President Obama Omits “Under God” in Gettysburg Address [VIDEO]
It's one of the most quoted speech in American history. The Gettysburg Address, written and delivered by President Abraham Lincoln at the Soldier's National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on November 19, 1863. It takes a little over two minutes to read the ten short sentences that sum up the and redefine the Civil War. President Obama video taped a recitation of the address, but omitted "under God" in his reading, setting off a firestorm of criticism! In all fairness, there are 5 hand written copies of the speech, some mentioning "under God" and others not including it. But if "under God" appears on so many American symbols and money, why would President Obama elect the version omitting the words? It's not surprising, but it is sad.
