Reagan Repubs: Obama No MLK Jr.

In the latest newsletter of the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans, Jeff Ward, president of the Idaho Federation of Reagan Republcans, writes:

Last week, it was ironic that on the day set aside to honor a black man who lived and sacrificed for the civil rights of all Americans, the first black man to be President was inaugurated with an agenda that is a wholesale assault on the civil rights of all Americans. We celebrate Martin Luther King Day not only in tribute to Reverend King but to honor all those who lived and gave their lives that all Americans would know the God-given freedoms protected in the Bill of Rights.  Yet today those freedoms are endangered by the man who took office by while swearing to uphold our Constitution.

Question: Do you think President Barack Obama threatens our civil rights?
