Herman Cain Criticizes Obama Over Failure To Mention God In Speeches (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:
HERMAN CAIN DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

Herman Cain, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza who has been making buzz as a potential Republican presidential candidate, said on Friday that President Obama was deliberately omitting mention of God during his public speeches.

In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Cain described his concern.

"I have been able to get the pulse of the American people of not only what's in their head but what's in their heart. What's in their heart is they love this country. They love the values upon which this country was founded and they don't like it when the President omits 'endowed by their creator' from reciting the Declaration of Independence," Cain said.

Cain continued: "I believe it was intentional because he's done it three times, two of which I know about and a friend of mine actually knows of a third time. Now with all of his Teleprompters how could you not put that in there? No. I believe it was intentional."

The potential Obama challenger then went on to outline what he saw as another instance of the president ignoring the nation's alleged Judeo-Christian roots.

"Here's another example: when he first became President and he went to Turkey to give a speech and declared that we were not a Christian nation," Cain said. "Well I got news for the President. We are a Judeo-Christian nation and a lot of people want to keep it that way."

Members of the House Prayer Caucus tackled a similar issue at the end of last year, when they penned a letter to Obama accusing him of failing to mention in a speech that the source of "inalienable rights" given in the Declaration of Independence is a "Creator." The signees of that letter also criticized Obama for not making more frequent mention of God during his public addresses.
