Obama Asks Russia For Campaign Support

Help Obama look good for a few months and he'll happily roll over after the election.
President Barack Obama offered a private request Monday to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for some “space” on missile defense ahead of November’s elections.

Good doggie!
“On all these issues, particularly on missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space,” Obama said, referring to incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a TV pool reporter who heard audio recorded by a Russian reporter who was in the room moments before the two leaders spoke to reporters after their 90-minute meeting.

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

A U.S. pool video camera in the room caught part of the audio, but not the piece about missile defense.

“This is my last election,” Obama said in audio that could be heard on the TV pool’s recording and that POLITICO listened to. “After my election I have more flexibility.”

"Flexibility" - translation: I can do whatever the F I want to do and no one can stop me. He's already decided that the election is his. Maybe he knows something about the next election that the rest of us do not know. Maybe he's Miss Cleo in disguise.......
