    Anyone else sickened by the fact that Obama keeps trying to paint himself as one of our greatest Presidents?

    Obama can spend his entire life and will yet be a tenth of the man Abraham Lincoln was for our country.


    How dare he use Abraham Lincoln’s Bible… The audacity of this pompous man makes me sick. Abraham Lincoln... the father of the Republican Party must be turning over in his grave!

    I don't want Barack Obama to be Lincoln, or Reagan, or any other president. I want him to be Barack Obama and to do so well that the right-wingers spend the next 8 years crying in their beer if they can't put the good of the country ahead of their dumb ideology.

    I kind of agree, not about the bible cuz I don't see what difference that makes, but Lincoln is known as the great emancipator yet in his first inauguration address he specifically said he didn't want to see slavery end. I believe God had a hand in freeing the slaves and Lincoln just so happen to be at the wheel.

    All of these leaders are men and the glory should go to God. I agree with Ken, Obama should focus on being Obama and trust the Lord to guide him on his watch.

    Similarities... They both give a good speech...

    I doubt that anyone who put the good of the country first voted for this pro baby murderer as president.

    Exactly. Neither did they vote for one who extols the abomination of sodomy.

    What can you expect from a man who is totally about appearance, with no substance? Everything he and the news media have done is to make him LOOK good. The use of Lincoln's Bible to take the oath (IMHO) is just another gimmick to make him look like he is doing something "right".

    While I have never liked the positions President Obama has taken during his campaign, he IS our new President. I will be praying for him daily, trusting God to do what is necessary. After all, as Christians, GOD is our Lord, not Mr. Obama. No matter how much he and/or others might THINK he is the Messiah!

    It really goes to show what little substance Obama has as a leader that they have to generate this Lincoln persona.

    Abraham Lincoln was no Lincoln. He despised the Declaration of Independence and killed more Americans than King George lll, Hitler, and Tojo, combined.

    Really? This is what you have to say about Abe Lincoln? What evidence do you have? this is what I have

    the number agreed on for deaths during the Civil war is 620,000

    the range of deaths during WWII is between 50 million to 70 million Specifically the US lost 418,500.

    The revolutionary war we lost 50,000 americans.

    WW I we lost 320,518 the entire war.

    so lets do the math

    All wars listed (not all of them) we find that combined we lost 789,018 americans (So not as much huh?). Now add that to the millions lost in WWI and II. There is no comparison. The american Civil war was the bloodiest military campaign in american history but I don't Blame Abe for that. I blame James Buchanan and Jefferson Davis and the Southern Confederate States that seceeded from the Union.

    And it was a bloody hand that turned it. Abraham Lincoln did more harm to this nation than many realize. States rights have never been the same sense and the almighty Federal Govt continues to grow bigger. It is now in the bloody hand of a baby killer. If our current President has a change of heart and abolishes abortion I will climb a telephone pole in DC and shout to the heavens that he was the greatest ever. However, do not expect me to hold my breath until that happens.

    God judged this nation for the sin of slavery and He will do it again for this horrible sin of abortion.

    I don't understand, how or when did God judge the nation because of the sin of slavery?

    The American Civil War killed more Americans than all of America's wars in sum. The Military statistics aside, you must factor in the deaths of civilians as well. At best you will get an estimate that will come closer to one million American deaths from this one war. :tear:

    I find it interesting that Obama invokes Lincoln and FDR more than any other past presidents.

    Lincoln and FDR were responsible for more violations of the constitutional rights of Americans than any other presidents.

    Hmmm....
