As you may recall President Obama won the Nobel Peace prize for…something. Charles Krauthammer wrote this:
In a radio interview that aired Monday on Univision, President Obama chided Latinos who “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.’” Quite a uniter, urging Hispanics to exact political revenge on their enemies — presumably, for example, the nearly 60 percent of Americans who support the new Arizona immigration law.
I am having trouble picturing Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, JR or even Jimmy Carter using the phrase “punish our enemies”. To me this is the low point, so far, of the Obama presidency.
Has the warranty expired on that prize? Perhaps the Nobel committee would like it back.
