Obama chickens out, skips Gettysburg ceremonycomments the Central Pennsylvania Patriot News's Donald Gilliland (merci à AG) regarding the report that the White House has turned down the opportunity to take part in the ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.
Sally Jewell.However, the Ku Klux Klan will be present…
Ring any bells?
Didn't think so.
They're both nobodies - well, actually, they're both Secretaries of the Interior.
The difference is when Usher travelled to Gettysburg, he went with his President.
When Jewell goes this November, she'll be the headliner - her President is taking a pass.
Obama will be a no-show at the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.
For a president who has so demonstrably associated himself with Lincoln - the heir of Lincoln's policies who announced his candidacy from the steps of the Old State Capitol in Springfield and used the Lincoln Bible (twice) at his inauguration - this is nothing less than a profile in cowardice.
In the end, Barack Obama simply didn't have the stones.
History will note that Lincoln's legacy did not live up to the challenge.
Like all other people, living as well as historical, Abraham Lincoln is only important insofar as he can be made to participate in the left's agenda.
