Martin Luther King vs. Barack Obama: A True Leader and a Lackey for the Establishment

I don't agree with all of Dr. Martin Luther King's views, but many of them I do agree with, and the great part of his struggle for human equality before the law and against the exploitation of the weak by the powerful- that struggle resounds in my heart.

By contrast, our sitting President is an impotent lackey for the corrupt establishment's continuing exploitation of the weak and poor. To those of you who think Mr. Obama is a great leader and speaker, I submit to you that this is a tired old bromide and I will lay it to rest with the following comparisons between Mr. Obama and Dr. Martin Luther King.

Martin Luther King: A great orator...

Barack Obama: Not so great...
