I am proud of President Obama and his observation of President Lincoln's 200th Birthday. Let the nation unite under his leadership and direction as we are inspired to the American call to action for economic recovery and growth. I suppport the new president and his efforts and ask that Congress support his guidance and new direction during these challenging economic times.
