Hugh Hewitt:"The Appeasement President's Defining Moment"

From Hugh Hewitt's blog:
You have to look pretty hard to find any stories on President Obama's exchange with Russian President Medvedev. The president first tried a little humor and then went into full --"nothing to see here, I am a transparent guy-- mode with reporters, but the stunning exchange is just beginning to seep into the public's consciousness, and with it all the implications of President Obama assuring our Russian adversary that after the election is over, he can be more "flexible." Despite the protective ring thrown up around him by an admiring MSM, this spectacular display of duplicity towards the American electorate will not fade.... ************* Only the slobbering Obamians within the MSM don't seem to understand an enormous moment when it happens, so busy are they with their Etch-a-Sketch comments by a staffer and their zombie narrative about the GOP convention being brokered or some other nonsense. How to explain to them? Analogies might work if any of them have basic history down. Imagine Ike telling Molotov in '55 that he was facing his last election next year and that he needed some space, and the Soviet foreign secretary assuring him he'd transmit the information to Uncle Joe. Or JFK saying the same thing to Gromyko, he agreed to pass it on to Khrushchev. Or Nixon saying to Zhou forty years ago during his trip to China "This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility." And Zhou replying, "I will transmit this to Chairman Mao." Russia is our adversary, and on nearly every issue they are working to destroy our position in our world and subjugate former allies. They are arming Iran, have invaded Georgia, and are blackmailing Europe. What doesn't the president understand about Russia? Apparently everything. And what does President Obama plan to do vis-a-vis Russia if he is re-elected? You go ahead and guess because the MSM won't be speculating about what the president's clap on the arm was meant to convey. Between now and the election in November, Obama's allies will do their best to minimize then airbrush this astonishing exchange from the public's concerns, and the job of people concerned about America's standing in the world and the defense of our allies to keep bringing the public back to the fact that the president has committed to deceiving them --to the president of Russia no less. http://www.hughhewitt.com/blog/g/33d90814-597d-467f-bb40-7de8300c2284
