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.”
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.

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.”
