SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — President Barack Obama says the nation will weather its current difficulties if Americans remember the spirit of President Abraham Lincoln. He says the challenges are new but not insurmountable.
Barack Obama today paid tribute to his White House hero and role model, President Abraham Lincoln, at a US Capitol ceremony marking the 200th anniversary of the 16th president's birth.
A playful thought: Is Barack Obama the reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln?
The president has never been terribly subtle about his admiration for and interest in Abraham Lincoln. So, it's no surprise that Obama travels to Springfield, Ill. today to deliver remarks at the 102nd Abraham Lincoln Association Annual Banquet in honor of the Great Emancipator's 200th birthday
So now dear friend, feel free to call me by my Allah given name, Barack Hussein Obama. And while I quite enjoyed the citizens of this great country calling me the Messiah, I am absolutely thrilled that I can bring my middle name out from hiding. (Speaking of coming out of hiding, did you see Qaddafi's brilliant analysis of the Mideast conflict in my favorite publication, the fair and balanced New York Times?)
