The mainstream media would like you to believe that President Obama is a literary genius and that George W. Bush was a idiot in search of a village. However analysis of State of the Union addresses throughout history has revealed that President Bush’s State of the Union addresses were written at a higher reading level that Obama’s.
The Guardian has produced a brilliant interactive graphic showing the reading level of every State of the Union address in American history.
- Obama’s average reading grade level is 9.2
- George W. Bush’s average reading grade level was 10
- Ronald Reagan’s average reading grade was 10.2
