Obama Administration Explains Its Own "Plagiarism" Was Merely "Inspiration"
Obama Administration Explains Its Own "Plagiarism" Was Merely "Inspiration"

<p>With the 'p' word being lobbed around by Republican and Democrat today as <a href="http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-19/melania-trump-accused-plagiarising-convention-speech-michelle-obama">Melania</a> and <a href="http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-19/did-michelle-obama-also-borrow-her-2008-speech">Michelle </a>battled to the death over who is the plagiarizer-est, we are reminded that it <strong>wasn't too long ago that the media turned a blind eye when President Barack Obama was busted plagiarizing</strong> from Deval Patrick... and today The White House press secretary explained <strong><em>&quot;Obama didn't plagiarize... he was 'inspired by'&quot;</em></strong> the former Massachusetts Governor.</p>
<p><a href="http://m.hannity.com/articles/hanpr-election-493995/flashback-obama-was-busted-plagiarizing-governor-14922331/"><em>As Fox News' Hannity reminds</em></a>...</p>
<p><strong>In 2008, then-candidate Obama was found to have plagiarized the speeches of former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick on a number of occasions.</strong></p>
<blockquote><div class="quote_start"><div></div></div><div class="quote_end"><div></div></div><p><em><strong>&quot;I am not asking anyone to take a chance on me, I'm asking you to take a chance on your own aspirations,&quot;</strong></em> Patrick said in a speech delivered in June of 2006. Obama repeated the line&nbsp;verbatim in a speech in South Carolina in November of 2007.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>In addition, Obama's famous refrain of &quot;just words&quot; in a 2008 speech was lifted directly from a speech Governor Patrick delivered in October of 2006.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>When the Clinton campaign cried foul, <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/19/us/politics/19campaign.html?_r=0" target="_blank">The New York Times</a>&nbsp;reported:</p>
<p style="padding-left: 30px;">With the next round of voters set to weigh in on the Democratic presidential race, Senator Hillary Rodham <strong>Clinton&rsquo;s campaign on Monday accused Senator Barack Obama of committing plagiarism</strong> in a weekend speech. Mr. Obama dismissed the charge as absurd and desperate.</p>
<p style="padding-left: 30px;"><strong>Mr. Obama told reporters he should have credited Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, a friend, for a passage in a speech he delivered on Saturday in Milwaukee. But Mr. Obama said his rival was &quot;carrying it too far.&quot;</strong></p>
<p>While the Obama campaign might have been dismissive of the charges, <strong>the video evidence made it&nbsp;absolutely clear that the then-Illinois&nbsp;Senator did indeed lift passages directly from Governor Patrick.</strong> Take a look for yourself:</p>

<p>Perhaps the left should heed the advice that those in glass houses should refrain from throwing stones.</p>
<p><u><strong>But, it appears, given today's Melania-Michelle melee, the media is suddenly interested again... </strong></u></p>
<p>And White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained to the great unwashed and ignorant masses that <u><strong><em>&quot;the president was in fact inspired by Governor Patrick's words.&quot;</em></strong></u></p>
<p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/J60qDBRI6Ps" width="560"></iframe></p>
<p>In other words, when <em><strong>we</strong></em> do it, it's &quot;inspired thought,&quot; when <em><strong>you</strong></em> do it &quot;it's blatant plagiarism.&quot;</p>
