Jesse Jackson Jr. compares Obama to Lincoln and Congress to the Confederacy – the Lefts Hank Williams Jr?

File this one under “bizarre.” According to the Daily Caller, on Wednesday, Illinois Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson compared congressional opposition to President Barack Obama’s “American Jobs Act” to the Confederate “states in rebellion.” But this isn‘t the most offsetting portion of Jackson’s commentary, which will likely cause a “fair share” of shock and awe.

In addition to making this oddball comparison, Jackson said that the government should directly employ the 15 million people who are currently without work. The controversial representative said that the president should “declare a national emergency” and take “extraordinary constitutional” action “administratively,” the Daily Caller reports. This, of course, may mean that Congress wouldn’t really be involved in the process.
