Obama declines Gettysburg invitation
November 15, 2013 - Jim Anderson
Tuesday, Nov. 19, marks the 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.
President Barack Obama was invited to attend ceremonies planned at the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg, but has declined.
“His dismissal of the request shows a man so detached from the duty of history, from the men who served in the White House before him, that it is unspeakable in its audacity.”
It’s not as if he told them to cancel the ceremony.
The administration is sending Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell as its representative.
Perhaps some day we’ll find out.
