Hollywood A-listers and the mainstream media are swooning over Obama’s lengthy “farewell” speech in Washington, D.C. last night. But others noticed that the president referred to himself 75 times during the remarks.
The Daily Caller reported, Obama heavily promoted the speech, penning a blog post about it and appearing in a promotional video in the days leading up to the address.
Obama said “I” 33 times during the speech, “my” 20 times, “me” 10 times, and “I’m” or “I’ve” 12 times. The president made a habit of focusing large chunks of his speeches on himself during his eight years in office.
Last July, for example, he mentioned himself 45 times over the course of a speech given at a speech for the slain Dallas police officers. In his blog post promoting the speech, Obama encouraged Americans to tune in “because, for me, it’s always been about you.”
