President Obama pushed back on criticism of his recent appearance with comedian Zach Galifianakis to promote the Affordable Care Act, noting that President Lincoln "loved telling the occasional bawdy joke."

Lincloln was known for his sharp wit and intelligence...-not ‘racy jokes’.

Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Lincoln didn’t have a staff of 20 people writing “racy” jokes for him. Barry does.
Obama wouldn’t be capable of tying Lincoln’s shoe laces.
Doing a comedy/infomercial with an elite Hollywood movie star is Barry’s idea of being “out among regular folks,”
I doubt Abe would’ve corked up for a turn with a minstrel show while serving as President.

My fav is Ol Abe went out on a 3 day bender and the first thing out of his mouth was “ I FREED WHO !!!!!!!!!!”
That’s as close as he’s going to get.The “regular folks”in this country can’t tolerate his presence.
Lincloln was known for his sharp wit and intelligence

It was said that you had to lock up the children and preachers when Honest Abe came to town. In Illinois, Linclon was a famous retailer of filthy stories.
Of course you have to go to the Daily Kos to find Lincoln’s ‘racy jokes’...
John Wilkes Booth also shot him in self defense because Abe Lincoln had a time machine.
Barky being so much like Lincoln and all. :=) Snicker
Man’s a fool.
Don’t care if saying it’s a sin....
Can you see that affirmative action Kenyan phony writing the Gettysburg Address? He couldn’t even correctly punctuate it, much less write it or understand it. How dare he compare himself to Lincoln in any way.
Does this guy ever stop being an idiot?
Actually, Lincoln was known for enjoying “ethnic” jokes. There’s a reason his favorite song was “Dixie.”
