This statement from President Obama is both quite illuminating into his mindset and stunningly incredible as far as his audacity. In this audio clip Obama tries to persuade Latinos in a Univision appearance to get out and vote for Democrats so that they can retain control of congress and continue his socialistic agenda.
That in itself is fine and expected for a politician. What is amazing is his characterization of those that disagree with his agenda. In other words, conservatives. Obama says, "If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, 'We're gonna punish our enemies and we're gonna reward our friends...' " then he will not be able to continue on his path towards Marxism.
President Obama evidently sees a huge portion of the American populace not as those that simply have a different political philosophy but as "enemies" that must be thwarted and overcome. It almost seems that there is a tone of regret in his voice in this clip when he says he is not a king, as then he really could rule with impudent dictate and not need congressional approval for his dangerously un-American policies that we "enemies" refuse to endorse.
Again, I find this attitude to be incongruent with Obama's campaign rhetoric where he promised to be a President for "all Americans" and would be post-racial and post-partisan. Instead he seems to have inflamed tensions and has proven to be hyper-racial and uber-partisan throughout his first two years in office, as indicated yet again by his characterization of half of the country as "enemies". Shame on you, Mr. President! You are our President for all Americans and you should start behaving as such!
