LOL

You want an unconditional 2nd, and then demand a condition.



I demand the 2nd be applied equally, regardless of religion.

Why is that so hard to accept?


Islam is not merely a religion, though. Is it?

That would be all nice and everything if the Libertarian party wouldn't have been co-opted by TPTB. Gary and Weld running around praising Hillary is unsettling to say the least.

I cannot and will not support anyone that does not match my hatred for HRC.

Looks like she copied parts of her speech from Michelle.

Lol I doubt she had any hand in the speech writing. It probably came from the same filing cabinet as Michelle Obama's and the speech writer charged a couple of hundred grand again.

I find the similarities troubling, but I found the second speech move believable and sincere.

At least Melania didn't feel proud to be American for the first time in her adult life.

LOL, yes...
To be honest the MSM have majored on 2 and half paragraphs from about 20 in the speech. They are being , surprise, vindictive. The vast majority of it was quite different however, it's pretty clear she must have been researching and lifted a few words. So what? If she liked it and believed it then why not.

I think people are being very dishonest. If this was someone on the Left that had obviously copied parts of someone else's speech, many of you would be throwing a fit.

Wow... Whoever wrote plagiarized that speech should be in big trouble... but it's probably someone close to Donald, like family (or maybe Donald himself)... What a cluster, eh? Of course Trump supporters are downplaying it... exposing their hypocrisy. Because if this had been a Democrat, the crap would be hitting the fan... But since it's "their guy", it's all good...

This convention has been one spectacle after another. I feel better than ever about voting for Hillary. The GOP elite must not get control of this nation, as they clearly have control of the Republican party members...

But I'm glad they're exposing the workings behind the curtain...

She doesn't sound like an American. No-one has a problem with a First Lady who sounds like Natasha Fatale?

That cuts both ways.
We don't actually know the facts behind the construction of the speech... who wrote the speech? She said she wrote some of it, not all of it. If two paragraphs out of 20 were similar to Obamas then why does it matter? She may have listened to it and thought it reflected her own thoughts. Maybe someone else wrote it.. who knows. Why is it a headline? It's a pretty weak line of attack when in actual fact she gave a really strong performance for someone not used to the political arena at all. Perhaps you should set aside your political bias and just give her credit. To be fair to most of the pundits, that's what they did.

“In writing her beautiful speech, Melania’s team of writers took notes on her life’s inspirations, and in some instances included fragments that reflected her own thinking. Melania’s immigrant experience and love for America shone through in her speech, which made it such a success.”

Did she plagiarize or paraphrase?

She mouthed platitudes. Neither speech was very original: America...proud...values...hard work....

Yes, I do give that crew some credit though for their incredible work on behalf on Clinton last night, LOL. It does appear that the contribution became somewhat desperate though, which is understandable given the shellacking Clinton took last night.

At which point then it gets pretty hard to voice them on 100% original ways. Some close similarities are bound to happen.

And it is the convention. No one is going to give much of a deep policy wonk talk here. You might get something of it out Trump's rollout speech, but then it will all be very general. And you might get some out of Pence.

The theme of last night's pageant was supposed to be foreign policy. Did anyone mention it at all?

How to Recognize Plagiarism



If the summary contains a sequence of 7 or more words taken from that source which is not properly acknowledged, then word-for-word plagiarism is also committed.


Yup. It passes as plagiarism. There are several places where more than seven words were EXACTLY the same. There's one place where 23 words are the same.

The writers obviously knew they were plagiarizing, because sometimes they left one word out or changed just one or two words... It's not her fault, it's the incompetent campaign... run by an incompetent politician.

Would you be making excuses if Barack Obama's wife had copied someone's speech?
