President Obama will deliver his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress on Feb. 12, House Speaker John A. Boehner said Friday. Mr. Boehner extended the official invitation in a letter asking Mr. Obama to lay out plans for the “immense challenges” facing the country. “This will require a willingness to seek common ground as well as presidential leadership. For that reason, the Congress and the nation would welcome an opportunity to hear your plan and specific solutions for addressing America’s great challenges,” Mr. Boehner said. The speech would come just after

February is black history month.

So O has an all white cabinet for his administration.

But but but he will have a black woman give the benediction at his inaugural. That ought to count for something.

While I can truly appreciate the losing position Lincoln was in, I am unwilling to lionize the man as he has been throughout history and in public education.

The man was deeply flawed (as we all were) but also responsible for a very unconstitutional war and the subsequent perversion of the truth that followed it.

His actions against the South had zero to do with civil liberties or slavery and more to do with tax revenue and Federal control over the states...they were tyrannical, to put it mildly.

Question to those brainwashed who believe the civil war was about slavery (Lincolns own writings oppose this position): Why was the US the only country to get rid of slavery through civil war? Most ther countries managed to avoid it....

It is absolutely false revisionist history to claim that the Civil War was not about slavery. Lincoln´s own writings and speeches as a whole - not one or two sentences taken out of context - make this clear. As do most reputable Lincoln scholars - Harold Holzer, Jack Davis, Frank Williams, John Marszalek, Craig Symonds, etc. etc.

#8 read the emancipation of proclamation, you will find it only freed the southern slaves not the northern ones....oh you didn´t know that the north had slaves too!
The civil war was about states rights and the right to succession. The war wasn´t about slavery until the end to change public opinion.
But this tread is about the zero trying to be Lincolnest! playing to the dumbed down americans again, i´ll be washing my socks on that day.

Since the "martyred" Lincoln was deified by the New York Times etc...

Rarely does anyone point out that more than 700,000 died in the secession war...
that´s the latest scholarly revised figure...

And given that our population is now TEN times greater...
(31 million then... 310 million plus now)
That is the modern equivalent of...

No one talks about it.
A nation torn and devastated for more than a century of hatred and bitterness.
And the proportional equivalent of...

The secession war was unnecessary.
Lincoln should have pulled out in 1860 and endorsed Buchanan for a second term.
(The southern states announced they would secede if the Republican was elected.)
Buchanan was conciliatory, peace prevailed and no shots were fired. No one died.

But our Leftoid Liberoid academics tell us...
Buchanan was the worst president in U.S. history.
Lincoln was the greatest.
Who´s lying... ?

So Bammy should speak on Abe´s birthday.

President Obama on Tuesday warned Democratic donors that the party could not repeat the mistakes of the 2010 midterms, and must focus on turning out voters in November. "Democrats are really good at presidential elections these days, if I do say so myself,” said Obama at a fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in McLean, Va. “But there´s something about midterms." "We get a little sleepy,” he continued. “We don´t turn out the vote. That has to change." Obama spoke at the home of former Democratic Virginia Sen.

Moody’s Downgrades Chicago’s Credit Rating,

CHICAGO — Moody’s Investors Service has downgraded Chicago’s credit rating, citing the city’s unfunded pension liabilities. The agency announced Tuesday it’s lowering the rating on $8.3 billion in debt from A3 to Baa1, putting it only three notches above junk-bond status. Moody’s gave Chicago a negative outlook indicating another downgrade could occur if there’s no pension fix. Moody’s says the rating “reflects the city’s massive and growing unfunded pension liabilities.” Moody’s says those liabilities “threaten the city’s fiscal solvency” unless major revenue and other budgetary adjustments are adopted soon and are sustained for years to come. The lower rating means

The Rutgers University faculty council has passed a resolution calling for the school to rescind Condoleezza Rice’s invitation to speak at commencement. The former secretary of state drew the ire of the school’s professors for her “prominent role in [the Bush] administration’s efforts to mislead the American people about the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and the existence of links between al Qaeda and the Iraqi regime.” Her efforts in the administration, according to the resolution,”led to the second Iraq war, which caused the death of over 100,000 men, women and children, and the displacement of millions of others.”

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said that he wants to get amnesty legislation done this year even as he insisted that the immigration reform he and President Barack Obama discussed in their White House meeting was not "amnesty." Boehner recently said that he and Obama agreed the most on immigration during their recent one-on-one meeting and both want legislation this year, which amnesty advocates believe may be the last chance to pass significant immigration reform. Obama said he would not sign a bill that does not have a pathway to citizenship in it or that creates two classes of people

WASHINGTON, D.C.--President Obama recently nominated Debo Adegbile to be head of the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice. Texas Senator Ted Cruz today spoke out against the nomination and criticized Adegbile, who previously held a leadership position at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund (LDF). During his time with the black activist group, Adegbile volunteered to defend Mumia Abu-Jamal, the criminal who murdered Philadelphia cop Daniel Faulkner in 1981. Thanks to Adegbile and his colleagues, Abu-Jamal ultimately avoided the death penalty. Despite heavy scrutiny, LDF attorneys said it was a great "honor" to represent the convicted cop killer.

President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry still believe Russian President Vladimir Putin is the dog who caught the car. During simultaneous press conferences late Tuesday morning, both men sought to undermine the current image of Putin as a devious strategist who has outsmarted world powers to take control of the Crimean peninsula and threaten Ukraine. The Obama administration’s position is instead to treat Putin as a reckless hothead, one unnerved into action by mass democratic protests on his border rather than fired by global ambitions, and who’s impulsively pushed his country into a conflict that will quickly

Captioning what may turn out to be the photo of the year is already underway. It’s from President Obama’s comments regarding Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. The White House advance team thought it was a good idea to put the President of the United States on a kindergarten alphabet carpet, for some reason. It turns out that Obama’s comments on the invasion were just a prelude to a couple of political fundraisers. He has one tonight, and another tomorrow. We seem to have a part-time president and a full-time fundraiser. Obama also released his 2015 budget today. First reactions: It’s no

But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
