During last Thursday’s rally, Barack Obama talked about himself over seventy times, even though he was supposed to be talking about the candidates he was campaigning for.
During the Cleveland rally for Rich Cordray and Betty Sutton, Obama talked about himself repeatedly, even though the candidates were sitting right behind him.
In his typical manner without having a TelePrompter ready available, he stuttered as he attempted to attack President Trump and the success of recent Republican initiatives.

“I see you,” Obama pointed into the audience.
“Let, let, let, let, let me just say these, these are friends of mine,” Obama said, stuttering his words, “I admit I am biased.”
Obama called Cordray and Sutton a “friend of mine.”
Speaking of Cordray, “he had my back even when some of you couldn’t pronounce my name,” said Obama.
“I have worked with them,” he said, focusing on himself.
Obama repeatedly attempted to regale the audience with stories about when he was the President. He can’t seem to let that go.
Upon appearing to be “forced” to talk about the candidates he was campaigning for, Obama said, “But I have a broader message…”
“I always miss having at least one heckler up in here,” Obama told the audience.
“I can never really hear what they’re saying, but I appreciate the exercise of free speech,” he said.
At one point, Obama went on a stuttering rant, saying, “We, we, we, we, we, we, we, we, we spend…”
“I know that sometimes, when I was president, even when I was a candidate, folks would say, ‘Barack, you’re talking too long.’
‘You’re like too professorial, you’re explaining stuff too much,'” Obama said.
“I know, but sometimes things are complicated, and I didn’t, I, I, I, and I was confident…” he said.
Obama finally said, “And that’s why I’m here. Not just because I love Ohio, although I do. And not just because I love Cleveland,” he said.
“I want to talk a little bit about Rich just for a second.”
I believe he meant that literally, as he shifted back to talking about himself.
“I, I, I can’t, I can’t even beat Sasha at Jeopardy,” he said, getting off topic.
Approximately thirty minutes in, Obama said, “Now listen, I know it’s hot so I gotta wrap up.”
“But here’s something I said last week that I want to repeat,” he said, before saying the same thing again.
“I said this last week; I want to repeat it,” he said.
In total, Obama talked about himself 79 times during the 40-minute speech. He said “I” 66 times, “Me” 5 times, “My” 5 times, and “Mine” 3 times.
Obama gave two speeches a week ago where he mentioned himself a total of 165 times — 63 times in California and 102 times in Illinois.
When not talking about himself, he spent the remaining time belittling President Trump. This is unprecedented and doesn’t appear to be how he felt before Trump came in and started dismantling Obama’s horrible policies.

It looks like there may be a little jealousy.
