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.
What do you think? Was this a good way for Obama to make the occasion personal and meaningful? or was he detracting from the person the funeral was for?
