Dear President Obama: You’re No Abe Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln 3 SC1 Dear President Obama: You’re No Abe Lincoln

We get a lot of feedback from our readers on the discussions we are having about major issues facing President Obama and a divided U.S. Congress.

Sometimes it’s hard to distill complex issues into simple “straight talk” and what it means to everyday women as well as average Americans who put food on the table, fill their cars with gasoline, and live real lives.

Take the rhetoric on the minimum wage last week, when President Obama unveiled his latest proposal.  He said:

“The American people don’t expect government to solve every problem. They don’t expect those of us in this chamber to agree on every issue. But they do expect us to put the nation’s interests before party.They do expect us to forge reasonable compromise where we can. For they know that America moves forward only when we do so together, and that the responsibility of improving this union remains the task of us all.

We know our economy is stronger when we reward an honest day’s work with honest wages. But today, a full-time worker making the minimum wage earns $14,500 a year. Even with the tax relief we put in place, a family with two kids that earns the minimum wage still lives below the poverty line. That’s wrong. That’s why, since the last time this Congress raised the minimum wage, 19 states have chosen to bump theirs even higher.

    That's true.Obama is no Abraham Lincoln. The things that Obama has done to this country would shock the Presidents during Lincoln's era. Obama has no interest in helping do anything for our country. We need to start speaking back. Some people are afraid to speak up. Right now, I cannot count the number of people that I know who are fed up with the programs Obama has funded and the programs that he has cut the funding on.
    He has no spine. He is not a leader. He is the only President that I know of who has not shown his birth certificate yet. I thought that showing that you are a citizen of the US had to be done for anyone to enter any election. Obama has come up with so many excuses that it is pitiful when it came to the point that people were putting pressure on him to show his B. certificate. I just want to wipe that smerk off of his face. He sickens me.!

      Linda I'd help you wipe that smerk off his big eared face.The reason he doesn't have to show a certificate or college records is because he is half black.In todays world being black buys you special privileges.

    he's NO president, either, so why do so many of you keep using the title together with the name, which by the way is not real???? WHY is he still breathing????

  3. Seeks_the_truth says:

    Oblameo is definitely no Abe Lincoln. He's not even a good as Carter!
    This is the WORST 'administration' in America's history.

  4. Comparing Obama to Lincoln is like comparing a cheap run down car to a Rolls Royce. Obama is the cheap broken down car and Lincoln is the Rolls Royce.

  5. The minimum wage was for getting students a foot into the job market. They can start going to work, put away for a car, college or other things. This minimum wage is not for people with 4 kids. You raise that wage up to $9.00, no one is going to go and buy drive-in food. They aren't even going to restruarants to eat. Obammy hasn't grown up in the USA and didn't flip hamburgers, etc when he was young. SO COOOL IT. VOTE NO FOR THE $9.00. Look at all of the kids that can't find jobs now because of Obammy's job market is lousy. Kids are getting into trouble. They are getting bored and then they watch all of these terrible moveies and games. They are the ones that are up to no good with drugs, stealing, raising havoc in our economy. More and more companies, espcially the small ones will be closing their doors for good. Obammy has ruined our economy as it is, we don't need to give him more ammunition shutting down more businesses. Grow up people, use common sense in what your voting for.
