President Obama flunks history and awareness of the American spirit…again

Once again our fearless leader gives a populist speech about what it means to be an American. President Obama speaking to the Hispanic Caucus this weekend, recited the Declaration of Independence and intentionally left the parts about God.

He also riled the audience up with a line that had Hispanics cheering when he said Mexicans were here in our exact part of North America long before The United States was an idea.

Sorry Barry. The United States as an idea came no later than 1776 and was a reality in 1787. Mexico first became a state independent of Spain in 1821.

    “This land was home to many peoples…British, French, Dutch and Spanish…Mexicans…but what bound us all together, and made us all Americans…”

    Wait, wait, wait, British and French and Dutch and Spanish aren’t Americans.  Mexicans aren’t Americans.  Only Americans are Americans.  Why does he think that anyone that has a progressive bone in their body somehow is entitled to become an American?  

    And these values that he speaks of:

    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 unalienable rights.  Life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.

    Wait, wait, wait, those aren’t shared values.  The British, at the time, did not think we were all created equal.  After all, they had a king.  And so did France.  Kings were in place because of the divine right.  Clearly men were not all created equal.

    Those values that Obama talks of are Christian values.  And guess what???  The Indians he speaks of did not believe in Christ.  Nope, not a bit.

    The whole speech is a bunch of revisionist, liberal propaganda.  The guy needs to go….
