It’s Uncanny! Obama Copied Jimmy Carter’s Convention Acceptance Speech from 1980
That’s it. When Obama said that he was the president, the context was he had changed from 2008. (impression) “I’ve changed since 2008. I’m the president!” Which, I guess, was a way of complaining that he couldn’t run against himself. Because he’s running a campaign as though he’s not the president, not the incumbent. Now, Snerdley just shared with me a theory that, frankly, I think is a bit of a stretch. Snerdley thinks that all this talk…
For example, in the last sound bite that we played Obama said, “The election four years ago wasn’t about me; it was about you.” Snerdley thinks that that was an attempt to get back some of the fallout from (impression), “You didn’t build that! You had nothing to do with that. You didn’t make that happen.” Snerdley thinks that means, “You were the change. You elected me. You were the change.” Snerdley thinks that that’s Obama trying to make amends. I don’t think that’s it at all, with all due respect to Snerdley.
I think Obama is saying, “The onus for getting me back in the White House is on you.” I think Obama is saying, “It’s your responsibility. I did the stimulus for you. I did Obamacare for you. I stuck my neck out for you. I did everything for you, and now it’s up to you.” I think the onus is on you to get him back in the Oval Office, and to keep his little (pause) on Air Force One. It’s totally megalomaniacal. That’s what he is. Let’s do another Jimmy Carter comparison, shall we?
As you listen to these tapes of Carter, it’s 1980. What is that, 30-years ago? Yeah, it’s 30 years ago. I can’t… (snickers) I always thought Carter was a hayseed. Anyway, we’ll do another side-by-side comparison. Here’s Obama, and the theme of the speech: “Referendum on their record is not an option. It’s a choice between two futures.” Obama’s record is not on the ballot. No, no, no, no. What we have is “a choice between two futures.”
