Ignatieff on being an American. The numbers.

Last Saturday I posted a disturbing 2 minute and 8 second long You Tube video that contained part of a speech made by Michael Ignatieff. I asked the question(s) How many times did Ignatieff use the words "We", "us", "our" and "ourselves" in the short video.

Although that post generated around 3000 views nobody managed to post the actual numbers in the comments.

So without further ado here are the numbers:

"We" = 10 times
"Us" = 5 times
"Our" = 4 times
"ourselves" = 3 times

Oh, and 2 "being an American is not easy" for the record.

Read 2 articles today,
both stating ''and if he loses, he will go home...''

Will seek them out and link.

Wilson have you seen any MSM stories that agree with Ignatieff that we need an election?

wilson said...

Yes, a Dipper riding pres
link at Joannes.

Walk down memory lane, when Iffy was running for Lib leader, asked if he would quit if he loses:

Ardvark said...

Even that story says that he should avoid an election and go coalition now.

When the normally Liberal friendly MSM is not supporting Iggy's cause that does not bode well.

wilson said...

ooo, read your question wrong AA.
from the Dipper story:
Dipper warns:

''Otherwise, he takes the risk that disgruntled Canadians may elect a Conservative majority (heaven forbid!).

Dippers don't want to give Canadians a choice, just steal government and haha on you!

Ignatieff said at his presser yesterday that he "agrees with Canadians"

I am not too sure on what but the need for an election is sure not one of them.
