Obama State of The Union Address Rated At 8th Grade Comprehension, Teleprompter Stuck In Middle School

January 25, 2012

President Obama’s 2012 State of the Union address again rated at an 8th grade comprehension level, on the Flesch-Kincaid readability test — the third lowest score of any State of the Union address since 1934.

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.

“The Flesch-Kincaid test is designed to assess the readability level of written text, with a formula that translates the score to a U.S. grade level. Longer sentences and sentences utilizing words with more syllables produce higher scores. Shorter sentences and sentences incorporating more monosyllabic words yield lower scores,” the University of Minnesota’s Eric Ostermeier explains.

December 1, 2010

President Barack Obama is considering at least a short delay to the start of his holiday vacation in Hawaii so he can try to work out a deal with congressional Republicans on the Bush tax cuts that expire December 31, CNN has learned.

Two senior administration officials tell CNN the White House has been getting signals that the lame duck session of Congress could drag on past December 18, when the president is scheduled to depart for Hawaii.

Obama has privately said he is willing to stay in Washington until Christmas Eve if necessary to finish the contentious debate over taxes, the officials said.

Obama Autopens Everything, Leaving No Personal Paper Trail,Teleprompter Could Get Jealous

November 14, 2010

When Gary Zimet learned about Jennifer Cline’s handwritten response letter from President Barack Obama, regarding her lose of job and health benefits,  he reached out to see if she was interested in selling it. The letter was incredibly rare as far as presidential documents go.

It took five or six months for the 28-year-old mom from Michigan to respond, Zimet said, but she accepted and sold the letter for $7,000.

Now, that rare document belongs to Zimet, of New York-based Moments in Time, and his business partner, Bill Panagopulos, of Stamford-based Alexander Autographs.

“She drove from Michigan to here and we gave her a certified bank check,” Panagopulos said.

The four-line letter penned from the sitting president is one of few authentic handwritten Obama letters Panagopulos has seen.“I’ve never seen a rarer president,” Panagopulos said.

Now the letter is up for sale.

As time goes on, it is becoming more and more rare for handwritten letters from the White House to make it to market, Panagopulos said.

Word in the industry is that Obama only answers about 10 letters each week. Many are typed and signed with an autopen.

Those letters are “monetarily worthless,” Zimet said. “I have not yet see one typed authentically signed letter from Obama …  He autopens everything.”

Much like voting present, Obama may leave a worthless personal papertrail..

Obama Using New I-Prompter 2.0 Says Enemy Instead of Politically Correct Frenemy

November 2, 2010

Obama, in an interview with talk radio host Michael Baisden, said, “I probably should have used the word ‘opponents’ instead of enemies.”

He was backtracking from a comment he made a week ago in an interview with Univision radio in which he sought to persuade Hispanics to vote for Democratic candidates instead of Republicans.

“If Latinos sit out the election instead of, ‘we’re going to punish our enemies and we’re going to reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us’ — if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s going to be harder,” Obama had said.

Hammering home the issue was John Boehner, the Republican who would oust Democrat Nancy Pelosi as House speaker if Republicans win control of the House on Tuesday as most pollsters believe will happen.

“Today, sadly, we have president who uses the word ‘enemy’ for fellow Americans … fellow citizens. He uses it for people who disagree with his agenda of bigger government … people speaking out for a smaller, more accountable government that respects freedom and allows small businesses tocreate jobs,” Boehner planned to say in Cincinnati.

Obama seeking change  has operator error with new I-Prompter 2.0, says Enemy instead of more politically correct Frenemy.

President Sends Personal Letter To Kid

July 20, 2010

Some kids turn to parents, friends or teachers if they’re dealing with bullies. But one local girl went right to the top for a little help.

Student Ziainey Stokes from West Philadelphia wrote a letter to President Obama about bullying in January. The 11-year-old was fed up with being a victim after several years of abuse at two schools.

“I wrote that some people don’t care if you get bullied or not, but I do care,” Ziainey said.

Not expecting a response, Ziainey was ecstatic to find what arrived in her mailbox in March – a genuine letter from the Commander-in-Chief.

“Your letter demonstrates a desire to change the culture of your classroom as well as your community,” he wrote.

Thanks for the kind words  Mr President..
