Could somebody please count the "I's," "me's," and "my's" in Obama's talk at the George Bush library?

Thanks.

I'm too lazy to find the video and do it myself.

You’ll have to pay me to watch Obama do anything.

$200 should do it.

Sorry - as soon as he started talking I changed the channel to The Rockford Files.

$200 per self reference, that is. We’ve got a mortgage to pay off here!

Barry is a text book narcissist.

As he is exposed...and he will be...he's gonna blow. Should be entertaining. Just a matter of time.

(Oh, and you with the naughty minds—not talking about Reggie Love activities.)

If you think Obama’s speech is not appropriate, just wait till it is HIS presidential library.

Even Jimmy Carter was gracious in his brief (thankfully) remarks. Slick couldn’t help himself and got his usual self-congratulations in while appearing to pat GWB on the back and then when the current occupant of the WH rose to speak, I turned it off. He isn’t allowed in my house.

I would.

But

I would

have to listen

to him.

And that

would make my

ears bleed.

But the truth is, our club is more like a support group. The last time we all got together was just before I took office and I needed that. Because as each of these leaders will tell you, no matter how much you think you're ready to assume the office of the President, it's impossible to truly understand the nature of the job until it's yours.

The job is clearly above his pay grade. Biased debates and biased reporting kept him from getting an accurate appraisal at his 4 year performance review. Anyone at any other company (who wasn't the boss' kid) would be out on his rump looking for work (as Al Gore Jr. was when he lost the race in 2000).

Had to mute the sound about 2 sentences into Obama’s self-adoration proclamation. A scent of sulfur was in the air.

How long was the speech?

He usually runs at about three “I’s” per minute.

So, just do the math and avoid the pain of watching.

Using my formula in post #23 that would indicate an 8 or 9 minute speech.

Was I close?

You are spot on. I’m shocked he didn’t take two hours.
