wait, so you guys are getting pissy because his speech (most likely not written by him) contains similar phrasing regarding statements of historical fact about Georgia?

funny , there was a 'pissy' posting when Obama used lines in his speeches from others ......... yet he never claimed those words were his or that he lived that  senario's . big difference.  McCain is claiming this was his life but it has never ever come up before. not even in his biographies and it's such a great story for one to leave out. because it's not his !!

Obama ' borrowing ' phrases in his speechs

on that note as well - a quote from a Republican speech writer on the subject about Obama..

But, taken as a whole, the evidence seemingly paints a different picture than Obama as a "serial-borrower." Indeed, as other Republican word-smiths note, candidates of all political stripes frequently and liberally take lines from each other.

"When I used to write for Republicans in the late 1990s and up through a few years ago, I wrote language books for them and they all used it," said Frank Luntz, the Republican political strategist and "framing" guru. "And it wasn't what we call plagiarism. It was written for them to use. It was written for them to stay on message... I'm sorry but Hillary Clinton does not deliver her own speeches. People write words for her. Unless you create your own language you have no right to criticize some else, especially if it comes from a friend or ally."
