Ed Morrisey reads Dear Leader’s Address to the nation’s young skulls full of mush and once finds more evidence of Obama’s Narcissistic Personality Disorder
Although the Department of Education has shed the lesson plans to pledge unyielding support for Dear Leader (the teacher’s unions have that covered anyway), his speech contains:
– 56 iterations of “I”
– 19 iterations of “school”
– 10 iterations of “education”
– 8 iterations of “responsibility”
– 7 iterations of “country”
– 5 iterations each of “parents”, “teachers”
– 3 iterations of “nation”
In other words, Barack Obama referenced himself more than school, education, responsibility, country/nation, parents, and teachers combined.
Lefties are saying, “Hey, Bush and Reagan made speeches to schoolchildren, so what’s the big deal.” This is the big deal: Reagan and Bush never cultivated the trappings of a fascist personality cult the way Obama has; the rallies in sports stadiums with thousands chanting party slogans, the children singing hymns to the dear leader, a fawning mass media made into a relentless propaganda machine for the regime. To anyone who isn’t a glassy-eyed cultist, all of this seems profoundly un-American. Obama has never told his followers to knock it off. Quite the contrary, he acts as though he feels entitled to it. The man is devoid of humility.
