Derbyshire's enemy

How odd. I recently went to hear John Derbyshire speak at Lolita Bar, and he explained that America doesn't currently have enemies--which he defined as existential threats like Nazi Germany posed to England. Al Qaeda and the like, he explained, were just "problems," not "enemies."

Well, now it turns out that Derbyshire has found an enemy (emphasis added):
I don't get the sensitivity and slack-cutting towards Obama that Charles Murray's post typified. Obama's the enemy — a far-left Democrat. We should be attacking him at every weak point. That's politics.
