Obama Telegraphs Second Term: “More Flexibility.”
The Smartest President Evar ™ doesn’t realize that the microphones are on and got caught making a very revealing comment to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev (emphasis added):
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.
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.
We’ve already seen Obama using Executive Branch departments like the EPA and HHS to implement his far-left agenda without having to go through that whole messy “Separation of Powers” thing and submit his plans to Congress, and this comment clearly hints that he’s planning on doing a lot more of the same if he’s re-elected.
This man needs to be removed, and we need a united Republican Party to do it. As I wrote quite some time ago:
Given that there can only be one GOP nominee, the big question is, what will the supporters of the other 14 do if their preferred candidate is not the one who wins the nomination? This is a very serious question, because if enough people sit out the general election because their preferred candidate doesn’t win the primary, Obama will be the winner. It’s really that simple.
Just because your preferred candidate didn’t win the nomination doesn’t mean that you should turn the country back over to an Obama with absolutely no curbs on his behavior for the next four years. Three (yes, three!) of my preferred candidates have pretty much imploded… Perry, Cain, and now Rick “Obama better than Romney” Santorum, but I’m not sitting out this election, I’ll be voting for whoever the GOP nominee is in November (unless it’s Ron Paul, who would be even more of a disaster than an unfettered Obama). We need to remember that the main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing, and the main thing is getting Obama out of the White House and let him golf all day if he wants.
