Big League Politics’ Peter D’Abrosca: Obama Refers to Himself 467 Times During Weekend Speech
Peter D’Abrosca notes that the former president is still as obsessed with himself as he always was.
Former President Obama spoke to a group of students about leadership this weekend in Berlin, Germany. D-Abrosca writes:
The speech, supposedly about “community leadership and civic engagement,” turned out to be an autobiographical rundown of the life and times of Barack Obama. Some things never change. He referred to himself a jaw-dropping 467 times during the speech.
The fine folks at Grabien broke down the number of “I’s,” “Me’s,” and “My’s,” and came up with the following final tally:
“I” — 312
“Me” — 33
“My” — 43
“I’d” — 9
“I’m” — 61
“Myself” — 9
Obama was promoting his own Obama Foundation, whose broad mission is “to inspire, empower, and connect people to change their world.”
He gave the audience an not-so-brief update on life since leaving the presidency.
