Glenn Beck is borrowing some lines from President Barack Obama.

At his rally with tens of thousands on the steps of Lincoln Memorial, Beck used the closing lines of then-candidate Obama's campaign stump speech of 2008.

"One man can change the world," Beck told the crowd. "That man or woman is you. You make the difference."

Obama used a similar message on the campaign trail. He used to say that once voice could change a room, one room could change a city, and one city could change a state. Obama liked to say that state could change a country and urged supporters to go out and change the world.

Beck says his supporters should do the same.

He says, "Look to the heavens. Look to God. And make your choice."
