Obama Faces More Punishment From Enemies

Last week the president referred to his political opponents as "enemies." Yesterday, he was trying to soften that statement, but John Boehner isn't ready to let him off the hook.

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'.

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.

Promoting racial animus is foundational to the Democrats' brand, so the president's outrageous remarks have gone largely unnoticed. Imagine if the roles had been reversed.
