You catch him once, he gets suspended for a semester, then goes on academic probation, and then he plagiarizes horribly again. Will Barack Obama ever learn that Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has copyrights on every word? Apparently not, since he may have stolen yet another whole two sentences from Patrick.
“I am not asking anybody to take a chance on ME. I’m asking you to take a chance on your OWN aspirations.”
In November 2007, Barack Obama said this same sentence, immediately after taking a crib sheet into the SAT:
“I’m not just asking you to take a chance on ME. I’m also asking you to take a chance on your OWN aspirations.”
Aha, notice those sly insertions of Barack’s, like “just” and “you” and “also.” As if Teacher would never notice!
Barack Obama, officially, has never uttered an original sentence in his life. But maybe it’s some black politician ESP thing that us regulars can’t understand, and they can’t control?
