Rahm Emanuel: Failed President Obama Is Just Like Republican Abe Lincoln


This is so insulting.
Rahm Emanuel compared failed President Barack Obama, the worst economic president since the Great Depression, to the Great Emancipator, Republican Abraham Lincoln.
CNS News reported:

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” to President Abraham Lincoln as depicted in the 2012 Steven Spielberg movie “Lincoln.”

Speaking at Northwestern University on Friday, Emanuel said, “And I think the president’s experience as somebody who was a community organizer on the South Side, dealing with the steel workers who had lost their jobs and lost any possibility of having a job in their industry mid-life, how they were going to retrain, how they were going to get themselves back on their feet and how they were going to value themselves, was a guiding principle for him.”

Democrats hated Abe Lincoln when he was president.
Now they want to liken themselves to the great Republican leader.

UPDATE: Allen West? maybe… Barack Obama? never.

    Why is this so insulting both Lincoln and 0bama have used the black man for their own gain. Lincoln used them as cannon fodder and 0bama used them to liken himself to them so he could use the racecard to his advantage.

    Well, Obama may provoke a Civil War; but if he does it will not be on account of his trying to curtail slavery, but more likely on account of his curtailing freedom.

    Abraham Lincoln did not abolish slavery. He had no Constitutional jurisdiction with which to prevent the lawful secession of eleven U.S. States. He was a puppet of “big rail,” the prevailing corporate interests of his day.

    Abraham Lincoln was perhaps the worst President in the history of the United States of America. Is that hard to believe? Check out some of the following quotes:

    “If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that.”

    “I am not now, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social or political equality of the white and black races. I am not now nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor of intermarriages with white people. There is a physical difference between the white and the black races which will forever forbid the two races living together on social or political equality. There must be a position of superior and inferior, and I am in favor of assigning the superior position to the white man.”

    “whatever negroes can be got to do as soldiers, leaves just so much less for white soldiers to do…”

    Ripped commented:

    Gee, and here I thought the Civil Wars was fought mainly with white soldiers on both sides! But now, Ripped has informed me that the Northern Army was black! That entirely changes the meaning of the Civl War.

  • valerie

    Abe Lincoln was a rotten President! Ripped is right! That’s why so many of the things he wrote are carved in stone on buildings all over our nation’s capital.

    Just wait. Next Ripped will tell us that the KKK was Republican!!!!!!

    /s Historical revisionism is a refuge for uncreative pseudointellectuals searching for theses, as well as scoundrels.

    It’s Civil war you moron, learn to spell, no wonder you’re so confused.

    I see you have nothing intelligent to add, thus the “the KKK was Republican” when you have nothing intelligent to say just make things up as you go along. Isn’t that right Valerie?

  • shadow

    Democrats hated Abe Lincoln when he was president.

    Southern Democrats hated Lincoln. Those Democrats, if they were alive today, would be conservative Republicans.

  • DavidD

    Right. Because unemployed steel workers are just like slaves. I see now; thanks, Mr. Emanuel.

  • Sasja


    Levin is reading a list of conservatives Boehner is either removing, or not assigning, to committees.

  • SeniorD

    Barack Obama is to Abraham Lincoln as Limburger is to cheese.

  • Elizabeth

    Yes, we all know that Abe was a big proponent of no-restriction abortions, persecution of religious institutions, changing the definition of marriage to include homosexuals. In what other ways are they also the same?

    Carl Sandburg wrote that Lincoln had “more than a touch of lavender”in him.(That was 19th century code for gay).

  • lliberty

    Bwahahahahahahahahahhahahahahaha….If Abe knew there was an Obama at the other end, history would have turned out differently….Put down the crack pipe Rahm…lol…too funny…what a putz

  • Dave

    Yeah, why are you all so hell-bent on aligning the modern Democratic party with the party of 150 years ago? They are the same the way modern Romans are the same as those who supported the Optimates 2000 years ago.

  • Sir Ripped: read your history, sir and educate yourself further.

    Lincoln was not a perfect man, but he didn’t have to be – and history affirms that without doubt.

    Obama is not a perfect man either, but he is NO LINCOLN. And history will affirm his imperfection in a much different way, I assure you.

    Coincidentally I just completed an essay today comparing Obama to Lincoln – all the ways they are completely the opposite. Had Lincoln espoused the philosophy of Obama’s moral compromise (proof: support of unlimited abortion and infanticide) slavery would have flourished.

    I was unaware of Rahm Emmanuel’s comment today when I published my writing to the internet.

    a smalltruth.com “Imperfect Men” I invite you to read it.

  • dwdude

    if lincoln knew of an obama future he would have taken henry clay’s advice and repatriated the slaves back to africa…look it up.

  • Highlander

    Valerie just because you post more made up nonsense under the name Ghost doesn’t make it so.

    “YOUR boy, Jason Whitlock said EXACTLY! that today, “The NRA is the new KKK” please point out where I have defended this moron? MORON!

    Do any of you republitards know how to read? YOU ASSume I’m defending 0bama or the left when nothing could be further from the truth. Try reading comment #2 again slowly!

    It’s people like YOU Ghost, Valerie and MLane that make the case that Republican are as uninformed as Democrats. In the future I’-l-l_ t-y-p-e_ s-l-o-w-l-y_ f-o-r_ y-o-u_ i-d-i-o-t-s.
