Clinton’s accusations of plagiarism backfire

Following a recent string of attacks against the Obama campaign, accusing her rival of plagiarism in recent speeches, Hillary Clinton is being greeted with a taste of her own medicine…or stupidity – you decide.

Clinton’s closing remark on last night’s CNN Democratic debates was strikingly similar to statements made by a former politician who she just happens to be relatively close with: Bill Clinton.

Hillary Clinton, 2008, on the difficulties of being an ordinary American:

“You know, the hits I’ve taken in life are nothing compared to what goes on every single day in the lives of people across our country.”

Bill Clinton, 1992, on the difficulties of being an ordinary American:

“The hits that I took in this election are nothing compared to the hits the people of this state and this country have been taking for a long time,”

But that’s not all! Clinton must have also reasoned that since John Edwards is now out of the race, not only are his policies fair-game to use as talking points, but so are the transcripts of his speeches!

Hillary Clinton, 2008, on the upcoming election and the American people:

“You know, whatever happens, we’re going to be fine. You know, we have strong support from our families and our friends. I just hope that we’ll be able to say the same thing about the American people. And that’s what this election should be about.”

John Edwards, 2008, on the upcoming election and the American people:

“What’s not at stake are any of us. All of us are going to be just fine no matter what happens in this election. But what’s at stake is whether America is going to be fine,”

Hillary, if you’re going to start pointing out your candidates apparent mishaps and mistakes, it’s common knowledge not to turn around and repeat those same actions on national TV.
