Obama's Easter Speech Promotes Socialism: Can We Count How Many Times He Says "I"?

And then, of course, notice the ï¿½Iï¿½ throughout, even in describing Jesusï¿½s message, because it just wouldnï¿½t have any meaning without Obama declaring it so. His address follows:
ï¿½This week, Jewish families gathered around the Seder table, commemorating the Exodus from Egypt and the triumph of faith over oppression. [What? Jewish families and Easter???] And this weekend, Michelle, Malia, Sasha and _I_ will join Christians around the world to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and the hopeful promise of Easter.
ï¿½As Christians, my family and _I_ remember the incredible sacrifice Jesus made for each and every one of us ï¿½ how he took on the sins of the world and extended the gift of salvation. And we recommit ourselves to following his example here on Earth.
ï¿½To loving our lord and savior. To loving our neighbors. And to seeing in everyone, especially ï¿½the least of these,ï¿½ as a child of God.ï¿½
"These values of which Jesus gave us are at the heart not just of the Christian faith; but of all faiths. From Judaism to Islam; Hinduism to Sikhism; there echoes a powerful call to serve our brothers and sisters. To keep in our hearts a deep and abiding compassion for all. And to treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves.ï¿½ [Socialism anyone?]
"We have a common humanity that binds us together.ï¿½
ï¿½And as Americans, weï¿½re united by something else, too: faith in the ideals that lie at the heart of our founding; and the belief that, as part of something bigger than ourselves, we have a shared responsibility to look out for our fellow citizens."
ï¿½So this weekend, _I_ hope weï¿½re all able to take a moment to pause and reflect. To embrace our loved ones. To give thanks for our blessings. To rededicate ourselves to interests larger than our own.ï¿½
Anyone else besides me want to puke at this poser on a week-end we're supposed to be loving one another?
