    Default fact checking joe biden for plagiarism

    the speech biden gave last night after the school shooting in texas. . .
    was it the same exact speech obama gave after sandy hook ten years ago?
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Yup, we've heard that exact same speech way too many times. I am very tired of hearing it.

    Isn't the greater concern the fact that the same speech is still just as relevant as it was 10 years ago?

    That, I believe, was precisely the point.

    Sandy Hook - Uvalde. That was not plagiarism, that was grief.

    I've heard that Biden wrote all of Obama's speeches so it was it was Joe's to use anyway.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    How many more times will we hear it again in the next 10 years and how many millions will the NRA spend on buying politicians in that time.

    The facts have not changed. Biden’s mind has not changed. QED.

    .
    What are the odds that Biden himself wrote the speech he gave? If he didn't write it then he wasn't the plagiarist

    I would be extremely cautious about casually criticizing a man who knows what it’s like to lose not one, but two children.
    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."

    Thank you Norman, nicely put.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    Came here to say this. Out of our recent presidents, Mr. Biden is the most acquainted with grief.

    Generally, I don't think a head of state should act on his own or improvise. This includes speaches. The head of state speaks for the nation and has an organisation that supports him and can write well thought out speaches that convey the intended message.

    The Sandy Hook speech was co-written by President Obama, Cody Keenan, and Jon Favereau.
