Honestly... this is an example of US political madness which this forum is aptly entitled for. How many average US citizens would be able to cite those lines from the US constitution if they had to when they were giving it for a speech? I'd say that it's understandable to get it wrong if you haven't practiced the speech that many times. But that's my view anyhow.
But how many average americans were supposed to have studied and taught the US Constitution??
He taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago
I would have thought Obama would know it off by heart..

actually god did
god made those men and those ideals to write the constitution and the declaration of independence.
those pieces are paper were inspired with the belief in the divine.
but thats only if you believe in the divine if your not a believer then its just a couple of pieces of paper.
- Avoiding gaze
--> could be lying, or feeling guilty or uncomfortable about the subject discussed. If they are looking away after a long gaze, it could just mean they are "taking a rest", or distancing themselves from the subject.
- Gazing regularly
--> positive, inviting attitude - open to communicate with you
- Prolonged blinking (as if blinking in slow motion)
--> losing interest (or feeling very sleepy! )- often accompanied by a raised eyebrow. To maintain your influence, change the conversation quickly or ask a question to get them to refocus.
- Excessive blinking
--> showing romantic interest (if their pupil is dilated)
--> sign of stress
--> could be lying

Seems to me those at the WH think THEY have the right to give and take our rights,not the Creator.
Seems to me that the Constitution, not the Declaration OR any supernatural being is what established those rights. If they were established by a God wouldn't they be Universal? Why would man need to put something like the Constitution in place to preserve something given to us by a supernatural being? God didn't write the Constitution, man did.
As for Obama who knows why he left it out, maybe he, like many of us, sees how absurd it is in the 21st century to think that our rights came from some spooky invisible guy in the clouds.

i have no illusions bout the real history of this country but its a hell of alot better than any other country in this world.
its no suprise that people think this way the lives that todays generations of americans have it better than any other previous generation its also i fact that todays generation of americans havent even earned the right to complain it was given to them so why should you respect it or those who came before you.
something given has no value and its clearly obvious by posts such as that.
people whine and complain and moan about this and that that is what americans have become its a sad state of affairs.
