During the 2008 campaign Barrack Husain Obama was accused by some of plagiarism when he quoted from Deval Patrick's "Just Words" speech of 15 October 2006. Not lost in this event is the fact that Governor Patrick is a Democrat and Black. He was elected Governor of Massachusetts in 2007.
Barrack quoted Governor Patrick by saying "Don't tell me words don't matter, 'Obama told the Wisconsin audience,' "I have a dream" Just Words, We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal" just Words, We have nothing to fear but fear itself, just words."
I remember clearly the impression I had at the time I heard him make this quote that he had no real reverence for these particular quotations as did Governor Patrick; on the contrary, Obama was callously, in vial tones, making fun of them. Those who chided him for plagiarism, writing long articles on the subject, missed the mark all together.
For months now "Words, just words" has troubled by mind as echoed from Obama's lips, and were regurgitated by him again in 2012. Matter of fact, for those who have followed his speeches with any degree of regularity cannot escape the notion that they have heard the same words over and over and over again. One is left to conclude that he has nothing really original to say or express, since he lacks any obvious sense of integrity, or convictions other than his bloated ego.
It is too obvious to be ignored that on January 24 at his inauguration his "Oath of Office" sadly and forever were, and became "Words, just words." Obama's view of our constitution, the Bill of Rights, Americas heritage, history and World Power status are meaningless to him. If The majority of the Congress and The Senate cannot find it in themselves to observe the moral decay he has created, and be critical of his total disregard for his oath of office, they must in the eternities share responsibility for Americas fall from the grace of God.
As an American, as a Veteran, as a human being I grieve for my country that I have loved all my life, that I would live to see it devoured by vicious wolfs, trampled on by those whose hearts are hard, vial and past feeling. Where are our patriot leaders, those who will choose the right, and be valiant in truth and stand for liberty, those who eschew evil?
Our Nation and its people ought to be crying for mercy day and night from almighty God. I pray this is the case.
