Depends on the length of the speech. I’d say about 3 per minute.

Okay, 25 minute speech? 75 times.

I would make it into a drinking game, but cirrhosis or alcohol poisoning is a certainty.

when does the transcript come out? - I’d rather do an edit/search on the word “I” than have to sit through that crap.

I want the entire Obama administration and all leftists at every level to say, “Bye!” and then really leave, forever! Nothing else matters.

Start drinking when he starts mumbling and you’ll be drunk in no time. I won’t watch the bastard, either.

17 times. I was thinking of pumping out the septic tank at that time. The stench will remind me of what Obama consists of.

He’ll reference himself only slightly more than he says “the failed policies of the past 8 years.”

I caught some of his talk to the troops this afternoon..it was pathetic, a really bad job..he was almost inarticulate..of course, the teleprompter wasn't there to tell him what to say, and the applause was, at best, tepid at the end..

he had one interesting, nay..weird line..."for as long as I'm president, I'll always appreciate the sacrifice of our brave troops

All right...if it’s just the pronoun “I,” then I’ll guess 47 times.

Include “me,” “my” and “mine” and I’ll say 180.

I won’t be watching since I already know that it’s useless to expect anything different or of any value to come out of his mouth.

Besides, I’m pretty sure that there will be something much more important to watch on TV tonight, such as... hmmm?... the Kardashians? or... Hanna Montana?... or... baseball?... hmmm, I’ll have to check what time the Rays are on.

He’s never comfortable with the troops. He has nothing in common with them. Hell, he has nothing in common with America....except thuggery and buggery on the South Side of Chicago.

He wont do it once,he is paranoin about criticism and he has heard it. The Best thing to do is shut up and not say anything beforehand and let him step in it then clobber him. Now he is forewarned and will make you look like fools

22? That’s a low figure. Especially in a speech already publicized as being between his and Bush’s accomplishments. That has to be worth another 100 or so, at least.

Actually I think it is going to be in the low numbers.

He received quite a bit of static for all the "I's" in his speech on Saturday. Even some of the main stream media commented on it.
