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.

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.
