Obama: I “probably” shouldn’t have told Latinos to go out there and punish their “enemies”
hotair.com ^ | 1-1-10 | Allahpundit

Posted on 11/01/2010 6:35:00 PM PDT by Justaham

There were arguments being made that because Democrats hadn’t gotten this done, that Latinos should vote against Democrats or just sit out the election. And I said, well, you can’t punish your friends when — the folks who’ve been supporting it. Now, I did also say if you’re 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 I’m calling them enemies. What I’m saying is you’re 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 don’t end up getting taxpayer bailouts — if you support those things, then you’ve got to support those who helped to put those provisions into law. And you’ve got to make sure that those who are opposed to that legislation, that they get a clear message that they shouldn’t be standing in the way of the progress, but rather we should be moving this country forward.

Encourage foreign nationals to "punish" Americans?

There's a word in the English language for that.

Typically requires two witnesses for a conviction.

He's got 300 million.

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.

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.

Let's not forget the “income group” which must be demagogued to keep oppressing the producers so the wealth can be redistributed. The income tax is immoral and must end.

“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.

"O" says this stuff as president... can you imagine what things he said behind the scenes as a U.S. senator... as a state senator... as a community organizer?

I have no doubt there's all kinds of damning America-hating drivel that he's uttered... wish there was some audio of that.

Tells you exactly HOW BAD that comment has played out; he has to take his last sound bite on election eve and use it to back off of the statement.

And gives it 'legs' for another 24 hours. Snort. Idiot.

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.

For an Ivory League law school graduate Obama is really dumb.

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.

It's like the "bitter clinger" comment he made in 2008 to a group of supporters in San Francisco--he was making his comments to a sympathetic audience and it never occurred to him that others might learn of his remarks and find them offensive.

Not that he cares what any of us thinks, unless it makes it harder for him to get his agenda passed.
