I, Barack: Obama References Himself Twelve Times in Latest Fund-raising Email
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 07/17/2014 7:45:35 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

But enough about me. Let's talk about how you feel about me . . . Maybe Barack Obama should modify his famous New Age-y line, uttered after the 2008 Super Tuesday results, to read "I am the one I have been waiting for." In recent times, it's become an entertaining parlor game to count the number of self references in President Obama's public statements.

The latest opportunity to play the game comes via a fund-raising email the prez sent out this morning. Defiantly entitled "I Won't Apologize," the short message contains by my count no fewer than 11 self-references [12 if you count the URL for the fund-raising link]—a self-adoring assortment of I, I'm, I'll and me.

More here.

Why would a man with such a sorry record think so highly of himself? Ping to Today show list.

Maybe the answer to your question is because.......... his adoring fans still tell him he is fantastic.

It reminds me of this quote “Do not accept your dog’s admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful”.

We can change “dog’” to “libtard”!

I am not surprised at his self-adoration. He is a narcissist.

The Left has most control over MUCH of the media and it perpetrated this fraud on a gullible and stupid public.

Or, as Vito Corleone spoke of Philip Tattaglia: "He's a pimp."
Short, sweet and to the point: the real Obama.

Is there inherent wrong in an individual using the first person when speaking? The Office of President is singular. Let’s check the statistics and see how many times prior presidents used the first person in their speeches. The problem isn’t so much that Obama refers to himself and his intentions so frequently, but that he and his intentions are misguided at best.

Gangsters were too smart to put ANY faith in him or give credence to ANYTHING he said or did.

Obama’s self references are pathological. Other presidents somehow managed to talk about other people. For instance, when Bush eulogized Reagan, he spoke not about himself but about Reagan.

By contrast, when Obama ‘eulogized’ Daniel Inouye, he spoke almost completely about himself. Read the transcript sometime. It’s all about Obama taking a vacation as a boy, and running around to see if the motel had an ice maker & a swimming pool. It was about Obama realizing that a boy of mixed race had a chance in America. It was so bad, even the libs noticed—& I mean the moonbats. That’s saying something.

One only need compare the titles of Reagan’s and Clinton’s autobiographies to see the contrasting use between a patriot and a narcissist— “An American Life” vs “My Life.” I wonder what Obama’s will be called?

I think the best way to get rid of this clown is for him to have a narcissistic meltdown. Unfortunately, some cities may get nuked while this is going on before he can be dragged away and locked up.

President Bush seldom, if ever, used the word “I” in his speeches. He was always talking about the soldiers, or the heroes, or the team. He was one of the most self-effacing men to ever hold the office of President.
