GROSS. NBC Crank Compares Hyper-Partisan Obama to Republican Abe Lincoln


More media hero worship…
Today on Meet the Press NBC crank David Gregory compared hyper-partisan Barack Obama to Republican Abraham Lincoln.
The Weekly Standard reported:

NBC host David Gregory asked President Barack Obama this morning, “Is this your Lincoln moment?”
The question came up after Obama invoked the movie Lincoln when talking about Republicans and Democrats coming together to work out a deal on the “fiscal cliff.

“Well, no,” Obama said in response to Gregory’s question. “Look, a) I never compare myself to Lincoln. And b) obviously the magnitude of the issues is quite different from the Civil War and slavery. The point, though, is democracy has always been messy. We’re a big diverse country that is constantly sort of arguing about all kinds of stuff. But eventually, we do the right thing.”

    LOL What they mean is James Buchanan. It’s going to take an Abe Lincoln to come in and clean this mess up. Let’s hope we can get through his term without breaking out into a civil war.

  • More like Pol Pot if you ask me

    Lincoln loved our country. Obama doesn’t. You don’t want to “fundamentally” change something you love and everyone who voted this despot back into office appartently feels the same way as Obama. How sad that so many have no desire for our country to prosper and be strong. Obama is talking about going after guns (another broken promise), gutting our military and everything but working hard on the economy and getting people jobs. Doesn’t sound like someone who has the best interests of our country in him mind.

  • Bill

    Legalize drugs, outlaw guns. Replace one black market with another. Some drug dealers will be a little pissed, others will adjust to market conditions.

    PREDICTION: Will not do anything but make guns more likely to be untraceable and more frequently in the wrong hands. Police will smoke pot and stay at donut shop longer.

  • Bigkahuna

    Not true obigears. I have yet to see you do the right thing. Nothing but lies and corruption

    “Obama said in response to Gregory’s question. “Look, a) I never compare myself to Lincoln”

    prez o clearly shot down the comparison but none of you read past the sensationalistic and misleading headlines spewed by GP.


  • Honest Abe would be spinning in his grave at the thought of being compared to this poser of a President we have now.
    A suitable nick name for this prez should be the complete opposite as Honest Abe, Bullsh!*er Barrack would be appropriate for this Pudwhack.
    When I seen Odumbo take his Oath of Office on Lincolns Bible I wanted to Barf.

  • Hey guys, why not call Chrissy Matthews and make it a threesome. Journalism? More like gay porn.

  • Kate

    #8. Apparently u haven’t read previous interviews with Obama where he does just that…compare himself to Lincoln. He is the supreme narcissist and has grand illusions about himself. Just like all despots do. The time will come when reality will catch up with him. Too bad so many neglect to know about the past or history would not have to repeat itself so often.

  • Skandia Recluse

    Obama not like Lincoln, because we’re not in a civil war ……….

    Lincoln tried to hold the union together. Obama is trying to destroy it.

    Yah, guess Obama is right, once you think it through.

    Well, there’s this: Lincoln took slavery out of America, and Comrade Hussein is trying his damndest to enslave us all. I suppose you could call him the anti-Lincoln.

    Lincoln was a partisan POTUS, too. Except in his case, it was Lincoln’s own party with whom he always was at odds. Still, Lincoln freed the slaves. The only thing Kenya Boy has freed has been US $4 trillion.

  • AuntieMadder

    By the way, Lincoln set us on the path to where we are today: with the Feds having taken what had been and is supposed to be power belonging to the states. Yeah, Lincoln and Kenya Boy are both big, centralized govt presidents. Lincoln, however, abolished slavery. Kenya Boy has abolished US exceptionalism. Lincoln wins.

  • AuntieMadder

    Ya’ know, I don’t much care for the graphic (above) of Lincoln fist-bumping and his head all tucked behind Kenya Boy’s, as if he’s about to share a secret or blow into the idiot’s ear. Aside from the fact that Lincoln would have to bend over in order to put himself at face level with the Choom King, I don’t think Lincoln, if he lived today, would be a fist-bumping kind of guy. He seemed much too reserved, more of a “how fine to meet with you again, sir” and “it’s very nice to meet you, ma’am” hand shaker.

    The headline is wholly accurate.

    Obama’s response is to dumb down the concepts of our society and explain it to us as if we’re children. “Stuff happens, don’t worry be happy.”

    He and Hillary will fry in hell for Benghazi. Time to just sit back and watch the news media blow him for another four years.

    I’d like to see images with these stories that kick liberals in the gut, not me. I don’t need to see another close up of the soon to be burning in hell Hillary and her ugly smiling mug atop a story about Benghazi, or anything like it.

  • CT

    Gregory no there is no Obama Lincoln moment, have you forgotten Lincoln was referred to as Honest Abe? Your interview today was thirty minutes of Obama dissembling, he talks a lot and lies a lot.

  • squeaky

    “‘Democracy is always a messy business in a big country like this,’ Obama responded. ‘When you listen to what the federalists said about the anti-federalists — those guys were tough. Lincoln, they used to talk about him almost as bad as they talk about me.'”

  • even steven

    Leftist propagandists posing as new reporters, like David Gregory, should be ridiculed and lambasted every time they show their lying faces in public. At every restaurant, theater, store, whereever, someone should be shouting at them. Give these professional liars no peace.

    Today on Meet the Press NBC crank David Gregory…

    You mean NBC idiot David Gregory, which meshes rather well with all the other idiots in the NBC newsroom…

  • Sasja

    He’s Lincoln and I’m the Tooth Fairy.

    And for Heaven’s sake. We were FOUNDED as a REPUBLIC!!!!! NOT A DEMOCRACY!!!!

  • Big Al

    To in any way equate this current debate over taxes to what Lincoln had to deal with is the height of childish stupidity. Gregory is a silly little boy.

  • Lincoln’s Widow was reportedly insane too

  • Mad Hatter

    David Gregory, Chris Mathews, Ed Schultz, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Toure’ need to come out of the closet and admit they have a man crush on Obama.

  • BurmaShave

    #2 Michael commented:

    I second that.

  • BurmaShave

    Here is another similarity:

    Both Lincoln and Obama got started in their political careers in Illinois, but neither was born there.

  • bad actor

    #10: best comment of the day! I’ll bet David Gregory had a tingle up his leg when he asked that. These so-called journalists make me sick. Like Rush says, they are democrats with by-lines. Nothing more.

  • bad actor

    #29 is a close second place for comment of the day – only the list is not long enough!

  • georgia guy

    Holy Jeebus, you people are unhinged. Obama is politically different from you, therefore he hates America and wants to destroy it? You are freaking nuts. “trying to enslave us all’? My goodness, please call the doctor and get on some meds, ’cause you are unhinged! He’s a Democrat, no more, no less, and you lunatics think he’s out to destroy the country! What a bunch of coconuts!

  • Gail

    Could we please find some reality in this country???????????????

  • zip

    They’re the kind to sing the songs taught in grade school about the fraud – mental illness runs ramped and taught as the new norm. UN-progressives. Propping up the morally twisted/deranged – Nimrod infected slaves.

    ‘My goodness, please call the doctor and get on some meds,”

    Oh, you mean like the ones you’re on? Please, tell us which have worked the best for you.

    This is the president who voted multiple times not to give survivors of abortion medical attention. That is murder regardless of your stance on abortion. He’s more extreme than Planned Parenthood in that regard.

    This is the president who said we need a national civilian police force that is just as large, well funded and powerful as the military (July 2, 2008, CO Springs CO). Not sure if you understand the implications of such an idea but at the very least recognize that there is nothing American about it.

    This is the president who said he would bankrupt the coal industry and cause your energy costs to necessarily skyrocket. Do you enjoy paying through the nose for beef and gasoline?

    This is the president who has outspent, the “unpatriotic” over-spender Bush, by a factor of ten. The same one who laughed at his shovel ready jobs debacle. The same one who was just re-elected campaigning on the same bullcrap of building the infrastructure and getting Americans back to work (yea ok, let’s all roll up our sleeves and do it again…).

    This is the same president who is over regulating all the industries he doesn’t like, who took away and destroyed affordable cars for poorer Americans under the guise of paying out cash for clunkers. How many dealerships went out of business because of his meddling in the private sector?

    This is the same president who gave out billions of dollars to failed alternative energy companies and who shoved Obamacare down our throats which cemented the government control over entire lives through healthcare.

    This is the president who dealt guns to drug cartels in Mexico which were used to murder kids at a party and a border patrol agent. The same one who told the military to stand down in Benghazi and lied to the American people that a spontaneous response to a video is the cause of four Americans to be murdered.

    This is the president who demonizes George Bush for his handling of the economy who has never passed a budget of his own. His negotiating tactics amount to making bigger and more outrageous demands, then he blames republicans for not being reasonable.

    I could go on and on and on but what’s the point. I mean really, could someone show me the American tradition and principles upheld in the Pledge of Allegiance that this president stands firmly on?

    He wants to fundamentally change this country. If he liked it he wouldn’t feel the need to make fundamental changes. But since he thinks fundamental changes are in order and to be brought about through strong arm political tactics and abuse of presidential authority, I tend to believe he doesn’t like the way things have been for over 200 years.

    The lunatic is in the White House.

  • The Central Scrutinizer

    They are kind of similar in a completely opposite way. As President, Abraham Lincoln Freed Black Slaves from their White Slave Owners. As President, Barack Obama has indentured White Taxpayers into Slavery for his Black and Brown Electors.
