President Obama has delivered his 200th speech this morning, that is an excessive amount of speeches. He has barely been in for a year!
Here is the link:
"His news conferences and casual off-the-cuff remarks during photo ops were not counted as speeches, but his opening statements at Town Hall meetings
and weekly radio/internet addresses were included.
An analysis of the 200 speeches reflects the issues on which he has placed the greatest importance:
# The Economy & Stimulus Program – 48 speeches
# Revamping Health Care Coverage – 16
# Government Reform & Regulation - 11
# Energy and Climate Change – 10 "
The blogger also goes into detail on other facts regarding the plethora of speeches. (like, does Obama use a teleprompter, and how often!)
Doe anyone else think that 200 speeches is excessive? Does he have time to do anything else if he is delivering speeches all the time? This count
began with inauguration (Jan 20), through this morning (if I counted correctly, a mere 168 days later!!)
That averages to more than one speech a day! Is our president a narcissist? And I cannot help but wonder why on earth the man wants to give so many
speeches in so little time. Thats courting a lot of press, isnt it?
Anyway, what are your thoughts on this? I would think that by saturating the media with his speeches daily, that the public will quickly begin to
tune him out as background noise. Is this what he is after?
