One of the chief criticisms of President Barack Obama has been his use of personal pronouns when he speaks, suggesting he possesses a degree of narcissism. That has been picked up on by many dating back to the early parts of his term. However, with the recent scandal involving New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, Obama’s response came off as a bit awkward according to conservative talker Mark Levin.

In an appearance on the Tuesday broadcast of “Imus in the Morning” on the Fox Business Network, Levin noted the use of personal pronouns and suggested that we make sure it wasn’t Obama in the lewd photos based on his response.

“Are we sure it’s not him?” Levin said. “Are we sure it’s not him, because even when it comes to Weiner’s wiener, Obama talks about himself. He says if it was me. I would resign. If it’s him and he’ll resign, I say we make sure that it’s not him.”

Obama had said in an interview with NBC’s Ann Curry, “If it was me, I would resign.” And that is what drew attention of Levin.

“Well, I mean, who the hell knows, he’s asked about Weiner’s wiener and he wants to talk about his own wiener, so who knows,” Levin said.

But that’s just par for the course according to Levin, whether is the issue of Anthony Weiner, or something more substantive like unemployment.

“That’s because you don’t understand how he thinks,” Levin said. “He’s sitting there thinking, ‘OK, it’s about me, me, me,’ and they bring up Weiner and he’s there, ‘OK, if it was me.’ But it’s not you. He can’t control himself. If you talk about unemployment he’ll talk about himself. If you talk about Weiner’s wiener, he’ll talk about his own wiener. You’re talking about — that’s just the nature of the man.”
