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.

What some of you idiots may not realize is that Deval Patrick told Mr Obama to use his words/speech. End of story.

OMG PEOPLE PLEASE LETS B REALISTIC......... OBAMA ROCKS HE MAY NOT B PERFECT BUT HE IS CERTAINLY B A BETTER CHOICE THAN HILARY. SHE IS SO PREDICTABLE AND HER WHOLE CAMPAIGN IS FALLING APART SO HOW DOES SHE EXPECT TO RUN THE COUNTRY. JUST LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCES THEY SEEM TO HAVE SOOO MANY SIMILARITYS THAT IF WE TOOK THE TIME TO LISTEN THEY HAVE SOME HUGE DIFFRENCES.
NUMBER 1 THE PEOPLE THAT ARE SUPPORTING HILARY ARE JUST DOING IT BECSAUE SHE IS A WOMAN.
NUMBER 2 THE PEOPLE SUPPORTING HILARY ARE DOING IT BECASUE SHES BILL CLINTONS WIFE AND THEY LOVED BILL CLINTON.
UNDERSTAND SHE WANTS TO RUN THE COUNTRY NOT BILL CLINTON AND SO WHAT SHE IS A WOMAN. I AM A WHITE MAN AND THE REASONS I SUPPORT OBAMA IS SIMPLY HE IS BETTER CAPABLE OF RUNNING THE COUNTRY. HER LIFES A MESS HER CAMPAIGNS A MESS SHE CANT EVEN HANDLE HER HUSBAND NEED LESS HE WOULDNT HAVE CHEATED..LOL THAT LAST PART WAS A JOKE BUT SERIOUSLY PEOPLE THINK ABOUT THE LONG TERM. THIS IS TO BIG OF AN ELECTION TO MAKE A CRITICAL ERROR AND THINK HILARY CAN RUN THIS COUNTRY.

These are all well known lines from history. I have a dream- M.L. King, We have nothing to fear but fear itself." - F.D. Roosevelt, Yes, we can, variation of black populism from Nation of a million speaker. " We hold these truths to be self evident. " -from our Declaration of Independence via Thomas Jefferson.

Wake up, didn't you go to grade school. Are you illiterate? These are not plagiarisms, these are historical quotes.

The point of this is that these are progressive sentiments.
Nice but pathetic try, muckraker.

are you going to make the same kind of video for Hillary when she "borrowed" her husbands words for her last statement in the Austin debates?


"Clinton faces claims of borrowed language"
http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/

"The hits that I took in this election are nothing compared to the hits the people of this state and this country have been taking for a long time," her husband was quoted as saying in an article by Anna Quindlen in the New York Times in November of 1992.

For the ignorant people who depend on hearsay instead of educating themselves about the facts, Obama isn't a Muslim and has never been a Muslim. I'm a Buddhist and and find your ignorant comments offensive and just shows your bigotry. Obama is a Christian. His father wasn't around to raise him or to have a say about his religious preferences. His mother raised him on her own from the time he was two years old. He was raised Christian.
