After candidate Obama won the Iowa Caucuses in 2008, he delivered the following lines as part of his victory speech:
tarted his apeech accordingly:
‘They said this day would never come. They said our sights were set too high. They said this country was too divided, too disillusioned to ever come together around a common purpose. But on this January night, at this defining moment in history, you have done what the cynics said we couldn’t do.’
The Iowa Caucus process ran its course in this past Tuesday and it seems the essence of Obama's victory speech found ghost legs via Marco Rubio. ghost legs via Marco Rubio.
Rubio started his speech this past Tuesday night after finishing third in the Iowa Caucuses as such:
‘So this is the moment they said would never happen. For months, for months they told us we had no chance. For months they told us because we offer too much optimism in a time of anger, we had no chance. For months they told us because we didn’t have the right endorsements or the right political connections, we had no chance. They told me that we have no chance because my hair wasn’t gray enough and my boots were too high.’
The likeness is far too consistent to be happenstance. Interestingly, Rubio finished third in Iowa; Obama won the state in 2008.
It seems Marco Rubio believes he is running against the nation's 44th President, Barack Obama, who is leaving office in January 2017. The unhappy (about his job) Republican Senator from Florida spends far more time on the campaign trail firing disparaging remarks towards Barack Obama, then his actual GOP opponents. His consistent anti-Obama remarks stand in deep contrast to the manner in which he started his speech above. Plagiarism involves a degree of nefarious admiration and denotes a wanton likeness of the victim from the plagiarizer.
Rubio's' Obama obsession didn't slow this past Tuesday. He took great exception to President Obama's visit to a Muslim Mosque and spoke in as bigoted a tone as any remarks from Donald Trump. He accused Obama of "Always pitting people against each other." The only "pitting" President Obama perpetrated against us (some of us) was his audacity in running for and winning the Oval Office.
Maybe, I touched on a strategy in the last statement. Rubio is probably channeling Trump to secure a few more votes in New Hampshire's Primary next Tuesday.
Crooks And Liars published a piece about Rubio's Obama fetish (my word) and the futility of his "pitting" argument.
Marco Rubio Shows His Stupidity By Slamming Something Obama Never Said
Marco Rubio could hardly wait for President Obama to finish his speech at a Maryland mosque before laying into him for something he never said. Young Marco rushed out in New Hampshire to slam President Obama before anyone else could, accusing the President of being divisive. "Always pitting people against each other. Always! Look at today:…
