In public, the US and Russia have some disagreements on European missile defense. In private, thanks to a hot mic at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, we know that behind the scenes President Obama is saying to Medvedev and Putin “if you back off this year you can have it your way after I’m re-elected.”

Transcript from ABC News:

President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

I don’t know specifically what level of “flexibility” (read: capitulation) Obama has in mind. It’s obviously something that would be domestically unpopular enough to want to avoid publicizing in an election year and instead reserve for a possible second term that would without a doubt make his first term look miserly by comparison.

They should re-tool the Volt assembly line that is temporarily shut down and use it to manufacture re-set buttons in the interim.
