Paging historians

I'm wondering. In his first five months in office, did Abraham Lincoln give any speeches blaming James Buchanan for the Civil War?
Did he blame the Founding Fathers for not taking care of slavery?
Did he speak longingly about the problems he'd rather be dealing with, instead of southern states leaving the union?
I've never heard of such speeches. Are they out there?
Somehow, I'd really doubt it.

VERY profound. If that was an original thought, kudos. If not, who cares, it is still great and I am glad that you made the point.
