President Barack Obama has visually pushed Rosa Parks off the anti-discrimination bus with a narcissistic Sunday tweet.
“In a single moment 58 years ago today, Rosa Parks helped change this country,” declared a 4:15 pm tweet from Obama’s Organizing for Action astroturf group.
The tweet included a photo of the first African American president of the United States sitting in the same bus and in the same seat from which Parks declined an order to move to the back of the bus during a protest in 1955.

There is a large number of photographs of Rosa Park that could have illustrated OFA’s tweet about Parks.
Observers quickly noted the image of Obama sitting in Parks’ place and replies criticizing the president poured in.
or are some of us just looking for something to complain about and taking the tweet out of context?
No, its because its Obama and we need something to be outraged about. Plain and simple.
