The One rallies the opposition

A serious lapse, I think. The NYT reports that in an interview taped last Friday for Univisión, a station popular with California latinos, The One uttered the following (audio here):
If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re going to 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.
Well, the demographics make that a smart move in, say, 2050 on current projections. But by then Mexico will have reclaimed the lands it lost in 1848 so it will be a whole different country. Right now, I can think of nothing more likely to bring out every white American who can crawl to the polling stations.
