FILE - This April 21, 2009 file photo shows historian and author Jon Meacham in New York. Meacham is apologizing for saying on “Morning Joe” that Franklin Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln did not attempt to “rebuild” the country through executive orders, which President Obama advocated earlier this week as an alternative to getting legislation enacted. He wrote in an email Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014, to The Associated Press that he was at best “imprecise” and at worst “just plain wrong.”(AP Photo/Tina Fineberg, File)
