Obama: Iím being vilified just like MLK, Jr.
Legal Insurrection ^ | August 13, 2011 | William Jacobson

Posted on 08/13/2011 9:19:44 AM PDT by bkopto

At a fundraiser in New York, Obama likened his efforts to reform government to those of Andrew Cuomo, but then Obama also compared what he was going through to the trials and tribulations of Martin Luther King, Jr. (via Sam Foster):

Before leaving, Obama likened himself to one more figure. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“I think that we forget when he was alive there was nobody who was more vilified, nobody who was more controversial, nobody who was more despairing at times,” he said.

Truly a man-child. Obama is his own worst enemy. In his blinkered world, his ideology stubbornly trumps reality, and all adverse consequences result.

Obama is flummoxed by all that is going wrong, nationally, financially, politically, and internationally. Things going south never happened before (in his affirmative action bubble), so why is it all happening now?

The whole world would be better off if he just fetching Bill Clinton's coffee.

MLK was vilified by a jail and eventually a bullet. Obama has it easy because of MLK. Unfortunately, he’s using his opportunity to destroy the country.

Now he’s smearing MLK. He’s more like Malcom X (his daddy).

Vilified? Excuse me, but the news this week is touting yet another memorial built for MLK. He has more schools and streets named after him than all the founding fathers and other historical figures put together.

You know, when they see that barry is unable to destroy this country enough, I could see his handlers (Soros, et al.) offing barry in order to ignite a race war in this country. If the flash mobs don’t do it.

This guy’s narcissism is positively scary. He has lived in such an insulated world his whole life. He’s had the same Marxist world view his entire adult life and had NEVER held a job where he was accountable for any results. He’s never had to accept blame for anything, and at this point he NEVER will. God help us if this guy is re-elected.

MLK Jr. and MLK Sr. were both Republicans.

Although MLK was no saint, he stood head and shoulders above Obama as a real leader for ALL Americans.

No comparison between the two. For Obama to now pull the race card is beneath contempt. And hardly “presidential”.

I am surprised he set his sights so low.

I was SURE he was going to say something like:

“I am being persecuted much like the way they persecuted Jesus.”

Narcissistic little twerp.

Every single time I think this monumental retard couldn’t possibly say anything dumber, he hits one out of the park.

he still compares himself to the greats of history.

He is a legend in his own mind. He has the libtard "just don't get it" mentality. He doesn't get it that his libtard ideas suck.

Obama, in case there was any question, is the most insane person ever to seize the Presidency.

Barack, don’t sully the name of a great American by associating your attempts to destroy this country, with the trials MLK went through.

YOU are in the White House and have mistaken whining for leading!
