"Punish Your Enemies"

This is beyond the pale.  For an American president to join these three words together and utter them with passion to a portion of the electorate is just plain dangerous.  For the person who represents all of the American people, not just Democrats, liberals, or hyphenated Americans, to say to a specific group these three words is bordering on maniacal.

The president is a political creature and in a political job.  That is true.  During elections the president will accordingly make arguments and use rhetoric.  That comes with the territory.  But as president, he or she must also hold back and be an example.  The president, being the only elected official by the votes of all the people, must show some statesmanship.  The president must represent us all.  The idea he would urge, demand retribution or retaliation or inflict harm of pain upon another group of Americans is beyond obscene.  Sure, a president can get a little wound up and say things out of bounds, but it should never be something this extreme.  This is not a good man.  Obama is just plain bad.

A president is supposed to transcend groups of Americans.  The president is supposed to do what is in the best interests of the whole of the electorate and population.  The president is not supposed to direct one group or identify a specific cohort as opposing another.  As difficult as it may be, a president is to coalesce the sides, settle the dispute, and move on.  This man has no intention of doing any of these things.  Obama is hellbent on dividing, separating, conquering, and making one group pay for the wrongs he’s imagined.  Instead of being a person who moves us forward, Obama has become the person who thrusts us backward into a past of division and discord.

Our president may be commander-in-chief, but that is because we decided we wanted civilian control over the military.  We didn’t want to have a military that could identify and eradicate a group they didn’t agree with.  We have a civil society with opponents, not enemies.  We have disagreements, not vendettas.  We are a common people who may not believe the same things, but we agree to disagree.  We are not enemies of one another.
President Obama showed that he isn’t a good, decent, thoughtful man.  He is nothing more than a thuggish lout who is a petulant whining little brat.  He refuses to behave in a way that is presidential or statesmanlike.  He is little more than a common racketeer who has enemies lists and participates in street brawls.
We need to send some baby sitters for this moron before he destroys this whole country bit by bit.
