The president is making headlines in South Korea, not for the nuclear conference he's attending, but what he said to Russia's president.

An open microphone recorded a conversation between President Obama and outgoing Russian President Dmitry Mededev. Obama was overheard asking Mededev for "space" on the issue of missile defense, saying he would have much more flexibility after the election.

The White House said the comments reflect political reality: it's difficult to get things done in an election year, adding that domestic issues are keeping Obama from addressing long-standing problems with Russia.

    You, Beware, are probably a closet racist, come from a "good Christian home",and most likely are an all around idiot...he's a politician, just like any of those other "candidates". The idea of America and being American is not such a single sided view as yours any longer...

    Here it comes people! If he does another term, his destruction of America will be in full force. You tube The Battle of Athens. A true story of what will happen if Obama does 4 more years. Remember, there are more ex-military than police. And more conservatives with weapons than liberals. Who do you think will win?
