    The ghost of Lincoln looks over Obama to make sure that he doesn't taint the name of Illinois like Blago did.

    Hey Obama make sure that you squint really hard. Or else you won't be able to see the teleprompter in front of your face.

    You know, Abraham Lincoln hasn't paid taxes in over 140 years. Maybe we should consider him for a posthumous Cabinet position.

    Lincoln: "Wait Obama, are you sure you want to do this? Are you sure you want to throw around $789 Billion."

    Obama: "Of course Abe, I'm really doing it for you, to celibate your 200th birthday!!! But shhh, let's just keep that between me, and you!"

    The ghost of Lincoln watches Obama and laments the unavailability of a teleprompter when he gave the Gettysburg Address.

    President Lincoln,
    what do I do?

    Jobs, mortgages, industries, banks, public deficit, wars, the nation’s confidence, credibility, perhaps my wife...

    Lincoln respond,
    Don't take a mountain out of a molehill.
    No pain, no gain, my son!

    President Obama is hopeful that the viewers may write captions about President Lincoln today; not ones about him or the economy.
