I think it's one of the most moving speeches ever in our history. For those who are ignorant, it starts with "Four Score and Seven Years Ago..." Please read it, if you haven't before. It always seems appropriate. I'm very glad Obama's not going to show up. They have invited him but he turned it down. I'm not sure I can stomach his false rhetoric during such a historic commemoration.

It says something about Obama that he doesn't think it's worth showing up for it.
Becky, the presence of Obama would be a lie to Lincoln's words "government of the people. . .by the people. . .for the people. . . shall not perish from the earth". Obama can't support those words because he's a marxist.
Obama would be so lacking in such a comparison. And I hope he sticks to his decision that he doesn't show up. I'd rather he play golf and stays away from the event.
Matthews (ugh!), the event planner should just put him on a do not allow in list.
Poolman, I do think Lincoln would want him there because he holds a lot of respect for Obama's office.
