Re: Hmmm, Abe Lincoln


When you were considering whom to endorse for president, Rich, Abe Lincoln never came up? Did Ronald Reagan? Did any of our previous chief executives? If the editors simply chose to ignore American history altogether, then I don’t suppose I can be chided too roundly for dissenting.

For particularly good reasons to have measured Mr. Romney against Mssrs. Lincoln and Reagan before choosing to support him, take a look at this item by Jeffrey Lord in the Wall Street Journal. “Mitt Romney has a passion for data. A great president needs a passion for principle.”
