Quote of the Day

Here's a great quote from Lincoln:

"Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled or hanged."

Now obviously, I'm not calling for actions to be taken against the likes of Kennedy, Pelosi and the rest of the tinfoil hat wearers, but I think it is imperative that they realize how destructive their actions can be. The democrats are in a very odd position. If the war goes well, then that is good for America, the world, and tangentially, the GOP, but is not necessarilly good for the democrats. If however, the war is a disatreous failure, then that is bad for the U.S., the rest of the world, and the GOP, yet advances the democrats politically. So, if the dems wish to advance their political agenda they would hope for utter failure in Iraq, but if they wish to advance U.S. interests, they would hope for resounding success in Iraq.

Do you have any doubts about what their secret hopes and wishes are?

Once again Pelosi shoots the Democratic party in the foot (registration required).
The theme I am now getting among the democratic party is that they are divided themselves...so not only are they fighting Republicans but they are fighting to keep control of its own members. Pathetic.

“Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale & undermine the military are saboteurs & should be arrested, exiled, or hanged.” - President Abraham Lincoln

Lincoln never said this. Ever. This quote is a fabrication of Dr. J. Michael Waller, a long time Republican pundit, who first wrote it in a Moonie publication, Insight Magazine on December 23, 2003 shortly before the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth gave it life in 2004.

I have two original King & Baird pamphlets in my collection, the identical pamphlet Waller sites as his proof, “TRUTH FROM AN HONEST MAN”. Lincoln never wrote anything like this … here, or anywhere else.

How pathetic has the Republican Party become that it insults the reputation of America’s finest Republican president for their political gain?
