Could not possible be more wrong. Lincoln was leading on an important issue, 0 is playing the petulant child throwing a tantrum because he cannot have all the toys he wants.

Man, he’s desperate. He’s swinging wild now. We must have him on the ropes.

That said, I’m sure the Pubs will soon be snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Pander, pander, pander, pander, pander, pander ....

That must be the most prevalent improvisation cue coming from the 0bamao’s teleprompter.

Unfortunately, I fear the majority are hypnotized enough by the media to believe it.

He’s right to bring up the slavery issue but he is on the wrong side. We have become slaves to our government, they take our money and have severely limited our freedom with over-regulation.

So to complete the analogy, Lincoln wanted to end the slavery crisis by bringing in or breeding more slaves as he eliminated slavery in some places so there’d be a balance.

Know your audience:

Many(not all)College kids will believe Obama.

When Obama uses the slavery issue regarding the debt, he is implying that without a big government, you college kids will be ‘slaves’ to BIG BUSINESS.

In Obama’s world Big Business is the slave master and government is the savior/great equalizer. The college kids are taught this propaganda lie by their professors so naturally they will believe it.

“And half the country will be devastated when he’s done.”

Sadly, that’s most likely true. At least Obama was historically accurate in stating that Lincoln had no priority [or interest] to free the slaves, but maintaining the “Union” (at whatever cost).

Obama will likewise attempt to maintain and expand FedGov control of everything, illegally and at great human cost. Whether he will be successful remains to be seen, few are standing up to the tyranny, but I suspect all hope is not lost.

If I understand the analogy correctly:

1. He wants to free people not under his jurisdiction while keeping people under his jurisdiction enslaved.

2. He wants to suspend habeas corpus to keep his image untainted while deporting citizens with differing opinions.

3. He hopes to kill hundreds of thousands of patriots for his own ends.

This is downright scary.

Lincoln imposed the Emancipation Proclamation on half the country because we were actively at war with them. Not that it was not the right thing to do, of course.

Does Obama really consider himself to be at war with the two-thirds of the American People who support Cut, Cap and Balance?

You forgot that for these efforts, he wishes to also have a 10,000 sq ft greco-roman temple erected in his honor right in the middle of the National Mall.

Maybe Grace Slick is his new economic adviser.
Obama’s new theme song:

“One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell ‘em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
Call Alice
When she was just small

When men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving slow
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's “off with her head!”
Remember what the dormouse said;
“Keep YOUR HEAD

You’ve got the analogy down, in fact there’s even more parallels, they just have yet to be seen.

Regarding Lincoln’s non-issue with slavery (at least pertaining to the war), from Freeper “loveliberty2” a quote on this thread (#109):
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2743615/posts?q=1&;page=101

“For those who are discussing the role of the Civil War and slavery, excerpts from Abraham Lincoln’s “Address at Sanitary Fair, Baltimore, Maryland April 18, 1864” may contain some interesting observations by Lincoln himself on the subject:

“The change within Baltimore is part only of a far wider change. When the war began, three years ago, neither party, nor any man, expected it would last till now. Each looked for the end, in some way, long ere to-day. Neither did any anticipate that domestic slavery would be much affected by the war. But here we are; the war has not ended, and slavery has been much affected-—how much needs not now to be recounted. So true is it that man proposes, and God disposes.”

What a lying POS...first, his OWN Debt Commission last December suggested 4.2 trillion in cuts...he rejected his own commission.

Next, he offers up a budget that is so bad that the DEMOCRAT SENATE rejects it 97-0.

He then offers up a “budget” that is so fuzzy the head of the CBO says, “We don’t score speeches”.

A year ago he said we should NOT RAISE taxes in a recession, NOW he says we MUST...

Lincoln was a leader and a brave soul...this guy isn’t worthy of polishing Lincoln’s top hat.
