(CNSNews.com) - Speaking in Sandusky, Ohio on July 5, President Barack Obama used the first-person pronouns I and me a combined 117 times in a speech that lasted about 25 minutes and 32 seconds.
Obama used I 98 times and me 19 times, according to a transcript of the speech posted by the White House. A videotape of the speech posted on YouTube shows that Obama spoke for about 25-and-a-half minutes.
During this speech, Obama used I or me approximately once every 13.09 seconds.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney also frequently used the first-person pronoun in his most recent speech that has been posted in its entirety on C-SPAN. Speaking in Salem, Va., on Jun 26, Romney used the first-person pronouns I and me a combined 55 times in a speech that lasted about 18 minutes and 13 seconds.
Romney used I 47 times and me 8 times. During the just over 18 minutes that Romney spoke at Salem, he used I or me approximately once every 19.87 seconds.
Near the end of his talk in Sandusky, Ohio, Obama told his audience he had made a commitment to think about them every morning when he arises.
I want you to know that when I ran in 2008, I said I wasn't going to be a perfect man and I certainly wasn't going to be a perfect president, but I'd always tell you what I thought. I'd always tell you where I stood, Obama said. And, most of all, I would wake up every single day thinking about you
“How do I love me? Let me count the ways. Well, enough about me. What do YOU think of me? Anyone have a mirror for me? I need to kiss myself, as you all are dying to do to me...”

I think of the Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honecker kiss.
Classic case of Narcissistic maladjustment.
The same symptoms were exhibited by Stalin, Hitler, and many others of those on history’s List of Infamy.
Narcissist-in-Chief. He loves to hear himself talk about himself.
Words speak for themselves....
Hey, you’ve been thought about by The Won! What could be more comforting?
(WHAT AN EGOTIST)
Yeah, it was clear when he was elected and crystal clear now...we’ve got ourselves a real narcisist. Rather rare.
He’s going to blow, my friends. These guys always do. When the adoration drops off and people start seeing them as they are...GET READY! It’s coming!
And I’m going to love every second of this creeps take down...not to mention his fat arsed beard.
Wonder if Vogue will think old Down Low Barry and his boob wearing wife so uber cool next year?
Just another way he is Clinton II
Although he probably broke Bubba’s record
I, Me, Mine.....

"Hey, Barry...BRING IT!"
Originally said of the popular Bill Clinton; the American people like hearing about both of them.
