Skip to comments.Obama Again Omits ‘Creator’ When Speaking of ‘Inalienable Rights’
Posted on 09/28/2010 10:31:59 AM PDT by opentalk
Just seven days after he sparked controversy by omitting the word Creator when he closely paraphrased the passage from the Declaration of Independence that says all men are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, President Barack Obama again omitted the Creator when speaking about the inalienable rights that everybody is endowed with.
This time the president was speaking at a Sept. 22 fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, and his reference to inalienable rights was not as close a paraphrasing of the Declaration as it had been the week before.
"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 were going to make those words live, and were going to give everybody opportunity, everybody a ladder into the middle class, every child able to go as far as their dreams will take them--if we stay true to that, then were going to be able to maintain the energy and the focus, the fight, the gumption to get stuff done,Obama said at the DCCC/DSCC event, according to the transcript posted by the White House.

I cannot wait for the time The Creator sends this POS to the eternal flames.
There’s a reason for that. If you get him to say “Creator” he gets whisked back to that Bizarro Dimension from whence he came. (ala Superman and Mr. Kwiksilpritchlikwhatever).
Amen to that. And the Creator WILL!
Is it any surprise? He is a godless man.
Including Creator would assume that he both knows what the Declaration says and that he agrees that those rights flow from God.
Given those two circumstances, why would we assume he would include Creator? He clearly doesn’t believe one or both of them.
Anyone still think the first time was simply a flub?
who will make clear to obama that his beliefs do not trump our values? His refusal to say the word “Creator” is the kind of childish petulance you can expect from a narcicist who hates this country.
How is it that this closet muslim insults our beliefs while we tolerate theirs?
So, it wasn’t a “slip of the tongue” the first time.
Mytzlplk. Yea, I’m a nerd.
“Mytzlplk. Yea, Im a nerd.”
That’s Mr. Mytzlplk, sir. If we are going to do Nerd, let’s do it right!
Unfortunately I suspect this guy will go around forever, gracelessly unemployed, telling us for 30 years how he was right and the rest of us were all wrong.
“...were going to give everybody opportunity...”
This is typical Dem posturing that contradicts the concept of natural rights. We cannot give what God has already given.
He really misses the whole point doesn’t he? That whole natural rights argument just escapes him - the so-called ‘law professor.’
GIANT F*CKING DOUCHEBAG.
and were going to give everybody opportunity, everybody a ladder into the middle class,
sounds like more of his spread the wealth , social justice rhetoric
OK Now that little pr!ck is doing that on purpose to pi$$ me off...I know it....
But he still used the word “endowed”, which presumes that those rights don’t just exist within us. He’s not walking the tightrope very well.
Obamao knows that allah isn’t the creator, merely a god that hates men.
A ladder to the middle. That's funny! Reminds me of a scene from "Almost Famous":
Lester Bangs: What, are you like the star of your school?
William Miller: They hate me.
Lester Bangs: Yeah, well, you'll meet them all again on their long journey to the middle.
He is the best example, till the lastest mistake, of a disaster foisted upon the public by the dems.
The devil hates to say “God,Creator,Almighty,etc..).
We’ll sure be omitting Obama come November, 2012.
Can't wait to see how he edits the Bill of Rights.
Notice how smoothly this Marxist segues from the Jeffersonian principles upon which our nation was founded, and into Socialist dogma.
I still cannot believe that liberals vociferously defend him against the charge of Socialist, with evidence like this littering his entire public career.
True reciprocity would have the Creator omit Obama.
Weird. I thought of that character just the other day. Wasn't it spelled "Mxyzptlk", though?
Gotta be from a certain era to even know what we're talking about...
Well now he can’t say it was a mistake.
His teleprompter is feed on what he is to say there is no excuse.

Obama keeps using the term, “inalienable rights.” Doesn’t the Declaration of Independence refer to “unalienable rights?”
To my mind, there’s a difference: “unalienable rights” would be those rights that can’t be surrendered, sold or transferred to someone else - to the government, for example, or another person(God-given rights, like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness).
“Inalienable rights” would be rights that can be transferred with the consent of the person possessing those rights.
Is he making a conscious decision to use the word “inalienable,” or does he just not know how the Declaration reads?
Would the antiCHRIST acknowledge a CREATOR?
I think you are missing Obama’s point (or viewpoint)
Those rights are ENDOWED by GOVERNMENT, not a creator, in his world.
“every child able to go as far as their dreams will take them”.....
....So we can tax the heck out of them and punish them for their success.
But he had no problem reciting the shahada.
According to Islamic scholars, reciting the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of faith, makes one a Muslim. This simple yet profound statement expresses a Muslim’s complete acceptance of, and total commitment to, the message of Islam.
Obama knows this from his Quranic studies — and he knows the New York Times will publish this fact and it will be seen throughout the Islamic world.
Regardless of Obama’s religion, what message is he sending the world’s 1.2 billion Muslims?
It’s interesting that Obama has remembered the Shahada for the 35 years since he left Indonesia — and in ‘first-class’ Arabic — especially since he believes the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth.”
The fact that Obama can recall the Shahada after 35 years and the fact that he believes that the daily call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth” say that those Muslim prayers run through his head often — what does that make him?
That “ladder to the middle class” is fine, except,
you have to FORCE other people to build the ladder,
and/or take from them, again by force, the materials to build that ladder.
“...and were going to make those words live, and were going to give everybody opportunity,...”
“..and GIVE...” He says it right there, folks, where the “rights” actually come from in his view. Nothing could be clearer.
Jimmy Carter Part Deux, in more ways than one. Hopefully he will also emulate Carter in having only a single term.
It’s ridiculous. You can’t fight the bell curve. The very fact that it is the middle defines its limits. You can’t all be in the middle, or else it’s not the middle anymore. There’s always going to be a low end, a high end, and a middle. And ANYONE with two good arms and legs and a willingness to work can still reach the middle. It’s really not even hard to do.
The fact that Obama can recall the Shahada after 35 years and the fact that he believes that the daily call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth say that those Muslim prayers run through his head often
And some douchebag democrat named “Professor Marc Lamont Hill” says the country is “a bunch of loonies” for believing that 0bama is a Muslim.
In other words, the people at the low end are defective.
Gotta work on that. If I am gonna walk the nerdy walk, I gotta talk the nerdy talk.
He doen’t mention it because he thinks it is redundant to talk about ones self. I am surprised he hasn’t changed it from Creator to I or me yet.
Obama needs to exercise his inalienable right to move out of government housing.
He is so arrogant.
The "we" -- Obama,czars, Kagan, progressives,
“I, uh, have been criticized for referring to myself too many times so, uh I have, er, omitted the creator reference from my remarks so it doesn’t happen again. You are now free to worship me around the country.”
He reportedly has written about his opposition to the language in the Constitution as well.
It is not an “accident”, it is a redacting of one of our founding documents.
He’s here to toss it on the scrap pile of history.
“The same people that you meet going up are the same people that you meet going down...”
I’m still waiting for the day that someone figures out that the Declaration of Independence uses unalienable, not inalienable.
