Boehner's Closing Argument: The President Of The United States Of America Shouldn't Be Calling Citizens "Enemies"

From Politico.

House Republican Leader John Boehner plans to hammer President Obama tonight during an election-eve rally in Cincinnati, pivoting off an Obama comment to Univision radio that got huge play in the right blogosphere. The president 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."

--From Boehner's prepared remarks: "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.'"

It's pretty scary to think what the next two years are going to bring in terms of rhetoric from Obama. He was vindictive and divisive in victory, one can only imagine what he's going to be like when he's backed into a corner and besieged from all sides.

Tomorrow is not the end of the line, it's really just the beginning. We need to stop the worst of the Obama abuses and tomorrow should go a long way in that effort.

Once the celebrating is over we're going to need to focus on getting Obama's post-American ass out of the Oval Office and destroying the left in this country. They need to be made so toxic that when future Democrats think of the Obama years, they recoil in horror. We need to move that party back towards the mainstream of America and away from the destructive leftist policies they've been following for decades. Democrats won't do it themselves, so we are going to have to do it for them.

Of course, we must be vigilant with out own side. That means holding the Boehners and the rest of the old guard to account and ensuring the huge class we send to the House tomorrow (and hopefully in '12) don't lose their way.

We let our guard down before and as a country we're paying the price. From now on everyone, Republican and Democrat, is on notice. We the people have got the whip hand and we can't let it go.
