Is Obama Now Ready for "Preconditions" Before Summit Meeting?

Hatched by Dafydd

Is President-in-Waiting Barack H. Obama finally agreeing to only hold a summit with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev after serious and substantial preconditions are met? It would appear so from this story:

Medvedev said he had spoken with Obama by telephone and hoped to meet him in person soon.

"We hope to create frank and honest relations with the new administration and resolve problems that we were not able to resolve with the current administration," he said.

But what about that precondition? Oh yes, here it is:

In an interview with French daily newspaper Le Figaro published on Thursday, Medvedev said Moscow had no choice but to react to U.S. plans to set up a network of missiles and radar systems near its own frontiers.

"But we are ready to abandon this decision to deploy the missiles in Kaliningrad if the new American administration, after analyzing the real usefulness of a system to respond to 'rogue states', decides to abandon its anti-missile system," he said.

Thank goodness President-elect Obama finally realizes that we cannot have a summit between the President of the United States and the head of some hostile state without some major precondition... and it appears that Obama is now considering whether to agree to that concession.

I'm sure that once Obama meets Russia's pre-meeting demand, Medvedev will be more than happy to join him for some of that hopey-changey talk we can believe in.

Reliable sources who must remain anonymous (because they are making it up as they go) predict that next quarter, Obama will agree to reduce Israel to its 1948 borders and disarm the Jewish state, formally recognize Tibet, Nepal, and Japan as provinces of the People's Republic of China, install Iran as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, and introduce sharia courts into Utah... following which, the Palestinians, Red Chinese, Hezbollah, and the Nation of Islam will each agree to bless Obama with a summit.

But at least no one can ever again accuse him of talking to other heads of state without preconditions!

The Iranians also have preconditions.

The beauty of this for the Russians and Iranians is that, regardless of what Obama says, they win a propaganda victory around the world the moment Obama agrees to meet.

My list of Obama's steps to wrecking the USA:
- appease Russia
- appease Iran
- betray Israel
- appease Venezuela
- betray Colombia
- raise taxes in recession
- 'fairness' doctrine reintroduction and extension
- 'subsidy' of media

The golden rule of successful negotiations is to motivate the opposition into make the first concession, from there it’s a trip-in-the-park.

Say good-bye to the farm.

It won't take him or the left-wing illuminati that long to wreck things. The need to sit down without preconditions is one thing he'll mess up with.
