    Obama tells Medvedev he'll have 'more flexibility' after election

    Fox News - Breaking News Updates | Latest News Headlines | Photos & News Videos

    "President Obama assured Russian President Dmitry Medvedev Monday that he'd have "more flexibility" after the November election, during a conversation that appeared to focus on the touchy issue of missile defense."

    Wonder what this flexibility is that he'll have after he wins a 2nd term? On a clear day the President can see forever.

    No, but from Alaska he can see Russia

    Pretty dumb for our President to think he is a sure winner for a second term.

    I always suspect that these things are set up. I don't know how this could possibly play in Obama's favor, but I find it hard to believe that he accidentally spoke into an open mic. In any event, his team will be thinking hard to see how this can be used to his advantage. Here's my guess: some time in September, Obama and Romney will be in a debate, and Romney will say something about what Obama's new flexibility will be, and Obama will have some ready-made prefab quip just for the occaision.

    Well, I don't know really. But on the surface, yes.

    Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Furthermore, when drinking my coffee, I was amused to hear a talk radio host on Fox News blabber about how this meant some sort of radical agenda, and then proceeds to talk about domestic policies...rather than international ones.

    At least he isn't using fear to get re-elected......yet.
