Obama Express campaigns in Rockford...

The Obama Factor noted yesterday that the new U.S. Senator from Illinois still appears to be in campaign mode. Today completed the third rally/speaking engagement Obama has conducted in one week in outlying areas of Illinois.

The occassion today was to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr...

"Despite all our differences, we can come together as one people, I believe those things, you believe those things, in the end, that's Dr. King's greatest legacy." Obama connected that legacy to current events affecting all Americans, "I have to remind myself that we're in the mist of a war that Dr.
King probably would have objected to." Obama also put special attention on the young men of society. He reminded them that both Dr. King and Jesus Christ were very young when they had already accomplished so much: "He was at the peak of his powers at 32, 33. Someone else was also at the peak of his powers at 33. Young men!" Obama modernized Dr. Kings teachings. He says "its not about if you can eat at the lunch counter but if you've got a job, can afford the burger at the lunch counter."
Of course Senator Obama - neither Jesus nor Dr. King would embrace your position on Abortion or Gay Marriage - but go ahead and draw as many false analogies as you want...

During the Senate primary and during his race against Mr. Keyes, Sen. Obama *repeatedly* stated that he was for civil unions and not for gay marriage -- "but go ahead and draw as many false analogies as you want."

Great site by the way -- It's hilarious!
