Obama and Vanilla Ice

Together At Last?

2/21/2008 3:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Barack Obama has been dogged with accusations that he's stealing stump speech material from Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, including his famous slogan "Yes, we can."

Several observers have pointed out that one of Obama's chief policy advisers used to work for Patrick, but as this hot-off-the-YouTube video suggests, maybe he's better off using a certain early '90s rap sensation -- if he really wants to convince the people that he's not a plagiarist.

I don't understand, the music is from David Bowie's Under Pressure.


Oh, and Barack Obama seems to be whiter than Vanilla Ice. Is Obama a real black or is it just make up?

I thought "yes we can" was Bob the Builder's line.

Huckbilly, that is the POINT. Back in the 90's, Vanilla Ice's biggest hit was a song which he pretty much copied from Bowie's 'Under Pressure'. Obama is being accused of copying Devil Patrick's election speeches. People, be warned!!! If you fall for Obama simply because of his stupid speeches you'll regret it! I know people here in Massachusetts do. Devil Patrick made all kinds of promises and said we should vote for change, and what did we get? NOTHING.

Forget Deval Patrick- They BOTH totally stole that line from Bob the Builder.

All Obama needs is a time out and a sippy cup full of apple juice.
