Dateline: Monticello, Virginia, October 22, 2010: Thomas Jefferson has stopped rolling in his grave because President Barack Obama has finally restored the word Creator into the Declaration of Independence.
Yes it’s really true!
Our self-proclaimed Christian president, when quoting the Declaration of Independence at a campaign rally on Friday, October 22, in Los Angeles, finally (after three unsuccessful attempts) got up the courage to insert the word Creator — as in endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
That is what the Founding Fathers would have called manning up, which now prompts three 21st century revolutionary questions:
Before these questions can be answered we need to establish the factual record.
Wednesday, September 15: Congressional Hispanic Caucus Gala, Washington, D.C.
President Obama, when quoting the Declaration, omits Creator for the first time:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Heres the White House video and transcript.
After the September 15 speech, Fox News reported the White House said that President Obama went off script and ad libbed when he made that mistake.
Wednesday, September 22: Democratic Congressional Committee Speech in New York
President Obama omitted the word Creator when loosely quoting the Declaration:
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 … .
Heres the White House transcript of the speech.
Monday, October 18: Democratic Congressional Committee Speech in Maryland
Once again President Obama omits the word Creator when quoting:
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.
Here is the official White House speech with the glaring omission.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, when asked why the president did not use the words endowed by their Creator in his Monday speech, told reporters: I can assure you the president believes in the Declaration of Independence.
Obviously what was first reported as a mistake on September 20 was deliberate after the third omission of the word Creator on October 18. Surely President Obama, who taught constitutional law, understands that inalienable rights endowed from their Creator as stated in the Declaration of Independence was so revolutionary a concept that the history of mankind remains forever changed, and he knows the word Creator is the key component of that concept.
So now that you are up to speed on the historic showdown of Obama vs. The Creator lets try to answer the questions posed at the beginning:
Why did President Obama finally program the word Creator into his teleprompter?
Since there has been no official explanation from the White House, I would like to speculate.
Why did he omit the word Creator in the first place?
Again no official explanation other than Robert Gibbs saying on October 19: The president believes in the Declaration of Independence. (Which we all find comforting.)
So I would like to offer some plausible explanations:
Which explains why three days later, on Friday, October 22, Obama restored that problematic Creator word to the Declaration.
Why does any of this matter?
My 5th grade history teacher taught us that up until the writing of the Declaration of Independence the rights of citizens were granted by the king. But our Founding Fathers declared that our rights as citizens of this new nation were granted to us from our Creator and that was a totally revolutionary concept. After recalling my 5th grade history, I find it truly astonishing that our president can omit that revolutionary Creator concept three times and then restore it without any official explanation. Where are the Congressional hearings?
For without the word Creator, one has to ask Obama: From whom are these certain inalienable rights endowed? The government? A king? An emperor? Allah? Buddha? Aqua-Buddha? Congress? Democrats?
You can not have a receiver without a giver.
So according to our president our rights were endowed by a mystery benefactor on September 15, September 22, and October 18.
Then miraculously on October 22, the mystery was resolved when Obama restored that controversial Creator word to our founding document.
We can all rest easier knowing President Obama now acknowledges where our rights as citizens come from, so neither he nor the government he leads can ever take those rights away.
Update: As this article was going to print, it was reported that since Friday, October 22, Obama has quoted the Creator in the Declaration of Independence four times in four speeches.
Obviously our president thinks he needs a major intervention on November 2.
Update: It has been recently reported that since Friday, October 22nd, Obama has quoted the Creator in the Declaration of Independence 4 times in 4 speeches.
Obviously our President thinks he needs a major intervention on November 2nd.
Guess what other liberal has been leaving it out?

It matters because all arguments for “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” happen in the CONTEXT of a Creator giving those rights. Then you have to look at what did the Founders mean by Creator and then the only conclusion you can come to is that homosexuality is wrong and same-sex marriage is wrong.
“President Barack Obama has finally restored the word Creator into the Declaration of Independence.”
His imam must’ve told him he can say ‘creator’ if he’s thinking about allah.
This surprises you?
So then why did the CREATOR create homosexuals?
He gave man"FREE WILL" to make his own choice..either to follow His law or not. (Yes I did not say the PC His/Her) Flame me! I dare ya'.)
Why do you assume that He created homosexuals? Sin has corrupted our nature not God.
