Skip to comments.Obama: I “probably” shouldn’t have told Latinos to go out there and punish their “enemies”
Posted on 11/01/2010 6:35:00 PM PDT by Justaham
There were arguments being made that because Democrats hadnt gotten this done, that Latinos should vote against Democrats or just sit out the election. And I said, well, you cant punish your friends when the folks whove been supporting it. Now, I did also say if youre going to punish somebody, punish your enemies, and I probably should have used the word, opponents instead of enemies. Now the Republicans are saying that Im calling them enemies. What Im saying is youre an opponent of this particular provision, comprehensive immigration reform, which is something very different.
But the key issue here is that if you are supportive of comprehensive immigration reform, if you are supportive of health care reform, if you are supportive of making sure that credit card companies are treating us fairly, making sure that banks are properly regulated so they dont end up getting taxpayer bailouts if you support those things, then youve got to support those who helped to put those provisions into law. And youve got to make sure that those who are opposed to that legislation, that they get a clear message that they shouldnt be standing in the way of the progress, but rather we should be moving this country forward.

There's a word in the English language for that.
Typically requires two witnesses for a conviction.
He's got 300 million.
He meant what he said. What a complete turd of a President.
You probably shouldnt have tried to destroy America through the application of your marxist agenda...
he replayed the old “community organizer” tapes in his head before he said all this now he wants to repent? you are who you are ...........he ain’t no prezIdent of mine,that i know!
Isn’t such a statement failing to uphold the Constitution of the United States, where political speech and protest is protected? Is our Supreme Court going to continue to sit and suck their thumbs while the freedoms we have bled for go down the tubes?
The mask slips and we see an ideologue who wants views those who oppose his Socialist agenda as enemies, much in the same way the early Soviets saw the Russian middle class as enemies.
Well, Mr. Obama, what you shouldn’t be doing is segregating people into groups based on their race or ethnicity. Why don’t you be the first to stop this whole identity politics scam and start talking to Americans as Americans. You know, the whole content of our character and not the color of our skin thing? How refreshing it would be if you would just vow not to utter any words that even hinted that you noticed someones heritage or skin color or religion or ethnicity for one year. Do you think you could do that? Maybe then you could actually be the President of all of us. But I don’t think you could do that. Because it doesn’t serve your divisive agenda.
Now we see why this moron can’t order breakfast without a teleprompter.
I’m anxiously awaiting his Lonesome Rhodes debacle.
Yeah. Just like “The Cambridge Police acted stupidly.” Woops!! Let’s all have a beer feast. My apology!”
Probably? Probably? Obama got his REAL message across - that we're the enemy. Then he got his 'kiss butt' to the elites across that he 'probably' misspoke...
Typical no account, juvenile Obama opening his big mouth and letting his true feelings come out. Notice he does not apologize for calling millions of Americans “enemies”. No, it’s “the Republicans are saying...”, so that makes him restate what he “really” meant. Why can’t us stupid enemies just get what he means and stop twisting his words? I guess we’re just like policemen acting stupidly while we cling to our religion.
I can’t wait till tomorrow.
Tomorrow is my matathon party day. Nobody can ruin it.
I thougth this article was going to be about a bad choice of words because Mexicans are already punishing their enemies daily with automatic fire, grenades and beheadings.
...and I’ll see your true colors shining through...
ODumbo’s alligator mouth has overloaded his hummingbird @$$ yet again.
Obama acted stupidly.
Yea, whatever, Bambi. OMG, youre gonna get crushed tomorrow. Enjoy your last two years a lame duck..Can you quack?
“Obama: I probably shouldnt have told Latinos to go out there and punish their enemies”
He said what he believed! What he really felt! Everybody knows it!
I AM SPARTACUS!!!!
And I wear the label of your enemy as a freaking Badge of HONOR!!!
We’re All Kulaks Now
Did he say “your enemies” or “our enemies”? I forgot which it was.
LOL! Perpetually "stuck on stupid"...
I am glad he said it and it was caought on video because lets face it that is how he feels and that is not new to the likes of Freepers I am sure. His backtracking is only a facade the one time he told the truth
“Did he say your enemies or our enemies? I forgot which it was.”
As I recall he said “your enemies”. It was an incitement he was going for. Bring out the pitchforks.
I have no doubt there's all kinds of damning America-hating drivel that he's uttered... wish there was some audio of that.
And gives it 'legs' for another 24 hours. Snort. Idiot.
You can’t unring a bell
0bummer, we all know that “comprehensive immigration reform’ is a euphemism for 30 million more Demonrat votes.
Just as in a marriage, a person’s real character eventually reveals itself no matter how clever the act going in.
Dear President Obama:
Here is the difference between OPPONENTS and ENEMIES:
We are your OPPONENTS.
You and your colleagues are our ENEMIES.
Have a good day.
What I’m lookin’ at is no head.
Is teleprompter to blame or was he winging it again.
The lying Kenyan-born Muzzie asshole said exactly what he meant to say. Thanks Justaham.
The point isn't what he should or shouldn't have done. The point is what he did.
Sorry, but real life isn't a court room (real or faux) nor a classroom (real or faux), There are no do overs much less “Let me rephrase that”. You get one chance and one chance only.
If you are unwilling to learn that lesson and live by it then you have no business being in politics at any level,
Too bad Obama didn't have enough experience in the Illinois and US senates to learn that lesson. But then, if he had real experience in both houses (run for at least two reelections in each one) he would have a real record that even the MSM couldn't have whitewashed and, hence, would have never been elected in the first place.
Since I’m pulling night shift this week, I stayed up watching TV last night.
The O was on with political adds directed against generic Republicans.
Tuesday MY ENEMIES will be punished in the elections.
He spoke “Stupidly”.
Not that he cares what any of us thinks, unless it makes it harder for him to get his agenda passed.
