Among my many “friends” on Facebook is Sharon Day, Florida’s state Republican Committeewoman. Tonight her status made my think: Sharon Day is wondering what alternative planet she is on when Obama who has never done anything compares himself to Abraham Lincoln.
Okay, let’s briefly consider the political experience these two sons of Illinois:
Both are lawyers.
Both served eight years in the Illinois Legislature. Lincoln for four two-year terms in the state house, Obama for two four-year terms in the state senate.
Both served in the national legislature. Lincoln for one term in the U.S. House, Obama for 2/3rds of a term in the U.S. Senate.
So, from a political experience perspective, Obama has two more years than even President Lincoln.
Just something to consider.
