PatriotPost.US For the third time6 in two months, Barack Obama quoted the Declaration about unalienable rights -- and left out the part about where those rights originate.
"As wonderful as this land is here in the United States," he said, "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 [sic] with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.'"
Endowed by whom, Mr. President? By our Creator, that's who. The fact that our Founding Fathers established a government predicated upon Essential Liberty endowed by our Creator is what makes our country great. Obama may think these rights are endowed by the government, but if that's the case, he's not very well endowed. Or is it that he now has a "living declaration" to go with his "living constitution"?
Asked later about why Obama left out the phrase yet again, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dodged. "I haven't seen the comments," he said, "but I can assure you the president believes in the Declaration of Independence." If this is so, then why can't he quote it accurately? And the Leftmedia make fun of Christine O'Donnell.
