In what will be a Lincoln-themed inauguration from top to bottom, Obama won't only follow in the footsteps of the former president - he'll also eat like him, it was announced yesterday.
Obama's jampacked Abe-apalooza moved into high gear with an announcement from the Congressional Inaugural Committee that it will hold a luncheon next Tuesday following the swearing-in ceremony that's modeled after foods Lincoln enjoyed.

I can. Overreaching!
From Great Emancipator
to Great Constipator...
and the sheep will eat it up like a good like flock..
He already has a crazy wife, let’s see if a Civil War will follow in 0bama’s continuing homage to Lincoln.
Can you imagine a Republican acting like this about Lincoln?
The MSM would be mocking him/her and calling it “creepy.”
“”It’s always good to model yourself after a great president,” said Eric Foner, a professor of American history at Columbia University. “The proof will be in the pudding.””
Here’s some ‘pudding’ for Barak about slavery.
In a response to a New York Tribune editorial he wrote a letter to Editor Andrew Greeley explaining why slaves were being freed. He stated:
“My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union”
Too bad Obama and the rest of our ‘leaders’ aren’t willing to stop the race baiting to save our ‘union’.
Based on the title, I thought the article would be about how Ford won the bid for a new Presidential limo fleet.
Obama wants to be a Republican?
That’s too white.
Will he be switching his skullcap for a Stovepipe hat for the day?
Has anyone told this foreigner what happened to Lincoln?
Ironic that 0bama attempts to drape himself with the trappings of Lincoln who, de facto, ended slavery in America (even if it wasn’t his intent),
while Zero embraces policies that enslave more Americans than ever were during pre-civil war America.
You just can’t put enought lipstick on that pig.
But does it ever dawn on “the One” that Lincoln was a Republican?
Yes, this is creepy. If I remember correctly, Lincoln’s inauguration was followed by a scuffle on an island in the harbor at Charleston, South Carolina, followed by a brawl somewhere in the Virginia woods near the nation’s capital.
I also recall that the theme of Lincoln’s presidency was that the union of states could not be broken apart. Is the theme of Obama’s presidency the Hegelian dream that the state, once established, is eternal?
My son and I watched the film “Red Dawn” this weekend. He’s 10 years old. We had a long discussion about freedom and liberty, and what people have to do to protect their liberty. Right now he’s running around the house yelling, “Wolverines!”
We’ll see how Lincolnesque Obama really is. Maybe he’s more like Lincoln Chaffee? LOL
“Welcome to 2009 emancipation, whitey.”
Birds of a feather: Eric Foner, “neo-Marxist professor of history ...”
How does the saying go? He is not worthy to tie Abe Lincoln’s shoes.
To make it perfectly clear, I am speaking about his record and his character, not his color.
What a creep. I thought the Abe Lincoln train ride was bad enough, but this really is pathologically narcissistic.
The only thing you can say in favor of his Abe Lincoln act is that it’s a little less bizarre than his earlier Messiah act. But it comes from the same habit of totally unreal, pathological narcissism.
Yes, but he’s going to wear it backwards, gangsta-style. ;-)
