Leave it to Obama to give the least patriotic July 4th speech possible.
For those of you who
suffered through listened to Obama’s fourth of July speech yesterday probably noticed that there was something missing from his speech. In celebrating the Declaration of Independence, which grants us a god given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, you’d think he’d give at least some sort of reference to God, even if he didn’t specify a religion.
But alas, that wasn’t the case. BizPacReview reports:
It missed the part at the very end, when most presidents — including the current one — say something like “May God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.”
In fact, he didn’t mention God at all.
Instead, he said, “Thanks, everybody. From my family to yours, have a safe and happy Fourth of July.”
He may as well have said, “Tell all your friends you love Obamacare.”
He did remember to thank our country’s heroes in uniform, and he made reference to the proclamation by Founding Father (except he calls them “Founding patriots”) “that all of us are created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights including the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
“Creator” is good, but doesn’t he want God to bless our nation?
I’m beginning to think he does things like this just to tick people off.
Others on social media thought so too, with one user describing the president as “the Godless little man.”

One of Ronald Reagan’s Independence Day speeches, by contrast, was titled “One Nation Under God.”
Remember what it was like to have a President who actually cared about America? Like most of you, I’m counting down the days until he’s out of office.
