President Barack Obama offered an extended explanation here Tuesday of the hot mic moment that caught him asking Russia’s president for some “space” and “flexibility” until after November’s election.
“The only way I get this stuff done is If I’m consulting with the Pentagon, with Congress, if I’ve got bipartisan support and frankly, the current environment is not conducive to those kinds of thoughtful consultations,” Obama told reporters following a meeting with the presidents of Russia and Kazakhstan. “I think the stories you guys have been writing over the last 24 hours is pretty good evidence of that.”
After meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Monday, Obama was caught asking the departing Russian leader to convey a message to incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin: “On all these issues, particularly on missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space,” he said.
On Tuesday, Obama said his comments, though not intended for public consumption, were “not a matter of hiding the ball — I’m on record” about wanting to reduce nuclear weapons stockpiles. Though he spoke bluntly to Medvedev, Obama insisted that the thrust of his remarks was in line with what he said in his Monday speech at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies and in other public statements.
Obama’s remarks — in response to a reporter’s question — came after a string of Republicans attacked him on Monday.
American ally Poland fears Obama is going to sell them out to Russia over missile defense.
