Will Lincoln Survive "Gettysburg" Comments?

Transcript from "Hannity's America" November 20, 1863

Sean Hannity: Well, we've got the transcript right here and it looks like Mr. Lincoln's really put his foot in it this time. The question for our panelists is: "After Gettysburg, Does Lincoln still have a chance for re-election?" Pat?

Pat Buchanan: I'd have to say no Sean. Right from the start he's set himself up as another liberal elitist, hopelessly out of touch with the voters. "Four Score and Seven..." The number he's looking for is eighty-seven. Maybe if he put down his chablis and brie plate for a minute he'd understand how real people actually speak.

Laura Ingraham: And the whole thing was written on the back of an envelope for cryin' out loud. Hey Abe, get a clue: it's called "paper." Not everybody can use a perfectly good envelope, which as all Americans know is meant for mailing things... and he uses it for scratch paper! Give me a break!

Sean Hannity: Let's go a little further down here to the comments that really seem to have set American's teeth on edge, the part about not being able to dedicate, consecrate or "hallow", whatever that means, this ground. Is it wise for someone running for re-election to tell us what we can't do? Does he just hate Americans? Pat?

Pat Buchanan: Sure sounds like it to me.

Laura Ingraham: Well, he certainly doesn't seem to care much for women that's for sure: "Our fathers"? "Brave men"? "All men are created equal?" I tell you, if women could vote, they certainly wouldn't vote for him!

Sean Hannity: And here he says we're engaged in a "Great Civil War." Really Mr. President? I bet there's a lot of Americans out there who'd like to know what you think is so great about it. He also says "The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here..." I bet now he sure wishes we're not gonna remember!

Pat Buchanan: I know it's a small point, but isn't "Abraham" a Jewish name?
