Background, context, and assumptions:
Reasons to agree
- “President Obama had a revealing and unguarded moment when he was caught on tape telling Russia’s president, ‘This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.’ President Obama signaled that he’s going to cave to Russia on missile defense, but the American people have a right to know where else he plans to be ‘flexible’ in a second term. Higher taxes, more spending and increased debt are all on the table as long as Barack Obama is in the White House, despite what he says publicly. President Obama needs to level with the American public about his real agenda.” –Mitt Romney
- President Obama Asked Russian President Medvedev For Some “Space” And Promised To Have More “Flexibility” On Missile Defense “After [His] 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. … ‘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.’” (Jennifer Epstein, “Obama Asks Russia For 'Space' Through Election,” Politico, 3/26/12)
