A Review Of The "9th Grade Level" SOTU Speech

In response to Obama's SOTUs Average a 9th Grade Reading Level:

John Sexton reported:

President Obama's SOTUs are at a 9th grade reading level on average, though it turns out 2009 was an outlier. His three other SOTUs (the current one hasn't been rated yet) have been at an 8th grade level.

One pundit did not hold back in his scorn, describing the speech as “tinkertoy” and “juvenile,” “primitive,” and “something you would hear on the high school debating team.”

“It was a kid’s presentation of a philosophy reduced to maybe the ninth grade level,” he concluded. “I’m sorry, that’s what it was.”

Wow, "juvenile....primitive"? Who would say such a thing?

How about Chris Matthews reacting to Marco Rubio's speech.
