Has President Obama gone from blaming Bush to stealing from Bush? That is what former Bush speechwriter Mark Thiessen claims. On the post State of the Union version of The Kelly Files on Fox News channel, Host Megyn Kelly interviewed Thiessen about why some lines in the 2014 SOTU sounded familiar.

It was eerily familiar. There were lines like, ‘Our job is to help Americans build a future of hope and opportunity. A future of hope and opportunity begins with a growing economy. A future of hope and opportunity requires our citizens have affordable and available health care. Extending opportunity and hope depends on a stable supply of energy.’

All of that came from the 2007 State of the Union address by George W. Bush. So, Barack Obama has gone from blaming George W. bush to plagiarizing George W. Bush.

Thiessen said later that the reason he remembered it so well was the 2007 Bush speech was the first State of the Union address which he served as the lead writer.
