President Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address on this day 150 years ago, on November 19, 1863. As a part of a project to mark the 150th anniversary, filmmaker Ken Burns recorded President Obama reading the Gettysburg Address and uploaded the video to Youtube.
Conservative internet news aggregator Weasel Zippers noticed that President Obama left out the words “under God” from the address.
So President Obama, who was sworn in with President Lincoln’s Bible, decided to drop God from President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.
This is the same President Obama who intervened directly to add God back into the Democratic Party platform last year, when Democrats voted to remove God.
President Obama didn’t even substitute “God” for “Love” – like Oregon state Rep. Carolyn Tomei did earlier this year with the Pledge of Allegiance. President Obama just dropped God altogether from President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.
UPDATE [from Breitbart.com]: “A text box now appears on the Ken Burns website www.learntheaddress.org which states: ‘Did you know there are five versions of the Gettysburg Address? We asked President Obama to read the first, the Nicolay Version.’ A cached version of the same webpage from several days ago shows no such reference.”
