Is Obama’s hot-mic conversation with Medvedev treasonous?

After hearing and reading many commentaries on President Obama’s “hot mic” conversation with Russian President Medvedev on Monday, I hold to what I wrote that day on the News page of this blog.

This was the conversation:

Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir [Putin].

This is what I wrote on Monday:

Is this treason by Obama? I think it warrants a criminal investigation. Obama appears to be conspiring with a hostile government to take actions that are beneficial to this hostile government and that the U.S. electorate has a right to know about and would forbid.

On the other hand, if Obama truly believes that his actions are beneficial to the U.S., then on what grounds can he delay such action? It appears that he is delaying such beneficial action in order to be re-elected.

Either way, Obama seems to be using deceit in order to sacrifice the interests of the U.S. to something else.

  1. I agree with you Ron. Obama is pretty much indicating to Russia that the topic is not something he is thinking about at this time. It’s like a student who neglected to work on his project and fails to meet the deadline and then asks for an extended due date. He is asking for space, as if he is at the mercy of Putin. Then he is promising that if the extension is granted, that he will also be more “flexible”… in other words, “I will let you have more of what you want”.

    This is revolting. And I wonder why this wasn’t bigger news? The fact that the Republican party did not take more issue with this is discouraging because it means they have no leader who sees this for what it is, and that they too would make the same mistakes.
