Yeah. This article is like AP saying, "He's our man!" I can just hear the history and the grand band playing. The Liberal Media at its monopoly best.

Are they seriously comparing Obama to Lincoln and FDR?

Why not Jesus while we're at it?

He's simply a man who put more money into winning. He IS NOT the messiah!

If the Obama worshippers could ever get past THIER SKIN COLOR OBSESSION, they would see they've hired the janitor to be the CEO.

To suggest that Obama is another Lincoln or FDR is
ridiculous...Obama's resume is zippo.

I think it'll be an apt comparison. The cycles of history say it's time for a new era led by a progressive president.

If you'd studied your history, you'd know that Obama's resume is very similar to Lincoln's. Eerily so.

My God... I never realized that Lincoln's wife wasn't ever proud of being an American until now. I never knew that Lincoln had friends who bombed the Pentagon. And Lincoln held membership for almost 20 years from a church who's pastor screams "God damn America" and then became Lincoln's "mentor"? Lincoln's college education was underwritten and paid for by the Black Panthers?

I must have been sick on those days in history.

I fail to see the similarities.... sorry.

You know, the more I think about it... Obama's resume is similar to someone else in history. You be the judge.

This other man in history:

1. Supported gun control
2. was charismatic
3. Didn't value the unborn
4. Gave great speeches
5. Promised change
6. was supported by overwhelming numbers of his population, at least at the beginning
7. was young
8. did genetic research at the cost of human lives (vs. stem cell research today)

Any guesses?

You watch too much Fox News. They lie to you. Here's an example...

In 1933, Hitler passed 2 pieces of legislation that made abortion illegal. He was not pro-choice.

He went to Harvard... Where exactly did you go to school??????
I don't care who you are that is a hard school to get into. Sure he may be a bit green when it comes to his resume but the man is smart. He is already making intelligent choices. Maybe we should just wait and se what happens.

My mistake. I thought he was the guy who chose to abort 13 million people, 6 million of which were Jews.

I'll have to look that over again.

Something to think about -

On blacks, immigrants and indigents:

"...human weeds,''reckless breeders,''spawning... human beings who never should have been born." Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people

On sterilization & racial purification:

Sanger believed that, for the purpose of racial "purification," couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization. Birth Control in America, The Career of Margaret Sanger, by David Kennedy, p. 117, quoting a 1923 Sanger speech.

FYI - Margaret Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood, the number 1 abortion provider in America. Aren't her views of minorities and other select groups interesting? Kind of similar to whoever that guy was who ran the death camps in World War II?

What does any of this have to do with Obama?

You said that Hitler wasn't pro choice, but I can show you that he was as much about racial purification as the heavily defended democratic (e.g. Barak Obama) position of pro choice.

How sad.

The founder of Planned Parenthood held the same views for racial purification and thereby established the biggest abortion provider in the USA, and that wonderful organization and position is defended by Herr Obama.

You are ridiculous. Obama has never said he supports abortion, only the woman's right to choose. He doesn't like abortion and would like to educate young women and get them the birth control they need. No one likes abortion!

Hitler outlawed abortion. That's as far from pro-choice as it gets.
