Lincoln's advice for Obama as the ship sinks

Barack Obama is lying awake in be in The White House, wondering how his plans for change have gone so wrong, when the ghost of George Washington appears to him.
Obama is unfazed and says: "Tell me, Mr President, "how can I best serve my country?

George Washington replies:"Never tell a lie."

Then the ghost of Thomas Jefferson appears and Obama asks: "Tell me, Mr Jefferson, how can I best serve my country?"

Jefferson replies: "Always put the People First."

Then Lincoln's ghost appears and Obama says:" "Tell me, Mr Lincoln, how can I best serve my country?" And Lincoln replies: "Go to the theatre."
