BO states Gen. Lee would be "very confused"
The new president slighted Gen. Lee during the Alfalfa Dinner this weekend.  By the way, I think most folks born in the 19th century (Northern and Southern) would be surprized by his election.
Here is what BO said:
"Many of you are aware that this dinner began almost one hundred years ago as a way to celebrate the birthday of (Southern US Civil War) General Robert E. Lee," Obama said.

"If he were here with us tonight, the general would be 202 years old — and very confused," the US leader quipped.
