Could somebody please count the "I's," "me's," and "my's" in Obama's talk at the George Bush library?
I'm too lazy to find the video and do it myself.
Sorry, I’d have to watch the speech to do that, and that ain’t happenin’.
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.
That was a good show!
I can’t sit through 1 second of Down Low Barry....no amount of $$$ can change that. The little creep makes me ill.
$200 per self reference, that is. We’ve got a mortgage to pay off here!
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.)
Obama is very bad for my blood pressure. I hate him.
If you think Obama’s speech is not appropriate, just wait till it is HIS presidential library.

You run out of fingers and toes?
I can’t count that high
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.
Do a word count of the transcript and divide by 2.
Transcript here, read only if you want to jumpstart a vomit.
You are brave!
HELP, my head hurts!! LOL
At least I didn’t go blind. I am blessed.
have to listen
would make my
You are the poster child of the “New Freeper!”
Someone will but it won’t be me! I can only imagine and don’t want to hear!
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).
Carl Sagan can’t count that high.
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.
1143 words (did not read speech, just used microsoft works)
