Lifting from Obama?

The core reasons why I didn't like Cameron's Conference speech was he was trying to be someone else (namely Blair) and he used a number of devices what seemed to me to be from the culture of American speech-writing.  An inauthentic voice comes through in a speech.  The Mail of Sunday has confirmed the latter, arguing the Tory activist bit was lifted from a 2008 Obama speech.  Although the device is commonly used for example it is a regular feature of the State of the Union address.
