Joe Biden - Famous Plagiarist

Do you remember a few years ago when fellow Democrat Mike Dukakis outed Joe Biden for being a plagiarist. Biden quickly exited the Democrat primary for President. Obama who does not have the institutional history of Biden now selects a plagiarist as his running mate. To see all of Biden's history. Check it out here.

Senator Biden’s plagiarism of a speech by British Labor Party leader Neal Kinnock took place at a campaign stump at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. In closing his speech, Biden took Kinnock’s ideas and language as if they were his very own inspired thoughts, prefacing Kinnock’s ideas with the phrase “I started thinking as I was coming over here . . . “. Little did Biden suspect that video footage of this speech would be spliced together with footage of Kinnock’s speech in an “attack video” which would be distributed by members of the Dukakis campaign.
