Try to guess the president I am talking about from the following comments taken from newspaper articles about him:

This president has a total disregard of civil liberties and is unable to manage Congress or even his own cabinet. He has time and again chosen expediency over principle and has even suspended habeas corpus at his own free will. He has chosen the laws he wants to obey. He will forever be known as the father of big government and is not qualified to manage the affairs of this country. I believe he has honesty and good intentions, but this is indicative of his own judgment. This president has made the fanatical attempt to place the Negro on a social and political equality with the white race and his actions are like “the frenzy of a distempered brain, which shrinks from a shadow on the wall.”

These statements were made about President Abraham Lincoln.

Even after seven score and nine years we are still reading and hearing the same old, off-the-wall, slanderous and unsubstantiated comments about our current president.

Some things never change.
