Who are YOUR Enemies?
Well first, let’s hear the radio broadcast – just so you know it’s real:
Now that was an interesting bit of monologue, hey? (H/T to NeoNeocon) I’ll quote the same portion of the WaPo article Neo does – it is definitely the most concise and well, pointed bit of commentary around – and as she suggests, hop over and read the whole thing!
In a radio interview that aired Monday on Univision, President Obama chided Latinos who “sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.’ ” Quite a uniter, urging Hispanics to go to the polls to exact political revenge on their enemies – presumably, for example, the near-60 percent of Americans who support the new Arizona immigration law.
This from a president who won’t even use “enemies” to describe an Iranian regime that is helping kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. This from a man who rose to prominence thunderously declaring that we were notblue states or red states, not black America or white America or Latino America – but the United States of America.
This is how the great post-partisan, post-racial, New Politics presidency ends – not with a bang, not with a whimper, but with a desperate election-eve plea for ethnic retribution.
Gee, the president is sooo inspiring. *aack* No, no… he’s right! Don’t go out to punish anybody in this election – go out to put it on a course… mmm, well, a course you can believe in! Get out and VOTE! Remember November!
