I have observed presidents from Harry Truman to Barack Obama, and one thing has remained constant throughout all of those administrations: Our presidents and their administrations have worked as teams in leading this nation. They have referred to their efforts in terms like "we" and "our," and avoided the pronoun "I" whenever possible.
They've done that because they saw themselves as presidents and chief executive officers, not emperors or kings.
Mr. Obama seems to have a singular admiration for himself. That's narcissism!
It is "I" did this or that, "my" legislation or law - never we or our.
I encouraged the American people to wake up before last year's election, and it appears that they have. Now that Mr. Obama is in office, I encourage all Americans to take particular note of his use of terms and words.
He is not as articulate as the media would ask the electorate to believe. He regularly misplaces an "a" or "an," "I" or "me," but never misses the opportunity to aggrandize himself and his accomplishments.
It's not just about health care. It's about the systematic dismantling of our nation from TARP to the auto industry buyouts, AIG and Wall Street interference, "cash for clunkers" and banking reforms.
He has not addressed immigration, Social Security or Medicare (this only in the negative), or Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac reforms.
The same Democrat initiatives that forced us into the current recession have not been repaired or addressed.
The big "I" has been too busy attempting to dismantle our country
