This is the first time in presidential history this has been done and it needed to be done to Obama. Because of the open-mic fiasco early this year that caught Obama telling Russian President Medvedev he needed more 'space' and after he was elected that he would "have more flexibility" to make a deal. Not taking any chances of having our 'Missile Secrets' given away, the House inserted a Amendment in the Fiscal 2013 Defense Spending Bill which bars Obama from sharing classified missile defense technology with them. It passed yesterday 326 to 90 with bipartisan support.

What does this tell us? It tells us that we have a president that many are realizing who can't be trusted with keeping our national security secrets intact. This is something to think about because it is a national security issue that we have a man sitting in the White House that was born with split allegiances, something the founders did not want in a future president. This inserted amendment indicates 'no confidence' that our president would protect and defend the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic in the oath he took.

The Fiscal 2013 Defense spending bill that passed the House 326 to 90 with bipartisan support Thursday evening included an amendment that would prohibit President Barack Obama from making good on a deal with Russia that he appeared to hint at earlier this year.

Rep. Mike Turner (R-Ohio) said the amendment would bring peace of mind for those who were still suspicious about the hot-mic exchange.

“This amendment would say, ‘Mr. President, you won’t tell us what your secret deal is, but that secret deal better not include sharing classified information of the United States with the Russians about our missile defense,’” Turner said.

You're reading too much into it. The house is controlled by the republicans. They're going to take everything to the extreme to make Obama look bad.

Unfortunately the house isn't smart enough to realize that.

WTF are you pasting this same thing in multiple forums?

Breaking: House Passes Amendment That Bars Obama From Sharing Secrets With Russia - US Message Board - Political Discussion Forum

In terms of "what we know", that would be not much given the the things you're talking about aren't even shown in that useless article to which you linked. The amendment was likely slipped in to appeal to the tin foil hat wearing trailer park idiots who fill big parts of the Republican party and make up good chunk of the people posting on here. Those idiots always fall for things like this as they're uneducated and don't bother to learn what they're talking about before they start whining.

Its funny how the country focus's so much on the POTUS. The Congress is utterly pathetic, worst approval ever, single digits. Reid wont table anything, and Boehner cries all the damn time. Worthless bunch of people.

This amendment doesn't cover what O 'might' say when he 'think's' the mic is off.

Good grief. If they can't find something substantive with which to attack the President, the GOP simply invents an issue and the gullible predictably start wringing their hands and crying, "OMG! OBAMA!"
