    TIMES OBAMA SAY “I”?

    He is the President.


    GOP take every word Obama say, dissect it and make it stink. Counting the times the said “I” when talking about Obama’s demise? I listen to the documentary and I heard “we” and only heard “I” when he was asked a personal question. He was not the only one involved in making the decision or any decision as a matter of fact. Congress make more decisions then Obama do. Anytime Obama say “I” he is narcissistic egotistical for power? Every thing he does or say is for his own hunger for power? RRWE believe ever time Obama goes to the bathroom he should give someone else credit for it.

    How many times do we hear Romney say “Obama” in his campaign speeches? Always what Obama did or did not do. We all know what Obama did or did not do. We want to hear what Romney is going to do, how and when. But all he say is; “Take everything Obama did and I will do the opposite.” Brilliant.:cuckoo:

    Obama's demise? Yeah I confuse Obama with Osama all the time too. I agree that it's often hard to distinguish between the two. Which has done more harm to this country? I say it's obama.

    "We" includes you. Still presenting in the first person, I think previous Presidents referred to our military as "them". Giving "them" credit for risking their lives, I didn't see Obama in danger at any point in the Osama take down.

    There. I added the red in the hope others might be able to figure out what the hell you're trying to say. Maybe someone else will volunteer spelling, grammar, and punctuation tips.

    "I, Me, Mine" should be his 2012 campaign song.

    Of course, when he talks about his economy, it will be "Their's, his, Not Mine."

    And the left does the same thing.
    They did it with Reagan and Bush Jr.
    They did it with Bush Sr., but in that case the majority of Americans did not like Bush Sr.. That's why he was a one term President.

    I found a great study on the use of the pronoun "I" by President Obama. The author of this piece actually picked from 12 Presidential speeches at the CIA. These were notable speeches over a span of 52 years and then he ran the numbers.


    First chart shows the number of times a President used "I" in his speech to the CIA

    [​IMG]

    The author then gives excellent quotes from the speeches. Then this. He analyses the number of words to give a true comparison.

    [​IMG]

    Then he puts the two charts together.

    [​IMG]

    Leads to this:.

    [​IMG]

    And then he makes a fabulous summary.

    So rather than a conclusion, perhaps a caution to the one who is increasingly parodied as “The One”:

    When you say “I”, I hope, for the good of the nation, that you are thinking of “we”.

    We rely on it.


    More at link. Quite fascinating.

    When Romney becomes the official nominee, we will hear much more of his plans to reverse the economy to prosperity and jobs for those who still want them. And if the GOP has control of both Houses, Romney will accomplish his goals in a short period of time.
