    Members of Congress on Monday called on President Obama to issue a public correction after he incorrectly labeled E pluribus unum the U.S.'s motto in a speech last month, rather than "In God We Trust."

    The lawmakers, members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, also said the president was making "a pattern" of dropping the word "Creator" when he recites the self-evident truths of the Declaration of Independence.

    Some would say his stupidity is intentional but I swear to God he said he was a Christian. Didn't he?

    "E pluribus unum" is an unofficial motto of the U.S. and has been on the national seal since the late 18th century.

    "In God We Trust" was made the official motto of the U.S. in the 1950's. Whoopie

    We have a multiple trillion dollar deficit and record unemployment.

    And this is what members of Congress are focusing on. :cuckoo:

    I think the meat of this is with his pattern of disrespecting our national heritage. It's more than just a gaffe.

    Good lord, they seriously want him to take the time to corrct that?

    His intentionally leaving out all reference to god is part and parcel of progressivism. If he did mention the creator, he would lose more of the left.

    We need congress spending more time on cutting the budget than going over every gad damn word big 0 says.

    How's this for a motto;

    The Bank of the American Tax Payer is closed, all you other countries, it's time to take care of your own. We are just over 225 years old and we got it right, you have had thousancds of years to do so. So fix your own crap hole country or starve.

    Why do idiots like you keep insisting that Obama is a muslim?

    He has stated emphatically that he is a Christian.

    I wish that he was a muslim.

    But unfortunately he is not. :frown:
