Former Bush Speechwriter:
Obama Plagiarized Bush´s 2007 SOTU speech

Breitbart.com, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:pucky1, 1/29/2014 6:41:38 AM

Following President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday, former George W. Bush speechwriter Mark Thiessen told Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly that Obama’s speech plagiarized lines from Bush’s 2007 speech, for which he said he was the lead speechwriter. “It was eerily familiar,” Thiessen said. “There were lines like, ‘Our job is to help Americans build a future of hope and opportunity. A future of hope and opportunity begins with a growing economy. A future of hope and opportunity requires our citizens have affordable and available health care.’

Comments:
A man without ideas goes from from blame Bush to co-op Bush in six short years.

Not surprising. BO is all smoke and mirrors. He´s a fake and can say anything without question, compliments of the MSM.

Not surprising, but how sad is it that you cannot distinguish the rhetoric of these two presidents.

This really needs greater media exposure.
It shows Obama to be the empty suit, void of new ideas, and wholly dishonest and disreputable that he is.

Barrack Obama giving a George Bush speech is the same thing as Richard Simmons giving Mel Gibson´s Braveheart speech - it just doesn´t work.

Can you copyright ´hope and opportunity´? Sounds like some of the platitudes gotheist ed, but the isn´t any discernable policy overlap between W and O.

I think Obama plagiarized Stalin near the close when he said something like, ´collectively we can stride forward as a nation for progress´. I mean, really, wasn´t that on a sixty foot high mural in some commie city?

You can tell he just read the words someone else gave him.. most were just that, words. Wait.. didnt he say just that in a speech once, something about "words, just words"?

such a fool. But what really galled me was using the trump card of the injured military for final applause. The man has no shame. He HATES the military and anyone watching last night knows it. Does he really think the lofos were watching HIM last night? LOL

The speech was as meaningless to him as it was to us. What really matters is that he just wants to buy time, fill the airwaves with white noise while he goes on with his real agenda, the one he can´t really talk about. And that is the agenda to take the USA down as far as he can - I suppose Soros is shorting the USA or something and besides Obama is programmed to follow his early teachings.

Like various people I know who think they know it all he really isn´t very smart.

MSM never made waves about his plagiarizing MLK´s "I have a dream" speech several years ago; why should this get any attention at all, either?

I´m generally disinclined from watching the hours-long SOTU production any year, as it has become an annual campaign speech. But with this POS POTUS I´m even less inclined than ever.

I believe that I am like millions of other Americans - I stopped watching Obama´s speeches years ago and if anything other than a short clip appears on a news program, I turn to another channel. I refuse to listen or watch him distort the truth, bend reality, or, bottom line, lie to us. In my opinion, his policies, and his person, are dangerous to our Democracy. As an example, his latest example, a $10.10 per hour minimum wage to all employees of Federal Contractors, is a gimmick that has no basis in reality. Furthermore, it cannot be verified, because thousands of companies have contracts of one sort or another. Does the Federal Government have the manpower to audit the books of a company that furnishes porta-potties to National Guard troops on their weekend drills, because that is exactly what it will take to fulfill this latest Obama idiotic plan. Lastly, what is the punishment for failing the minimum wage test ? We have a President that caters to low information voters and is repulsive to those of us who are rational and informed. ( Again, in my opinion ). The consequences of his policies either make no sense or are detrimental to our society.

The lines he stole from GW are probably considered the best lines on his SOTU from the Tinglemeisters.

#1: He stole Reagan´s speeches in this first inauguration speech, bungled JFK´s "I´m a jelly donut" speech. He stole Lincoln´s Gettysburg Address and nobody but a few actual conservatives noticed. Your point is invalid.

Obamacare Fixes Hide a
Big Mess on the Back End

This week, President Obama and his deputies kicked off a campaign to convince Americans to give Obamacare a second try now that the web site is operating. But according to health care policy experts, most of the fixes made to the site are purely cosmetic and hide a back end that remains broken. These experts said the problems might deprive people of insurance, despite consumers’ believing they had completed the transaction and purchased insurance through the exchange. They also warn that a key component of the site needed down the line has yet to be built.

On Sept. 5 Test of Obamacare´s Website,
Govt. Staffers ´Secretly Rooted For It To Fail´
Forbes Magazine, by Avik Roy    Original Article

We’ve known for at least nine months that Obamacare’s website could turn out to be a “third-world experience.” In recent weeks, we’ve learned that there hadn’t been an end-to-end test of whether Americans could enroll as late as September 26, five days before the October 1 launch. So the obvious question has been: if the administration knew the website wasn’t ready, why did they roll it out anyway? An explosive new report confirms that the decision was political. Some staffers were so desperate to persuade the President to change course that, during a September 5 demonstration of the

Obama's Rally For McAuliffe

On Sunday, President Obama will travel to Northern Virginia to campaign for Democrat Terry McAuliffe. The Commonwealth Attorney for Loudon County, however, notes that the appearance may be a conflict of interest, given the federal investigations surrounding McAuliffe´s business interests. "I’m amazed that President Obama will be campaigning for Mr. McAuliffe, both of whom have also been practicing attorneys," Commonwealth Attorney Jim Plowman said in an email. "It has been well publicized that Mr. McAuliffe and his business associates are currently embroiled in investigations by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Want to see your tax dollars promoting Islam and giving Muslims at an Islamic school in New York an opportunity to complain that other people don’t understand them, don’t respect them and discriminate against them in restaurants? Oh, and you’ll also learn that Islam gave women rights in the 7th century that women in the West had to live without until the 19th and 20th centuries.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov.

She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
