Obama Copies? Plaigarizes? Steals? From Deval Patrick's Speech.
Then Gubernatorial candidate Deval Patrick's "Just Words" speech from October 2006.
Obama on 2/16/08 talking about why words matter to the Wisconsin Democratic Party.
The Obama campaign has issued a statement from Gov. Patrick: “Sen. Obama and I are long-time friends and allies. We often share ideas about politics, policy and language. The argument in question, on the value of words in the public square, is one about which he and I have spoken frequently before. Given the recent attacks from Sen. Clinton, I applaud him responding in just the way he did.”
My personal opinion on this matter, no matter how much I like Obama as a candidate, is that when citing other's words, he should give credit to them when he is quoting them.
An interesting article about this was posted at the Boston Globe website. The story was published way back in April 2007. You can read it by clicking here.
