Yo Obama, You FREAK, As President You Really Should Learn What Our National Motto Is!!

Our National motto is “In God We Trust,” and NOT “E pluribus unum” (Latin for “out of many, one”).

The video shows you what NOT to do. While giving a speech in Indonesia, Obama compares what he believes OUR motto is with Indonesia’s, drawing a bogus line of similarity.

Lawmakers school Obama on national motto

One News Now

A letter signed by 42 members of Congress criticizes President Barack Obama for telling students in Indonesia last month that America's national motto is "E Pluribus Unum."

Obama commented to the students last month that the U.S. and Indonesia share a similar history. "It is a story written into our national mottos. In the United States, our motto is 'E Pluribus Unum' -- out of many, one."

In a letter to the White House, members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus -- mostly Republican -- note that the national motto has been "In God We Trust" since 1956.

The caucus chairman, Congressman Randy Forbes (R-Virginia), says "In God We Trust" is too important to be forgotten. He says he and his fellow congressmen want to "make sure that we stand by that proposition and don't retreat from it."

Forbes states: "For the President of the United States to incorrectly state something as foundational as our national motto in another country is unacceptable. The President is the primary representative of our nation to the world, and whether mistake or intention, his actions cast aside an integral part of American society. President Reagan once warned that 'If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.'"

According to Forbes, the letter signed by the lawmakers "simply asks the president to correct [his] statement and to make sure when he's giving speeches in the future that he gets that correct."

The White House had no immediate comment on the letter.

Wild Thing's comment........

E pluribus unum” appears on the Great Seal. It’s “From many, one” sentiment is secular enough. But flip the Seal over and the phrase “Annuit Coeptis” appears. It translates to “Heaven smiles on our endeavors.”

For a non-Christian nation accodring to Obama, God ( NOT Allah) keeps showing up EVERWHERE!

Mark, Nick didn't know either, I think most people think it is E pluribus unum. And that is OK , it is just that a president ought to know.

What gets me is they sent him a letter and there has been no response back from the WH or Obama.
