Lincoln's Birthday - 200 yr Celebration

Many, as I do, look to President Lincoln as a true source of leadership in the office of the U.S. Presidency. The hard administration he lead, the Civil War, the divided nation.

Yet with his leadership, the nation showed it's ability to weather a major turning point, a mere 100 years from it's founding.

While many today, especially in the MSM, have and will continue to force a resemblance of President Obama with that of President Lincoln, that illusion is just that... an illusion.

President Lincoln stand by himself, a model for all those that hold the office of the people.

Take a few minutes on this 200 yr birthday of Abraham Lincoln to review three of his greatest speeches. We need more leaders like him. A man not only of words but of substance.
