Putin To Obama: Dimitri Transmitted Your Information To Me And I Am Not Impressed

Obama asked for "flexibility" from Russia to surrender on missile defense, Putin says, No Time And Space For You!

The White House confirmed in a statement late Wednesday that Putin told Obama on a phone call he'd be sending Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in his place. Putin claimed he was too busy finalizing cabinet appointments to make the May 18-19 G-8 Summit at Camp David. Yet the Obama administration had moved the gathering to the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland from the planned venue in Chicago partly to accommodate Putin.

Whether or not the schedule change marked an intentional snub, the let-down comes less than a week after the nation's military chief of staff warned that Russia would consider preemptive strikes, if a dispute with the United States over a Europe-based missile defense system worsens.

Russia vehemently opposes the planned placement of radars and missile interceptors in Romania and Poland, saying they would undermine Russia's nuclear deterrent. The United States says the system is needed to protect against potential missile attacks by Iran and that the installations could not act against Russian missiles.

Putin probably figures if gays didn't have to wait until after the election to get theirs from Obama why should he have to wait for his?

Much like SSM, Obama has been clear all along on his intentions about surrendering our missile defense program.

Keep in mind Obama has already hurt missile defense plans through proposed decommissioning of Navy ships that are key to his supposed commitment to the program. Republicans are desperately fighting to save this crucial capability.

Normally I'd point out that showing weakness emboldens an adversary but the fact is Obama and Putin aren't adversaries when it comes to destroying the US' missile defense capabilities. They simply differ on how and when to best accomplish it.
