Radio giant Rush Limbaugh says President Obama holds the attitude that the original residents of America “got screwed” when the United States was officially founded.
The allegation came during the top-rated host’s program today, as he analyzed Obama’s speech last Wednesday at the Congressional Hispanic Congress.
Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples: to British and French, to Dutch and Spanish, to Mexican – (applause) – to countless Indian tribes. We all shared the same land. We didn’t always get along. But over the centuries, what eventually bound us together – what made us all Americans – was not a matter of blood, it wasn’t a matter of birth. It was 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 inalienable rights: life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The actual quotation from the Declaration of Independence is:
“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.”
“He leaves out ‘Creator,’” Limbaugh said. “It was a speech that was on the teleprompter. Either it was on the prompter and he omitted it, didn’t say it, or it was not on the prompter. Regardless, it was a purposeful omission.”
He continued: “This is the thing that’s tough for people to get their arms around. They’ve elected somebody who actually has a grudge against the country as founded. Anytime that I have evidence that concurs with my no-question-about-it-correct opinion, I’m gonna use it. So, eliminate ‘Creator,’ eliminate God when quoting [the Declaration], and then make the statement, ‘Before America came around, boy, look at all these wonderful people who were here who got screwed when America was founded.’”
