Quote of the Day, That’s Our @BarackObama! edition.

Alas, yes, ‘ours’ – even if he doesn’t consider himself ‘yours.’  You voted, didn’t ya*?

Anyway, Andrew Malcolm sums up Barack Obama’s official tribute to Nelson Mandela.

 During his 593-word statement, Obama managed to reference the deceased freedom fighter eight times.

Predictably, Obama also managed to reference Obama 14 times.

The heck of it is: it’s not the worst ostensible-subject-to-me ratio that Barack Obama’s ever managed.

*Sorry, but we expect them to abide by the results of elections that we win, and ding them when they don’t.  Works both ways.
