Trump Said “I” 36 Times In Address… Now Look At Obama’s First Congressional Speech

In President Donald Trump’s Tuesday congressional address, he referred to himself half as many times as Obama did in his congressional address.

That should say a lot.

The Washington Examiner reports:

President Trump planned to point to himself during his first speech to a joint session of Congress at a much lower rate than former President Barack Obama did in his first address in February 2009, roughly half as often.

Trump used the word “I” 36 times during his speech at the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday evening.

During Obama’s first such address eight years earlier, he said “I” a total of 68 times.

This was one of the very best speeches I have ever heard and President Trumps night to truly shine. He was truly amazing. His words came directly from his heart. Thank you Mr. President. His Bless you and God Bless America.

On a scale of 1 to 100, I give our President at 110 in tonight's speech. A GRAND SLAM if there ever was one.

Amen....I too give him 110%.  Very inspiring, encouraging and patriotic.  America has hope again!!  Bless him God. 

I agree with you totally, Jim. I never thought to count the number of times that "I" was said in Trump's speech. I appreciated the essence of what he said & did not have the time to count the number of times that he said "I".

I can hardly stomach looking at Obama. Trump is a true champion for America.

Happy to see/hear Uncle Scam has disappeared with the Obama wind and we now have the real thing: a President we can be proud of.  All good things come to those who wait.  Thank you, God.  The only thing that kept the speech from being perfect was when the camera landed on Pelosi's screwed up face.

Hahahah  Pat  that was the best part!  Hope she gets to see it herself.  

     What a wonderful tribute to a fallen warrior and for his widow!  Bringing to light the suffering families who lost loved ones to the illegal immigrant situation was also poignant. God bless and guide you , Mr. President! Finally, may the inner city kids begin to get the education they need and deserve.

Agree with Mr O'Connor.  Best presidential speech since Reagan. The Democrats made absolute asses of themselves, which for them is an easy task.

This speech that  Our President Trump gave, was the best I have heard ever in my lifetime. He spoke on every topic that I could think of with great passion. I was so proud of him tonight. The Dems were just disgraceful and acted like little children. There were moments of tears. God Bless him.

I loved the great speech too!

But I'm dismayed at folk's return to partisanship politics. Obama was not just a president, he was trying to close the communist agenda. So yes, Trump's speech sounds good relative to peer propaganda by Obama.

We have to keep fighting the media and the leftist agenda.

The best in books to make every conservative start thinking in new ways about America and the world being controlled by the Obama Administrations AND Republicans and Democrats.  Some surprises are in store for those who look!




Suppose the earth and its inhabitants exist in order to identify just what causes mankind continually to suffer so many troublesome problems and afflictions.

At present, most persons decide to act on whatever happens with their thoughts. But doing so puts them in competition with one of the creator's natural laws first identified by Richard Wetherill.


The answer is not complicated. People must stop basing their behavior on their personal thinking. Instead they have to act on the creator's thoughts, here being described in the English language as rational, honest, and morally right.

No longer should people reason from their concepts of good and evil, right and wrong, likes and dislikes, or whatever else comes to mind. Instead, mankind must think the creator's thoughts. That enables them successfully to do what is rational, honest, and morally right.

That may seem incredible until understood. But, consider that it is the way that mankind can escape the death penalty everybody has been paying since the days that people were created.

Join the survivors who have stopped their personal thinking. They now base their behavior on the creator's guiding thoughts to act in a way that is rational, honest, and morally right.
