A former speechwriter for President George W. Bush says he recognized several phrases in President Barack Obama's State of Union speech on Tuesday – because he wrote them.

"Barack Obama has gone from blaming George W. Bush to plagiarizing George W. Bush," Marc Thiessen, lead speechwriter for Bush's 2007 State of the Union address, said Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File."

Thiessen read aloud multiple quotes from Obama's speech in which he referenced "hope and opportunity." All of those lines came from Bush's 2007 speech, he said.

"Now, of course, Barack Obama and George W. Bush and conservatives have a very different understanding of  'opportunity,'" Thiessen said.

Obama thinks the path to opportunity is more governmental involvement, while conservatives think it's more private enterprise, Thiessen said.
