Wow. I had to look this one up because it was so incredulous. Only one source distorted the truth and several liberal sites just repeated it word for word.
But this is the truth of which you were so easliy misled.
Sean Hannity claimed that President-elect Obama was attempting to hijack Abraham Lincoln's legacy from the modern Republican Party.
Remember Obama staking claim to not only Lincoln's but Reagan's legacies?
HANNITY: Barack Obama is doing everything he can to convince Americans that he is the rightful inheritor of Abraham Lincoln's legacy.
Perhaps the liberal website just linked Hillary to Obama for killing Lincoln's "legacy" claiming any ties to the Republican Lincoln when a sourthern democrat killed Lincoln.
But if you can post three or four credible sources reporting it differently than the original New Yorker website, I'd appreciate it.
Would that be like you hijacking Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society /Civil Rights legacy for republicans and Everett Dirksen? He was from Illinois just like Barack Obama.

I posted about three years ago that one of Florida's 9-12 groups was founded by a convicted felon for the express purpose of scamming money from racist, right wing stooges.
Another non issue.

The outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta revealed on Thursday that President Obama was absent the night of the lethal attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya - despite being told that the attack was occurring we also know from the testimony that neither Panetta/Dempsey nor Hillary had any communication with the President during the attack!! AWOL
President Bush was "engage"; he single handedly pulled down Sadaam Husseins statue,and then cut the throats of his sons.
After that, he and Laura went to the ranch and cooked them up some a them enchilladas and stuff.

Who claimed Obama made 'abrupt decisions'? No One. That's never been a part of President Obama's cautious optimism, reasoned, considered , pragmatic decision-making M.O. Look it up.

Not even sure what you're talking about. I only responded to your insult about my knowledge of history when it seems you have a difficult time keeping up with current events...or at least are quick to accuse others of lying and must be provided proof otherwise.

He just left out the part where Hillary single handedly killed Osama Bin Laden by strangulation; but that's classified information.
And, President Obama, pushed him into the sea.

Really on top of breaking news.

No wonder the mainstream media has lost all credibility.

Why not interview Susan Rice again and swallow all her lies, like Monica on her knees for Bill?

And president nobama was informed of the action in Benghazi he went to bed. He wanted to be fresh the next morning when he took off on a campaigning trip.
While president nobama slept, American's died.

I can't believe how brain washed you idiots are

"WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service improperly singled out conservative groups for extra scrutiny of their applications for nonprofit status, a top agency official said Friday, setting off calls for investigations into an organization already under fire for its handling of secret political spending by nonprofits."

Since You have comprehension problems I'll point out the key word: improperly.

Realized it must be when I found the source of Lincoln's claim and another source proving it was a gross distortion.

But liberals actually believe these gross distortions without even questioning it or looking further into it. That's what's scary.
