George Will discusses President Obama's open mic comments on the "This Week" roundtable.

ABC's George Will said that President Obama's open mic comments asking the Russian president Dmitri Medvedev for "flexibility" and "space" on missile defense until after November's election reinforced perceptions that he is "kind of slippery, very aloof, and mildly disdainful" of the views of American voters.

"What this does, what people say when no one's listening, or so they think, gives you some insight into who Mr. Obama really is," Will said on this morning's "This Week" roundtable. "And this reinforces a narrative, which is that he's kind of slippery, very aloof, and mildly disdainful of those people who inhibit his flexibility: AKA the American public."
