Skip to comments.Chris Matthews: Obama Second Inaugural Akin to Gettysburg Address
Posted on 01/21/2013 4:58:43 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Barack Obama is perhaps the only modern president who has had the burden of swatting away comparisons between his own soaring rhetoric and that of our 16th president. You may recall that, in the wake of the Newtown massacre, Pulitzer Prizewinning reporter David Maraniss gushed over the presidents remarks, writing, People will long remember what Barack Obama said in Newtown, and calling the speech [Obama's] Gettysburg address.
Today, thanks to MSNBCs Chris Matthews, it took less than five minutes for the comparison to be drawn between President Obamas second inaugural address and, well, all manner of things Lincoln. It reminds me of another second inaugural, Lincolns, so much of Lincoln in that speech, from the Gettysburg Address to the second inaugural itself, Matthews said...

I wonder if he wears a Foley catheter to these events to keep from wetting his pants.
It sounds like Chrissy’s “tingle” is acting up again. Go take care of that Chrissy.
He was going to say this no matter what. It’s his calling.
Pray for America
Barry and his zombie followers want Barry to be Abraham Lincoln REALLY bad. The trouble is, Lincoln never threw the race card when he was challenged. I can’t say that about the Kenyan pimp.
More like a “Get-me’s-berg” Address ...
Is obama Abraham Lincoln or Jesus Christ???? I’m SOOOOO confused.
Right now I’m imagining Chrissy in a Hitler Youth smock, with tight braids and a bouquet of flowers he’s holding for Obama ....
Wish I had Photoshop.
If he lost one of his brain cells the other one would die from loneliness. Just say’n
He’s above such trifling figures. He is Obama.
The alpha and the Omega. That is all you need know...
You mean he is the black Lady Gaga???
Obama has done absolutely nothing to help stop violence in the inner city, provide a safe environment for the children of the inner city, and address the social issues that contribute to the perpetuation of generation upon generation of minorities settling for lives that are dramatically less than they deserve and can achieve on their own, without Obama, you, or me.
Obama has followed his inner anger, and acted on the basis of his strongly held and misinformed ideology, but has ignored the great issues of his day. Chris, it's not too late for you to get a clue. Right now you have none, and in as much as you have a soap box you are hurting minorities, significantly. You are in some ways worse than a Klansman, because your robes are not as overtly recognizable as racist. Your words and your actions, however, are almost as hurtful as the Klan ever was. Think Chris. Think.
Well I hope his life imitates Lincolns—to the bitter end
I thought it sounded like Daffy Duck—at his worst.
