CNN says 2 Presidents have failed to come to Gettysburg for the anniversary of Lincoln's great speech - Gettysburg says that NO President has failed to come until Obama. Perhaps he will 'change' his mind.

Obama Snubs 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg Address - National Journal

The Press was filled with "Obama is the new Lincoln" both before and after his election. Obama certainly encouraged that perception. There will be a lot of speculation about why he has decided to stay away from this 150th Anniversary and a lot of people do "care" about it.

For Obama, Lincoln was model president - CNN January 18, 2009

Obama even had a star studded gala at the Lincoln Memorial a couple of nights before his inauguration in 2009 - 400,000 people attended, including the Obamas'.

Indeed!

Even, "I actually did vote for the $87 billion, before I voted against it."*, John Kerry, who is about as blue as he is a philanderer, supported Bush on Iraq.

*FactCheck stated that "Kerry has never wavered from his support for giving Bush authority to use force in Iraq, nor has he changed his position that he, as President, would not have gone to war without greater international support.

Our President, Mr Obama, and his followers have one common denominator. They are all truth challenged. Having extreme difficulty telling the difference between integrity and honesty and lies, exaggeration and inability to accept responsibility. It is not their fault. They are just sick. Or child-like.

Iraq was a tragic mistake. Possibly Afghanistan, too. Conservatives can acknowledge that.

Interesting word, "unseat", usually used in reference to a cabal in a banana republic.

As for 'unseating', you refer to 2012? That was the election stolen by illegally using the IRS to supress the opposing vote and persecute political opposition? The media propaganda machine played a critical role in returning the community organizer to office.

No, you can't claim obama won re-election in 2012.

Giving Bush the authority is not the same as supporting the invasion. Especially after Gomer threw out the UN weapons inspectors for NOT finding wmd`s.

Bush never said afterwards that he didn't say there were WMD, and that is the difference. Bush owned his own actions and words. Obama likes to pretend he didn't say what he did, twist what he said, or outright claim he didn't say something - even when there are multiple incidents on video memorializing his words.

Yes, that is the only way you can explain how Romney lost that election.

Have you NOT heard and understand that every intelligence agency TOLD HIM that Iraq had the weapons?
What should he have said? Uh, ok all you intelligence people that are paid millions of $$$ to know what's going on, I think you're wrong?
Most EVERYONE thought Iraq had 'em at the time.
