Michael Rakouskas Sr.: Not sharing ‘dream’?

Not sharing ‘dream’?

I found it embarrassing for a political party whose forebearers include Abraham Lincoln not to have had some degree of official participation in honoring the March on Washington and Martin Luther King Jr. during the recent events. Where were Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, George W. Bush or at least Speaker of the House John Boehner? It speaks volumes about the Republican Party.
