No one should “read anything into” the fact that President Barack Obama repeatedly left out the word “Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence, nor should they read anything into the fact that he began using the word after the White House was questioned about the omission, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday.
Gibbs did not say whether press reports about the omission prompted Obama to start using the term.
The Declaration of Independence says “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.”
In four speeches on Friday, Saturday and Monday, Obama used the word “Creator.” CNSNews.com, Fox News and other media outlets had reported on Obama’s numerous omissions, including two last week.
