Obama Backtracks on Calling Americans "Enemies"
He won’t say “Islamic terrorist” but he’ll be quick to call Americans “enemies”.
GOP Leader John Boehner called out Obama on this outrageous remark yesterday.
“We’re not enemies President Obama. We are patriots.”
Obama backtracked on calling Americans “enemies” on Monday.
President Barack Obama said on Monday he should not have used the word “enemies” to describe his political opponents as Republicans sought to make an issue of the comment a day before congressional elections.
Obama, in an interview with talk radio host Michael Baisden, said, “I probably should have used the word ‘opponents’ instead of enemies.”
He was backtracking from a comment he made a week ago in an interview with Univision radio in which he sought to persuade Hispanics to vote for Democratic candidates instead of Republicans.
“If Latinos sit out the election instead of, ‘we’re going to punish our enemies and we’re going to reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us’ — if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s going to be harder,” Obama had said.
