The only question I have is which lie will Obama lead off with tonight, in the last debate, and what new ones will he add to the list?
I especially look forward to one about his off-mic words to Medvedev where he promised him after his last “election” he could be more flexible. There is no way to parse that remark, like he always does, to try to mean anything else. The lie about that might be historical.
“I understand you. I transmit this information to Vladimir, and I stand with you.”
“On all these issues, but particularly missile defence, this can be solved.
But it’s important for him to give me space. This is my last election…
after my election I have more flexibility.”
“I understand,” Mr Medvedev responded. “I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
The one I always look forward to hearing is that he is so great on foreign policy. Maybe he will lead with that one, just to break the ice and try to raise expectations. But the best part of all will be the finale, it usually is. Which one will he end with to seal the deal? So many to choose from.
