Obama Plagiarizes Bob the Builder in NH Concession Speech

Despite Sen. Barack Obama’s surprise, at least to the pollsters and those who believe them, loss to Sen. Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire tonight, he remained upbeat and positive, borrowing a line from apolitical Bob the Builder to fire up the audience. During a call-and-response component of his concession speech, Obama called out a series of rhetorical questions, only to answer them himself with “Yes We Can.”

Obama's Call: "Can We Do It, America?"
Obama's Response: “Yes We Can!”

“We’re happy to see that Bob’s message has resonated with Obama,” Wendy, a spokeswoman for Bob the Builder, told Political Fallout. “Bob has always espoused the same message -- a message of change, and we’re glad to see that it has finally gained some traction among eligible voters. My only regret is that Mr. Obama didn’t attribute Bob for using his life-long message. ”

Kudos to Bob the Builder for taking the high road and responding so gracefully.

Isn't it possible that Obama was echoing the lost lyrics of the Pointer Sisters’ 1973 hit “Yes We Can" I mean seriously. He grew up during a powerful era of civil rights movements when almost every african american artist was singing about change. Sorry but "yes we can" was shouted long before Bob the builder came along.

Put Barack Obama in Bob's song. "Bar-ack 0-bama! Can we fix it! Bar-ack O-bama! Yes we can!" Fits perfectly! LOL.
