David Gregory to Obama: 'Is This Your Lincoln Moment?' Obama: "I never compare myself to Lincoln." Daniel Halper December 30, 2012 11:06 AM
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."
Nope. It is exactly a civil war (fought by one side, so far) and slavery (state slavery)
Butt sucking root smoocher. How he looks at himself in the mirror is a mystery.
Lol! I could make a Ford's theater joke but it might get me a visit from the secret service....
We don’t know you.
Gotta keep the myth and delusion alive. If was part of the myth, they would offer you tainted koolaid.
Wait until Obama starts the American Spring David, and then ask the question.
“But eventually, we do the right thing.”
Oh, really? Like running up the biggest debt in American history and having the longest period of 7%+ unemployment since the Great Depression? That kind of right thing?
Hope they both have RU86
When narcissists collide.
‘Is This Your Lincoln Moment?’
Lincoln played golf?
Oops, on my tagline I meant “2012.”
Has David wiped the brown from his nose yet?
I had to turn this off. When the uniquely smarmy,
Iago-esque Gregory asked: “Why don’t Republicans respect you? What is it about you that they...dislike?” Obama didn’t have to take the bait because it wasn’t necessary.
Oh, Tim Russert! I miss you.
When CWII starts, before we even settle things with the traitorous,corrupt, POS politicians, we need to take care of the MSM. They need to feel it first.
No matter what any past, present or future President has done or does, they can never be or could be as bad and harmful as Lincoln. He destroyed the founder's republic - forever.
Sic Semper Tyrannis.
Good idea,Osama...particularly given that so many in this country compare you to Carter.Abd in an unflattering way,to be sure.
...it was a fortunate fluke but a fluke nonetheless by American traditions...
...we won't lose again with the 3rd.
Interpretation: I consider myself comparable to Lincoln -- and FDR too for that matter -- but after thinking long and hard about whether to say so out loud, I have determined it makes better political sense not to. Instead I rely on sycophants like you, David, to make the comparison. So thank you.
Tim Russert jumped aboard the O train just before his demise.
What? Barry’s going to emancipate the blacks from the Dem plantation????
Considering Obama and Reid are co- conspirators in this kabuki dance over the fiscal cliff.... It’s hardly a “Lincoln Moment “ ....
” I never compare myself to Lincoln.”
Next sentence: “ Why the hell do you think I hire so many flunkies, including you?”
It is his Hitler moment.
In fact, the only time he isn't comparing himself to Lincoln, or encouraging others to compare him to Lincoln, is when he's trying to compare himself to Reagan.
translated: “I make slaves not free them.”
A snippet for David Gregory: “...even to those addressed to gods, as exemplified in the common Tikopian prayer that prefaced many supplications with “I eat ten times your excrement.” From Polynesia in Early Historic Times, by Douglas L. Oliver
There he goes again.
With worshippers like this, no wonder the Kenyan thinks he’s God.
Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
I think John Bolton meant the top 10 floors of the NY Slimes building.
If the media did its job, Obama would be sitting in a bar in Chicago blackmailing some company.
“I never compare myself to Lincoln.”
President-Elect Barack Obama has been doing his best to “channel” Abraham Lincoln ever since he kicked off his campaign for the presidency. He began his campaign in Springfield, Illinois at the steps of the Old State Capitol, where Lincoln served for eight years in the Illinois Legislature. He’s referred to Doris Kearns Goodwin’s “Team Of Rivals” countless times both during and after the campaign. The President-Elect will partially re-trace the route taken by Lincoln to the nation’s capital, departing from Philadelphia on a train. A welcoming ceremony will be held at the Lincoln Memorial on January 18. Just announced this morning is yet another move by Obama to honor the memory of his political hero, Abraham Lincoln.
According to the Presidential Inaugural Committee website, Mr. Obama will be sworn in as the nation’s 44th president while he places his hand on the Bible used by Abraham Lincoln on March 4, 1861 during Lincoln’s first inauguration. This will mark the first time that this particular Bible will be used at a presidential swearing-in since Lincoln himself used it. The Lincoln Bible is in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress, which was under no obligation to let it be used by Obama.
According to the site, Obama is “is deeply honored that the Library of Congress has made the Lincoln Bible available for use during his swearing-in. The President-elect is committed to holding an inauguration that celebrates the unity of America, and the use of this historic Bible will provide a powerful connection to our common past and common heritage.”
Russert was a well disguised hack as evedenced by his son Luke. Where do you think luke got his attitude and "facts" from? Tim's only redeeeming feature was that he did not spew hate and venom like many on the left. He acted as a gentleman, a rarity for the progs thses days.
Clean Socialism= dead people decomposing in sewage.
Beat me to it.
...and scrape those pearls off your shoulder!
Was Obozo heading to the theater tonight??

It is not just the media. Obama’s success goes deeper. He is supported by people who have much more power. They fix elections and have large sums of money. They have people killed and they own most of Congress. Media is just one branch.
David Gregory = Monica Lewinsky without the cigar.....
As Bowbama was leaving the studio, he reached around to scratch his ass and poked Gregory right in the eye!
More like a JFK moment! When Lincoln got taken out, at least everyone knew what the motive was and whom to suspect. Well, OK, JW Booth was a nationally known celebrity who basically admitted he did it on the Ford Theater stage. That helped.
My point being that even though JFK got whacked 50 years ago, reasonable people can still disagree on “who done it” because so many people were PO’d at JFK. So many JFK-haters had the “means, motive and opportunity” (Oswald, LBJ, CIA, Castro, ex-Havana Mob, Miami Mob, New Orleans Mob, Dallas Mob, Chicago Mob...oh, yeah, the Diem family in Vietnam, too!
IMO, the number of folks PO’d at Barry will increase exponentially this year as his failing policies result in more gun-grabbing, job-crushing, economy-crushing, Muslim Bro-promotion headlines.
I personally do NOT want to see every road and public works project named after Barry like they did with JFK. That must not happen.
Creepy ... particularly that last photo. :shudder:
“So, Lincoln owed everything—his nomination and election—to Northern protectionists, especially the ones in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. He was expected to be the enforcer of the Morrill tariff. Understanding all too well that the South Carolina tariff nullifiers had foiled the last attempt to impose a draconian protectionist tariff on the nation by voting in political convention not to collect the 1828 “Tariff of Abominations,” Lincoln literally promised in his first inaugural address a military invasion if the new, tripled tariff rate was not collected.”
Obama is similarly invested in imposing socialist health care and taxing the rich.

We ought to start calling ObamaCare, ObaminationCare as a faint reference to the Tariff of Abomination.
