MSNBC host Chuck Todd reported that a "very smart White House aide" told him;
"So, I threw the Lincoln analogy at a close aide to the president last week, and he said,'You know, with this Republican, with the way politics of Washington are today, there'd still be slavery. Lincoln wouldn't have been able to navigate the polarization between the media between this--' it was an interesting and depressing observation from this very smart White House aide."

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the former chief of staff to President Barack Obama, likened Obama’s values and “ability to see a clear road where everybody just sees fog”…lol

----------

Just to get things straight…
Obama is Lincoln and republicans all dream of being slave owners…lol

Well, that kind of talk should keep the stupid and ignorant predisposed with hate for each other. In the mean time we raise their taxes, slash the value of their money and assert more government control of their everyday lives. What a stupid lot they are.

FORWARD!!!

And what makes this comment so asinine that this supposed White House aide made is how totally backward his analogy is. Obama is the total opposite of Lincoln. Obama is more in line with Woodrow Wilson. And if any of you see that as a compliment, you really need to study your history a lttle bit more.

you got that right...

Heck, one in four democrats couldn't tell you who the VP is, much less Woodrow Wilson.

They just hate "the rich" and know Obama does too.

this is ignorant. The republican party was founded in part by Abraham Lincoln, with the intention of abolishing slavery.

This is true but if you go FORWARD to the 1960's the racist democrats moved to the GOP after the Civil rights act and the republicans became the new democratic party.Try again...

Actually Lincoln was not for abolishing slavery. As a member of the New Republican Party, Lincoln did not want slavery to spread into the west as new territory was opening and people wanted to take their slaves west. That is what Lincoln was against. Once the war started then he decided it needed to end the question on slavery once and for all. He didn't introduce the EP until Jan 1, 1863.

Oh and to Gulf, Lincoln did not establish the Republican Party. He was a Whig but joined the Republican Party after the Whig Party disbanned.

This is mostly true.
A lot of people, too many, think that the Civil War was over slavery, it was NOT. The Civil War broke out because of states seceding from the Union, because Lincoln said no new slavery in the new states, not abolish it completely. Lincoln wanted to preserve the Union so he declared war on the south. About midway or so through the war Lincoln decided to abolish slavery all together.

The Civil War broke out because of taxes. Lincoln increased taxes to all states to the point that the southern states with low industry at that time couldnt acknowledge to the tax rate that the northern states could oblige with. Southern states seceded from the union and formed the Confederacy.

The Union government went to war not for the cause of eliminating slavery. It went to war because when the South left, its money left with them. Money that for the first 70 years or so of the USA paid for up to 90% of the cost of government.
