    Default President to Skip 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address

    On November 19, “Remembrance Day,” the nation commemorates sesquicentennial of the 1863 dedication of Soldiers National Cemetery at Gettysburg. Unfortunately, the President is too busy to attend. A short speech was delivered on that occasion by his predecessor, Abraham Lincoln. It was listed in the program as “Dedicatory Remarks,” but history knows it as the Gettysburg Address. Evidently the men who gave their “last full measure of devotion” don’t merit the presence of the man who promised that on his watch the seas would cease to rise and the planet would begin to heal. So he’s sending Interior Secretary Sally Jewell (Sally who?) to represent him. James McPherson, the dean of contemporary Civil War historians, said “I thought he would probably come … it might have been an opportunity for him to say something important.” Exactly.

    Well, golfing and Martha's Vineyard are way more important.

    Remember "Change?" American traditions mean nothing to him.

    Probably better that he wasn't there! He would just say something out of the other side of his mouth and the libs would be gloating over him!
