Just a humble sort of guy … for a messiah

Before the speech

BARACK Obama is preparing to make a crucial address to a huge audience in an echo of Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech.

Forty-five years to the day after the civil rights icon spelled out an electrifying vision of racial equality, Obama will claim his prize as the first-ever black presidential nominee of a major US political party.

On that day, Luther-King spoke the spine-tingling words that still remain one of the greatest speeches of all time:

“I have a dream that one day, this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal,’ ” he said forty years ago.

Yeah there’s just one thing. Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican
Why is this never mentioned? It’s almost like the Democrats and the media are trying to rewrite history. Or something.

Obama limbered up his big day with a game of pickup basketball at a Denver gym, following his tradition of shooting hoops on red letter political days.

Later, he dropped in on a lunch of women from his Illinois delegation, telling them he had not forgotten his roots.

“I have a speech tonight. I wanted to practice it out on you guys,” Obama said, as the women cheered. “See if it works.”

Oh Puleeze!!!

Already running the most presumptuous campaign for President ever, complete with a chair on his private airplane labeled “President,” Republicans assumed Obama, due to his Messiah Complex, was going to announce in front of a Greek temple.

As the stage was finalized, it has become very clear it is not a Greek temple. It is the White House.

Update;

As Obama was speaking of “the promise of America” and referencing a “fundamental belief,” he uttered a line that should strike everyone as a really funny thing for him to say: “I am my brother’s keeper.”

He actually said that — and none of them laughed.

This man whose income last year exceeded $4 million and whose passion is to lecture the rest of us about compassion and helping the poor has a half-brother named George Hussein Anyango Obama who is living in a dilapidated hut in a slum on the outskirts of Nairobi on less than twelve dollars a year. He receives no help from brother Barack. Obama’s parting with some of his own change is not change his brother can depend on.

Yet he stands before thousand in a stadium, addressing millions on television. and he says: “I am my brother’s keeper.”

    Here is true history a woman for Vice President of the mightiest country in the world.

    My Friends,

    I am honored to announce that I have chosen Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska as my choice for the Republican nominee for Vice President. As a father with three daughters, I can’t express how proud I am to choose the first female Republican Vice-Presidential nominee.

    Sarah Palin is a trailblazer and a reformer. As the first female governor of Alaska, she challenged a corrupt system and has been a tireless advocate for reform – passing a landmark bill on ethics reform. She has taken on the old politics in Alaska and reformed the state’s energy industry. She rejects wasteful pork barrel spending. She’s fearless – exactly the type of leader I want at my side and the type of leadership we will bring to Washington.

    My friends, together Sarah Palin and I make the strongest presidential ticket and I know that she joins me in asking for your support as we head into our Convention week in Minnesota. We’re shaking things up in this campaign – and Governor Palin and I are ready to bring real reform to Washington.

    The polls indicate this will be a tight race as we head into the fall campaign against Senators Obama and Biden. I expect the polls to remain close all the way up to Election Day and that is why any help you can give today will go a long way to make history on November 4th.

    You may already know that I have decided to accept federal matching funds for the final months of this campaign- keeping a campaign promise I made.

    You can be assured that as President and Vice President, Governor Palin and I will always put country before all else. We are ready to lead and I ask that you join our campaign today. Your support is deeply appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    John McCain

  • I’m just about to post something about Sarah Palin. I admit I hadn’t heard of her before today, but I like what I’ve been reading.

  • Ginger:

    Here are some very factual clips and lots of laughs from John McCain’s site.

  • Thanks Ginger, That was good. I especially liked the bit where Hillary Clinton says, Senator McCain will bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign, I will bring a lifetime of experience and Senator Obama will bring a speech that he gave in 2002.

  • Ginger:

    McCain has used their own words against them to perfection. They cannot put any spin on the adds without making fools (liars) of themselves.
