I disagree with #3. Voting present is not serving in the Legislature.

you know.. if that propeller were to spin once every time he spent million $ or told a falsehood; (much like the 'toons), he / they could actually fly to Apha Centaur in a couple of minutes.. perhaps an hour.
of course; no atmosphere.. but if you could attach that propeller to a generator...think of energy produced...think of the magnitudes of power created, truly mind boggling.

Obama is a master debater.

Mary Lincoln lost her mind.

yeah..just one trip..out of how many..15/18 every year..not including the daily golf trips.
did Abe ever take a vacation? Any kind of respite?..not in the 1860s...fishing?

Both Lincoln and Obomba bogarted the MJ and pressed their noses to the ceiling of the Choom Gang van to get the last of the smoke. Or maybe it was only Obomba.

Striking Similarities Between Barack Obama and Abraham Lincoln>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

There is only one area of similarity. Lincoln was an opium addict ( laudenum) and Obama is a verified cocaine addict.

There are no other similarities. Obama is unAmerican, a usurper unqualified for office, an anti-American. An Indonesian is in charge of our executive branch of government. Obama emulates Sukarno, and seeks a life long presidency.

I hope that there will evolve one other area of historic similarity. That remains to be seen.

Bullsh*t

1.Placing your hand on the same Bible doesn’t have a thing to do with it. Obama picked that Bible so he could say he used it like Lincoln. Manufactured likeness.

2. Obama did not come from Illinois, He came from Kenya, or Indonesia , or Hawaii, you pick it.
3.Obama voted “present” in Illinois
4.This one I can agree with.
5.See number one a manufactured similarity.
6.Obama is not a lawyer, He gave up his license, there are some questions of why Lincoln never gave up his.
7.Obama is Muslim
8. Obama is in the Muslim Brotherhood.
9.Obama believe in Government carrying everyones weight.

True......using the calculator at:
