    Obama Said. "You must punish your enemies."


    How should the opposition or the enemy if you will treat a president who makes such statments? Does he deserve R E S P E C T?

    If you choose yes please explain why.

    I would imagine that he considers them enemies considering all the disrespect he has been shown since throwing his hat in the ring. Tell us Willow, when did you ever respect him? Were you one of those folks that pissed and moaned about the way liberals ragged on Bush and disrespected him?

    No American is the enemy of another American. Had I had any respect for him, he would have lost it now. However, he did that a looooong time ago.

    I respected him right up until the moment he said "Wearing a flag pin is fake patriotism, then he grabbed his crotch and then his wife said "For the first time in my adult life I'm proud of my country." I think she was 45. Yep,, right up til then. and then the Jeramiah Wright bullshit hit the fan.. Nope. Not respecting that. And, he hasn't shown me better either.

    I made a statement in another thread ala this whole kick hes been on for a few months, ( and there are examples during his campaign) where in hes always the guy floating above acrimony, hostility name calling etc. is a a media construct, they beleive it of thmslevs and almost without fail they give him that benefit and don't want to hear what they don't want to hear.

    I will say to be fair there have been the odd one offs who have said same, TNR had a piece a month or so ago calling him out on this very same issue.

    he gets nasty and he says things better left to surrogates if at all...... its not presidential.

    Yes. Treat everyone with respect whether they deserve it or not. If you do not treat people with respect you are putting yourself at their level.

    An Enemy is someone that is seeking to do you harm. Even though the Bible says "love thine enemies" , for a president that is not a possible. A presidents first job requirement is the defense of the country and to protect and defend it from all enemies, foreign and domestic. So I as an American have no problem with that statement. Saying that, I do not know the context in which it was spoken, whether it was in reference to a real enemy or a political opponent. If it was in reference to a political opponent then the statement is absurd because you do not punish political opponents, just defeat them.

    Respect is earned... so right after he came on the scene and became a Senator, he should have began to at least try to earn some respect.
    All he did was vote "present" and to tear down the very nation that gave him everything in the world.

    I would'nt shake that mans hand, and yes... my vote was "spit on the ground"... or maybe on his stupid shoe with the fake hole in it. :rolleyes:

    :lmao: respect.... :lol: yeah right!
