We were supposed to mark the 100th birthday of Civil Rights pioneer, Rosa Parks. But with the crippling cuts forced down our throats by those heartless, racist Republicans, her statue has been melted for scrap. Oh, the humanity!
U.S. President Barack Obama (2nd R) reaches out to touch the statue of Rosa Parks during its unveiling in the U.S. Capitol in Washington February 27, 2013. With Obama are Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (L), House Speaker John Boehner (2nd R) and House minority leader Nancy Pelosi.
Hint to Reuters: Both Obama and Boehner can’t both be 2nd R. Though I do confuse Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi all the time.
It’s good to know we have our priorities straight. We don’t have enough money to keep criminal aliens locked up, but we can hold bogus unveilings for late American heros (she died 7 1/2 years ago). I don’t dispute Parks deserves a statue; I do dispute the timing.
But then it just proves my point that everything Obama is doing is political, so I suppose I should welcome it.
But are you telling me this event cost nothing?
