Fox News tracks Obama's excessive use of the first person ("I")in his speeches and asks "why?"
I'll tell you why. It's because many people still think that Obama is the second coming. More importantly, Obama thinks this of himself.
Ironically, Theodore Roosevelt, an egomaniac in his own right--just read his autobiography)--gave a speech (it may have been his inaugural address)and refrained completely from referring to himself. There was not one "I," "me," "my," or "mine."
The reason is simple. Theodore Roosevelt argued from conviction (though he wasn't always right). Barack Obama, on the other hand, argues from celebrity.
