    Sarah Palin-Backed Congressional Candidate Accused Of Plagiarizing Obama's 2004 Convention Speech

    Vaughn Ward, a GOP candidate for Idaho's First Congressional district, is facing charges that he swiped key passages from Barack Obama's iconic 2004 Democratic National Convention speech for his own campaign kickoff speech in January.

    The specific passages in question have since been spliced together by a Tea Party activist who asks, "Who Is Vaughn Ward Really?"

    And President Obama would be OUTWAGED

    if he was not himself fond of plagiarizing the words of OTHER candidates.

    What's a "nice try?" Accurately pointing out that President Obama did the same shit?

    You're right.

    That was a good try.

    Historically verifiable, too. EDIT: see: http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2008/02/obama-echoes-de.html

    Your OP is kinda like a report that some thief had his property stolen. :lol:

    well if the Obama didn't write it himself, it can't be plagiarized from him, now can it.
