if” game, imagine if Trump had said something like this on a hot mic? The idea floating around DC is that Trump has relationships with Russia, and they supposedly helped Trump win the election. Does that hot mic exchange validate or invalidate that theory?

And then Obama admitted to this…

Obama's Hot Mic, MedvedevWhite House correspondents, as well as Russian reporters, listened live to this exchange. Obama literally confessed before them, that the only time he holds himself accountable to America is during elections. Post-election Obama would be free to do as he wished.

In his mind, he had no other checks or balances. The Leftist media made no accusations that Obama was duping the public. Nor did they claim he was acting as a dictator, circumventing the will of the people.

Ultimate, the U.S. plans for an anti-missile shield strained relations between Washington and Moscow. Obama Republicans accused Obama of conceding too much to Russia.

Thus the request by Obama for “time.”

When questioned about that nefarious exchange, the White House explained that elections get in the way of political policy. Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes clarified:

“Since 2012 is an election year in both countries, with an election and leadership transition in Russia and an election in the United States, it is clearly not a year in which we are going to achieve a breakthrough. Therefore, President Obama and President Medvedev agreed that it was best to instruct our technical experts to do the work of better understanding our respective positions, providing space for continued discussions on missile defense cooperation going forward.”

Nice try. No wonder Obama signed so many executive orders, usurping the authority of Congress aka the People. Transforming a republic into a dictatorship takes time. The election, too, was a hiccup to Obama’s lofty plans. Notice, Rhodes didn’t acknowledge in March, there could be a leadership exchange in the U.S. in November. What extreme arrogance.

Obama felt his re-election was a foregone conclusion eight months before polls opened. Anybody think Donald Trump was that confident? Is that why Trump outpaced Hillary Clinton 5 to 1 in campaign stops? Trump certainly worked hard for a man who had the support of Russians rigging the election.

Then there is the other side of that discussion. Hillary Clinton sure worked light for somebody who felt the fix was in.
