One more thing Obama doesn't know about America: Our National Motto

On November 10, 2010 while giving a speech at the University of Indonesia in Jakarta, Indonesia, Barack Hussein Obama once again demonstrated his total lack of knowledge about the United States of America. This has become a very obvious deficit in Obama's character since he was not raised in America he has learned very little about our country or our culture. According to the official White House transcript of his speech, Obama said:
"Let me begin with a simple statement:  Indonesia bagian dari didi saya.  (Applause.)  I first came to this country when my mother married an Indonesian named Lolo Soetoro.  And as a young boy I was -- as a young boy I was coming to a different world.  But the people of Indonesia quickly made me feel at home."

Obama then went on to say toward the end of his speech: "But I believe that the history of both America and Indonesia should give us hope.  It is a story written into our national mottos.  In the United States, our motto is E pluribus unum -- out of many, one.  Bhinneka Tunggal Ika -- unity in diversity.  (Applause.)"

Either Barack Hussein Obama does not know or refuses to acknowledge that the national motto of the United States is "In God We Trust". How can such an educated person as he claims to be make such a stupid mistake?

Likewise, on numerous previous occasions Barack Hussein Obama has given speeches where he has misquoted the famous line from the Declaration of Independence that 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. "

According to WorldNet Daily News, " It was martial arts champion, actor and WND columnist Chuck Norris who noted Obama actually has omitted "Creator" seven times in just the past few months:"
His research lists the following:

  • On Oct. 21, 2010, at a rally for Sen. Murray in Seattle, Wash.:

    "None of us would be here if it weren't for that extraordinary leap of faith that had been taken. Thirteen colonies deciding to start a revolution based on an idea that had never been tried before – a government of and by and for the people. A government based on the simple proposition that all men are created equal. That we're endowed with certain inalienable rights."

  • On Oct. 18, 2010, at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee dinner in Rockville, Md.:

    "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.'"

  • On Oct. 17, 2010 at a reception for Gov. Ted Strickland in Chagrin Fall, Ohio.:

    "The idea of America has never been easy. The notion of 13 colonies coming together and overthrowing the greatest empire in the world, and then drafting a document that says, we find these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights – that's hard."

  • On Sept. 22, 2010, at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee dinner in New York, N.Y.:

    "And what was sustaining us was that sense that – that North Star, that sense that, you know what, if we stay true to our values, if we believe that all people are created equal and everybody is endowed with certain inalienable rights and we're going to make those words live, and we're going to give everybody opportunity, everybody a ladder into the middle class,…"

  • On Sept. 15, 2010, at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute's 33rd annual awards gala in Washington, D.C.:

    "But over the centuries, what eventually bound us together – what made us all Americans – was not a matter of blood, it wasn't a matter of birth. It was faith and fidelity to the shared values that we all hold so dear. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

  • On Sept. 11, 2010, at the Pentagon Memorial in Arlington, Va.:

    "For our cause is just. Our spirit is strong. Our resolve is unwavering. Like generations before us, let us come together today and all days to affirm certain inalienable rights, to affirm life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

  • On Sept. 10, 2010, at the president's press conference at the White House:

    "With respect to the mosque in New York, I think I've been pretty clear on my position here, and that is, is that this country stands for the proposition that all men and women are created equal; that they have certain inalienable rights – one of those inalienable rights is to practice their religion freely."
This sentence acknowledging our Creator as the source of our Unalienable Rights has been called "one of the best-known sentences in the English language" and "the most potent and consequential words in American history".  By omitting the reference to God that our Founding Fathers acknowledged as the source of our rights, Obama has shown either his ignorance of American history or his disdain for our Judeo-Christian culture or both. Add to this list of complaints are the numerous instances where Barack Hussein Obama has stressed his own Muslim heritage and knowledge of the Koran and his consistently apologetic attitude of America's greatness and our history of defending the freedom of people around the world and the only conclusion I can make is that either he is not an American or does not want to be an American.
