Obama’s ignorance on display again 75

 Example, with comment from Power Line:


I remember, when living for four years in Indonesia as a child, I listened to my mother reading me the first lines of the Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they’re endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

I would have thought that pretty much everyone–certainly every Presidential speechwriter, and every Harvard Law School graduate!–knows that these are not the "first lines" of the Declaration, which begins, "When in the course of human events…." What, exactly, accounts for the fact that Obama is not a laughingstock?
