We're not the enemy.

You may have heard about the President's recent interview on Univision where he identified the GOP as his "enemy".

Specifically, he said, “If Latinos 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’ — 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 2nd.”


Coming from the leader of the free world, that identifier brings with it a strong connotation.

And John Boehner has a serious problem with that. At the Kasich/Portman/Boehner rally this evening, the future Speaker is slated to state the following:
“Ladies and gentlemen, we have a president in the White House who referred to Americans who disagree with him as ‘our enemies.’ Think about that. He actually used that word. When Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush used the word ‘enemy,’ they reserved it for global terrorists and foreign dictators — enemies of the United States. Enemies of freedom. Enemies of our country.

“Today, sadly, we have president who uses the word ‘enemy’ for fellow Americans — fellow citizens. He uses it for people who disagree with his agenda of bigger government — people speaking out for a smaller, more accountable government that respects freedom and allows small businesses to create jobs. Mr. President, there's a word for people who have the audacity to speak up in defense of freedom, the Constitution, and the values of limited government that made our country great. We don't call them ‘enemies.’ We call them ‘patriots.’”


  1. Yeah, because for 8 years all I heard was "If you're not with us, you're against us" and when people spoke up against our President it was considered "treason" or they were thrown out of the people's house when they wore t-shirts with slogans that didn't jive with the administration.

    Have Republicans been hit on the head recently and have short-term memories loss? Funny, I didn't hear Mr. Boehner chiding those individuals who have called for the death of President Obama as "treasonists" or wrong.

  2. Oh, good gravy.

  3. Funny I don't remember anyone charged with treason for speaking out against W...

    And seriously? Boehner is supposed to chide some nutcase who called for Obama's death? Whatever dude.

    Try as you might, you can't defend what Obama said. Bush never called fellow Americans "enemies" simply because they deisagreed with him.

    Hope you enjoyed the last 2 years. Because the party is over. Your Messiah blew it. Big time.
