I’m not even sure if TOTUS was involved in this one. During a Congressional Hispanic Caucus event, President Obama quoted directly from the Declaration of Independence, yet he just skipped the part about our Creator, who endowed us certain inalienable rights … life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Mentioned at the end of last week, this mis-quote is Hot Air’s Obamateurism of the Week. I’ve elected to include the full remarks of the president’s speech below and you’ll find the mis-quote just after the 22 minute mark (video below).
Frank Ross at Big Journalism and Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit also noted the mis-quote. Be it intentional or a mistake, it’s the perception of this screw-up that matters. Maybe that’s why the President headed to church on Sunday, and even took Communion at St. John’s Episcopal Church?
If you want to watch the entire thing, a good portion of the speech was you best remember who is on your side and who is against you. The entire event was an attack on Republicans, conservatives and libertarians. He also has a warped view of American history. He’s fighting to ensure Latino voters keep pulling the levers for Democrats.
This guy is the ultimate divider in America right now.
It’s bad enough he skipped the part about our Creator endowing us with those inalienable rights, but he has the guts to list entitlements provided by the federal government – all designed to steal liberty and property from one and give to another – and then quote the Declaration of Independence a few moments later?
