Obama on Abraham Lincoln: A Limerick.

Excerpt from President Obama and First Lady Ohio Reception Speech October 2010 :

In the words of the first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, who’d have a great deal of trouble getting a nomination in the Republican Party right now. (Laughter.) You know that’s true. (Laughter.) He said that government should leave to the people – let them do what they can do best for themselves.

The Limerick:

Of Abraham Lincoln, Republican first

Obama did mention, it was not rehearsed.

He was making the case:

In these tea party  days

He would be rejected, scorned and accursed.
