Using first person pronouns in a speech about what he was going to personally do.

Subby, you show your bias with your article that you pulled out of a journal you like. You think it proves your point that you have in your mind? You should not be surprised if your peers think you are stupid.

Hmm. 12 uses of "you" or "your" in 3 sentences. What's the 2nd person singular equivalent of narcissist?

He's been called that since the beginning. As if anyone who wakes up one day and decides to convince millions of people to put him or her in charge of the country could be anything but a narcissist. It's kinda of in the job description.

From the first part of St. Reagans Evil Empire speach-

Reverend clergy all, Senator Hawkins, distinguished members of the Florida congressional delegation, and all of you:
I can't tell you how you have warmed my heart with your welcome. I'm delighted to be here today.
Those of you in the National Association of Evangelicals are known for your spiritual and humanitarian work. And I would be especially remiss if I didn't discharge right now one personal debt of gratitude. Thank you for your prayers. Nancy and I have felt their presence many times in many ways. And believe me, for us they've made all the difference.
The other day in the East Room of the White House at a meeting there, someone asked me whether I was aware of all the people out there who were praying for the President. And I had to say, "Yes, I am. I've felt it. I believe in intercessionary prayer."
But I couldn't help but say to that questioner after he'd asked the question that -- or at least say to them that if sometimes when he was praying he got a busy signal, it was just me in there ahead of him.
[Laughter]
I think I understand how Abraham Lincoln felt when he said, "I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go."
From the joy and the good feeling of this conference, I go to a political reception.
[Laughter]
Now, I don't know why, but that bit of scheduling reminds me of a story -- [laughter] -- which I'll share with you.
An evangelical minister and a politician arrived at Heaven's gate one day together. And St. Peter, after doing all the necessary formalities, took them in hand to show them where their quarters would be. And he took them to a small, single room with a bed, a chair, and a table and said this was for the clergyman. And the politician was a little worried about what might be in store for him. And he couldn't believe it then when St. Peter stopped in front of a beautiful mansion with lovely grounds, many servants, and told him that these would be his quarters.
And he couldn't help but ask, he said, "But wait, how -- there's something wrong -- how do I get this mansion while that good and holy man only gets a single room?" And St. Peter said, "You have to understand how things are up here. We've got thousands and thousands of clergy. You're the first politician who ever made it."
[Laughter]
But I don't want to contribute to a stereotype.
[Laughter]
So, I tell you there are a great many God-fearing, dedicated, noble men and women in public life, present company included. And yes, we need your help to keep us ever mindful of the ideas and the principles that brought us into the public arena in the first place. The basis of those ideals and principles is a commitment to freedom and personal liberty that, itself, is grounded in the much deeper realization that freedom prospers only where the blessings of God are avidly sought and humbly accepted.
The American experiment in democracy rests on this insight. Its discovery was the great triumph of our Founding Fathers, voiced by William Penn when he said, "If we will not be governed by God, we must be governed by tyrants."
Explaining the inalienable rights of men, Jefferson said, "The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time."
And it was George Washington who said that "of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports."
And finally, that shrewdest of all observers of American democracy, Alexis de Tocqueville, put it eloquently after he had gone on a search for the secret of America's greatness and genius -- and he said, "Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the greatness and the genius of America. America is good. And if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great."
Well, I'm pleased to be here today with you who are keeping America great by keeping her good. Only through your work and prayers and those of millions of others can we hope to survive this perilous century and keep alive this experiment in liberty -- this last, best hope of man.
I want you to know that this administration is motivated by a political philosophy that sees the greatness of America in you, her people, and in your families, churches, neighborhoods, communities -- the institutions that foster and nourish values like concern for others and respect for the rule of law under God.



I count 24 I's or me's in that short segment. But we are talking about Reagan, so he probably forgot most of them as soon as he said them.

djkutch: Obama sounds like he's some sort of "decider".



now, that was your frat rat george: born on 3rd base and thinks he hit a triple.

the reason Obama uses I, me, mine is because he is pretty much on his own for doing anything constructive for the Useless States of 'murica since the CONgress has been bought and paid for by Big Business and have been instructed to block anything the black guy tries to do for the People and the Nation.  after all, 'murica is about the Wealthy now.  and f*ck the rest of you.

you were close, though.

No its been out there since at least 2009
http://chronicle.com/blogs/linguafranca/2012/05/15/lying-about-langu ag e/
The most striking is probably George Will's repeated assertion that President Obama's egotism is revealed in the extraordinarily high frequency of the first-person singular pronoun in his speeches. Mark Liberman has published about 17 Language Log posts on this topic since early June 2009 (this post includes a list up to 31 March 2012; Will's latest and most extreme assertion is discussed here).

Counting occurrences of I, me, my, and myself in presidential speeches and news conferences, Liberman rapidly discovered that President Obama uses these pronouns far less than his predecessors. George W. Bush's speeches used the first-person singular pronouns 60 to 70 percent more than Obama does; Bill Clinton used them about 50 percent more.

Yet pundit after pundit has repeated George Will's lie. ...


The derpers could just use the truth (Obama uses first person less than his predecessors) to claim that Obama is impersonal and refuses to take responsibility unlike the more approachable GWB and Reagan.
