A projected 15 minute speech with an average of 6 "I's" per minute yeilds 90 in total. That's my over/under line on how many times Obama makes Syria about him and his foreign policy prowess. I could be way, way under, of course.

What's your guess?

I really think we should have some sort of competition, but I ain't counting b/c I would have to watch and pay attention.

No you are not wrong, I am saying at least 100. And where did 15 minutes come from. This buffoon can speak on peanut shells on the floor for 60 minutes.

I had heard 15 minutes, but then again, when did Obama ever speak for that short amount of time? There is so much bravo sierra to get out.

Wouldn't it have to be the "previous, previous" administration?

WAYYYY under, and he will stutter on I more than once. Each counts, as it is a narcissistic thing and not a speech impediment.

He's definitely not the guy you want to be behind in the drive thru at MacDonalds.
Link Posted: 9/10/2013 3:00:25 PM EST
Not many "I" words tonight, it's going to be all about finger pointing and how he was undercut by the treasonous conservative elements.

Can't bear to watch, though, just can't bear to watch.

Are we counting "my" as in my military, my decision, my shit don't stink, as I or will my be separate? I would suggest a drinking game of some sort, but let me be clear. We'd drink ourselves to death.

"I wanted to strike Syria to protect America's interest and security to secure the chemical weapons... However he American people and Congress voted not to.". "the loss of face to the nation is irreparable, and unless we Strie now, we will no longer be the greatest nation on Earth."

"Let me be clear... (stern look into camera followed by dramatic pause) I blame the international red line, the UN, Congress and the average citizen for failing to support my goals of preventing further loss of life of innocent Syrian children...". "those innocent children could be my sons and daughters... And yours"

Something along those lines I am sure since he always has to blame someone else when he does not get his way

How sad is it that Russia pulled his punk card.

Make no mistake.

I generally hate watching Obama speak, but this should be fun to watch.

Yes...I think "me", "my" and "I" should all count. Good point. Make the total now 140.
Link Posted: 9/10/2013 3:07:36 PM EST
focus like a laser on jobs.............


Link Posted: 9/10/2013 3:08:13 PM EST
106
Link Posted: 9/10/2013 3:09:10 PM EST
I'm going with no more than 110, no less than 48.
Link Posted: 9/10/2013 3:10:07 PM EST

Don't care.

Fuck him.
Link Posted: 9/10/2013 3:13:37 PM EST
When is he speaking?
Anyone got a link?

How the hell can he still be going after Syria?
Didn't they surrender their weapons?

So now he is advocating for attacking not only a soverign nation, but an unarmed one as well?
And why do I know that his liberal idiot minions will follow him right through the gate of hell.

Or the past 13 years.
Link Posted: 9/10/2013 3:37:55 PM EST
You read my mind!

I was thinking of posting a drinking game for the speech, every time he says "I" the viewer does a shot.

I counted 41 including his referring to himself in the third person twice. But he sure used "we" a lot. Should have counted that too since its the pronoun version of "common sense"

How many times in the first 5 minutes did he drop his hand on the podium in front of the mic while he was speaking?
Link Posted: 9/10/2013 4:51:13 PM EST
So did Obama say "it must be war" or what?
