The Audacity of Obama’s Intentions Revealed; Updated: Video Added

Gov. Palin on Facebook:

Whoever chooses to merely dismiss the significance of today’s exchange between our President and Russia’s President should have their intelligence and patriotism questioned. Let this exchange be a warning to voters: President Obama will have “more flexibility” to weaken us if he’s re-elected in November. He was caught speaking candidly to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev before a “hot mic” today (and surely one must believe he didn’t know the mics were still on; surely he’s not so audacious as to purposefully broadcast his intentions), as reported by ABC’s Jake Tapper. Here’s the exchange:

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.

Let’s consider what this “flexibility” might mean. We know that he has repeatedly conceded to foreign demands and backed down on missile defense. I pointed this out as Governor of Alaska when he proposed reducing Alaska’s missile defense system capabilities. I explained then that the President’s proposed military cuts would diminish Alaska’s opportunity to defend the union with our strategic location’s defense infrastructure. We also know that in 2009, as part of his “reset” with Russia, President Obama turned his back on our Eastern European allies by abandoning past promises for a missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic.

We can’t know for certain what this newly revealed “flexibility” means, but considering President Obama’s past actions, be sure it won’t involve a position of strength for America and our allies. Russia has been thwarting us on one issue after another, including the rushed-through New START Treaty that many of us questioned after Obama insisted America ratify it first, then allow Russia to sit on it – unratified on their end – until it suited that foreign power’s needs.

Meanwhile, North Korea is planning another long-range missile launch, and the United States and our allies are still vulnerable to the threat of ballistic missiles. Our president has done nothing to alleviate this vulnerability; in fact, he’s done just the opposite. He has consistently taken a position of weakness and naïve trust in Putin’s Russia. Consider that one-sided New START Treaty as an example of this. Or consider those cuts to Alaska’s missile defense system, which leaves us much more vulnerable in the face of a nuclear North Korea. Now consider the state of our national defense under a President who whispers to a foreign power that he needs even “more flexibility” to weaken us further.

– Sarah Palin


Update by Doug: I’ve added video of the Obama-Medvedev open mic exchange:

For more on Obama’s indefensible record of turning his back on Poland and the Czech Republic (to which Governor Palin refers above), see here. Not surprisingly, Poland isn’t amused by Obama’s latest antics. Neither are Republicans.

  • patnatasha

    spoken like a true leader.

  • de4palin

    Thank God that one of the "candidates" is speaking out on this. Sarah Palin is my voice on the international stage.

    • Yankee4Palin

      Gingrich called the exchange with Medvedev an "extraordinary moment caught on tape where the president basically said to a Russian leader, ‘Please wait until after the election so I can sell out.’

      "If you read what he said, it is the most blatant comment about selling out American defenses I think any American president’s ever made and I don’t see how any American could trust him ever again after that comment," Gingrich said. "I mean, he thinks it’s in private and he’s saying to the Russians, please quote ‘give me some space’ so I can be re-elected and then I’ll be free to do anything I want to. Well, that just told you how radically left-wing Obama’s going to be in the second term

      • 01_Explorer_01

        That gives me a warm feeling

        • pipam12

           spooky dude isn’t he

  • gahanson

    0bama knows that the media, and 40+ percent of the people will automatically give him a pass on whatever he says or does.  I honestly believe if he was caught burying bodies in the rose garden the media would praise him for recycling, and using organic fertilizer.  Don’t expect much of an uproard over this candid moment

    • patnatasha

      the media is going to do what they always do.

  • Christine Riordan Brown

    TRAITOR THATS WHAT HE IS !!!!!!!!!!!!!  TRAITOR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • patnatasha

      yes he is.

    • Kalena

      If you think about all of the things he has said about our country from the beginning, he has been a consistent traitor all of his life.

    • jerseymark

      Draw up articles of impeachment immediately. Who cares what the Senate does. Maintain focus on this for months as it is treasonous. 

  • aaron66krohn


    OH WHY……

    is this woman…..

    this WARRIOR…..

    this PATRIOT…..

    this woman who loves, honors, and respects our military…..

    this woman who gave us HER 5-Point Doctrine for the Use of American Military Force….

    this woman who SHOULD be our next……



    WHY OH WHY is she……

    NOT RUNNING?????

    (Please, enough of the BULLCRAP about whether she is, or is not, running a "stealth" campaign!!!)

    Sarah, you’ve spoken the words our President SHOULD be speaking!!!

    BECOME our President…..

    and speak them yourself!!!!

  • Lennart Bilén

    “After my election I have more flexibility”

    Said Obama to Dmitri, he can’t face reality

    He surrenders our land

    To that Russian mob-band.

    Appeasement at work while pretending civility.

    • patnatasha

      he is awfully confident that he will win re-election.

      • songofdeborah

        Yes, he is???
        I smell fowl play coming to a ballot box near you.

  • DocBarry1

    republicans wake up – you are wasting a tqrue American Treasure – Gov Palin thank you!!!

  • Freempg

    It’s called TREASON.

    • Suki Pero

      You said it!

  • Nancy6

    You CAN see Russia from Alaska, ya know.
    The ‘Cuda sees all.
    Love her!

    • pipam12

       yes and I can see Sarah in the white house from my house

  • ernst1776

    Sarah Palin is the ONLY ONE challenging Obama.  Romney and Santorum are only trying to convince the base that they are bonafide conservtives as Palin is the only one actually voicing conservative ideas and concerns.

  • colint

    There is a LEADER

  • waterview

    ………..Now consider the state of our national defense under a President who whispers to a foreign power that he needs even “more flexibility” to weaken us further……….

    Oh the irony.   Didn’t Gov Palin have the highest security clearance among those running in 2008 (with the possible exception of McCain)?   This sentence in particular gives such a visual reference to what a weasel our President is……"whispers to a foreign power"…………to "weaken us further".    Keep them coming Governor!

  • Carolyn Dixon

    folks, it’s obvious that sarah is the only one besides newt pointing out obama’s plan to sell America out to Russia.  Time to start writing in her name for president.  I know that I am come November.  Let’s tell the GOP Establishment to stop shoving these moderate unelectable candidates down our throats and that we will be writing in Sarah’s name for the gop nominee.

    • jeffo1

      Writing in Sarahs name is akin to rolling out the red carpet and another 4 years for the thug in chief!
      Of course I understand we all wanted Sarah and that we don’t care much for the rest but 4 more years of barry I am not prepared to suffer.  Please folks get serious!

    • HuntingMoose

      Whatever for the primary.

      Just vote on in the general against obama for whoever opposes.

      Or "give" your vote to sarah and follow her in who (newt) she voted for.

  • nkthgreek

    Listen carefully, and you can hear the crickets over at the MSM.

    • jeffo1

      And the only thing quieter than that are our supposed representatives, you know those spineless, gutless complicit eunuchs.

    • songofdeborah

      I pray that this gives EVERYONE a pause of concern, expectually the LSM. Do they not realize they aren’t safe from his disasterous policies either; once they are no longer useful…..

  • Richard Dunnell

    It’s still not too late to start impeachment hearings. There’s evidence enough to send both BO and Holder "up the river" for a long time. Will our weak-kneed leaders stand up to this usurper?

    • Exgunman

      "Not likely" with a DEMONCRAT controlled senate. He has a better chance of being read the riot act by pelosi for smoking in the capitol building than being impeached/sentenced for high crimes and misdemeanors  (treason, dereliction of duty, lying to Congress and Americans, violation of gun laws, failure to protect USA)……………………………..

    • bejocy

      Impeachment can happen even AFTER they are out of office….if I read my Constitution right.

  • OldPat

    Were it not for you, I fear the only sound we patriots would hear about this heinous act would be crickets chirping and corn growing after an early summer rain a few months from now.

    As for our LSM and PPC, they have much more important things to do like 1) deciding what to do with poor Trayvon’s killer, 2) figuring out how to get BO’s favorables up so he can get re-elected, and 3) setting things up for Jeb in 2016.  

    Thank you, Governor, for your quick response.

    • friskyness

       It’s NOT that Jeb would be good for the country, it’s that Jeb would be good for the republicans and give them jobs in the white house.  Rove is waiting for HIS chance……..forget about the country…………..

  • patnatasha

    the dufus just doesn’t need to be defeated but defeated badly.

    • conservativemama

      Landslide.  It has to be made crystal clear that we do not want a 2nd term.

      • patnatasha

        absolutely this man can’t have a second term under no circumstances can he be re-elcted.

  • lorenzini

    What is amazing is that the LSM is not reporting the the first part of the audio!!! This is the first time that I have seen this. Thx Gov.

  • Norcalo

    First I was skeptical about Obama. Then he was elected, and I gave him the benefit of the doubt. Now I think he’s a traitor.

    • 01_Explorer_01

      What happens to traitors in Russia?

      • Norcalo


  • conservativemama

    This man…………………………………I just cannot believe people voted for him.  And will again.
