Ken says Obama lifted lines from "The American President," which seems like BS

But, I'm too busy right now to really look, and since Ken doesn't actually give any actual examples, I'm willing to just think he's blowing smoke. But, I'd actually like to know.

So, here's your assignment:

Compare the Obama convention speech text and the script from the "American President" and find any similar lines.

I love it!

You and I are thinking the same thing. Thanks for posting the links. I was much more interested in calling B.S. rather than doing the leg work.

So here's one from AP:

"It's White House Resolution 455, an energy bill requiring a 20 percent reduction of the emission of fossil fuels over the next ten years"

"And for the sake of our economy, our security, and the future of our planet, I will set a clear goal as President: in ten years, we will finally end our dependence on oil from the Middle East"

They also both used the word debate in reference to a political opponent.
