Surprise! Obama’s statement on Pope Benedict XVI mentions ‘I’ four times

Zing! Twitter predicted that President Obama’s statement on the news that Pope Benedict XVI will be stepping down at the end of the month would be self-focused.

He was late, but he did it!

His full statement:

Statement by the President on His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI

On behalf of Americans everywhere, Michelle and I wish to extend our appreciation and prayers to His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. Michelle and I warmly remember our meeting with the Holy Father in 2009, and I have appreciated our work together over these last four years. The Church plays a critical role in the United States and the world, and I wish the best to those who will soon gather to choose His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI’s successor.

On-the-ball Twitter users notice a few things.
