Here’s an interesting video about a new work of art by Jon McNaughton (via Michelle Malkin):
McNaughton’s Web site has an online version of the painting that shows closeups and offers clickable summaries for each president (and other components of the painting).
I think this painting , particularly the online version could generate some interesting captions. You’d have to imagine the ballons near the selected President’s mouth. I know you don’t like poems, but are you game?
From Abraham Lincoln’s mouth in 1860
I am glad to see that a system of labor prevails under which laborers can strike when they want to. … I like the system which lets a man quit when he wants and wish it might prevail everywhere.
In no instance have… the churches been guardians of the liberties of the people.
That’s from the guy looking like he wants to shine Barack’s shoes

America was indebted to immigration for her settlement and prosperity. That part of America which had encouraged them most had advanced most rapidly in population, agriculture and the arts.
The United States is not a nation to which peace is a necessity.
With me it is exceptionally true that the Presidency is no bed of roses.
I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made.
Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.
