    Speaking in Sandusky, Ohio on July 5, President Barack Obama used
    the first-person pronouns “I” and “me” a combined 117 times in a speech
    that lasted about 25 minutes and 32 seconds.
    Obama used “I” 98 times and “me” 19 times, according to a transcript of the speech posted by the White House. A videotape of the speech posted on YouTube shows that Obama spoke for about 25-and-a-half minutes.

    During this speech, Obama used “I” or “me” approximately once every 13.09 seconds.

    comparison for those who say i'm one sided

    Romney used “I” 47 times and “me” 8 times. During the just over 18
    minutes that Romney spoke at Salem

    I wonder how many times he used "bush" and "my predecessor".

    I feel charming,
    Oh, so charming
    It's alarming how charming I feel!
    And so pretty
    That I hardly can believe I'm real.

    I feel pretty,
    Oh, so pretty
    That the city should give me its key.
    A committee
    Should be organized to honor me. :bleh:

    Ya crack me up Raven. :p

    Only you can come up with songs so fitting of threads. I'll bet most of 'em zip right by the other members here.

    There's only four words that I'd like to hear from Obie.

    "I take full responsibility" for something he was actually responsible for.
