Orator-in-Chief


Ever wonder why you can't stand listening to our Teleprompter-in-Chief? Maybe this is the reason. Okay, PART of the reason! :)

"State of the Union registers at 8th grade reading level" by Byron Tau

"The University of Minnesota's Smart Politics conducted an analysis on the last 70 State of the Union addresses and found that President Obama's three addresses have the lowest grade average of any modern president. 'Obama's average grade-level score of 8.4 is more than two grades lower than the 10.7 grade average for the other 67 addresses written by his 12 predecessors,' they conclude."
