George W. Bush speech after capture of Saddam Hussein:
The success of yesterday's mission is a tribute to our men and women now serving in Iraq. The operation was based on the superb work of intelligence analysts who found the dictator's footprints in a vast country. The operation was carried out with skill and precision by a brave fighting force. Our servicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many dangers in the hunt for members of the fallen regime, and in their effort to bring hope and freedom to the Iraqi people. Their work continues, and so do the risks. Today, on behalf of the nation, I thank the members of our Armed Forces and I congratulate them.
Two usages of the first person singular.

Barack Hussein Obama speech, Sunday, May 1, 2011:
And so shortly after taking office, I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of my war against al Qaeda, even as I continued our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat his network. Then, last August, after years of painstaking work by my intelligence community, I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread to ground. I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan. And finally, last week, I determined that I had enough intelligence to take action, and I authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
Seven usages of the first person singular, four usages of first person possessive.

Despite all of Bush's faults, his mistakes, his inability to maneuver in precise accepted English, Bush was so much more presidential than our present "community organizer."

to ALL,

the reason that GWB was SO MUCH BETTER as POTUS is that he is not a SERIAL LIAR, insufferably ARROGANT, THIN-skinned, ANGRY w/o cause and a LEFTIST lunatic.

sadly, the current occupant of the WH is ALL of those things.

may i invite all of you to visit & join the TEA PARTY in your city/county/parish/state & help us FLUSH BHO & his coven of haters/fools/socialists out of our government?

yours, sw

I wasn't a big fan of W, but we can thank God for his two Supreme Court appointees. If it were not for W, the 2nd Amendment would be just a footnote of American history...
