And Now For Your Opinion: Which Candidate Really Understands the Meaning of the Declaration?

 

Who really understands the meaning of the Declaration?

Barack Obama has misquoted it twice, even though he once suggested the Declaration’s Jeffersonian promises inspired him to act with “fierce urgency” as the president of the United States. Earlier this year, Mitt Romney suggested the Declaration (as well as the Constitution) are “either inspired by God or written by brilliant people or perhaps a combination of both,” an attitude consistent with Mormon theology but the last thing Jefferson would have considered the ultimate source of his ideas stated in his signature statement of American political and economic beliefs.

So, just what do these two guys who want to lead a nation based on the Declaration of Independence really know about its meaning? Who understands the Declaration’s real meaning the best? You, the reader of this blog, can cast your vote for the major party candidate who understands what America’s birth certificate is all about. All relevant comments are also welcome — but I suggest you keep comments about a certain president’s alleged lack of an authentic birth certificate to a minimum.

    I’m “voting” for Romney. No one could understand America less than Obama.
