Not sure if Barack Obama was planning on this one, but on the day he gave a address in Rio de Janeiro about the beginning of military actions against Libya, is the same day, eight years ago, that George W. Bush gave an Oval Office address stating the start of military exercises in Iraq. After reading and watching the two speeches, they are quite similar. Drudge put excerpts up from both to better exhibit the similarities.

OBAMA: 'Today we are part of a broad coalition. We are answering the calls of a threatened people. And we are acting in the interests of the United States and the world'...March 19, 2003
BUSH: 'American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger'...After practicing a consistent policy of blaming George W. Bush, Barack Obama is embracing the former president. This will definitely make many, to steal a phrase from Arsenio Hall, "go hmmm."
