Polish tabloid: Is Obama going to sell us out to Russia on missile defense?

posted at 6:42 pm on March 26, 2012 by Allahpundit

Go look at the screenshot and translation at BuzzFeed. I don’t get it. Why would Poland be nervous about its western allies leaving it under the thumb of a menacing authoritarian neighbor?

If/when O’s reelected (shudder) and gives up eastern European missile defense entirely, I sure hope it’s for something tangible in return — Russian concessions on Syria, maybe — and not another sub-moronic “reset” with Putin. The concession he’ll probably seek, as Heritage’s James Carafano points out, is some sort of reduction in Russia’s nuclear arsenal. The One’s goal is “nuclear zero,” not lots of nukes + lots of defensive measures, so if he has to trade missile defense to shrink the overall global stockpile, hey. I hope it’ll comfort the Poles to know that while there’s nothing stopping Russia from nuking them except the dubious promise of a NATO retaliation if they do, they might not be nuked quite as much.

In the meantime, Romney and Gingrich are making Obama pay:

“This is no time for our president to be pulling his punches with the American people,” Romney said while campaigning in San Diego. “And not telling us what he’s intending to do with regards to our missile defense system, with regards to our military might and with regards to our commitment to Israel … I will make it very clear that the relationship we have around the world is one where America will be strong, that America’s strength and commitment to our friends and allies will be unshakable and unwavering.”

Gingrich called the exchange with Medvedev an “extraordinary moment caught on tape where the president basically said to a Russian leader, ‘Please wait until after the election so I can sell out.’

“If you read what he said, it is the most blatant comment about selling out American defenses I think any American president’s ever made and I don’t see how any American could trust him ever again after that comment,” Gingrich said. “I mean, he thinks it’s in private and he’s saying to the Russians, please quote ‘give me some space’ so I can be re-elected and then I’ll be free to do anything I want to. Well, that just told you how radically left-wing Obama’s going to be in the second term.”

Is that actually true, though? Daniel Drezner points to Reagan, Dubya, and Bush 43 as examples of presidents who actually drifted more towards the center on foreign policy in their second terms than towards their respective bases. The reason is simple: As time wears on and unforeseen developments happen abroad, presidents become more reactive than proactive. They see what’s working and what isn’t in their favored approach and adapt, which means inching away from that approach. O, remember, came into office promising he’d talk to anyone without preconditions, but once he realized he couldn’t charm Iran into giving up nuclear weapons, it was sanctions and Stuxnet and, maybe soon, war. (Another example is him borrowing heavily from, and even expanding on, Bush’s counterterror playbook. You didn’t hear him talk much on the trail in ’08 about drone strikes on American citizens like Awlaki, huh?) The problem is, from his stalling on entitlement reform to cheap populist panders like “the Buffett Rule” to the transparent charade of pretending he’s opposed to gay marriage, every move Obama makes seems calculated to maximize his reelection odds. Whether that’s because his top priority is to protect policy initiatives like ObamaCare from early in his term or if he’s just so ambitious that winning again means more than anything, I honestly don’t know what he’d do if he had a free hand as a lame duck. Would he abandon missile defense? Well … yeah, maybe. Want to chance it?

He is not only going to sell out Poland. The Russians have made clear that Obama MUST tell them how to evade missile defense. He is going to sell out America and this conversation has every indication that was what was being discussed. Tech details.

Where are all the military officers who took an oath to protect and defend the United States Constitution and America? What the hell are we paying them for?

And btw, ref the violent black criminal Martin (Obama’s proxy son) who got what he deserved –

The racist-in-chief is going to use this for all it’s worth to get votes. He’s going to try to stretch it out long enough to violate the 2nd Amendment, declare martial law, and suspend the elections. I note that “hoodies” with “re-elect barack obama 2012″ printed on them are being advertised for $42.99. My disgust is reaching new depths. The 6’3″ football player T. Martin was on a 10-day school suspension for assaulting a bus driver. He was walking around in a gated community at night wearing his gangsta hoodie. He broke Zimmerman’s nose and bashed his head in. Zimmerman has said that Martin went for his (Zimmerman’s) gun. I don’t doubt it. He had made comments indicating he was a gang member. For anyone who still doubts the pResident is a racist, where is his outrage for the white child doused with gasoline and set on fire by two black teenage thugs on his own front porch who told him that he “deserved” it? Where is his outrage for the two white college students who were gunned down by blacks over the weekend? Where is his condemnation of the “Wanted” posters being displayed by Black Panthers? Has he said ONE SINGLE THING to restore calm and reason? NO. He and his ilk are THRILLED that this has happened and they intend to use it for votes. They are RACISTS. Blacks = 13% of the US population and commit 51% of the crime. Black males are seven times more likely to have a prison record than white males. Blacks commit 97% of the crimes against other blacks. Black on white crime is increasing. When has this “president” EVER condemned a crime committed by a black against a white person – even a 13 year old CHILD?

RasThavas on March 26, 2012 at 6:54 PM

Back in the 80′s I was speaking with a senior Polish officer and in the course of the conversation he said it was his fondest hope that Poland would be invaded by the Chinese.

Kind of a shocker to me at the time…but he explained further that in order for China to invade Poland they’d have to destroy Russia first.

There remains little love between Russia and Poland…no matter what Obama may think he might believe presently.

Funny in a way, though, just a few short years ago seemed most of Europe was just fawning and swooning over this Obama guy, like he was gonna stop the tides from rising and have it rain Skittles all across the globe whilst all of the good people would be singing Kumbaya.

Reality bites.

I hope the world, America included, comes to a rapid realization that Obama is an empty suit who would sell out his own relatives for a vote or two. Imagine what he’d do with people he doesn’t know or even wish to know.

299 days until we inaugurate a real President again…unless we all turn stupid in November.

US missile defense complex in Poland
***************************************

On September 17, 2009, The White House issued a statement

saying that the US “no longer planned to move forward”

with the project. According to President Obama, new intelligence had shown Iran was pursuing short-range and medium-range missile development, rather than long-range, necessitating a shift in strategy.[28][29] The outlines of a reformulated, scaled-down project began to emerge in October, 2009 (see below).[8]
=========================================================

Polish response
****************

The Polish government responded nervously. Some politicians voiced concern that the country would lose its special status in Washington, and that the move by Obama was an appeasement to Moscow. Jaroslaw Gowin, with Poland’s governing Civic Platform party, said Obama’s decision had been made independently of Polish sensitivities. Former Polish President Lech Wałęsa said he was deeply disappointed by the new US administration’s plans. He stated: “The Americans have always only taken care of their own interests and they have used everyone else.”[30] According to a September 18, 2009 poll, 56 percent of Poles supported Obama’s decision and only 30 percent were against it.[29][31] Leader of main Polish opposition party, Jarosław Kaczyński, claimed that the decision of abandoning the shield was announced on September 17 not by accident [32] (the date is of great symbolic value to Poland, as on September 17, 1939 Poland was invaded by the Soviet Union). Polish newspapers showed mixed responses to the discontinuation, with some seeing it as a positive action,[33] and some saw it with very negative connotations.[33][34]

However Slawomir Nowak, a senior adviser to Polish Prime Minister Tusk, responded positively to the proposed short and medium range missile systems replacement of the long range systems: “If this system becomes reality in the shape Washington is now suggesting, it would actually be better for us than the original missile shield programme,” he stated. “We were never really threatened by a long-range missile attack from Iran,” he told TVP Info.[35][36]

I honestly don’t know what he’d do if he had a free hand as a lame duck. Would he abandon missile defense? Well … yeah, maybe. Want to chance it ?

I thought this piece was written by Ed, sorry! Nice to see the mask slip off AP…..All hail the Messiah!

dmann on March 26, 2012 at 7:43 PM

Yes – next question.

gophergirl on March 26, 2012 at 7:43 PM

I’m surprised they are even asking the question. This man cannot be trusted and every reasonble thinking American and foreign leader knows it

rjoco1 on March 26, 2012 at 7:45 PM

Of course he is, you fools.

Jaibones on March 26, 2012 at 7:46 PM

There is precedent to this conversation. According to Palestinian media, POTUS Obama said this to Abu Mazen,The Palestinian Authority leader; “AFTER THE ELECTION WE WILL DEAL WITH ISRAEL.”

WTF does THAT mean? He will flush Israel down the drain like he does to all of our allies.

We took our granddaughters to the Reagan Library this weekend, where they saw a good exhibit about Reagan’s role in freeing up Poland. Obama will likely try to reverse that. I don’t think Obama has any understanding of what it means for a people to be free. Or, if he does, he does not like the concept.

In a sane world, articles of impeachment would already be spewing forth from a Congressional printer, and the co sponsors would be bi partisan. A select group of senior Democratic Senators and Representatives would have asked for a meeting with Obama for the purpose of telling him to honorably resign and save the nation the strife of an impeachment trial. If this was a sane world, but like last night’s episode of Once Upon a Time, we have all passed through The Looking Glass.

That is a dog bites man non story. Obviously the white kid drove them to lash out in the pain of being gangsta with little bling.

BL@KBIRD on March 26, 2012 at 8:00 PM

Maybe it’s time for Poland to consider nuking-up.

diogenes on March 26, 2012 at 8:09 PM

Come on folks what do you have against PEACE IN OUR TIME. Come to think of it that didn’t work out well the last time.

chemman on March 26, 2012 at 8:15 PM

Is Obama going to sell us out to Russia on missile defense?

In a word, yes.

TulsAmerican on March 26, 2012 at 8:17 PM

I’m from Eastern Europe and my entire family is still there. The swooning and love stopped the day King Obama shelved those defense missiles in 2009.

JPeterman on March 26, 2012 at 7:01 PM

I remember that day, just weeks into his administration, because it told me all I ever needed to know about the kind of person Obama is. Poland has been a true ally. Poland should be worried, and so shoud the USA.

What will he do in his second term, God forbid? Anything he can get away with.

DrStock on March 26, 2012 at 8:34 PM

If/when O’s reelected (shudder) and gives up eastern European missile defense entirely, I sure hope it’s for something tangible in return

Magic Beans?

Tim_CA on March 26, 2012 at 8:35 PM

Daniel Drezner points to Reagan, Dubya, and Bush 43 as examples…

So the Republicans drifted left. From this, perhaps we should predict Obama would drift left too.

Or perhaps what the Republicans did will have no predictive value in a second Obama term.

I don’t think we can look to recent Republicans, or Bill Clinton, to predict what Obama would do.

RightKlik on March 26, 2012 at 8:36 PM

Impeachment.

Now.

Midas on March 26, 2012 at 8:40 PM

Obama would sell us out for an Ipod of Putin’s speeches.

gbear on March 26, 2012 at 8:41 PM

Is zero going to sell us out? Da.

tbear44 on March 26, 2012 at 8:42 PM

Remember this, said by Obowma in 2008?

“Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union. They don’t pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us,” Obama said.

And this in 2010:

A solid B+, my a..

dthorny on March 26, 2012 at 8:43 PM

We better keep him out of the White House not only for the sake of the Polish but for our own sake and there’s no telling what he’ll do if he stays at the 1600 address.

mixplix on March 26, 2012 at 8:48 PM

Hey Poland! With remarks like that, Obama has ALREADY sold you out…

Khun Joe on March 26, 2012 at 9:10 PM

Yeah,

I’d be nervous if I were the Poles. This would be the second time the western powers have sold them out.

The question asked by the Polish paper is rhetorical. Of course that’s Obama’s plan.

john.frank on March 26, 2012 at 9:30 PM

Is Obama going to sell us out to Russia on missile defense?

Yes, but the good news is, like Iran you have seven months to prepare.

antipc on March 26, 2012 at 9:57 PM

America, as we know and love it, won’t survive another Obama term. Quite apart from the debt bomb that’s going to destroy the country (and most likely bring the rest of the global economy crashing down) he won’t have to worry about the ONE THING that’s reigned him in so far- his desperate need to be re-elected or elected to higher office. There’s no-where for him to go, he has nothing to lose and no need to hide his radical nature any more.

A second Obama term will be the Bill Ayers Presidency- and I don’t mean Ayers will be personally involved, I mean that the 60s radicals will have their man in the Oval Office. This is what Breitbart tried to warn people about. See his CPAC speech if you missed it.

The Constitution’s already on its way to being valueless (contraception mandate, Obamacare), it’ll be just a distant memory by 2016 if Obama wins again.

People often talk about the fall of Rome and what it must have been like- well, folks, you’re living it right now. America is collapsing as we watch. Paul Ryan suggested a plan to try and save the nation but he’s actively being opposed by Democrats and the media!

America faces a clear and unequivocal economic Armageddon- and thus far the only plan to prevent it has been fought to a standstill. It’s beyond absurd. Democrats have no plan, but they don’t like Ryan’s so…bring on the end of the world! They’d rather see America fail than let a Republican save her. Given the severity of the situation (see the charts of the Obama budget Geitner presented Congress recently), I would go so far as to suggest that it’s an act of treason or of deliberate sabotage for them to prevent action being taken. Rome’s burning ($15 trillion in debt and $1 trillion per year deficits means that the blaze is already well under-way) and they’re playing fiddles.

Obama’s not going to do anything about it in his second term- and by 2016 it’ll be too late.

Jay Mac on March 26, 2012 at 10:06 PM

One thing you folks are missing is that EVERY serious political leader in the world (DinnerJacket doesn’t count) has Obama at their mercy. Just one public mention of Obama’s possibly illegitimacy as a reason to refuse cooperating with him, and the birth certificate issue will resurface with vengeance, and without a chance for MSM to stifle or laugh it out. That’s the reason why Obama keeps being over backwards for every king, sheik, and president.
