Obama snubs Gettysburg address 150th anniversary
It will feature the "U.S. Marine Band; 'President Lincoln's Own Band' from the movie, Lincoln; Governor Tom Corbett; a reading of the Gettysburg Address by Lincoln portrayer James Getty; and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service will administer the Oath of Allegiance to sixteen new citizens." Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell will represent the administration in Obama's stead.
President Obama "declined an invitation to speak at [the commemoration]."
Oh really? I wonder why.. is he afraid of the phrase "This nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." It certainly stands in contrast of the actions of Obama and the left (facta non verba) ruling of the commoners, by the ruling class, for the elites "for their own good"
Wonder what the golf is like mid-November in southeastern PA...
