Plagiarizing

Most people remember Mr. Biden plagiarizing the British Labour Leader Neil Kinnock in the 1988 presidential campaign. It resulted in his withdrawal from the race, even though Johnny Carson, on his Tonight Show monologue said he encouraged his followers by reminding them that "We have nothing to fear but fear itself." We all laughed even though we knew Biden probably didn't say that one.

But how widespread is plagiarism? I suppose most politicians do it, knowingly or unknowingly, at some time or another, but if it is frequent then that person has a real problem. Biden's plagiarism is common knowledge in many circles.

But then, is Biden the only plagiarizer on that ticket?



Reading the associated materials with this video, I note that it was apparently posted by a member of PUMA, ie a supporter of Hillary.

Yeah, Obama and Biden have A LOT in common, its just that Obama didn't get much heat for his plagiarism. Remember, he's the Obamamessiah!
