Big Hairy News

NEW YORK (BHN) – In an interview on NBC’s Nightly News, “Lincoln” director Steven Spielberg drew comparisons between the iconic 16th president, and Barack Obama.

“Lincoln advocated things that we hold dear today, like class warfare, gay marriage, and giving everybody a free cell phone,” said Spielberg. “He advocated that government can be a positive force for the good of all people, especially if you’re lazy and not white.”

    Before politics, Lincoln worked as a land surveyor and had to hock his surveying instruments to pay his debts after getting stiffed on payment for jobs he had finished.

    Barry Hussein worked real hard at never working; he put the whole country in debt, hocked the nation, and gave the money to people who refuse to work, just like himself.

    There are now lots of folks that want to secede from the Union–Obama has successfully created that parallel.

    Like Lincoln, Obama has taken more presidential power than any before him. Lincoln did so in a time of extreme crisis, and although he had many detractors was successful in his goals. Will the same be said of Obama in historical analysis?

    I imagine a lot of things will be said about Obama, not many positive.

    They better stop with the Lincoln comparisons before some loonie on the left decides he’ll make Obama’s Presidency end the same way Lincoln’s did. And yes, I say a left wing nutjob since they are the respository for all mental defectives and extremists that assinate or try to assinate U.S. Presidents. Just check your U.S. history folks,

    Racist = Booth = Democrat – check
    Anarchist = Czolgosz (McKinley)- check
    Communist = Oswald – check
    Loon = Guiteau (Garfield), Mason family members and Hinkley among others

    Yep, people who identify with the left wing politics in this nation are a threat to the President and us all. Perhaps we should send them all to Gitmo to better secure the homeland.

    When Lincoln was assinated he was watching “My American Cousin.”

    Obama’s closest link to being a U.S. citizen is an American Cousin.

    Mrs. Lincoln embarrassed the president by spending what seemed like a lot of money at the time on things she probably didn’t really need.

    Mrs. Sasquatch is an embarrassment to the nation with her uncontrolled spending addiction, numerous vacations and world travel, ridiculous attire, nasty eating habits, lack of manners, hate of white people, disrespect for America, and her gigantic ass.
