For those of you who have ever heard an Obama speech, you are familiar with the words, I, me, mine and my. No publicist could pushy Obama more than he does without suffering from a severe case of embarrassment.
Obama regularly refers to himself 100 to 200 times but, recently appearing in Berlin to give a lecture, he took it to a whole new level when he referred to himself no less than 467 times. But, you have to understand that it’s absolutely necessary for Obama to tell you how truly wonderful he is because otherwise, how would you know?
Certainly not for his lack of good achievements.
Say it ain’t so, O. When it comes to giving speeches, Barack Obama is the presidential equivalent of a vanity license plate.
America’s 44th commander in chief has a reputation for talking about himself; his fondness for using first-person pronouns and taking credit is well-documented.
But even by Obama’s self-centered standards, his Saturday lecture in Berlin took the cake and ate it too. According to American Thinker, the man referred to himself no fewer than 467 times, articulating more than 300 instances of “I.”
Not that we should be surprised. Indeed, Obama’s maiden State of the Union speech nine years ago — wherein he voiced “Me” or “I” almost 100 times, according to The Daily Wire — was a harbinger of the emerging ego.
By contrast, Trump mentioned himself only 26 times in his initial SOTU address. And yet, the current president’s naysayers think of him as the braggart (or trumpeter, if you will).
However, his predecessor clearly has the shameless numbers on his side.
