OBAMA TALKS ABOUT HIMSELF 1200 TIMES IN 41 SPEECHES

Dan Gainor, Fox News - In just 41 speeches so far this year, Obama has talked about himself nearly 1,200 times - 1,198 to be exact. (That breaks down to 1,121 "I"s and just 77 "me"s.) . . . Martha Joynt Kumar, a political science professor at Towson University in Maryland, said Obama has had nearly three times the number of interviews either Bush or Bill Clinton had at this time in his presidency. The New York Times Caucus blog reported: "As of his seven-month in office mark in August, he had done 114 interviews, compared to 37 by former President George W. Bush and 41 by former president Bill Clinton."

I've noticed Obama's excessive presence on camera. At work we have a big-screen TV I pass when going to the restroom. CNN is usually on. And Obama is pontificating on there a significant percentage of the time I've passed by.
I often wonder: when does Obama actually work? When can he meet with his advisers? When can he read the reports he must be getting? More than likely he is just a talking head, reading material written for him. Is there time for anything else?

Actually, I don't watch Fox, but I'm tired of Barack's lying skinny ass on my tv.
