Yep, obama to putin .. we will comply with all your wishes comrade as long as I can hold on to power. After that the US is yours after I finish disarming it. This anti-american commie traitor needs to be shown the door in November.

Putin should be a guiding force in America's transition to the old Soviet/Big Brother central planning future limiting those pesky "personal freedoms" the obama promises after he is crowned again in November. Big Brother ALWAYS knows best. And, the obama is all America deserves.

Many of us over 40 can remember when the Democratic Party wasn't America's "Enemies Within". Sadly, most Americans no longer care what happens to their children and grand children and won't even bother to VOTE to save them from Big Brother.

Yes, it goes back to the fiasco of Kennedy/Johnson great Society act, where millions of americans were allowed to sit on their porch and wait on their check. Now the results have come in.

That is the way the dems wants it to be so they can keep "buying" their votes from the freeloaders.

I believe you will see the Aerican worker who pays for the joy riding, needy greedy coming out to vote in November. We have had it. This President is destroying the country, and his Democrats are helping him. We will unie to save the country from Obama's friend Putin, and the Muslim Brotherhood.

While there is only a slim chance it will happen, if obama should lose, i wonder who he will blame?

so far, absolutely nothing that has happened on his watch has been his fault, he might wanna keep his no hitter going.

More flexable to do WHAT? Am I the only one to be slightly alarmed and curious just what Obama meant. Did it mean that after the election, if reelected that is, he has NO CONSTRAINTS like trying to get reelected, no strings attached because he already has his second term, all bets will be off. What else does he thing he has a free ride on IF he get's reelected? Scary thought.

He was "caught" stating the obvious, and we're supposed to what, think it's some new Obama "plot" or something?

Hint: It's called DIPLOMACY. Grow up.

The fact of the matter is that nothing ever gets done in an election year, and the President is letting his Russian counterpart know the reality of the situation; and in his response, Medvedev fully understood. After we re-elect President Obama we will see a number of major accomplishment happen because the right-wing opposition to him will e greatly diminished especially when we take back the House and hold the Senate.

No, it's called lying to the public. That's why he didn't say it when he thought his mike was on. The truth comes out when people think they are not being watched.

He's gotten so used to lying to the public that he's gotten careless about it. It's becoming too easy for him, and sure enough his bobo's are already calling anyone who questions this comment "crazies" and "conspiracy theorists". Typical Liberal tactic, if you can't deny the truth, just call anyone against you names.

If it weren't for democrats and liberals, you'd still be living in a cave. Or would that be a step up for you?

Right. If you're going to buy a vote, buy it from the top. They don't have enough money so they'll sell it cheap.
