Thoughts: What a great way to gain support

By bashing Abe Lincoln, that should get Sen Barach Obama far in this country....

Sen. Barack Obama sees parallels between Abraham Lincoln's life and his own, but he says the nation's 16th president might not have envisioned a black man occupying the seat he now holds.

Obama, who occupies the U.S. Senate seat from Illinois that Lincoln lost to Stephen Douglas in 1858, wrote about how Lincoln shaped his life in an upcoming special issue of Time magazine.

"In Lincoln's rise from poverty, his ultimate mastery of language and law, his capacity to overcome personal loss and remain determined in the face of repeated defeat - in all this, he reminded me not just of my own struggles. He also reminded me of a larger, fundamental element of American life - the enduring belief that we can constantly remake ourselves to fit our larger dreams," Obama wrote in a package dubbed 'Uncovering the Real Abe Lincoln,' on newsstands Monday.

"I cannot swallow whole the view of Lincoln as the Great Emancipator," Obama said. "As a law professor and civil rights lawyer and as an African-American, I am fully aware of his limited views on race. Anyone who actually reads the Emancipation Proclamation knows it was more a military document than a clarion call for justice."

Yup, lets bash the man who freed the slaves. That just goes to show you how much these wacko liberals hate Republicans. Even if they free blacks from years of slavery, they really aren't that good.

    Out of all of all of the Democrats in the Senate, I like Obama the most, only because he's still a virgin to politics and hasn't muddied his shoes in the game as much. But, I'm actually glad that a liberal or a democrat even recognizes Lincoln as a Republican. Usually they have them trying to claim the greatest presidents as their own... "Lincoln was really more of a democrat than a republican..." sort of excuses.

    Though, Lincoln didn't think that a unified country where Blacks and Whites were equal could exist--he thought that while nobody should be in bondage, a separate nation would end up forming. He's sort of true, there was only a sense of equality in the country for a decade or so, before reverse-racists pushed to enforce inconsistant reverse-racism that still determines our social jurisdiction to this day.
