Sunday, June 27, 2010: President Obama spoke at the close of the G-20 Conference in Toronto, Canada. Obama ignores fact and continues to tell us that he has turned employment around and the economy.

Friday, May 7, 2010: President Obama speaks on the monthly jobs numbers. Joined by Treasury Secretary Geithner, Secretary of Commerce Locke, Secretary of Labor Solis, Director of the Office of Management and Budget Orszag, Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers Romer and Director of the National Economic Council Summers.

Thursday, April 22, 2010: President Obama is in New York to make a speech to lecture Wall Street.

Monday, April 19, 2010: President Obama travels to Los Angeles, California to “rescue” Barbara Boxer’s floundering campaign for reelection.

Friday, April 16, 2010: President Obama has to make another speech, this time at the White House Conference on America’s Great Outdoors.

Thursday, April 15, 2010: President Obama travels to Cape Canaveral, Florida. The spin has you believing that he will speak to the employees of NASA on his plans for the agency.

Monday & Tuesday, April 12, 13, 2010: Obama Maximus time. Obama makes remarks at the Nuclear Security Summit on both days, because we never get enough of him speechifying.

Friday, April 2, 2010: President Obama needs to make another speech – it’s only been twenty four hours since the last one. Today it’s on jobs. Visiting Celgard, Inc in Charlotte, NC. Don’t worry he’ll be talking about his health care bill in the next one. Speech Number 476.

Tuesday, March 30, 2010: President Obama travelled to Northern Virginia Community College in Alexandria Virginia, to pitch the newly signed health care bill, or is it an educational bill, no it’s a health bill but also has education covered. That’s why Obama needs to make a speech so he and congress can figure out what they passed. Speech Number 472.

On the same day Obama held a joint press conference with visiting French President Nicola Sarkozy. Barack seemed like this was cutting in to his basketball court time. News Conference Number 44 and Speech Number 471.

Sunday, March 28, 2010: President Obama makes a surprise visit to Afghanistan for talks with President Karzai and then makes a speech to the troops at Bagram Airfield. A disappointing speech from the Commander-In-Chief, who apologizes to our troops on fighting for freedom, destroying an enemy and liberating a country. Obama, always the community organizer, never a real President. Speech number 470.

Thursday, March 25, 2010: Two days after signing his Obamacare bill, President Obama is till trying to sell what’s in it. Making a campaign stop at the University of Iowa Field House, Iowa City. Obama pulls the shade back just slightly to reveal, “Now, it will take about four years to implement this entire plan – because we need to do it responsibly and we need to get it right. That means that health care costs won’t go down overnight.” Speech number 469.

Tuesday, March 23, 2010: Vice President Joe Biden spoke to lead off the Obamacare signing ceremony by saying “This is a big F*cking deal!” President Obama then made his speech stopping short in claiming that the Democrat majority and his White House had parted the seas and saved the country.

Monday, March 8, 2010: President Obama has shoved creating jobs aside for another, yes another speech selling his Obamcare. Traveling to Arcadia University in Glenside, Pennsylvania, where he continues to demonize the health insurance industry. Obama believes government has all the answers. Speech number 463.

Wednesday, March 3, 2010: Another day another speech by President Obama. Obama is entering his 408th day in office and by my calculations he has averaged 1.03 speeches a day! Here is the official White House press note:  “The President will deliver remarks about moving forward into the final stage of the health insurance reform debate. He will reiterate why reform is so crucial and what it will mean for American families and businesses: they will have more control over their own health care, they will see lower costs, and they will see an end to insurance company abuses. The President will note that his proposal includes the best ideas from both parties, and he will restate his preference for a comprehensive bill that will reduce premiums and end discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions. The President will urge Congress to move swiftly toward votes on this legislation.” Speech number 462.

Tuesday, March 2, 2010: President Obama travelled to Savannah, Georgia for the next stop on the “White House to Main Street Tour”.  What another campaign stunt? This White House and President has no idea what Main Street is and couldn’t find it if they were led to it. Gimmicks like this are very clear to the average voter, but it’s unlikely that  Rahm Emanuel or David Plouffe  even care. Speech number 461.

Thursday, February 25, 2010: President Obama chairs the “Health Care Summit” where he will get over 6 hours of face time. Obama keeps showing us his thin skin and anger when he does not get his way. Viewers will see how awful our elected officials do when under the constant ‘eye’ of television cameras. Speech number 460.

President Obama doesn’t like what he’s hearing

Wednesday, February 24, 2010: President Obama addressed the Business Roundtable’s 2010 First Quarter Meeting at the St. Regis Hotel. Obama gave a vigorous defense of his economic agenda, rejecting critics who call his policies “socialism” and insisting he aims to boost U.S. competitiveness abroad. Speech number 459.

Monday, February 22, 2010: Another day and another speech: President Obama spoke to the National Governors Association in the White House State Dining Room. Whatever he said in Vegas, did not stay there so he repeated his mantra on the Recovery Act: “It must be doing something right.”, “We’re working to create jobs by all means necessary.”, “I’m not going to rest until we see more progress in each and every one of your states.” Speech number 458.

Friday, February 19th, 2010: Obama showed his hand in Vegas today holding a town hall meeting at a high school in Henderson, Nevada and a speech to business and tourism leaders at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. “I love Vegas,” Obama told the audience of 650. This is Obama’s 24th Town Hall and Speech #457.

Thursday, February 18th, 2010: President Obama is attending two fundraisers today in Denver, Colorado, for  incumbent Senator Michael Bennet. Bennet is running at least 14 points behind his Republican challenger Lieutenant Governor Jane Norton. The President will then travel to Las Vegas, Nevada, where he will attend a DNC fundraising dinner at a private home; no formal remarks are planned. This dinner is closed. That makes these Political Fundraisers 29, 30 and 31. Speeches 454, 455, 456.

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010: On the first anniversary of the TARP fund, President Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden touted those 2 million jobs “created or saved” and how he has saved the American economy. Pure hype; another day and one more campaign speech. Speech 453.

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010: In full campaign mode, President Obama visits Lanham, Md., and announces $8.3 billion in federal loan guarantees to the Southern Co. to build two new reactors in Burke County, Ga. Treat this as another phony campaign pledge. The Georgia project is unlikely to happen during Obama’s current term: the plans still have to be approved by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which could take years. Speech 452.

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010: President Obama hijack Robert Gibb’s Daily Press Briefing to make comments on this morning’s joint meetings with the Republican and Democratic leadership on jobs and the economy. Obama then launches into reading from a prepared statement for over ten minutes covering his Healthcare bill and the blocked confirmation of Craig Becker for the NLRB. This marks Speech Number 451. Obama also took questions from the press, the first time in over seven months, so this also is News Conference Number 43.

President Obama has broken every existing presidential record on the number of times he has appeared on television since taking office. Mark Knoller of CBS News has faithfully chronicled Obama’s over saturation. This will be a regularly updated thread on Barack Obama’s love of self.

Sunday, February 7, 2010: Obama’s question and answer with Katie Couric of CBS News, was his 163rd interview since taking office. More than any other president in the first 13 months.

For the record here are Obama’s total stats updated as I can:

SPEECHES, COMMENTS & REMARKS: 684
• Includes 52 addresses or statements specifically on his health care proposals.
• He used a TelePrompTer at least 178 times. (Technically, it was 177 ½ . On July 13, 2009, one of the teleprompter screens on the left side of his lectern fell to the ground and broke shortly after he began speaking. So he was left with half a TelePrompTer.)

NEWS CONFERENCES: 61
• Of which 5 were formal, solo White House Q&A sessions. Four were in prime time. His last one was July 22, 2009.
• Nearly all of the other press availabilities were joint appearances with foreign leaders at which as few as 1 question was taken by Mr. Obama.
• Predecessor George W. Bush did 21 news conferences his first year of which 4 were formal, solo White House sessions. Only 1 was in prime time.

INTERVIEWS: 200+
• This is a striking number of interviews and far more than any of his recent predecessors in their first year. Ninety of the sessions were TV interviews. Eleven were radio. The rest were newspaper and magazine. The number reflects the White House media strategy that Mr. Obama can best respond to questions in an interview setting.

TOWN HALL MEETINGS: 26
• Includes 1 in Strasbourg, France and another in Shanghai, China

POLITICAL FUNDRAISERS: 84
• The events raised at least $27.25 million. (3 of the events Mr. Obama attended declined to disclose how much was raised.
• George W. Bush did 6 fundraisers his 1st year raising over $48 million.

CAMPAIGN RALLIES: 7
• The rallies were for Gov. Jon Corzine, D-N.J., gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds, D-Va, and U.S. Senate Candidate Martha Coakley, D-Mass. All of them lost.

    Good analysis here. An interesting question will be whether that ‘media oversaturation’ is driven by the abyssmal economic circumstances he inherited or Obama’s own love of exposure.

  2. Sunday, February 7, 2010 7:59 pm

    Great post! I also noticed that recently Obama has too much exposure, almost every time you turn on your television it’s either Obama with a new issue or Obama delivering a speech. I mean come on it’s good to see that our president is doing something, but isn’t it a wee bit exaggerated to be on camera almost 24/7.

    A little addition shows a total of 837 media and public events of one sort or another. In very approximate figures, that’s two a day, every day he’s been in office. If we assume only 1 hour of his time is required per event and that Obama works 10 hours a day, 7 days a week, that means he’s spending 20% of his time preening for an audience and not doing his job. Gawd I love that man.

    So, who is actually running the country? Soros? Feinstein? Schumer? Pelosi? K Street?

    Why is so much of the country so blind as to what kind of jerk is sitting in the White House?

  4. Sunday, February 21, 2010 2:05 pm

    I’ve read, and commented elsewhere myself, where this idiot must have been planted, by Karl Rove himself, to discredit the left for generations. At what point does this fool stop being in campaign mode and get to work?
