Obama’s plagiarism was just merely inspiration


Funny isn’t it. Within an hour of Melanie Trump’s speech the media had determined that several paragraphs were the same as Mooch’s. It went on and on. This was a wife of a candidate that had created this mortal sin. But wind back not to a wife, but the Presidential candidate who plagiarized. The reaction? Not so much. Were we reminded of it? No. And so it goes.

When the Clinton campaign cried foul, The New York Times reported:

With the next round of voters set to weigh in on the Democratic presidential race, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign on Monday accused Senator Barack Obama of committing plagiarism in a weekend speech. Mr. Obama dismissed the charge as absurd and desperate.

Just Words. Just not Obama’s

    I remember this story getting a little bit of talk on talk radio but the MSM ignored it because of course they did not think it was a big deal. But now, watch out! Suddenly the MSM cares about stories like this and of course we know why.

    …and Moochelle lifted a speech from someone else, as did Laura Bush, Nancy Regan and so on…they all do, not that it lessens it…just saying…wish the liberal news would get over themselves. And personally, I wouldn’t even call it plagiarism, aren’t most people raised on morals and values, hard work ethics? Just saying…sigh…I have a feeling this is going to get really ugly come Nov. I have written many papers and had three big speeches the last 2 years in school and we are required to go thru a anti plagiarism website, and many times, those words morals, values and work ethics came in as plagiarized.

      There is really no need to copy word for word. And the mole inside the Trump writers group should be fired. No need to give the Dems excuses. IMO!

        yep, totally agree and I bet that person(s) have already been let go, smiles. I would like Melania to come back out and give a true speech spoken from her heart. Just to shut up the naysayers, smiles
