Barack Obama: The new Joe Biden

No, not from any policy similarities, but for plagiarizing someone else's speech. Check it out -- view Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick’s 2006 “Just Words” speech from October 2006, and then what Barack Obama has to say in his recent (Feb. 16) Wisconsin speech:

The British Labour Party's Neil Kinnock was quoted as saying, "I had nothing to do with this."

Our own Joe Biden reacted thusly: "I warned 'im!"

Deval Patrick delivered his speech much better. It seemed like Obama didn't want to give an enthusiastic speech lest it remind people of the Governor's speech. Also he changed the chronology of the quotes, making it less effective and hoping that people wouldn't connect the two.

I find it funny though that he would make this speech, considering that the quotes he uses actually mean something, whereas his speeches mean nothing.
