Juan Williams Celebrates MLK and Disses Obama

Juan Williams has a nice piece on Martin Luther King's magnificience and Barack Obama's shortcomings.

Money Q:

When King spoke about the racist past, he gloried in black people beating the odds to win equal rights by arming "ourselves with dignity and self-respect." He expressed regret that some black leaders reveled in grievance, malice and self-indulgent anger in place of a focus on strong families, education and love of God. Even in the days before Congress passed civil rights laws, King spoke to black Americans about the pride that comes from "assuming primary responsibility" for achieving "first class citizenship."

While Obama...

... in a full political pander, is busy excusing Rev. Wright's racial attacks as the right of the Rev.-Wright generation of black Americans to define the nation's future by their past. He stretches compassion to the breaking point by equating his white grandmother's private concerns about black men on the street with Rev. Wright's public stirring of racial division.

Good and thoughtful stuff.

I like Juan Williams. He's slways right on the mark. If every Dem and black were like him we wouldn't have nearly the problems we do.

Wouldn't it be great if Juan were running on the Dem ticket rather than B. Hussein Osama?
