Obama: My speech ‘won’t be as good’ as Dr. King’s
MSNBC ^ | August 28, 2013 | Morgan Whitaker

Posted on 08/28/2013 7:32:37 AM PDT by kevcol

“I think that Dr. King would be amazed in many ways about the progress that we’ve made,” he said.

“What he would also say, though, is that the March on Washington was about jobs and justice,” he added. “And that when it comes to the economy, when it comes to inequality, when it comes to wealth, when it comes to the challenges that inner cities experience, he would say that we have not made as much progress as the civil and social progress that we’ve made, and that it’s not enough just to have a black president.

As usual, Hussein thinks first and foremost of himself.

Sickening.

BS! The sun will stop in the sky, women will swoon, babies will stop crying, men will weep and at the end of the speech they will fall to their knees and give their souls to the ‘ONE”.

Thanks for lowering our expectations, Barry. In other news, Obama won’t be able to beat Lebron in a one-on-one game.

Oh, Dear Leader you are far too modest. We haven’t even heard it yet. Let us decide. BTW, MLK didn’t use a teleprompter.

Obama is where he is because he has Black skin.

His is the THINNEST skin to ever occupy the WH.

What a fool. It's not about the color of the president, it's about the content of his character.

Well Obambi did get one thing right...

...and that it’s not enough just to have a black president.

Lets face it. Nothing will ever be enough. We could have a Black president, a completely Black House and Senate, fifty Black governors, the top 250 cities with Black mayors and Black Police Chiefs, and it would never be enough.

If every student in our major universities were Black, and had been for twenty years, it would still not be enough.

If every Black family owned at lease one White slave, it would never be enough.

If the median income of Blacks was $250k per year, and the median income of Whites were $15,000 per year, it wouldn't be enough.

If the White populace dwindled to 11%, and Blacks made up 65 to 70% of our nation, it wouldn't be enough.

Nothing will ever be enough.

We owe them that much... in the dreams of enough of them to make it so.

It won’t be as good, for one simple reason:

Dr. King started from a moral basis, the basis that Mr. Obama abandoned long ago.

No morals, no true power.

No matter how many times you pay lip service to the truth.

Updated for use by 0bama:

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and will bash in the heads of the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. and get no approbation from the President or their community.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice EBT cards and bastard babies.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but and not by the content of their character.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers. and beat them to a pulp on school buses.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day every valley politician shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low exactly the same height by law, the rough places will be made plain like Detroit, and the crooked places will be made straight like Chicago, and the glory of the Lord The One shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.

Sons Of Barack's!

We can anticipate fairly certainly how the speech will go...

Good start Dr King, but we can do more.
We need to invest more money.
We need to give people more help.
We need to equalize more opportunities for the poor and the disenfranchised.
We need to invest more in education, especially for the poor.
We need to invest more in solid jobs with high wages.
We need to increase wages for the poor.

Bottom line, the speech will be about more more more socialism.

Of course Obqama’s speech won’t be as good as Dr.Kings.
Dr.King believed in what he was saying.

My guess is Obama will go heavy on that contrived Baptist-preacher inflection again today. No thanks.

The sad thing is, it doesn’t need to be that way. If enough Blacks were applying themselves all along, they could easily pick up the slack. It’s sad in a way that they down deep know what it takes, but don’t seem to do it.

Many do, but you get my drift I’m sure.
