    Obama: I’m being vilified just like MLK, Jr.

    Obama: I’m being vilified just like MLK, Jr.

    James Taranto has a post The Great Deflation (via Instapundit) in which he writes that:

    Like a leaky balloon, Barack Obama keeps getting smaller.

    Taranto compares Obama’s lofty rhetoric during the 2008 campaign, when he grandly proclaimed that “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal” to Obama’s more recent whiny complaining.

    Obama may be shrinking, but everything is relative.  While Obama may no longer invoke messiah-like imagery, he still compares himself to the greats of history.

    At a fundraiser in New York, Obama likened his efforts to reform government to those of Andrew Cuomo, but then Obama also compared what he was going through to the trials and tribulations of Martin Luther King, Jr. (via Sam Foster):

    Before leaving, Obama likened himself to one more figure. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    “I think that we forget when he was alive there was nobody who was more vilified, nobody who was more controversial, nobody who was more despairing at times,” he said.

    Messiah to mere historic national hero.  Deflation indeed.

    […] “Obama: I’m being vilified just like MLK, Jr.” And yet until actively campaigning for the presidency, he didn’t mind associating himself […]

    You’re feckless.
    You’re dilatory.
    You’re Anti-American.
    You’re a partisan hack.
    You’re a puppet.

    I didn’t know MLK personally but I watched him and read about him.

    mr. Obama, you’re NOT MLK JR.

    Likewise here as well by veteran White House reporter, Keith Koffler:

    At least it wasn’t Jesus.

    At a small, exclusive New York City fundraiser Thursday night featuring the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, Obama compared himself and his agenda to that of Martin Luther King Jr.

    [partial transcript]

    Mr. Obama, I knew Martin Luther King. Martin Luther King was a friend of mine . . . “

    […] only has the US credit rating been downgraded, it would appear so has Barack Obama has been downgraded as well. Remember the BS spewed below during the 2008 campaign when the Obamamessiah proclaimed […]

    If MLK were alive he’ld punch the Comrade In Chief right in his face.
