They were invited at the last second.

Four or five weeks before an event? It takes much longer than that to get on busy people's schedules.

I bet the dems got a save-the-date way ahead of time.

All their presence would have done is provided targets for Obama and the rest of the rabid left to ridicule, lecture, and reprimand.

I wouldn’t have gone either, evenif invited a year in advance.

Why would I want to watch dishonorable people dishonor an honorable man?

Not that the republicans are honorable, because they are not.

This had to be a concerted effort by the pubbies - maybe they heard about some sort of plan to sabotage or attack them (politically) and wanted no part of it? I know, I know - these are eGOP we’re talking about here. So what’s the real reason?

Why is it so hard to stand against and speak against the big government interference and entitlements MLK stood for? The stuff MLK stood for has a lot to do with the continuation of dependency, poverty, and entitlement/dysfunctional thinking in the black community.

It is fine to "have a dream" but it is not fine to use government to force that dream on me. I do not have the right to interfere with another's life, freedom, and peaceable pursuits but I DO have the God-given right to discriminate and choose who I will and won't associate with, do business with, etc.

I would have gone. My speech would be short.

They would not have liked it.

The Rev. Leah D. Daughtry, who served as executive producer of the commemoration, told the Washington Post’s O’Keefe that her committee began inviting members of Congress to attend four or five weeks before the event.

Are you kidding me, Reverend?

What they fail to mention is, they were invited to attend, not speak

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA): According to the Grand Forks Herald, Cantor spent Wednesday touring oilfields in North Dakota with Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) and meeting with the North Dakota Petroleum Council lobbying group.

Seems Rep. Cantor was working at something more important than PROG political theatre that day.

It was a democrat event. It was designed to crown 0bama as the successor to Martin Luther King.

While MLK was not perfect (nobody is) he was a force for calling people to their consciences. Blacks did get a raw deal in the USA.

0bama is not a worthy successor to MLK.

The line-up of speakers made it clear it was a political rally for the Democrat Party - reminiscent of the Wellstone Funeral. The Republicans recognized the nature of the event and wisely stayed way and took away an opportunity of being called names and the left trying to ridicule them, IMO.

It’s not an MLK celebration as much as an attempt to make King Zero MLK’s heir apparent. Anyone participating will be assumed to be endorsing that.

McCain turned down a chance to be in front of the media/people? I have a hard time believing that.

John Fitzegerald Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy chose not to attend the 1963 March on Washington either. They tried to have the event canceled, then treated the whole thing like a siege while they managed it from the Justice Department.

There were an estimated 20,000 people at the event, so I guess about 60 million Democrats didn’t show up either.

They were invited at the last minute to stand around, but not to say anything.
