In a speech the President gave to the Hispanic caucus he attempts a quote from the Declaration of Independence and gets it wrong.   Below is the proper quotation from the Declaration of Independence:  “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”.  In the Presidents speech he left out the section referencing “their Creator” and quoted the rest of the wording as written.

Now when I hear his speech and begin to analyze the question comes to my mind as to why he would do this?  It appears the President is reading from a teleprompter so this tells me “Creator” was left out on purpose by the speech writers, researchers or the President himself.  Then the logical person could possibly make the following two conclusions: 1)The President does not believe in a Creator or he was trying to be political correct and not “offend” anyone by mentioning a “Creator”!

In this situation the President is wrong. The entire quotation from the Declaration of Independence should have been read as it was written.  Regardless if the President does not believe in a Creator or if he was afraid someone would have been offended it does not matter.  This is how our history gets diluted a little piece at a time by things like this. Before you know it we will be told the word “Creator” is not really in the Declaration, or “that is not what Jefferson meant when he wrote the Declaration of Independence”.  Rest assured if the President was quoting some founding documents of Muslims and left out the word “Allah” or something like that all h-ll would break loose.  Oh yeah, and leave it to the media for not reporting on this as they know most Americans would have a fit over this.
