Seven Score and Ten Years Ago …

… President Lincoln made some brief remarks at the dedication of a military cemetery in southern Pennsylvania.

On 19 November, there will be a ceremony to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery at Gettysburg. President Obama has blown off his invitation to participate.

I’m not sure what he has on his schedule for the 19th, but I’ll bet that the world will little note nor long remember what he does that day.

  1. The president should stay away. His standard speeches feature the word “I” way too much. The Gettysburg Address only mentions “we” as a nation, and “they” as the fallen. Never “I.” Lincoln knew that the world did not revolve around him.
