The Gift

January 26, 2010

The other day, my assistant, Jennifer and I were listening to President Obama give his speech in Ohio. We noticed that the President likes to use the personal pronoun “I” a great deal. In fact, we counted in a matter of about six minuets that he had used the word “I” thirty six times as he referred to himself. I guess that is what you would call a Big Ego.

The other interesting thing is that he told a Democratic Congressman, who was retiring, that Democrats should have no fear because they have "him", Obama. Well, so much for modesty.

And now to some slang.

When I was growing up using the term, “the Gift”, meant that you had the ability to talk your way out of just about anything. The President, when he first took office, made the statement to some newspaper people that he had the Gift. And of course they assumed “the Gift” was his eloquent speaking abilities, but to me it always meant that he knew how to talk his way out of anything. Well, it seems like that is,President Obama’s "Gift".
