150/150 hindsight makes it a lot easier for democratic newspaper to see things better.  However, it shows democrats have changed little over the last 150 years.  In 1863 they panned the arguably greatest American speech ever in an effort to make a republican look bad.  When it becomes apparent their scheme to alter political opinion has failed, they simply apologize.  By the way, the Chicago papers, just as expectedly blasted the speech :nono:

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
