The Reunion

So I said to him, "Barack, I know Abe Lincoln, And you ain't Abe Lincoln .."

Since he used the Lincoln Bible at his inauguration, Obama has made numerous attempts to associate himself with Lincoln. So why doesn't Obama use this famous Lincoln quote?

"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves."
... Abraham Lincoln
