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