President Obama privately told Russia he will have “more flexibility” to deal with missile defense after the election in a conversation that was picked up Monday by live microphones.

Speaking to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev ahead of a global nuclear security summit in South Korea, Obama asked for “space” and “time” to deal with the missile defense issue.

“Yeah. I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you,” Medvedev said.

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

    The articles of surrender have been drawn up, awaiting only declaration of martial law or the re-election of Obama. Either way, we will have seen our last presidential election.

    i have more faith in the American people than you do zeek.

    the generation i am from will fight, i don’t know about your generation.

    i also believe that we will prevail, no matter what.

    it all depends on if a person is willing to fight for what he or she believes in.

    i pray for our country and that GOD will help us all!

    Sounds like a pitch for more campaign dough…tell Vlad that if he backs me, the sky is the limit on disarming America.

    Obama is a conniving liar; I’m afraid thinking about him having all our secrets including the ‘football’. He wouldn’t do anything silly, would he?
