Obama’s non-retraction retraction

Obama, in an interview with talk radio host Michael Baisden, said, “I probably should have used the word ‘opponents’ instead of enemies,” when he spoke on Univision the previous week about how Hispanics should feel toward Republicans.

He only probably should have called Republicans “opponents” instead of “enemies”? So he’s not taking the statement back, and he’s not apologizing for it.

The man is trash. He’s not worthy of being a dog walker in Riverside Park, let alone president of the United States.

And guess what? Tonight for the first time NBC Nightly News saw fit to report Obama’s “enemies” comment, a week after he made it. What made NBC decide to report it? The fact that he said today that he “probably” shouldn’t have said it. In other words, they only reported his shocking statement AFTER he had distanced himself from it. Furthermore, they didn’t report the statement as being objectionable in itself, but presented it in the context of John Boehner attacking the president over it. The liberal media never chastise a Democratic president in their own words for something wrong he has done, or present any wrongdoing by him as wrongdoing. Instead, his wrongdoing is seen through the filter of a Republican partisan attack on the president for his wrongdoing.

In short, what a liberal does is never wrong in itself; it’s only wrong because it gives conservatives a chance to attack him.
