Northern Democrat 1: Can you believe that liar Lincoln? First, he said that we were fighting to preserve the Union. Then he tells us, with that Emancipation Proclamation, that the war is about eliminating slavery for good.
Northern Democrat 2: All these soldiers that died for a lieÖ
ND 1: And tell me this hasnít been the most mismanaged war in history. We had way too few troops at Bull Run.
ND 2: Yeah, Lincolnís Secretary of State Seward said the war would be over in two months. Jeez. Now, all this time later weíre in this unwinnable quagmire. Lincoln has no plan!
ND 1: And the Europeans hate usÖ
ND 2: So much for our constitutional freedoms with that unlawful Writ of Habeas Corpus. Iím sure the government is reading the mail sent to me by my Virginia cousin.
ND 1: Wasnít he the guy that was trying to smuggle Union rifles out of Maryland?
ND 2: Yeah, but you canít just hold a guy in prison on the flimsy evidence they have. Linconís abrogating the Constitution!
ND 1: He didnít even get Congress to approve the Writ Ė he just did it.
ND 2: And those Republicans think that Shermanís capturing of Atlanta is a big deal Ė but did they capture the capitol, Richmond? No!
ND 1: Even former Democratic President Franklin Pierce said Lincoln is responsible for ďall the woe Ö all the degradation, all the atrocity, all the desolation and ruinĒ in our country. Lincoln is Ghengis Khan!
ND 2: The Peace Democrats have it right: This war is lost Ė letís just give the Confederacy itís own country and be done with it. We need a timetable for an immediate pull out.
ND 1: Yeah, war is not the answer. Besides, the slaves should fight for their own freedom if they want it so bad.
ND 2: If we donít win the election in November, we must find a way to impeach Lincoln.
ND 1: Yes! He surely is the worst president in American history.
