Obama Plagiarizes . . . Again

By Debbie Schlussel
So, about an hour ago, President-elect Obama said a whole lotta nothin’ on the economy in what was billed as a major speech.
And he, um, borrowed pretty blatantly. Toward the end he said something about facing down “fear itself.”
Hmmm . . . what’s that I hear? The sound of the crypt-to-Office-of-the-President-Elect hotline ringing.
The remains of FDR called from down under. He wants his line back. When you borrow from a Prez who presided during the Great Depression, it’s as if you almost want it to be just like the Great Depression, all over again.

Just wait until he strikes a deal with Iran over their nukes (Which will either be worthless when it comes to substance, against American interests and/or one the Iranians will easily cheat on like the North Koreans did).
I can hear it now. “Trust but verify”.
Unfortunately Americans had no reason to trust this guy mostly because the media didn’t verify anything about him.

Seems BO has stolen much in his days, including the Presidency. We can only hope and pray that when he does meet with Ahmadinejad, that he CHANGEs his mind, by adding just one pre-condition … “Knock It Off or we’ll Knock You Out!”

Debbie : you are right on the money again !
But what too many Americans do not know is that
FDR inherited a depression and with his policies
( again stolen by Obama ) made it the Great Depression ! Many new books have been written on
this including ” The Forgotten Man “. Bottom line : The War ended FDR’s Depression ! We are
about to get the New Raw Deal ! We have nothing
to fear but Barack Obama himself !

Don’t worry about plagiarizing.
The Messiah can do anything, including walking on water.
But those who are building memorials and naming streets after him can’t wait at least when the president-select Brarack Hussein Obamba be sworn?
Even in sex there is foreplay!
They want to jump to orgasm by skipping the fun part.
I know, I know, Moses and Jesus weren’t half-whites and didn’t have an Islamic middle name. Poor guys!
Thank you for reminding me about Hussein’s credentials.
It must feel like having sex with 72,000 Virgins, being Hussein Obamba.

How is this plagiarizing? You Can’t reference a famous line in a speech? He didn’t say- “in my words______”.

The quote in question: “More than any program or policy, it is this spirit that will enable us to confront this challenge with the same spirit that has led previous generations to face down war, depression, and fear itself.”
He’s referencing the FDR quote, not plagiarizing it. And there’s honestly no way to think otherwise unless you’re being intentionally obstinate.

I am telling you the bitch is the Anti-Christ. She is the shinning example of what has gone wrong with our goverment. I would not let her work a kool-aid stand. What we should do is annex California to Mexico and put up a wall!

yesterday’s Washington Times had an article which said, “the publishers say “the echoes of FDR’s own words can be detected in many of President-elect Obama’s recent speeches and actions.” Read the article.

Considering how agonizingly long the campaign season was, I keep thinking that Obama’s term is almost half-over. Only to realize, we haven’t even started with this guy yet and I am already fatigued by it all.

So mentally exhausted with this Con-Man. Famous “Just words,” speech to Hillary comes to mind. The masses wanted a Con-Man and got a Con-Man. We can yell, scream and moan but I think his garbage will go through Congress like a hot knife through buttah. Senate Republicans have no juice to stop him. With only 41 seats senators like Mel Martinez, Olympia Snowe, or McCain will break the filibusters. Short of taking up arms, we should just watch (Popcorn please), the rapid collapse of the dollar as COBRAMA, Bernanke, and Volcker scream “Print, Baby, Print, more Dollah Bills.” Pssst….China doesn’t want to buy more of our debt. Tic, toc, tic, toc….

OBAMA The American Idol ! A POST TURTLE !
Look at the Facts in the real world ;
You couldn’t get a job at McDonald’s and become district manager after 143 days of experience.
You couldn’t become chief of surgery after 143 days of experience of being a surgeon.
You couldn’t get a job as a teacher and be the superintendent after 143 days of experience.
You couldn’t join the military and become a Colonel after a 143 days of experience.
You couldn’t get a job as a reporter and become the nightly news anchor after 143 days of experience.
‘From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to the time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory committee, he logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. That’s how many days the Senate was actually in session and working.
After 143 days of work experience, Obama believed he was ready to be Commander In Chief, Leader of the Free World …. 143 days.
We all have to start somewhere. The senate is a good start, but after 143 days, that’s all it is – a start.
AND, strangely, a large sector of the American public is okay with this and campaigned for him. We wouldn’t accept this in our own line of work, yet people are okay with this for the President of the United States of America?
THEY HAVE VOTED in the American Idol!
That is what the media has sold the Dummed DOWN American public and they have taken the bait, hook, line & sinker !
And while BHO, BHO was distracting everyone
Pelosi was busy destroying the Rules of the Senate !
Pelosi’s Power Grab: Her Plan to Shackle the GOP
Republican Rep. Roy Blunt said that rule changes pushed through the House on Tuesday by the Democratic majority leave ìthe deck stacked to shove a Speaker Pelosi agenda through the House.î
The former Minority Whip from Missouri also declared that the changes are an ìabsolute contradiction to everything Barack Obama saidî about nonpartisan politics during the campaign.
One change puts new restrictions on motions to ìrecommitî a bill to the committee that approved it in order to add new amendments.
The new rule allows the full House to reconsider a bill without delay, depriving the minority party of an opportunity to add its input on the proposed legislation.
ìThese changes that the majorityís made are truly going to have negative effects on moving a positive agenda forward,î Rep. Blunt said.

He’s also copying Bush II. It really gets me how they’re not calling these monstrosities ‘bailouts’ any more; they are now ‘stimulus’ plans. Just like ‘investments’ under the Clintons. Throwing good money after bad, and the Republicans are just aiding and abetting him. And some of the Republicans who supposedly are opposed aren’t really opposed; they’re just trying to make the record so they’ll get re-elected. Bad as the Senate has been over the years, now with hacks like Burris, Caroline Kennedy and Al Franken, 2 clowns and a bimbo, American politics has really sunk to a new low.
