Obama Still Thinks He's Lincoln?

Money quote from his campaign speech - sorry, State of the Union Address -  last night:

“I believe what Republican Abraham Lincoln believed,” he said, “that government should do for people only what they cannot do better by themselves, and no more.”

But where the Great Emancipator diverges from the once-Great Orator is that Barack Obama thinks the government can do everything better than the people themselves.  From health care, to eating habits, to the illumination of their homes, to the cars they drive and what devices they use inside them.  If there's a sweet spot where Obama believes the private sector can do a better job than government, I haven;t heard him mention it yet...

It doesn't mean that Obama wasn't honest in his statement above.  He simply has a much, much lower opinion of the American people than the great leaders he claims to channel...
