Many have said that Barack Obama is an inexperienced Junior U.S. Senator, vying for the White House.

If you agree then you should watch the following video:

I can't believe "they" compare Obama to Lincoln

Anyway, I think Obama is "experienced" in a lot of things I DON'T want to know about...

Yeah.

I can see how the challenges and world facing Abraham Lincoln are EXACTLY like those facing the next president in 4 years.

I'm glad Lincoln, despite his inexperience, was able to deal with a nuclear Iran and North Korea, oversee a rapidly changing global economy, a collapsing housing market, and pursue a strong dollar policy... all while fighting two overseas wars and a parallel "war on terror."



Yeah. Exactly the same.

They compare him to Jesus.

They've tried to paint him as JFK, RFK, and MLK rolled into one.


Abraham Lincoln is just the latest of a series of men exponentially greater than Obama will ever deign to be that his fans have compared him to.

Yeah. Exactly the same.

They are trying anything to make it APPEAR he has experience and can handle anything.
He went back to using the teleprompter today because of all his recent mistakes, he voted present 130 times because he did not know which way to vote, was dead wrong on the surge, said that the Russia invasion of Georgia should be handled by the UN and didnt know Russia has veto power.

Now this is what I can a large lack of experience and knowledge.

They are back to what they do best, scam people into thinking something that is not real.

But would you agree that Lincoln was inexperienced?
