Barack Obama--Finding Flexibility

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

Leaning close to the ear of Russian President Medvedev, asking that a message be conveyed to Putin, the President whispered, "'s important for him to give me space." Medvedev said, "Yeah, I understand your message about space."

The President of the United States continued, "This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility."

Medvedev: "I understand."

You've already heard all this, because the whole world has heard it. What President Obama thought was a private whispered message went directly into a hot mic, and everybody in the world listened.

I have linked an excellent article from FrontPage.

This raises some very serious questions, none the least of which is, "When will the President of the United States learn that mics are often left on?" He has mastered the teleprompter, can he not master the mic?

Just a few months ago the President was heard around the world in another "private conversation" arrogantly putting down Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu to French President Sarkozy in response to Sarkozy calling Netanyahu "a liar". Our President replied, "You're tired of him, what about me? I have to deal with him everyday."

What does Russia understand about Obama's flexibility that we unexceptional Americans do not understand, but should?

How much more of America will he give away? What is he going to do with his "space" and "flexibility"?

He made clear his real goals on his 100th day in office when he returned to the state where he had concluded his campaign for President and reported back to the people in a speech at Fox Senior High School in Arnold Missouri.

I have linked the text of the entire speech, but note these words toward his conclusion:

"So today, on my 100th day in office, I've come to report to you, the American people, that we have begun to pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off, and we've begun the work of remaking America. (Applause.) We're working to remake America."

Remaking America?

What part of America is he remaking?

Shouldn't we be working to restore the greatest nation in history---not remaking it?

Upon what foundations are we "remaking" this country?

Many more than 100 days have now past and it has become clear that "remaking" includes almost every part of the fabric of our nation. Including her fundamental foundations.

Moral. Fiscal. Political. Social. Cultural.

Ben Rhodes, White House spokesman, in explaining the President's latest "private" message fiasco, said in downplaying the incident, it was "nothing out of the ordinary."

In remaking America, it seems we are also trying to create a new normal. A new ordinary.

Mediocrity rather than exceptionalism.

Socialism, rather than capitalism; redefining morality, from marriage to family to the sanctity of life; and advancing a moral relativism that continuously creates new truth, is at the heart of the plea for "flexibility."

Flexibility and space are absolutely necessary for someone to remake a nation founded on Judeo-Christian principles and teaching, and to then remake it on the shifting sands of moral relativism and secular progressivism.

And he needs another term to insure all the former moorings are cut.

While Russia, China, Iran and other adversarial nations pose a potentially great threat to our nation, it seems it is, as Rome's Marcus Tullius Cicero explained more than 2000 years ago, the political "enemy within" that may pose the greatest threat of all.

Political flexibility is most often about getting re-elected.

Moral flexibility is always about an expression of personal benefit, in that it allows you to create truth---or at least the illusion of it. And to make promises that never were.

Thank you for supporting our commitment to advance Truth in both action and in word.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Informed. Be Blessed.


  1. When the Obama and Medvedev hot mic conversation is put in its proper context of two communists planning to disarm the United States, while communist Russia/China are arming, the treachery is enormous. We know all we need to know to do what must be done: Obama and his insurgents must be immediately arrested and jailed. In Congress, I will work to make that happen.

    1. Ernest that will not happen , he did nothing illegal. What should happen is what would have happened if Bush did it, or any republican . It would be news big time , the News Cycle would be going in to over time .

      The best thing to do is speak to the inapprpriate comments , great campaign commercial, give a civic lesson on how Treaties are made , who is responsible for them . And how this President can not be trusted .

      Yuor tact will only take away the loosing
      issue for the President and allow it to become minimized with the focus on your inappropriate response.

      Which is more remembered , Clinton lying to the Court to cover up a crime , or the GOP making a big deal out of a cheating husband .

      Learn my friend . The Press loves Obama .

  2. He continues to undermine the Untied States and all she stands for. How confident he seems that he, his cronies and agenda are being played out.

    With his constant apologies, and now 'promises' to foreign leaders, he is setting groundwork for a socialist and perhaps a foreign takeover. That's the "change" he has worked so diligently toward since his election and the change he spoke about while campaigning.

    1. "the Untied States and all she stands for"

      As in a government controlled by big money and corporations, a health care system ranked 37th in the world that skips tens of millions, an education system that leaves graduates deeply in debt for their degree, etc, etc.

      Yup, he wants to undermine that FOR SURE! What a scary guy.

      You guys are all paranoid about his 'secret' intentions, yet all he's done in the past 4 years is try to make things better for the little guy. Check what he's actually done, not what fox news tells you he wants to do.

    2. Oh, and by the way, for a guy that wants a foreign takeover he's sure done a lot more against terrorism than his predecessor. Again, look at the real record, not mark levin's version.

    3. His record ? Are you measuring success by how many more people receive food stamps , how many more of us are below the poverty level ?

      Do you measure success by Killing Asamba Bin Laddin ? Or by spending the first two years of your Administration on Health Care instead of the economy and jobs. Then see the legislation , which came about by deals with insurance and drug manufacturers become under judiciary review.

      Oh yeah , gays can serve in the military . Go Obama ?

    4. Is that your way of thanking them for their service? Nice.
