About Me

Married, 2 kids a boy and a girl. Two dogs, both boxers, a cat that I'm pretty sure is at least part maine coon..who knows. I found him in my driveway freezing and starving. I enjoy reading, music, I watch entirely too much tv and Republicans make me sick. I think family is the most important thing. Anything else you wanna know, just ask. :-)

Rubio Copied One Of Obama’s Most Famous Speeches – And Obama’s Speechwriter Just Called Him On It

Marco Rubio may have come in third in the Iowa caucus behind both Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, but for reasons that remain unclear his team – and the media – are treating it like he just locked up the presidency. (Don’t break out the champagne just yet, Rubio fans, third place finishers almost never end up winning the nomination.)

But clearly thrilled with the narrative that he had pulled off a political upset…by coming in third… Rubio delivered a tone-deaf “victory” speech about how no one thought he could do it… come in third, that is.

“So this is the moment they said would never happen. For months, for months they told us we had no chance. For months they told us because we offer too much optimism in a time of anger, we had no chance. For months they told us because we didn’t have the right endorsements or the right political connections, we had no chance. They told me that we have no chance because my hair wasn’t gray enough and my boots were too high.”

To political insiders watching the speech, there was growing bafflement. Anyone with any familiarity with one of Obama’s most iconic speeches – when he won the Iowa caucus in 2008, a very real upset – noticed immediately that Rubio was pretty much plagiarizing the sitting-president almost verbatim.

Here’s Obama’s:

“They said this day would never come. They said our sights were set too high. They said this country was too divided, too disillusioned to ever come together around a common purpose. But on this January night, at this defining moment in history, you have done what the cynics said we couldn’t do.”

Like any copy-cat, Rubio’s version paled in comparison to the original. Obama’s speech was forceful, aspirational, and concise. It set the tone for Obama’s entire campaign. Here was an underdog who no one believed could do it, handily beating the favored choices. As a result, Obama’s comments felt earned. Rubio is using a more “fake it til you make it” approach.

Hilariously, Obama’s former speechwriter was one of the people scratching their heads at Rubio’s carbon copy. He scorched Rubio’s campaign in a tweet.

He could've at least thanked Obama for the opening line https://t.co/meP627U6pv

I saw Hillary talking with..

Chris Matthews and she made a very valid point. The congress how is anything going to get done with them?

I've thought about that myself.

Bernie Sanders is on the telly..

Exposing the Walton family and telling the truth about Walmart and how shitty they treat their employees.

I'm glad someone is speaking about this.

Now my candidate is out..

I have no one to fight for.

In 2008 I was so hyped up for the election. I was fighting for both our candidates (Hill & Obama).


...it sucks.

Guess I'll stay on Twitter and make fun of the Repukes.

I will vote for the eventual nominee.

Yes we can...

did that slimy little fuckball Cruz lift Obama's slogan after he bashed him.

I hate those fuckers.
