Watch Obama Refer To Himself 171 Times During A Single Townhall

The narcissist in chief is back at it again …

Via Grabien:

Regular readers know we’ve taken to observing President Obama’s habit of frequently referencing himself during his speeches. We thought his address at the Democratic National Convention — where he reflected upon his eight years in office — would likely represent the pinnacle of this rhetorical tic.

If only.

While speaking Wednesday afternoon to students in Laos, Obama blew away his past records for self-references. During a 72 minute townhall, Obama somehow managed to reference himself an astonishing 171 times.

Obama mentioned — repeatedly — how he’s the first president to visit Laos. He spoke at length about his affinity for Asia, and about his upbringing in Indonesia. He spoke of his wife’s work in nutrition, and his children going away for school. He spoke about his plans to vacation in Laos after leaving office. And so much more … about Obama.

Note that in past tabulations we included — in addition to “me,” “myself,” “I,” and “my” — his use of “we” when he was referring to his administration. This time around we excluded plural pronouns, as the above montage would simply go on too long. We did, however, include his references to his wife and other family members.
