And why did he plagiarize President Obama? Really. This Idaho Republican is running for Congress, and none other than Sarah Palin endorsed him. The question is why did this REPUBLICAN use President Obama's speech in this rally?
Did he or his handlers not think people would recognize that speech. Bigger question. Why is he using President Obama's words? Was there no Republican he could steal from? Like, say, Sarah Palin?
Remember Sarah's gorgeous rhetoric? Here are samples:
Here resignation speech:
"Together we do stand with gratitude for our troops who protect all of our cherished freedoms, including our freedom of speech which, par for the course, I'm going to exercise."
"And first, some straight talk for some, just some in the media because another right protected for all of us is freedom of the press, and you all have such important jobs reporting facts and informing the electorate, and exerting power to influence. You represent what could and should be a respected honest profession that could and should be the cornerstone of our democracy. Democracy depends on you, and that is why, that's why our troops are willing to die for you. So, how 'bout in honor of the American soldier, ya quite makin' things up."
"Life is too short to compromise time and resources. And though it may be tempting and more comfortable to just kind of keep your head down and plod along and appease those who are demanding, hey, just sit down and shut up, but that's a worthless, easy path. That's a quitters way out."
Or is Ward really a secret admirer of Barack Obama? This is bizarre.

BTW, This is on his website: Honor, Respect, Courage, Conviction, and Dedication
HONOR? Seriously. Respect? Courage, Conviction and Dedication. He forgot to include "USING THE OPPOSITION PARTY'S BIG GUY'S SPEECH TO PROMOTE MY CANDIDACY, HOPING NO ONE WILL FIND OUT."
