Obama and Abe Lincoln- And The Beat(ing) Goes On Part 40




So I said to him, "Barack, I know Abe Lincoln,
And you ain't Abe Lincoln ."
Obama a Democrat has made numerous attempts to quote Lincoln a Republican.

SO WHY DOESN'T OBAMA USE THIS FAMOUS LINCOLN QUOTE:

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

... Abraham Lincoln

Ticker - That's a great picture of all of those Presidents.

if Obama read all those, he'd certainly not be the supposed admirer of LIncoln that he is, huh?

I doubt that he has read anything by Lincoln. Perhaps someone could be present them at a "theater" for him. Then he could truly be like Lincoln.

I've been trying to catch up today, been gone away from the computer. Obama loves to compare himself to former presidents and various other famous people. That's because he's such a failure at being himself, the empty suit.
