Obama Copies Edwards Words On Lobbying.

Obama is following John Edwards again by using John Edwards' lines.

I have been saying for awhile that Obama is trying to be John Edwards and he continues to take John Edwards words.

I have to say that this is a big compliment to John Edwards and it speaks to me that John Edwards is saying the right things and I hope that voters take notice.

John Edwards takes the lead again and others follow.

On Sunday, Obama appeared to have a little 'amnesia' and used Edwards' line in Nevada.

"I don't mind lobbyists having a seat at the table, I just don't want them to buy all the chairs. I want them to be part of the discussion where citizens also are part of the process. . . How many people here have a federal lobbyist?"

Not suprising! Isn't this a "positive" campaign? Edwards should call him out on that.

If Obama copies I'm okay with it.  This issue needs exposure and if Edwards frame is the best, then use it.  At least Obama is copying Edwards and not Clinton.

Re: Obama Copies Edwards Words On Lobbying.

Since you accept that he copies Edwards why doesn't he just drop out and let Edwards be the alternative to Hillary . Since you accept he is an Edwards follower , he might as well leave it to the leader

Re: Obama Copies Edwards
I don't think Pioneer has any influence on Obama's campaign. But the corporate media does - and needs him for a buffer between Edwards and Hillary.
If they didn't - we'd hear more about Rezko and Obama's lack of character and less about haircuts.

Re: Obama Copies Edwards

I have noticed that obama has been taking edward's position a lot lately and since he has to follow edwards he might as well leave it to him , who at least stakes that position irrespective of the day , time or poll position.

Re: Obama Copies Edwards
Yes - Edwards presented details and solutions for major issues when he announced - and continues the narratives.
No pole dancing and mafia videos from him - just SUBSTANCE from the gitgo!

Re: Obama Copies Edwards Words On Lobbying.

It is clear that Obama has no problems stealing from another candidate. He stole a website from a fan so can we expect anything less from a political rival? He runs on ethics but commits these most unethical actions. His followers don't seem to mind though. If his halo gets dirty they fall over one another rushing to clean it off before anyone else notices.

Re: Obama Copies

I've said before, he has used almost word-for-word Hillary's "Our soldiers have done what they were asked" little speech.  Obama's ego is so huge, he thinks he can just repeat word-for-word because he is the only one being listened to so no one will know where it came from.
