Now we have the president reciting the preamble of the Declaration of Independence — invoking humanity’s inalienable rights — with one glaring ommission. The Creator.
This is how it was written:
“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.”
Before I comment, I just want to say that I always thought the brouhaha over the “57 states” was silly. Obama’s a Harvard graduate. He clearly doesn’t think there are 57 states in the union. They probably went to some twice or something. Big deal.
And, there’s a lot of juicy gossip making the rounds lately, insider nuggets about tantrums and marital problems inside the White House, relayed by an “unnamed source.” Frankly, it made me queasy. Sounds like politics as usual. Except, of course, if it had been Sarah Palin or George Bush (oh, I forgot, it WAS), it would be pounded into our collective consciousness 24/7 via every possible means including carrier pigeon. The New York Times alone would have doubled their order for snake venom, I mean ink, within five minutes.
However, I’m not giving him a pass on this one. The man has a freaking TELEPROMPTER RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM!
This is how we started:
This is what we have become. (It’s at the end. Watch his face.)
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
