Barack Obama was speaking at the University of Indonesia in Jakarta and said, “It is a story written into our national mottos. In the United States, our motto is E pluribus unum — out of many, one.” Once again Obama’s teleprompters have failed him. It’s in fact not the US motto, but rather the motto of the great seal of the U.S. By law the motto of the United States of America is, “In God we Trust”. They are just different sides of the coin probably for most citizens, but you would hope our highly educated president would have known a little more history. Perhaps he thinks when you’ve made history there is no need to know history.
