Obama – Lincoln ‘Decreed’ Thanksgiving

November 29, 2008

First off, what in God’s name is the “Office of the President Elect” and why is whatever it is compelled to issue weekly pronouncements to the huddled masses yearning to be free? According to the United States Constitution, we still have an elected, duly sworn President until noon, on January 20th, 2009. Barack Obama has neither been legally elected president by the “electors,” nor has he sworn to the oath mandated in Article II, Section 1 of the United States Constitution. So why is he acting as though he is already President? It is most unseemly to say the least. Inauguration Day is not November 4th! It is January 20th as set by the Twentieth Amendment to the Constitution, if that still be the law of the land.

Secondly, Mr. President Elect Who Cannot Wait His Time, President Abraham Lincoln did much mischief to this country, but he NEVER made a “First Thanksgiving Decree.” What kind of Day of Thanksgiving would it be if it had been decreed? Where does this word “decree” come from in a supposed government of the people? What President Lincoln did say when he made his Thanksgiving “Proclamation” was to mention blessings “gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American people.”

Thirdly, Mr. President Elect Obama, it was George Washington who “proclaimed” the first Thanksgiving, during his first year as President. He set aside Thursday, November 26 as “A Day of Publick Thanksgiving and Prayer.” Signed by Washington on October 3, 1789, the “Proclamation” was entitled “General Thanksgiving,” and appointed the day “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanks-giving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God.”

Now, contrast those words of both Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln as they “proclaimed” Thanksgiving Day, to those “decreed” by Barack Obama, before he has even been inaugurated President. Obama has decreed that Americans are to give thanks on this Thanksgiving Week-end for Him: So this weekend — with one heart, and one voice, the American people can give thanks that a new and brighter day is yet to come.”

The CHANGE we have been awaiting is a CHANGE to a brand new country – Obamerika, The Obama Nation, ruled by a Benevolent Narcissist, which is the “brighter day to come,” under Obama rule.


A Second Lincoln?

If Bill Clinton was the “First Black President,” what will Barack Obama be when he is elected?

South Dakota native and former Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern gave us the answer when he joined Barack Obama while campaigning in Sioux Falls. Senator McGovern declared Obama Is a Second ‘Lincoln’.”

During good Senator McGovern’s 1972 Democratic presidential campaign a young Hillary Clinton worked her heart out as a political organizer in South Texas for him. He described Bill and Hillary Clinton as “my treasured friends all these years,” and the former Senator became an ardent supporter of her presidential bid. However, when the going got tough for Hillary, and she lost the state of North Carolina, Senator McGovern flip-flopped for his “treasured friend.” He is now a big supporter of Obama. As McGovern spoke to a crowd of 7,000, and with his words placed Obama upon the same pedestal that Abraham Lincoln has occupied all of these last many scores of years, Republicans were chortling in their sleeves.

While George McGovern was describing Barack Obama as “a second Abraham Lincoln,” Republicans were seeing Obama as a second George McGovern, an antiwar liberal about to be blown away in a wartime general election by a strong national defense candidate. Years ago it was Richard Nixon, the hawk, who defeated peacenik George McGovern with electoral college totals of 520 to 17, in the second biggest landslide in American history. Like the Democrats’ Al Gore after him, George McGovern did not even win his home state.

Barack Obama – “America’s Second George McGovern.”
