Barack Obama (Pseudo-Historian)

"...that this nation, shall have a new birth of freedom."

- Part of Obama's reading of the Gettysburg Address for an upcoming documentary on the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's classic speech.

Seems pretty harmless, right?  It does if you're unfamiliar with the speech.

The actual words the Great Emancipator used were:  "...that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom."

For whatever reason, Obama chose to take a variation on the REAL speech.

There are multiple copies of the famous speech, and there is one in particular which doesn't have the words "under God" - the Nicolay Copy, believed to be Lincoln's original text...But when he actually gave the speech Lincoln absolutely included "under God."

Anyone care to speculate why Obama felt the need to go with an obscure text instead of the REAL speech?  Anyone care to give a reason why our current president thought it would be a good idea to change Lincoln's REAL speech to fit the way he thinks it should have been done?

I have no doubt about his reasoning.  It's the same reason he returned the 'Churchill Bust' to the Brits; the same reason he goes out of his way to humiliate our allies; the same reason he goes out of his way to pander to our enemies:  Barack Obama is embarrassed by the history of the United States...Over time, the people of the United States will feel the same way about Barack Obama - after suffering through the hardship his policies cause them and they have to repent for having elected him twice.
