Two’s a Trend

October 24, 2010

Is this Obama’s attempt to fight the rumors that he’s, in fact, a secret Muslim? If so the French Cowboy would humbly suggest that he do better (emphasis original):

For the second time in little over a month, President Barack Obama stripped the word “Creator” from the Declaration of Independence when giving a speech.

“As wonderful as this land is here in the United States, as much as we have been blessed by the bounty of this magnificent continent that stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific, what makes this place special is not something physical. It has to do with this idea that was started by 13 colonies that decided to throw off the yoke of an empire and said, ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that each of us are endowed with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,’” Obama said in Monday’s speech.

The actual text says: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

The first time Obama omitted the three little words “by their Creator” is documented in this clip:

I’ve got to say, this expression on Obama’s face as he makes a long pause where the reference to the Creator should come makes it hard not to agree with the American Thinker’s assessment:

After President Obama says “created equal..”, there is a long pause during which he scowls and blinks several times. For once, he may actually have opted to not read something that was on the teleprompter. It looks like he is disgusted and decided it would be better not to read what the [Declaration] actually says.

A president who deliberately omits “by their Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence? Sérieux? How much worse can it get? It looks as if he was physically incapable of mouthing those three words because his mind wouldn’t let him. Or as if the mere thought of saying them made him nauseous.

We would be better off with this guy in the White House — at least he knows how to tell a joke:
