Obama's SOTU "Tantamount to Plagiarism"?

As I type, Mark Levin is reading the following passage from an article by Alvin Felzenberg in U.S. News. The title of the article is "Obama's State of the Union Was Tantamount to Plagiarism."
Had the president submitted the text of his second State of the Union Address in the form of a college term paper, he would have been sent forthwith to the nearest academic dean. Once again, our public affairs are such that we have one standard for presidents and another for undergraduates. 
It would appear that the only president of note whose imprint was absent in Obama’s long awaited and much-anticipated speech was Obama. This was supposed to have been the moment when the nation found out whether he was at the core a Rooseveltian liberal or a Clintonian centrist. What it got was a cut and pasted version of great and not-so-great State of the Union and other addresses of the past.
Read the rest.



  1. This just goes to show how empty this man is. He has very little to add to the national conversation. He's a fraud.

  2. @John - It must be hard always being "the smartest guy in the room." Your team of speechwriters just can't read your mind adequately.
