Video: Obama version of the Gettysburg Address
Obama Removes God From the Gettysburg Address
Curiously enough, in his version of the speech, President Barack Obama's delivery contained an omission - in a line that every other celebrity delivered as "that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom," the President left out the words "under God."
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.
We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground.
The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
Abraham Lincoln November 19, 1863
In the 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, Obama screw it up. The symbolism of the Gettysburg Address mark the end of the civil war and the period of healing. Instead, Obama had the audacity to change the original speech written and spoken by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863. Of all presidents, the American people had to bear the embarrassment as Obama is trying to rewrite history. If Obama wanted to destroy history, he should have done what the Nazi did during WWII. In order to forget the past, the Nazi tried to destroy valuable treasures and artifacts from our culture. Overall, Obama refusal to salute the flag or make reference to GOD speaks volumes. Obama embrace to a small minority of atheist and his Muslim brothers will not set well with the American people. In fact, Obama denying to say GOD is a spit in the face of the American people.
