‘I,’ ‘Me,’ ‘My’—Obama Uses First
Person Singular 199 Times in Speech
Vowing Unilateral Action

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Original Article

Not counting instances when he quoted a letter from a citizen or cited dialogue from a movie, President Barack Obama used the first person singular--including the pronouns "I" and "me" and the adjective "my"--199 times in a speech he delivered Thursday vowing to use unilateral executive action to achieve his policy goals that Congress would not enact through the normal, constitutional legislative process. “It is lonely, me just doing stuff,” Obama said at the speech in Austin, Texas, according to the official transcript and video posted on the White House website. “I’m just telling the truth now,” Obama told the

FTA: “It is lonely, me just doing stuff,”

This is the PRESIDENT of the United States speaking???

I know, he does it all the time, but...really?

I cannot think of any past president, (with exception of Clinton during the finger-wagging incident) who is so embarrassing.

Thank God he was not involved in writing the Declaration of Independence.

Me, myself, and I are all very, very tired of trying to compete for the world’s recognition of our supreme superiority with the President of the United States because he is swooping up all of the inflated, vain senses of grandiosity and self-admiration that are lying around and is keeping them in total for himself – just another example of his non-empathetic selfishness.

Okay, I have to say this: I am really tired of the poor grammar from supposedly educated people. Lawyers, in particular, must use correct grammar in their documents.

“It is lonely, me just doing stuff”. Obama´s poor grammar is, unfortunately, setting an example for young people that it is acceptable to use poor grammar.

I know, I know, if he said it correctly, it might sound stilted; however, the use of the pronoun "me" when the nominative case "I" or the possessive case "my" should be used is driving me insane. Also the pronoun "my" is a possessive pronoun. It is not an adjective - ever! Sentences with "my" show possession - "This is my house. Isn´t my new car beautiful! "My doing the work is what I´m paid to do."

The pronoun "me" is never the subject of a sentence - one does not say "Me went to the movie ´America´ last night. The problem seems to arise when another actor is inserted into the sentence: "Me and my brother went to the movie." No "me" didn´t. For any lofos reading this, one should say "My brother and I went to the movie." Does that sound stilted? Always put the other "actor" first and it is easy to use the correct pronoun.

Sorry, folks I have a hard time as a former English teacher accepting the new lows in our language. Evidently schools are not teaching English grammar any more.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Sometimes I mention to my students that a rough and reliable measure of egotism (self-absorption) is to count the number of self-references a person makes across settings and people. By that measure, Mr. Obama is highly accomplished and gets an A+++.

(Some of his behavior might be interpreted similarly: on a visit to Buckingham Palace, Mr. Obama gave the queen a recording of his speeches.)

The West´s coverage of the African Ebola outbreak-- now claiming more than 600 lives-- has focused extensively on the facts: the symptoms, victims, and the potential of it spreading past the continent. In the four affected countries, however, the media has written everything from warnings to avoid witch doctors to urgent calls for prayer. In Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Nigeria-- the four countries to have registered individuals contaminated with Ebola since the outbreak began in March, the media has focused on various localized aspects of the disease. Some have focused on warning readers how to avoid the Ebola virus

RICHMOND — Arrangements were made for Robert F. McDonnell to drive a Ferrari. His daughter was given passes to the Ritz Carlton in Tampa. A boat was made available for a McDonnell family vacation. The third day of the corruption trial of the former Virginia governor and his wife, Maureen, opened with an assistant to a dietary supplement executive testifying to a laundry list of lavish gifts she helped arrange for the first family on behalf of Jonnie R.

At least 700 cars remained trapped Wednesday inside two parking structures at UCLA after a 93-year-old water main ruptured, spewing up to 10 million gallons of water onto the campus and nearby streets. Using an online registration system to track vehicles in the university´s lots, campus officials have determined that nearly 400 of the marooned cars belong to students, almost 300 to campus staff, more than a dozen to faculty and about 40 to visitors. Officials on Wednesday said up to 300 of the vehicles were partially submerged in water and several hundred more were damaged. On Tuesday, firefighters helped

In the video of the event that streamed on the White House website, it was a bit hard to hear what the woman was screaming, but it appeared to be something along the lines of “Jesus is the Lord of Israel.” “I’m sorry, what are you hollering about?” the president said casually, letting the heckler repeat their message for the crowd. “I believe in God,” he said in response. “Thanks for the prayer.

Whip Hoyer predicts few Dems

An insignificant number of Democrats will side with Republicans in favor of the GOP´s proposal addressing the southern border crisis, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) predicted Wednesday. Democratic leaders are already whipping against the $659 million package, largely because of a provision making it easier for authorities to deport the thousands of Central American migrants who have crossed the border in recent months. That change has been endorsed by at least three House Democrats — Reps. Henry Cuellar (Texas), Ron Barber (Ariz.) and Collin Peterson (Minn.) — but Hoyer is anticipating that few others in his caucus will back

In the wake of Speaker of the House John Boehner’s impending lawsuit against President Obama, CBS This Morning did their best to minimize its merits and instead promote Democratic efforts to raise money off of impeachment. On Wednesday, July 30, co-anchor Gayle King introduced a report by Nancy Cordes by highlighting how “Democrats are using the lawsuit debate to raise campaign cash and now the White House says it´s worried about impeachment.” [See video below.] Cordes began her story by peddling Democratic talking points and explained how “Democrats argue if Republicans are willing to sue the president, who´s to say they

A statement put out today by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease. In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to

Like many on the right, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer is politically opposed to impeaching President Barack Obama. But on Tuesday, he declared that legally, the rumored White House order granting amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants “would be an impeachable offense” — and Obama’s talk of impeachment may be a way to preempt that pushback. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’s Bret Baier on a panel with The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard and Fox News contributor Juan Williams. The group discussed the impeachment buzz swirling around Washington, which most observers agree is being ginned up by Democrats eager for

The Romster has been blogging about a fantastic vacation he’s taken his grandchildren on across the southwest (go there before the barbarians cover it in cable cars) and it sounds much nicer than the holidays I took as a kid. “All totaled, we hiked over 50 miles,” he writes. [Snip] But is he right to throw away a third bid so easily? Critics may laugh at the thought of “Romney 2016: the Last Stand” and journalists may cringe at the potential boredom. Yet it’s not such a dumb idea. After all, the polls show

Israel unleashed its heaviest bombardment in its three-week-old campaign against Hamas in Gaza on Tuesday as the Obama administration battled the growing perception among Israelis that Secretary of State John F. Kerry is a hapless bumbler in search of a cosmetic truce. Diplomatic efforts remained stalled despite a death toll that Palestinian officials said rose above 1,200 on Tuesday. The shadowy leader of the Hamas military wing said his group will not cease fire until an economic embargo is ended and other demands are met. After his latest round of mediation failed to achieve a cease-fire, Mr. Kerry has been

Javier Bardem did not hold back on his feelings of disgust regarding the escalating violence in the Israeli-Palestine conflict. In an open letter sent out to the Spanish media over the weekend, he called Israel’s actions against Gaza a “genocide” and said he was outraged and ashamed by the "brutality" of the attacks. “In the horror happening right now in Gaza there is NO place for distance or neutrality,” Bardem wrote in the letter. “It’s a way of occupation and extermination waged against a people with no means, confined in a minimum territory, with no water, and where hospitals, ambulances and children

Washington – During an awards ceremony at the White House, President Barack Obama whispered in the ear of superstar musician Linda Ronstadt that he once had a crush on her. The President admitted to the crowd afterwards that, "I told Linda Ronstadt I had a crush on her back in the day " Ronstadt joined Obama on stage, along with 11 other recipients of the 2013 National Medal of Arts. No word from the singer of such hits as "You´re no good," "Desperado," "It´s so easy," and "Blue Bayou," on what she said back to the President. Obama also thanked

Malaysian politician says that including dogs in opening ceremony was ´disrespectful to Malaysia and Muslims´. The Commonwealth Games, which opened last week in Glasgow, Scotland in the presence of the Queen, was, like all sporting events these days, ushered into existence to the accompaniment of a lavish and visually impressive opening ceremony. But amidst the dancing mechanical giants and gay kisses, the organizers also sought to celebrate Scottishness by having each team led out by Scottie dogs wearing tartan coats embroidered with the name of the team. Social media, predictably, fell in love with the doggies, however now political and

President Obama demanded that Israel agree to a one-sided cease-fire during a heated phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a report aired on Israeli TV Tuesday. Both leaders quickly denounced the purported transcript of their private discussion as fake. But the TV channel that obtained it, state-run Channel 1, stood by its account. In one bitter exchange, Obama declared that Qatar and Turkey — Hamas’ biggest international supporters — would mediate with the terrorists on Israel’s behalf, according to the TV channel. “I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators,” the president

You can understand President Obama´s current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall´s midterm election -- in a single word. And that word is "competence". Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to "Heck of a job, Brownie" and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question. Almost six years on from

Geraldo Rivera hates it whenever any one around him refers to people illegally crossing the border as “illegals.” On Monday’s edition of Outnumbered he challenged FNC’s Ainsley Earhardt when she dared to use that phrase in his presence. Rivera barked: “Every time you say ‘illegals,’ it’s like fingernails on a black board!” Well Earhardt, along with a few of her co-panelists, fought back against Rivera’s insistence that the border-crossers were “law-abiding.” (video after the jump) The following is the relevant exchange as it was aired on the July 28 edition of FNC’s Outnumbered: Andrea Tantaros: Ainsley how does this move,

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee angered his Facebook fans after endorsing Sen. Lamar Alexander against conservative state Representative Joe Carr last month. Carr has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham for the August 7th primary. And Carr has been relentlessly hammering Alexander for voting for the Senate´s amnesty bill even after law enforcement officials warned Alexander that it would lure more illegal immigrants from Central America. Nearly every one of close to 450 comments beneath Huckabee´s announcement on his Facebook page blasts Huckabee for supporting Alexander. One Huckabee fan said, "We

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School. It began five years ago with an unexpected windfall of stimulus money from Washington, D.C., and good intentions to help the district’s students,
