Obama Deletes Creator from Declaration - Again and Again

A few weeks ago I complained about the President improperly quoting the Declaration of Independence, mangling the passage "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights" by omitting reference to the Creator. I was willing to accept that perhaps the President had ad-libbed and muffed the quote. Indeed, that was what Robert Gibbs said. But Obama has managed to do it two more times. To quote Ian Fleming:
Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action.

    Were I a Vegas odds-maker, I could not even begin to lay odds on this.

    How about this: He's an American illiterate.

  2. And you guys think the birthers and Muslim accusers have no base. I have to tell you, the “Ian Flemming” proposed explanation whose status is still conjectural is gaining legs.

    If it quacks like a duck......

    Dean, why doesn't Occam's razor apply here?
