More historical perspective

Check out this quote:

"The public censured the Commander-in-Chief for the bloodshed, for this seemingly endless war. More and more politicians and journalists, Republicans as well as Democrats, called his administration incompetent. Military failures produced demands for peace negotiations. And the President was roundly condemned for curtailing civil liberties."

Ted Kennedy describing George W. Bush in summer 2005? Nope, it’s actually poet and novelist Daniel Mark Epstein speaking of of Abraham Lincoln in the spring of 1863.
