Bachmann embraces self-parody with letter about use of word “God”

No kidding, Bachmann and something called the Congressional Prayer Caucus have written a letter to the president addressing the most important issue of our time: whether he uses the word “God” enough in speeches.

The complaint came in the context of an address given by Obama on November 10th at the University of Indonesia in Jakarta, in which he remarked that the American “motto is E pluribus unum — out of many, one.”

The Congressional Prayer Caucus finds a factual inaccuracy with this statement, and believes that it could be a sign of a more telling problem.

“E pluribus unum is not our national motto. In 1956, Congress passed and President Eisenhower approved the law establishing ‘In God We Trust’ as the official national motto of the United States,” the letter reads. “[Y]ou mentioned being unified under one flag. The Pledge of Allegiance to our flag says that we are ‘one nation under God.'”

In neglecting to use the word “God,” they say Obama is “casting aside an integral part of American society.”

Meanwhile, Congressional Republicans have refused to actually pass legislation that might benefit the nation, until rich people get bigger tax cuts. Your tax dollars at work.
