Butch Jackson has nothing better to do when it rains, and he can't fish or play golf, but to do things like counting words in speeches. He loves to count "I's" In George Bush's address for example, after the capture of Saddam, he counted one "I".
George W. Bush speech after capture of Saddam Hussein:
"The success of yesterday's mission is a tribute to our men and women now serving in Iraq. The operation was based on the superb work of intelligence analysts who found the dictator's footprints in a vast country. The operation was carried out with skill and precision by a brave fighting force. Our servicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many dangers in the hunt for members of the fallen regime, and in their effort to bring hope and freedom to the Iraqi people. Their work continues, and so do the risks. Today, on behalf of the nation, I thank the members of our Armed Forces and I (oops) congratulate 'em."
Butch then contrasted Bush's speech with our current President's bloviating about his brave killing of Usama bin Laden.
Barack Hussein Obama speech, Sunday, May 1, 2011:
"And so shortly after taking office, I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against al Qaeda, even as we continued our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat his network. Then, last August, after years of painstaking work by our intelligence community, I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread to ground. I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan. And finally, last week, I determined that we had enough intelligence to take action, and authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan."
When Butch reported to the Cafe his word counting results, he knew it was just the kind of thing that would blow Billy Roy Michum's hat right off. It did, "When some little people like us talk like this we just get classified as ass holes, and everybody moves on. But when the leader of the free world talks like this it is way scary. This guy is a very sick person. My book at home 'What's ailing you?' calls this,' Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Although individuals with NPD are often ambitious and capable, the inability to tolerate setbacks, disagreements or criticism, along with lack of empathy, make it difficult for such individuals to work cooperatively with others or to maintain long-term professional achievements. (Do tell!) With narcissistic personality disorder, the individual's self-perceived fantastic grandiosity is typically not commensurate with his or her real accomplishments. (No shit!)
The exploitativeness, sense of entitlement, lack of empathy, disregard for others, and constant need for attention inherent in NPD adversely affect interpersonal relationships' (And in extreme cases can destroy nations).
The Puppet President joins a list of famous people such as dictators Hitler, Stalin, and other Hubbard locals such as Marlon Brando, Eva Peron, and of course, Simon Cowell (formerly of American Idol)."
I will think about it, I will ponder it, I will act on it, I will warn others, I, I,..............I.
