WHY GOP HATE OBAMA YET THEY LIKE TO STEAL HIS SPEECH.
here is a wingnut Vaughn Ward, a Republican primary candidate for the 1st Congressional district seat in idaho, faces new plagiarism accusations.
Ward — endorsed by Sarah Palin at a Boise rally last Friday — is now accused of copying from a 2004 speech by President Barack Obama.
Here's a look at the statements made by Obama, in 2004, and Ward, earlier this year:
Obama: “... as we stand on the crossroads of history, we can make the right choices and meet the challenges that face us. America, tonight, if you feel the same energy that I do, if you feel the same urgency that I do, if you feel the same passion that I do, if you feel the same hopefulness that I do, if we do what we must do, then I have no doubt that all across the country, from Florida to Oregon, from Washington to Maine, the people will rise up in November, and John Kerry will be sworn in as president. And John Edwards will be sworn in as vice president. And this country will reclaim its promise. And out of this long political darkness a brighter day will come.
”Ward: “As we stand on the crossroads of history, I know we can make the right choices and meet the challenges that lay before us. If you feel the same urgency and the same passion that I do, and if we stand united and strong, then I have no doubt that our voices will be heard in November. Our country will reclaim its promise. A better day is on the horizon, and out of this darkness will come a stronger, more united nation. One that believes in personal responsibility, fiscal discipline, and limited government.
