I Me Mine: Obama Thanks CIA For "Helping" Him Track bin Ladin; Mentions Self 37 Times

Drudge counted; I don't see an article noting this. Drudge notes it in a headline.

As for that "helped" in in the headline, that's how Reuters/Yahoo headline it:

Obama thanks CIA for helping track down Bin Laden

Guys? Thanks for the assist. Seriously. You really helped.

Other quotes can be mocked here:

"I put my bet on you," he said. "Now the whole world knows that that faith in you was justified."

Not "our country" bet on you? Nah. This is resume padding bullshit from an asshole who's done zero in his life. Anyone without real credentials does this -- they write their resume with deliberately nebulous semi-verbs to somehow insert themselves into the center of the action.

Mere presence at a meeting (but not decisionmaking or leadership) becomes "interfaced and facilitated high-level decisions" or whatnot.

Obama didn't do anything, but can't say so. So he uses ACTION WORDS!!! to grab some credit from someone else. I "bet" on you, whatever "bet" means.

I can do this too:

I was instrumental in facilitating a punking designed by my reader for my primary benefit. I put my faith in Average Joe, and you can all see now my faith was justified.

Thanks to President Sissypants for the vid. So much better than the Beatles' lame-ass Harrison filler "I Me Mine."
