STFU Mr. President

I don’t know if his teleprompter was broken, or his inner jackass was on full display but Obama managed to make a complete ass of himself. He starts off by saying:

“Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples. The British and French, the Dutch and Spanish, to Mexicans, to countless Indian tribes. We all shared the same land.”

Mexico declared independence in 1810. This land sure as hell wasn’t Mexico’s before America was even an idea. He then followed it up by misquoting the Constitution:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

He left out “that they”, “are”, “by their Creator”, and “that among these are”. Now, I get leaving out parts like “that they” but the omission of “Creator” by a Constitutional law professor is a highly suspect omission.

Including Mexicans in the “this was their land first” argument, is typical of far leftist ideology which basically says America is a big ol’ meany and we should be sorry about all the things we’ve done and give everything back. Look, America has done some shameful things, but there’s a reason Mexicans keep sneaking in. It’s because America is better than that poorly run piece of crap country below us. It’s not because America is mean, it’s because they suck at what they’re doing. Any mentality that says they deserve our land, as though the land on our side was just the good side and that’s why we’re doing better is just asinine. I’m not saying Obama plays fully into this, but he certainly does pander to it.

As far as the “Creator” omission, to be clear I’m agnostic. However, the Constitution says what it says. Someone like Obama should damn well know it considering that’s what he’s supposed to be educated in, so when he makes omissions like that it shows a desire to be revisionist. I can’t respect that. The Constitution is one of the greatest documents ever written and quite frankly, Obama doesn’t seem worthy to speak on it much less go so far as to reword it according to his views.

    I would really love to post a long ass rant about this post in your favor, but I have a cold. In short, I completely agree with everything you have said here.

    HMMMM, while I hate to water down a good old rant, isn;t it true that Mexicans would have wondered the lands an age ago? I know what you’re getting at but point being, it’s not strictly untrue; what was said? Anyway, on with the witch-hunt!

    Not Mexicans, Mexico simply didn’t exist, which was the point he was making about America. I have a tiny bit of Native American blood, but I’m American, he was saying America didn’t exist and I’m saying Mexico didn’t exist until after America. You just can’t say Mexicans were here before Americans, that’s just fucking absurd.

    The main thing that got me was how he managed to say both of those in about one minute. It would be different if it was just a slip but he intentionally said Mexicans (and the audience he was pandering to applauded) then he leaves out parts of the Constitution, which he’s supposedly an expert in. It was just a sickening display of him showing his true sentiments and willingness to set reality aside to cater to them.

    Gotta say, I’d not seen this one. I’m really looking forward to 2012. We’ll kick this idiot out.
