Obama talks about Himself at Inouye Funeral 63 Times

President Barack Obama used the funeral for Hawaii senator Daniel Inouye to talk about himself. In the short 1,600 word speech, Obama used the word “my” 21 times, “me” 12 times, and “I” 30 times.

Obama_InouyeObama’s speech discussed how Inouye had gotten him interested in politics. “Danny was elected to the U.S. Senate when I was two years old,” he said.

Speaking to the audience at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., Obama talked about his family and their vacations. “Now, even though my mother and grandparents took great pride that they had voted for him, I confess that I wasn’t paying much attention to the United States Senate at the age of four or five or six.  It wasn’t until I was 11 years old that I recall even learning what a U.S. senator was, or it registering, at least.  It was during my summer vacation with my family — my first trip to what those of us in Hawaii call the Mainland,” said Obama.

But he isn’t done…. He will attend at Inouye”s “low Key” Memorial service in Hawaii as well, preventing many from attending

The event will also involve heightened security measures after the White House announced Saturday that President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will attend. (Read about the increased measures here.) And as a result, very few member of the public will get a chance to pay their final respects in person.
