"We are shaped by every culture, drawn from every end of the Earth, and dedicated to a simple concept: E Pluribus Unum: 'Out of many, one.'"
I don't think what he means by it is what it means.

Yawn...words, words, words.
Can't get the numbers right, referring yesterday to how we have as many Muslims as most Muslim countries ( SO wrong) so we could be considered a Muslim country ( though we can't be considered a Christian one, I recall)...
Can't get the translation right to the E pluribis unum of our country, meant for uniting many States under one Govt ( sorry, BHO, your lack of history showeth again, or are you actually telling the truth and saying you want one world govt..which you run, of course?)
Can't get the problems right (we never tortured under Bush..under FDR and Roosevelt, yes, ..under Bush, no) so you can' say "YOU" have ended all torture in the USA..was already done
Can't get the govts right..no BHO, all govts are NOT valid. Govts that massacre their gays and flog and stone their women are not govts I will acknowledge as valid.
Can't get the money right...no BHO, I will not support sending yet more money to the Middle East ..I know you think that they belong to our stimulus plan, given that at least 7 of them must have been part of the 57 States you visited on your campaign trail, but they do not get money just because you promise it..
As usual, the foreign press is getting it right, BHO can not deliver anything he said, and has only made it more dangerous to be an American through a nauseating amount of moral relativism. Ours will fawn over how wonderful BHO was to the Muslims ( having done nothing but deride Bush whenever he spoke and all the great things he said to the Muslim world..)
And, of course, quoting from the Koran by the USA President is now perfectly cool thing to do, but gosh when Bush quoted from the Bible ONCE, ( inapproprately I might add in my opinion), and not even during any kind of speech representing the USA, just during an interview, the press went insane. But now our POTUS can quote from the Koran in an official POTUS speech, and that will be fine with everyone.
Oh well, in the end, it was nothing but forked tongue words, meaningless, except for revealing to those who actually listen how many times he says "HE" will do this and "HE" will do that, as if he were a Chavez tyrant. And how many times it is suddenly acceptable to say OUT LOUD his middle name and where he spent his formative years and in what schools. ( The name and school that dared not be said during his campaign)
I sure hope America is paying attention to BHO yet again apologizing and groveling for the USA which was the leader of freeeing 60,000,000 more Muslims than were free 8 years ago, apologizing and groveling for a country that is the only one of two nations ( Israel being the other) to send the vast majority of Aid that the Palestinians get, apologizing and groveling for our country, which has brought more inventions and medicines which have improved lives all over the world than any other nation or even group of nations, ...the list goes on and on.
I am nauseated.
In the meantime, the dictators of the Middle East are delighted that there is obviously no longer someone in office on the side of their oppressed peoples, but on the side of the dictators.
Way to go BHO!
I can hear millions of oppressed and suffering people crying into their pillows tonight...waiting for the body parts of their dissident family members to arrive on their doorsteps with no impunity on the part of their govts. ANd there is nobody, anywhere, any more on their side. Former USSR citizens, hearing Reagan's speeches about being on THEIR side, grew hope and kept up the hard work of gaining freedom.
Guess BHO just set that back in the Middle East.
