President Barack Obama is skipping events marking 150 years since Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address. This shouldn't be a huge shock. Yes, Obama has sometimes embraced the opportunity to compare himself to Lincoln. And what a historical opportunity to miss: The nations first black president honoring Lincolns legacy in person. But parks officials point out that the last sitting president to attend a Nov. 19 event in Gettysburg was Rutherford B. Hayes. No, whats surprising is the White House's apparent explanation for Obamas decision to turn down an invitation offered months ago: Its Obamacares fault. Specifically, the HealthCare.gov debacle.

It’s OBAMA’S fault!
There are no golf courses in Gettysburg Pennsylvania?
He does not belong there, anyway.
Obama doesn’t belong there. He would desecrate hollowed ground. He would spoil the whole event.
Pity. It would have been a perfect venue to announce the re-institution of slavery.
True!...He would say something stupid like: “If I could speak to Lincoln today I would advise him blah blah blah blah!
This has nothing to do with the Website train wreck. Since the roll out, Obama has attended nine political fundraisers and has had six golf outings.
“If they would have had The ACA, Mary Todd Lincoln would have been able to get mental health treatment.”
lincoln was a republican you know.
I for one would not want him there to desecrate that honorable site. He has no honor in him.
It is a very good thing that the Muslim/Communist did not show up.
He would have turned it into a political clownshow. “If Lincoln were alive today, he would advise Americans to sign up for obamacare!”
What’s more, Obama was recorded reading the Gettysburg Address omitting the words, “under God”. (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3093077/posts?q=1&;page=51)
Like we’re supposed to believe this lazy arrogant fool is actually working on anything. I wouldn’t be surprised if he hides in his office most of the day, watching tv and trying to look busy.
“Obama skips Gettysburg “
He couldn’t memorize the address.
He knew he would b booed.
If he got booed by a bunch of college students on a liberal campus in Maryland, you can just imagine how the sorts of patriots who would show up to commemorate Gettysburg would greet him.
Why is he not going - really?
He probably just found out Lincoln was a Republican.
Yes, even the President is so fervently working on the fix, he is in the back room rewriting code 12 hrs a day.
Yeah, because we all know Obozo is the one working on fixing the website./s
