As I told you before, Obama’s already ripped off speeches from the script of the movie, “Malcolm X.” Now this.

You do realize that the premise of this video is that Smits’ character was based on Obama, not the other way around.

Never thought I’d see left-wing propaganda on this website.

Here’s the interview…

Osama Obama’s entire platform is “Change”…
In other words, change a few lines from someone else’s speech…
Simply pathetic – He wouldn’t know a fresh idea if it bit him on hajib.

Obama! Not a oringinal word out of his mouth. Cut and paste speeches………..
But has he ever really done? What are his accomplishments?? Name one? Atleast McCain really gave his life in military service, was POW, and lived to tell about it. Obama! Served in what???
