Three New Examples!
UPDATE: I just found a third example:
April 21, 2011:
The America we know is great not just because of the height of our skyscrapers, not just because of the size of our GDP. It comes because we’ve been able to keep two ideas together at the same time. The first is, is that we’re all individuals endowed with certain inalienable rights and freedoms. We are self-reliant. We don’t expect others to do for us what we can do for ourselves, and we don’t like other people telling us what to do. That’s part of what it’s like to be an American. (Applause.)
The Blaze managed to catch Obama omitting the word “Creator” when referring to words from the Declaration of Independence yet again!!
As we’ve noted several times, Obama has a habit of leaving out “Creator” when he quotes the founding document (see here, here, and here). And he did it once again while speaking to supporters in San Francisco last night:
Obama had a problem with leaving out that phrase back in 2009 and 2010 but seemed to get with the program during the last couple of months in 2010. (He must have gotten the message around October 2010 because he used it over and over.)
Now it seems he’s back to his old behavior. I managed to find a second example from just this month at http://www.whitehouse.gov:
April 14, 2011:
It’s not the size of our skyscrapers. It’s not the size of our GDP. It’s the fact that we’re able to keep two ideas together at the same time: One, that we’re all individuals with — endowed with certain inalienable rights and liberties; and we’re self-reliant; and we’re entrepreneurs; and we don’t want folks telling us what to do. That’s part of — being an individual is so important to us. But we also have this idea that we’re all in this together; that we look out for one another; that I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sister’s keeper; that I want to make sure that child on the South Side or the West Side or out in Maywood or out in Dolton, that they’ve got the same opportunities that I’ve had. (Applause.) And that I’m looking after them, not out of charity, but because my life is richer, my life is better when the people around me are happy and the people around me have a shot at the American Dream.
Here’s the example that The Blaze found:

The first idea is that we are all individuals endowed with certain inalienable rights and liberties; that we are self-reliant; we are entrepreneurs. We don’t expect others to do for us what we can do for ourselves, and we don’t really like people telling us what to do. (Laughter.)
