Ronald Reagan knew that when you’re in Washington everyone wants to take credit for anything and everything that gets done. Not being willing to share the credit is another reason you won’t be able to accomplish anything.
But this president has a real problem with giving credit. If he had a plaque on his desk, it’d read, “The credit begins and stops here -- with me.”
Did you hear how many times the president said “I” or “me” during the last debate? Did anyone hear a single “we”?
I don’t know if anyone counted on Monday, but during a 25-minute stump speech in Ohio in July Obama said the “I” word 98 times and the “me” word 19 times. (A few weeks later first lady Michelle’s total was 83 times in 25 minutes, so maybe it runs in the family.)
As long as the president is going to use the words “I” and “me,” “we” are never going to accomplish anything in Washington if he’s in charge.
All I can say, America, is that “I” can’t vote Obama out of office on Nov. 6. But “we” sure can.
