at least Dr. King didn't backtrack on everything he said and stood his ground. obama tucks his tail between his legs everytime he makes a statement like the coward he is.

All I can say is that Dr. King didn't need a teleprompter and got it right every time. Obama? He uses a teleprompter and still has to backtrack on what he says.

I admire some of his methods, goals and courage.

Obviously I don't agree w/ socialist ideals. Still, taken in context things were far bleaker back then and I can understand his thinking.

I did not say he was Rep.I did not think he was a politician at all, but he fought mostly dems in the south - a fact that dems today seem to have stricken from history.

Facts/truth: an anti-liberal smear campaign.

>>Libs have selective amnesia.

Seems Cons do too. Weird that you didn't bother to correct your friend on the outright falsehood of his argument.
Weird that one of the biggest opponents of the Civil Rights Act switched to the Republican party shortly after his Democratic fellows had become estranged with him after his generally ill-mannered behavior with regards to opposing civil rights. Oh, and that same guy; huge racist and all that? Respected Republican senator 'till a couple months before he died. Funny world!

Listen, he certainly wasn't a dem as those were the folks in white lynching blacks.

You do the math.

Libs cling to minutia, hold all conservs to the letter of the law while they ignore the word, ..no page, chapter, book of law.

Minutia? Like "republicans embraced a bitter racist for decades"? How is that minutia?

Why is it that these "folks in white" were trotted out of Congress rather hastily, and yet he stayed on for his entire life?

Also, segregation vs. non segregation was not a lib vs. con thing. You forget various Presidential supporters of civil rights, Truman, Kennedy and Johnson. (As opposed to Eisenhower, that Republican who supported segregation.)

Not all Republicans were segregationists, nor were all Democrats. If you pick and choose statistics, you can find trends leaning both ways.

Sorry to interupt but, you think Eisenhower supported segregation? He supported the Civil Rights Act of 1957, democrats didn't so the final product was weaker than his Attorney General (who wrote the bill) had first produced it. Here's the website you can read it at:

If that's not socialism/redistributing the wealth, I don't know what is.

Facts: They're AWESOME.

Luther. A republican. Next you're going to tell me that the Pope is secretly Mormon.

Thing that made King a great man was he wasn't concerned really with parties or politics. He was taking about universal human truths. Kind of like the people that founded this country. He didn't care which party made it happen or who supported him. Just that freedom and liberty for all went forward, true freedom. He was looking to remove government regulation, discrimination, and institutionalized tyranny (there's no difference between black people and white people unless the government says so, if it does not say so, then there are just people). He did not want to reduce someone else's freedom in order to elevate his own. IMO he was one of the founders that came to the party late.

THAT is why King was a great man and why his eyes were wide open.
Unfortunately what King saw, what he wanted is not what we received.

I'm friggin' sprry to burst your bubble, but he was not a republican. He wasn't a democrat, but he wasn't a Republican either.
I mean, in theory he might have rather had Republican governors or mayors running in the Southern states, because at the time that party was associated with pro segregation in that area.
But across regions, states, and levels of government, from the prez to a school board...person what identified someone as Democrat or Republican varied widely in King Jr's time.
Democrats did conservative things. Republicans did liberal things. And anyway he's very much proven to be a plagiarist and adulterer.

But Obama's worse, of course, since he's a politician. The difference between between politicians and other types of leaders is that politicians get exact paychecks and that they depend on upwards of millions of dollars civilian campaign donations as their last step in getting elected. It's hard to romanticize that aspect of a public servant, even if that public servant is running the country.
