I compared both speeches, and there is no lines that are this close.
Same themes, but not surprising...what politician doesn’t talk about hope and opportunity, but hope was only once in Obama’s speech and nothing like the alleged plagiarized text.
Sorry, but this time we shouldn’t run with this nonsense.
Did you try a word search:
Our job is to help Americans build a future of hope and opportunity. A future of hope and opportunity begins with a growing economy.” BO
“Our job is to make life better for our fellow Americans, and to help them build a future of hope and opportunity. And this is the business before us tonight.
A future of hope and opportunity begins with a growing economy, and that is what we have.”
GB State of the Union 2007, see http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/23/AR2007012301075.html for this and other quotes from Bush.
“A future of hope and opportunity requires our citizens have affordable and available health care. BO
“A future of hope and opportunity requires that all our citizens have affordable and available health care.” GB
Extending opportunity and hope depends on a stable supply of energy. BO
“Extending hope and opportunity depends on a stable supply of energy that keeps America’s economy running and America’s environment clean.” GB
Sorry - but this is not nonsense. Of course, Zero will blame his speechwriter (but not fire him or her) while claiming his simplified version was better.
