Obama @ Gettysburg: A new birth of sleazedom?

Illo from the always sharp4-Block World

In Obama Invited to Give a New Gettysburg Address - Washington Whispers we learn that " Gettysburg is looking ahead to July 2013, organizers of the 150th anniversary of the decisive three-day clash between Union and Confederate forces have extended an invitation for Obama to deliver his own Gettysburg address, we hear. "That would be really cool," says Gettysburg Convention and Visitors Bureau President [and drooling metrosexual] Norris Flowers. "

Later in the comments which contain a lot of projectile vomiting, commentor "John of XX" offers up the text:

President Obama's Gettysburg Address

Two hundred and thirty-four years ago your fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. I have come to dedicate a government expansion bill, as a final solution for those who work all their lives that that nation might pay its bills. It is altogether fitting and proper that they should do this. Let them know their place.

But, in a larger sense, I cannot dedicate...I cannot consecrate...I cannot hallow this bill.

The brave children and health care advertising props, living and dead, who went all the way to Washington for my photo ops, have consecrated it, far above even my power to add or detract.

The world will little note, nor long remember what your fathers said, but it can never forget what I have done.

It is for us the ruling, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished bill which the health care props who spoke here have thus far so nobly promoted. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from the jobless Democrats we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these Democrats shall not have lost their seats in vain—-that this nation, under me, shall always advance toward a healthier subjection-—and that government of the people, by the statists, for the Democrats, shall not perish from the earth for as long as China allows.

HT: Mushduck for the alert.

He could say "thank you" to show his appreciation for the hundreds-of-thousands who gave their lives to preserve the union and end slavery. He could, that is, if the events of 1861-65 had anything to do with him directly. But seeing as how he is the son of a Nigerian, the adopted son of an Indonesian and lived in that country during his formative years before being dumped on his white grandparents in Hawaii who made sure he attended pricey private schools and made his way into some of the most prestigious universties in the land, he ultimately owes nothing to the sacrifices made in the 1860's and has no heritage of slavery and struggle that is inherent to the vast majority of African Americans. Mr. Obama's experience of America is tenuous at best. His early life was spent on islands in the far Pacific. His adult life was spent in universities and Chicago back rooms. He may be the least American president we have ever had isofar as actual experience of America is concerned. And it shows.

A liar, crook, anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-military, bigoted, righteous, communist sheep in a wolf's costume! IMPEACH this imposter.

Obama pees on this country, the Constitution and those who died fighting for our freedoms. I cannot think of a greater insult. He takes our rights away, plays dirty, hides in the darkness behind closed doors. He apologizes for America! He is not an American worthy to walk the beloved soil at Gettysburg.

He is an insult to my family members who fought for this country and those that are currently serving.

REVERSE THIS DECISION and tell Obama to stay home.
