    WASHINGTON – A day before the pivotal midterm elections, President Barack Obama pulled back from remarks he made last month when he called on Latino voters to punish their "enemies" on Election Day. In an interview Monday with radio host Michael Baisden, Obama said he should have used the word "opponents" instead of enemies.

    Wow did he really say that? I missed that story...

    What an extremely stupid thing for a president to say.

    Kind of like closing the barn door after the cows get out, isn't it? He said it, he meant it.

    yes he did....and he only took it back because it looked bad, he didn't immediately apologize, because he meant it....

    i don't recall any sitting president calling his political opponents and american citizens "enemies"
