Obama to Start ‘We the People’ Website… Hopefully He Won’t Misquote the Constitution Again
Back in 2010 during the State of the Union Address, the former Constitutional lawyer, or senior lecturer, cited the US Constitution in his address to the nation. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence… not the Constitution.
The B-Cast posted the video:
In last night’s State of the Union Address, President Obama said:
We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal….
Um, wrong founding document, Mr. President. It is in our Declaration of Independence that we read:
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.
And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court moments later in that same speech.
Now Barack Obama is going to launch a ‘We the People’ website to let his people contact his government “ to address a problem, change a policy, or take action on range of issues.” Hopefully, they won’t screw up the Constitution on this website, too.
