As promised, Boehner had some choice words for Obama, concerning his “punish our enemies” quip:
A day before the pivotal midterm elections, President Barack Obama pulled back from remarks he made last month when he called on Latino voters to punish their “enemies” on Election Day.
In an interview Monday with radio host Michael Baisden, Obama said he should have used the word “opponents” instead of enemies.
I’m not seeing an apology…I’m seeing self victimization:
“Now the Republicans are saying that I’m calling them enemies,” Obama said. “What I’m saying is you’re an opponent of this particular provision, comprehensive immigration reform, which is something very different.”
The mean ol’ Republicans are saying that because he did call them enemies.
‘We’re gonna punish our enemies, and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us’
But I’m sure Obama is sorry…. his divisive words were caught on tape so close to an election.
