Bush, Lincoln and Fox News

Is there any doubt that The Fox News Channel is a shill for the Republican party? If there still is any doubt, check this out. Not only are they defending the idiot currently in the Oval Office, the "reporters" at Fox need a history lesson.

I tell you what — he thinks about Lincoln and the tough times that he had during the Civil War. 600,000 dead. The country essentially hated him when he was leaving office. -quote courtesy of

Did Lincoln "leave office"? Wasn't there an incident at Ford's Theater that made it a bit difficult for Abe to continue his presidency? He had been re-elected shortly before the assassination.

i'd say though, that not only does it represent the typical american's understanding of history, it also represents the typical apathy americans have for history itself and the lessons learned from it. the president trashed the economy and the reputation of the US, permanently and no one is going to do anything about it.

yup, sad but true MJ. ignorance seems to be the prevailing trait these days. the damage bush has caused is going to take decades perhaps generations to fix.
