WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama saluted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Sunday as a man who stirred our conscience and made the Union more perfect, rejoicing in the dedication of a monument memorializing the slain civil rights leaders life and work.
I know we will overcome, Obama proclaimed, standing the 30-foot granite monument to King on the National Mall. I know this, the president said, because of the man towering over us.
The dedication has special meaning for the Obamas. The president credits King with paving his way to the White House. Before his remarks, he left signed copies of his inaugural speech and 2008 convention address in a time capsule at the monument site. The first couple and daughters Malia and Sasha made a more private visit to the site on Friday night, before the crowds and the cameras arrived.
In his talk, he focused on Kings broad themes equality, justice and peaceful resistance as the nation confronts, 48 years later, some of the same issues of war, an economic crisis and a lingering distrust of government in some quarters.

Well, I’m sure archeologists from the future will need toilet paper.
A communist leaving some of his scribblings under a statue made by commies in China.The whole thing makes me ill.
MLK is rolling over in his grave.
Definition of narcissism
Something for the great grandkids to sell.
Obama’s desecration of the memorial.
Something for the great grandkids to sell.
Only slightly less self aggrandizing as giving the Queen of England an iPod filled with your speeches.
Why doesn’t Nobama mention that because of Democrats, King had to hold marches and protests? That 80% of Republicans voted for the Civil rights act as compared to 60% of Democrats? Because as we know, Democrats are here to protect blacks from evil Republicans like Ronald Reagan who made MLKs birthday a National holiday.
Whaaaa? Did the Queen of England return her iPod?
Who is 'we' and what will be overcome?
The only redeeming feature of this is that in fifty
years, the children of the OWS will be spraying
graffitti on it and protesting for the same thing
as their parents.
What, no movie DVDs?
Ok, but why is MLK’s statue white?
He buried a teleprompter??
Also... I believe MLK was a Republican. Wonder if anyone mentioned that today?
Why does he also look like Mao??????????
Some dogs gotta poop in every yard.
Seeing the monument on the news, they did make MLK look strangely like Mao.
The toilet paper dispenser in the nearby porta-potty would be a much better place for Hussein to leave his dribble. In fact he should serve out the rest of his term from there.

Too bad Michelle didn’t leave one of her boob belts in there. It would be nice to think the FReepers of the future could share a laugh with us.
Locking up and burying his “speeches” is a nice touch but the “I (Heart) Me” stickers applied to them was a bit much.
I don’t see why people have a problem with obama burying his speeches there. Burying trash releases less carbon dioxide than burning it.
How about Stalin, Lenin, Churchill, Reagan, Kennedy? (I chose the political spectrum to point out Obama is truly nuts.)
Obama, you are definitely one for the books. And NOT in a good way?
Obama is not fit to tie MLK’s shoes! His “oratory” is nowhere fit to be compared to MLKs. What an arrogant piece of work!
First of all, he has no basis of comparison of his background to MLK. Obama is 1/2 white and 1/2 African (if you can believe him.) He is no half African-American. He has no Souther African American culture to share with MLK.
Because that is going to be Cain's crowning unity speech when he accepts the nomination.
Maybe because there are no native blacks in China?
A Wilson-brand golf ball, of course, as in Woodrow Wilson, one of the premier fascist/socialist presidents in the past century of our country's history.
To be succeeded and surpassed shortly by Barack Hussein Obama, a ditto of Wilson and a ditto destroyer of our Constitution.
I hope the author signed them too.
I watched the dedication on Fox. I thought it was a disgrace and an insult to much what MLK stood for during his short life.
The Arrogant Bastard Obama gave a campaign speech, occasionally trying to sound Black.... it was sickening.
If I were Black, I would be proud of MLK’s civil rights accomplishments, but Flim Flam Man Obama, not a true Black man, would be one of my greatest embarrassments.
This dedication SHOULD have been about MLK, his accomplishments in the civil rights movement of his time, NOT anther self promoting batch of lies for Obama’s political and country destroying purposes.
Today, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. should have been rolling over in his grave.
This guy is unreal.
“he left signed copies of his inaugural speech and 2008 convention address in a time capsule at the monument site.”
Along with his college records, social security cards and his birth certificate.
Obama made the MLK memorial all about himself and his campaign for reelection..
LOL. You left out, “Uh.” About thirty times interspersed in your speech.
Other things that need to go into the time capsule: A copy of every picture taken of HIM; a mural size copy of HIS picture staring at HIMSELF in the mirror; one of HIS empty suits; a sweaty T-shirt HE wore while playing basketball in HIS gym; a picture of HIS new jet; a picture of HIS new limo; the last bite of one of HIS ice cream cones; HIS golf calendar; HIS totally redacted visitors log; the empty hard drive where HIS incriminating emails used to reside; a copy of HIS broken campaign promises snuck in by one of HIS many enemies. I want to continue, but I have things to do.
Did they stuff a teleprompter in there?
He should have thrown himself in there too.
This morning Fox & Friends had that creep Andrew Young on to talk about MLK. He said that MLK teachings mirrored those of the Wall Street protestors.
Nobody challenged how ludicrous that statement was.
Hope he didn’t forget to include the TelePrompter!
I doubt it. Martin was a Commie too.
Who signed them?
I don’t think he’d give up the almighty teleprompter. No way, no how!
To my knowledge, Obama did. But he probably used an autopen to do so!
