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. ;-)
Is he going to hunt his own game?
(Maybe he should ask Cheney to go with him...)
If he really gets his way with the economy, he’ll ultimately be the Great Emaciator.
The problem in having a showboating President is that America’s position in the world calls for spine and character in its President.
We shall soon see what Obama is made of.
I agree with your post.
I have read enough about Lincoln and while I can’t profess to be an expert, I suspect that Lincoln would be less than impressed with Barack Obama holding the same office as he did.
Some little things are slipping to let us see what their plans truly are.
Bobby Rush, former Black Panther, introducing draconian gun control laws, including the need to have a (gov’t issued) license to OWN and POSESS firearms.
Hmmm... wonder who will be “approved” and who won’t?
This is creepy beyond belief. But then, everything about our first foreign president is creepy beyond belief.
The only "Lincoln" he knows anything about is a Town Car.
Most presidents actually DID something worthwhile first and then received acclaim. This guy looks like he skipped a step.
As Mark Twain said-”Even a hen doesn’t start to cackle until after it lays its eggs”
I can just hear the bass beat pounding:
The painting, which will hang behind Obama, is a landscape of Yosemite Valley at dawn - representing Lincoln's signing of the 1864 Yosemite Grant that set aside the land as a public reserve.
There may soon be a new view of the Yosemite valley
I think this is ironic with all the volcanic activity in Yosemite.
There may soon be a new view of the Yosemite valley
His ancestors were slave traders!!! Why are descendants of slaves in the US so happy with his election??
Post of the day!
Because MrLee, they vote out of ignorance and racial identity. Divide and conquer is the name of this old game.
I’m going to enjoy being in the counterculture. Young people will soon easily understand the stupidity of the new ruling class, and when they learn what it’s costing them....
Thank you for giving me a bit of information that my history teachers failed to bring up.
I reckon it's sort of a good thing that Obama is seeking to model himself after a great Republican President.
And, isn’t he more white than black? I guess I’m glad I’m 60 instead of 20......
I actually went back to the top of the page to check to see if it was The Onion after reading your comment. It's has gotten bad.
Complete with inaugural outfit. Tophat included.
“I guess Im glad Im 60 instead of 20......”
I hear ya. I’m beginning to see the value of being 61 with this mess coming down. I’m ashamed of the mess being left to my children.
Paying tribute to Lincoln (as opposed to Obama being Lincolnesque which he is not) is fine.
I’m sure Obama knows the left teaches that Lincoln was a racist who didn’t free any slaves. So Obam praising Lincoln strikes me as odd.
Prior to taking the reins of power as the world's first economic fascist, Lincoln was an advocate of the 'American System,' or 'Mercantilism.' Lincoln devoted his entire career to the establishment of a central bank. As a new Republican, he was able to establish a cental bank and implement the failed 'corporate welfare' policies of the Whig party, financed through the printing of paper ignorantly perceived as money.
Upon taking office Lincoln committed a series of unconstitutional acts Including launching an invasion of the South without consulting Congress, as required by the Constitution; declaring martial law; blockading the Southern ports; suspending the writ of habeas corpus for the duration of his administration; imprisoning without trial thousands of Northern citizens; arresting and imprisoning newspaper publishers who were critical of him; censoring all telegraph communication; nationalizing the railroads; creating several new states without the consent of the citizens of those states; ordering federal troops to interfere with the elections in the North by intimidating Democratic voters; deporting a member of Congress, Clement L. Vallandigham of Ohio, for criticizing the administration's income tax proposal at a Democratic Party rally; confiscating private property; confiscating firearms in violation of the Second Amendment; and effectively gutting the ninth and 10th amendments to the Constitution, among other things.
The O’s emancipation proclamation will be for the “WORKERS,” in typical Marxist lingo. The problem is that O’s Omancipation proctologizing will Oppress all people.
One thing you can say about the one, he never has a thought he can call his own.
The Odiot is truly a victory of symbolism over substance...SSZ
