  •  Modern Republicans are more like copperheads... (9+ / 0-)

    They even insulted Lincoln like they do Obama.  Listen to what their presidential nominee (and former commander of the Union forces) said about Lincoln:

    McClellan further damaged his reputation by his insulting insubordination to his commander-in-chief. He privately referred to Lincoln, whom he had known before the war as a lawyer for the Illinois Central, as "nothing more than a well-meaning baboon", a "gorilla", and "ever unworthy of ... his high position."[38] On November 13, he snubbed the president, visiting at McClellan's house, by making him wait for 30 minutes, only to be told that the general had gone to bed and could not see him.[39]
    Sound familiar?  How about this?

    No wonder Obama so identifies with Lincoln.
