Please tell me this is a joke. RT @MattCover: Abe Lincoln is Obama's "Homeboy from Illinois."

Sadly, no. He said that.

Did President Obama really just call Abraham Lincoln his "homeboy from Illinois"??

As he begins Iowa speech, Pres Obama notes man in audience dressed as Abe Lincoln: "my homeboy from Illinois," he announces.

His account also tweeted out a photo of “his homeboy” today.

We are only surprised that he didn’t further insert himself into President Lincoln’s biography.

That was the opening to his speech on middle-class tax cuts (while he is refusing to extend the Bush tax cuts) in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, today.

We’ll be live-tweeting the President’s speech on @Obama2012—follow along for the latest.

As always, his speech is all about him.

POTUS on Iowa in 2008: "This is a state that gave me a chance when nobody else would."

President Obama: "I'm betting that you will be as fired up as you were in 2008, because you know the stakes."

— OFA (@OFA) July 10, 2012

"What's at stake is two very different visions for our country."—President Obama

— OFA (@OFA) July 10, 2012

You got that right. And we don’t care for your vision.

“No matter what the national media was saying, no matter how far down we were in the polls, I’d come here to Iowa and I’d feel hopeful.”

— OFA (@OFA) July 10, 2012

Oh, well. As long as he feels hopeful. As for everyone else: “How’s that hope and change working for you?”

Twitchy will monitor President Obama’s speech and update accordingly.

Update:

"A strong middle class is what we are fighting for" @BarackObama in Iowa."That's what I've been fighting for for last 3 1/2 years.."applause

President Obama: “All we ask is for our hard work to pay off; for our responsibility to be rewarded.”

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) July 10, 2012

Demands to be rewarded! Everyone is “entitled,” you see.

President Obama: “I’m running because after a decade of war, it’s time to do some nation building here at home.”

— OFA (@OFA) July 10, 2012

POTUS: “Our vision of a strong middle class is what we're fighting for.”

— OFA (@OFA) July 10, 2012

Again, champ, that vision has shown itself to be an epic fail. Time for some corrective surgery!

All. About. Him.

POTUS: “Through every one of my campaigns, what’s given me hope is you. Your ability to cut through the nonsense and identify what's true.”

— OFA (@OFA) July 10, 2012

Post-Obama music today: U2's "Even Better Than The Real Thing." Lyric: "Give me one more chance and you'll be satisfied"

“You can still make change happen. You can still inspire each other. Because you still inspire me.”—President Obama

— OFA (@OFA) July 10, 2012

Whew! You haven’t disappointed him … yet … America! The hubris. It burns.
