God has truly blessed America with an ugly statue. MLK was a very good looking republican man. That statue looks nothing like him and it makes him look twice as fat as he was. I guess in China, being fat is a sign of success or something. We should have gotten some talented black guys to make it instead of a Chinese guy. What a shame. It's marred from the start.

The statue makes MLK look a lot older than he was when he was cut down. I guess the Chinese guy that carved it thinks that by making him look old, it makes him look wiser or something. And that stern look! MLK never ever looked like that. He was one of the most forgiving and kind men that ever lived. The statue does not befit a man of MLK's stature. Big is not always better. Blacks should have done it themselves as a befitting gesture to one of America's greatest modern heros. The Chinese guy goofed it all up and cheapened it. That's what I think, anyway..

Americans must listen and watch very carefully to the words of Obama with this speech. If he features biblical references run, and run as fast as possible from this pseudo personality. His words are meant to deceive. He is attempting to equate himself with a great African American and gather followers for his new assult on American liberties.

How is it, that anyone of importance . That tries to do good things for America and the American people end up getting shot . While terrorist's are allowed to buy their way into the Presidency of the United States of America to destroy our country, with out a shot being fired ?

How ?

I watched and listened during many of the speeches. I was profoundly disappointed that most who spoke spent much of their time talking about OWS, social justice, economic justice and generally being divisive in their tone, including BHO.

It was much less a dedication than a rally and they should all be ashamed for spotlighting themselves, rather than honoring MLK.
