Barack Obama invoked Abraham Lincoln in Thursday’s speech in which he accepted his party’s nomination for president.
“I have been driven to my knees many times by the overwhelming conviction that I had no place else to go," the president said, quoting his Illinois predecessor.
To judge by early reviews, he may be staying on his knees.
David Brody at the Christian Broadcasting Network, said the speech felt like recycled campaign material. “We’ve heard all of this before.”
David Brooks at The New York Times called it “modest and incommensurate with the problems at hand.”
