Skip to comments.Rahm Emanuel Likens Obama to Lincoln
Posted on 12/03/2012 5:04:09 PM PST by Olog-hai
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the former chief of staff to President Barack Obama, likened Obamas values and ability to see a clear road where everybody just sees fog to President Abraham Lincoln as depicted in the 2012 Steven Spielberg movie Lincoln.
Emanuel made his remarks specifically in reference to Obamas decision to provide a financial bailout to General Motors in 2009, and how his experience as a community organizer helped him to make that decision.

Hey, Rahm....that “fog” might be the steam from the bath house Barry and you grew so accustomed to.
Being ugly and having a wart on his face, I can’t see any comparison.
“Emanuel made his remarks specifically in reference to Obamas decision to provide a financial bailout to General Motors in 2009”
It sure takes “vision” to use other peoples’ money to bail out labor union thugs who just happened to support your campaigns.
“ability to see a clear road where everybody just sees fog
Proof that O-Buh-Mah is an idiot, in denial, and out of touch with reality.
I didn’t know Rahm hated 0bama that much; Lincoln went out with a bang.
Heh. Well, I liken Rahm to Josef Goebbels, so I guess we’re even.
They were both born in places that begin with K-E-N. The similarities end there.
Sorry Rahm. There is no comparison. Lincoln was an American who loved this country. Your boy...
Lincoln Chaffee, maybe.
**WHO in the hell gave the damn order to NOT rescue our men in Benghazi?**
Neither Lincoln OR Obama were known for their ability to read and understand the US Constitution, Bill of Rights, much less appreciate the subtlies of the Federalist Papers.
IMHO....somebodies got designs on the ‘Bamster...hope the SS is up to it
Hey, I’m all for Obama to be like Lincoln...when’s Obama going to the play??
I fear Obama may well suffer the same fate as Old Abe.
So, lying about Benghazi by constantly blaming it on a filmmaker instead of the terrorists is a “clear road” (Rahm quote) and not the “fog of war”? (Hillary quote)
Yeppers. In Zero’s book, lying about Benghazi was the clear road to re-election. And Four More Years of Hell on Earth for the rest of us.
Yeh...I remember Lincoln telling his boys....Don’t worry...you won’t have to pay child support...We’ll just get her to kill the baby....and I’ll pay for it.
Only insomuch as regards slavery...
Lincoln ended it - Obama brought it back.
“Are you ready for the bathhouse after this?”
“You bet I am!”
I liken him to Edsel.
Who'd waste a bullet and prison time on shooting the idiot? I'm more worried about the puppet handlers rather than the socket puppet himself.
Didn't Bush do it first?
Well, in the sense that Obama will probably end up provoking several States to secede, I guess he has a point.
I’m waiting for some of the southern freepers to chime in on this thread - being much more informed on Lincoln’s actions during the war than I am. But I can think of a couple of comparisons:
Lincoln was for a very strong central government.
Lincoln’s views on state’s rights.
Shutting down of free speech.
Well, there was evidence that Lincoln was also gay while having a very unattractive wife.
Reminds me of a joke told me by a cell phone employee 11/2008.
What do Lincoln and Obama have in common? Nothing yet.
Maybe Rahm can get HIS Lincoln to attend a play at Ford’s theatre.
Didn’t Bush the Younger start the autobailouts? Even if it was only official in 09, Obama didn’t do it unilaterally. And only an insignificant minority were befogged, if the fog really was obscuring that line of sight. Everyone who mattered was frightened into Doing Something to save all those people who would have been just as unlucky as the millions of others who lost their jobs in politically unfavored lines of work.
Heck, I remember conservative talk radio hosts arguing for it, like they had begged for TARP. Obama was going with the flow of putatively respectable opinion. Why is it so easy to rewrite history? Oh, well, down the memory hole.
>> as depicted in the 2012 Steven Spielberg movie Lincoln.
So I didn’t see the movie. How does it end?
“while having a very unattractive wife”
She had an unattractive husband.
Look, eventually Lincoln was famous and powerful, and nowadays he’d get a newer model. But back then you didn’t pitch wives willy-nilly. I think Mary Todd was older than him, but who’s to say she wasn’t a catch for him back when? Who the heck knew the freakishly gangly, homely faced, backwoods lawyer would be president (especially one whose highest previous office turned out to be in the house of representatives)?
“How does it end”
Tackily, with Lincoln’s ghost appearing in a candle flame near his deathbed which flashes back to him giving the second inaugural address.
“Rahm Emanuel Likens Obama to Lincoln”
Actually, the Ballerina Boy meant to “liken” Bozo not to Abraham Lincoln, but to Lincoln Hayes who was the black guy in the MOD Squad TV show. Remember the opening of the show, the white guy and white girl and Hayes are being chased. They reach a fence. Who climbs the fence? That’s right Lincoln Hayes!! By the way, the only thing Obama has in common with Hayes is that he looks black. The guy has never climbed a fence in his life, except to buy drugs!
President Lincoln freed the slaves.
Comrade obama slaved the free.
So, if Obambi is like Lincoln, when is he going to fight to free the tax slaves?
Lincoln took us from a Republic to a democracy and Obama's taking us from a democracy to tyranny.
Two big differences: Lincoln was a LEADER. Lincoln was not a coward.
Lincoln wrote his own speeches. Obama? Not so much. Could he match the Gettysburg Address?
Lincoln may not have achieved lasting veneration without being martyred. Obama? I think he’ll be reviled.
Lincoln worked to END slavery, Obama wants to enslave us all.
Well, maybe not all of us, but those who work and pay taxes will be. They already have all those who don’t work or pay taxes.
