Homeland Secretary Napolitano must've missed "middle-aged dads who like to quote Lincoln" on her list of "right-wing extremists."

Glenn Beck cited the following Lincoln quote as possibly representing the dad's assertion that "Lincoln's primary thing was that he believed the people had a right to liberty..."

"That some should be rich, shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built."
-Abraham Lincoln, Reply to New York Workingmen's Democratic Republican Association (21 March 1864)

Yeah, well it's obviously an anti-CNN quote. I'd expect no less from FOXNews.
