Listening In On Obama’s Mic

Most of what President Barack Obama says is carefully scripted by his handlers and placed on the teleprompter for him to read. When Obama is caught without a teleprompter we get some insight on how radical he really is. That is what happened at the 2012 summit in South Korea when Obama was heard on an open mic saying to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, … it’s important .. to give me space. … This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” Medvedev replied, “I will transmit this information to Vladimir.” That colloquy tells us all we need to know about Obama’s plan to destroy America’s military superiority. Obama asserted that, after his reelection, he would no longer be accountable to the American public “particularly on missile defense,” which Obama has always opposed.

The United States has always had anti-missile superiority, a tremendous protection against the murderous aims of Iran, Communist China and North Korea. Russian has been trying to get us to abandon it ever since the days of Ronald Reagan, whose steadfast refusal to give it up when Gorbachev was demanding it was a major factor in our winning the Cold War.

Obama’s plan is to reduce American influence and prestige because he thinks we are too dominant in the world, and military power should be redistributed just as he wants to spread the wealth around inside our country. Our allies are dismayed by Obama’s foolish abandonment of our preeminent military strength because they depend on us for their own security.

Americans must elect U.S. Senators in November who commit to a policy of American military superiority. That’s the cornerstone of the strategy that protects America and deters aggression by evil countries that threaten our national security and the peace of the world.
