Narcissist-in-chief can’t let occassion of dead Senator go to waste [Darleen Click]
In 1,600 word speech at the funeral for Senator Daniel Inouye, Obama mentions himself 63 times
President Barack Obama used the funeral for Hawaii senator Daniel Inouye to talk about himself. In the short 1,600 word speech, Obama used the word “my” 21 times, “me” 12 times, and “I” 30 times.
Obama’s speech discussed how Inouye had gotten him interested in politics. “Danny was elected to the U.S. Senate when I was two years old,” he said.
Speaking to the audience at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., Obama talked about his family and their vacations. “Now, even though my mother and grandparents took great pride that they had voted for him, I confess that I wasn’t paying much attention to the United States Senate at the age of four or five or six. It wasn’t until I was 11 years old that I recall even learning what a U.S. senator was, or it registering, at least. It was during my summer vacation with my family — my first trip to what those of us in Hawaii call the Mainland,” said Obama.
Obama rambles on about his vacation, about Howard Johnsons and ice machines and being “a young boy with a white mom, a black father, raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”
How nice for Inouye’s family to be regaled by Obama’s self-serving monologue while the Senator’s corpse lays close by.
Obama’s world is one of how the whole of creation is shrunk down to his own personal frame.
This isn’t going to get any better.
