Last April, at a campaign fundraiser at the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit, President Obama had a chance to sit and reflect inside the old Montgomery, Ala., bus on which Rosa Parks made history.
“I just sat in there for a moment and pondered the courage and tenacity that is part of our very recent history but is also part of that long line of folks who sometimes are nameless, oftentimes didn’t make the history books, but who constantly insisted on their dignity, their share of the American dream,” Obama told campaign donors.
ABC called this event a “personal moment for Obama.”
Riiiiiiiiiiight. Cuz “personal” moments are always photographed, yapped about to donors, reported on by national newscasters and then recycled months later to honor the oh-so-sensitive Barack Obama on the anniversary of someone else’s courage.
The White Hut recycled the “personal moment” photo yesterday, to “honor” Rosa Parks.
Betcha didn’t know Rosa Parks Day was All About Obama, did you?
