President Obama spoke on September 15, 2010 with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. At the closing of the speech, the president sought to remind people that America was born out of individuals of varied races and homelands, unified by “faith and fidelity to the shared values that we all hold so dear.”

He went on, “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. That’s what makes us unique. That’s what makes us strong.”

The actual wording of this second sentence of the Declaration of Independence is as follows: “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.”

    What Barry really wants to be able to say:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created for the state, that they are endowed by their state with certain unrepealable entitlements, that among these are a Chevy Volt, a useless desk job in the federal bureaucracy, and the pursuit of a doctor in an overcrowded emergency room.”
