Obama, Like Nixon, Calls Political Opponents “Enemies”

Posted by Steve Markowitz on October 26, 2010

The longer President Obama stays on the campaign trail, the more bizarre his comments become. In an interview aired on Univision radio this week aimed at energizing Hispanic voters for Democrats, the President pushed immigration reform, a popular issue for some in this demographics.

So far, so good, but then Obama’s talk degenerated into something more worthy of a Community Organizer, not the President of the United States.  Obama criticized Republicans, such as Senator John McCain, for their positions relating to immigration saying: “Those aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.”  How out of touch is this President?  With an approval rating in the mid 40’s, it is he who obviously does not share America’s values.

Obama then went from the ridiculous to the outrageous when he said: “If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, “We’re going to punish our enemies and we’re gonna 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, and that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2.” The President is saying that Americans who disagree with him, i.e. most eligible voters polled, are “enemies”.  This crosses the line in our democracy not been seen since Richard Nixon was president.  But there is a difference: while Nixon had his “enemies list”, he at least knew it was wrong and hid it.  Obama, the narcissist, seems to believe that voters owe him loyalty.

Obama has been consistent since the early days of his campaign for the Presidency.  He campaigned as a far Leftist and is governing the same.  He showed arrogance and treats the People similarly since.  His experience was that of a Community Organizer and he is governing as if that still held that position.  Some grow with new jobs and others are overwhelmed by them.

One area Obama misrepresented to the People was his promise to be a “Post -Racial President”.  Instead, he has attempted to divide Americans by the color of their skin, religion and language in an effort to gain political advantage.  How pitiful.

    Steve,

    We’ll remember that Obama also said way back in 2008 – “if they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun, because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl.” Is this what Presidents say?

    Metaphor or not, these are the words of a dirty Chicago politician, the real Obama, a thug, not the Christ-like image that the media would have us believe Obama is. I think it’s becoming very clear to most Americans (even a growing percentage of blacks) that Obama is well suited for urban leftist politics, but he’s certainly not Presidential material, or representative of the great people who drive the US economy, or who have core American values. The media did and are doing their very best to dress him up as something he’s not.

  2. Yes Chris, he is another Chicago politician. And he is just Community Organizer. The media is greatly responsible for the illusion otherwise. They are also responsible for his arrogance and lack of growth since becoming President. Had they roughed up Obama as they would any other politician, he may have grown with the job.

    Steve
