On Tuesday we reported that radio talk show host Chris Plante discovered President Barack Obama had neglected to use the phrase "under God" when reciting the Gettysburg Address for a Ken Burns film project. The push-back on the story was nearly immediate with the White House claiming they rread an early draft of the address, which did not include mention of God, at Ken Burns' request. The Ken Burns website, learntheaddress.org, added a text box on their homepage claiming they had asked the president to read the "Nicolay Draft" of Lincoln's speech. Strangely, all of the living past-presidents as well as the Hollywood luminaries were asked to read the actual Gettysburg Address, not the "Nicolay Draft."
