Vlad Tepes caught last night something that everyone else totally missed in the blogosphere and in the news media. The speech Barack Obama delivered at Fort Hood in the memorial service for the twelve soldiers and one civilian murdered in the Islamic terrorist attack last week, contained a line taken almost verbatim from the late John F.Kennedy’s famous “moon speech”. The Tundra Tabloids likes the way Vlad Tepes puts an interesting twist to the story line. KGS
Vlad Tepes: Here we see John Kennedy brutally steal one of Obama’s best lines and not even attribute it. This is how American politics goes to the dumpster. And didn’t some of Kennedy’s other speeches and running mate’s speeches also have allegations of theft?
Just like his Vice President, Joe Biden, did with a Robert Kennedy speech!

This further proves that the Obama speech writings team plagiarized the Kennedy quote, for it simply doesn’t make sense in the context in which it was written. It was rammed in there because it sounded good, not because it was fitting….or better yet, that it made any sense. What a gaffe.
