Mr. Barber, you are misguided in your interpretation of Lincoln. As a conservative, un-reconstructed Southern American, I happen to think Obama is very much like Lincoln. They are both imperialistic tyrants. Obama seeks power and conquest just like Lincoln and he doesn't concern himself with the Constitution...also, just like Lincoln. A genuine student of history realizes this. Too many Americans have bought into the lie about Lincoln and how "he freed the slaves". I would encourage anyone who believes this to look beyond the superficial and learn about Lincoln and the man he really was. You will be shocked and then angry that these fabrications, and many others, were taught to you in government school.
