and how does that make Lincoln the founder of the republican party?


Founded in Northern States in 1854 by anti-slavery activists, modernizers, ex-Whigs and ex-Free Soilers, the Republican Party quickly became the principal opposition to the dominant Democratic Party and the briefly popular Know Nothing Party. The main cause was opposition to the Kansas Nebraska Act, which repealed the compromise by which slavery was kept out of Kansas. The Republicans saw the expansion of slavery as a great evil. By 1858, the Republicans dominated nearly all Northern states. The Republican Party first came to power in 1860 with the election of Lincoln to the Presidency and Republicans in control of Congress and the northern states

en.wikipedia.org...(United_States)


Perhaps there is a point of semantics here, as we refer to our Founding Fathers.

Obama ad libbed and got it wrong. It would have been more acurate to say he was one of the founders or one of the most important figures in the party's formation.

Again the OP is about PBS covering this up when in fact they, along with others, just posted the speech as written.

kptv still has that version posted while PBS has updated to show the error. This thread was wrong from the start.

Just because PBS wised up and fixed their deliberate editing of the obama transcript,


You seem to be pretending that I didn't debunk your OP?

PBS recieved the speech, as did every news outlet, before it was given. That was the original transcript they published and then they later edited it to reflect his actual remarks including the Lincoln ad-lib.

If you contend that PBS had originally edited the transcript for political reasons, then would you care to explain why Fox News did the same thing? Do they have a "Liberal Bias"?

You OP failed on page one and you seem to be pretending otherwise.


Fox News


We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union. But in the middle of a Civil War, he was also a leader who looked to the future -- a Republican president who mobilized government to build the transcontinental railroad; launch the National Academy of Sciences; and set up the first land grant colleges. And leaders of both parties have followed the example he set.

Geez...can we now call for the defunding of FOX for having an egregious liberal Bias?

Your choices are this...

Admit you were wrong or declare FOX News a liberal biased media outlet that deserves to go out of business...

Or of course you can just repeat "nanny nanny boo boo I can't hear you" and carry on with the lie despite knowing the truth of your error.

Pretty sure which option you will choose.

So, the new obama tactic is to have two copies of a speech. A "sanitized" "prepared" version. And then the one actually given that perhaps millions of people hear or read about.

Let's see, which version can and does carry more weight, the words actually said, or some "prepared copy"?

Based on the left's reactions to any gaffes Bush, Palin, Bachmann, or any Republican makes in speeches, it MUST be the actual words spoken.

Now we are just getting more attempts by progressives to have it both ways.

They should be ashamed of themselves ...
