The ‘Me’ Show: Obama Mentions Himself 199 Times in his Latest Speech Vowing Unilateral Action


Editor’s Note: Not so sure it’s ‘ok’ to mention yourself that much when you’re the leader of a nation. If this doesn’t show how conceited the President is, what will?

“I’m just telling the truth now,” Obama told the crowd. “I don’t have to run for office again, so I can just let her rip. And I want to assure you, I’m really not that partisan of a guy.”
