President Bush is our Lincoln
most of this is a wild bashing of the NAACP, but eventually Dr. Caner gets around to the compelling case that Bush is our Lincoln...

By Dr. Ergun Mehmet Caner

Notice the parallels:

Both men chose to defend those who had no rights and very few freedoms.

Both men took a highly unpopular stand, regardless of public opinion, in the midst of their first term not because it was politically expedient, but because it was right.

Both men extended the rights of education, equality and the freedom of speech and vote to a people who had lived under oppression for years.

In the South, slave owners would whip, maim and kill those slaves who disobeyed them. Saddam Hussein gassed his own people, the Shi'a in the southern part of Iraq.

Neither man initiated any war. President Lincoln did not take action until the provisional Confederate Army captured Fort Sumter, three months after his inauguration. President Bush responded to the war brought to our shores only after the bombing of 9-11, eight months after his inauguration. Both men fully understood that taking such action endangered the chance they had for a second term. Both still acted, because it was the right thing to do.

1. Unfortunately, it takes 18 years and nine months
for those zygotes to be able to vote, and after all that time under the conditons set up by the GOP, those new voters will be going Democratic!
