Clinton campaign is grasping for straws to slow down Obama's momentum

After losing 8 primaries/caucuses in a row to Barack Obama, Clinton’s campaign is trying anything they can to slow down his momentum. They’re intensifying their fabrications of facts and financing more smear ads on television in hopes that voters will listen to their propaganda and lose the fire and inspiration that Obama has sparked in them. Today she has gone to a new low by trying to attack Obama’s strength, his words and speeches. Clinton’s campaign is accusing Obama of plagiarising his speech on Saturday night to a Wisconsin crowd by borrowing from a fellow supporter, and current governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick.

What Obama actually did was use the same famous sayings from former presidents, that Deval Patrick used in his own speech 2 years ago and made the same argument that powerful speeches aren’t just words. Not only that, but Deval Patrick had suggested Obama use these quotes and David Axelrod, who is currently running Obama’s campaign, ran Patrick’s campaign two years ago; therefore, Axelrod might’ve been the original influence behind the original use of these famous quotes. So the question is, when is plagiarism really plagiarism? I doubt using the same quotes that everyone knows and grasping the same universal meaning behind them counts.

Besides, Hillary Clinton is not only guilty of “stealing” speeches from her own husband but she also has taken slogans right out of Obama’s camp. Just another example of Clinton following the same old “Do as I say, not as I do” politics. She should really stop trying to point fingers of possible missteps that Obama may or may not have committed when she is guilty of the same transgressions.

Obama’s “plagiarism”:

One of Obama’s repeating slogans and Clinton’s plagiarism of it:

Everyone knows Obama’s “Yes We Can” slogan, well guess what:

Hillary Clinton really needs to look in the mirror.


One thought on “Clinton campaign is grasping for straws to slow down Obama's momentum

  1. So typical… When you can’t say anything worthwhile, try to smite your competition by putting their integrity and credibility to question. It’s such a cheap tactic yet people fall for it.

    The sad truth is that ignorance ablaze is far more powerful than knowledge “on ice”. People tend to put important things aside to soak in stupid trivia, gossip, and pop culture.. Naturally, when a politician reveals some dirt on another politician, people listen more. It’s a shame, really…

    What really burns me up is how Hillary has captivated so many Latinos yet she represents small/private interests, which does not benefit minorities of any kind. Obama may be shaky on some things but one thing that has resonated from his campaign is his desire to take away the power corporate lobbyists and small interest groups have in Washington. He really wants to focus on the issues that affect the common person, not the mere 5-8%.

    I think all the Latinos blindly supporting Hillary simply because she speaks a little Spanish and hangs out in the ghetto need to open their eyes up. She’s just duping our fellows because we represent a large group within a minority. That minority vote can be enough to put her over the edge.

    I’ve seen Clinton’s campaign change more and more to mimic that of Obama. I swear her stances on issues have changed after seeing how Obama’s strategies have worked for him. She wants to talk about plagiarism? LMAO

    If nothing else, you can see how genuine and heart-felt Barack Obama’s words are. Hillary Clinton speaks and I am irked almost immediately. She feels so fake, so plastic.. It’d be nice to have a leader in place that is actually believable, for once.
