The president tells his Russian counterpart to give him space until November when, if re-elected, he'll be able to give away missile defense and the rest of the store without political consequences.
It seems President Obama has a space program after all, one in which the Russians cool it on the dismantling of U.S. missile defenses until the least transparent administration in history can razzle-dazzle, smoke-and-mirror and divide-and-conquer its way into a second term.
One of the subtexts of the 2012 campaign has been the fear of what a second-term Obama will do unfettered by the need to get re-elected. ObamaCare, the shredding of the Constitution, spending the U.S. into bankruptcy, halting domestic energy production and gutting national and missile defense might be only a foretaste of what candidate Obama really meant when he promised to "fundamentally transform" America.
