Expert Says Americans Just Not Smart enough to Understand Obama (with video Of Lib's Bashing Obama)
ChicoER Gate ^ | 6/17/10 | Chuck Wolk

Posted on 06/17/2010 9:34:50 PM PDT by FredJake


According to Paul J.J. Payack, president of Global Language Monitor, Americans are just not intelligent enough to understand what Obama was trying to say in his speech Tuesday evening.  He says that Obama speech was written to a 9.8 grade level of understanding.  I guess us hicks in the hinterland just don't git wat Obama were trying to tell us unejacated folk out here.  Despite using slightly less than four sentences per paragraph, Payack says that because Obama used 19.8 words per sentence, that our ability to go comprehend what he was saying went right over our heads. Payack especially had a problem with the following sentence because he states that the phraseology used made him come off as aloof and out of touch.

"That is why just after the rig sank, I assembled a team of our nation's best scientists and engineers to tackle this challenge -- a team led by Dr. Steven Chu, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist and our nation's secretary of energy."
Excuse me, but did this so-called speech professional listen to the same speech America heard?  After all, Obama's most strident defenders like leftist comrades Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Howard Fineman said that Obama speech was actually were Carteresque.  A speech without direction they said. (see video below)  A speech that gave us no sense that he is in charge of the situation.  Even Eugene Robinson turned on Obama after he failed to give a good speech from the Oval Office.  If you are not sure who Eugene Robinson is, well he just happens to be one of the main Washington Post hacks who is always complaining about the gun-toting, Bible thumping, racist haters who are always complaining about everything Obama does or says.  Well Robinson wrote that his "heart sank" when Obama began to babble on about Energy Secretary Steven Chu and his Nobel Prize.

First, he needed to enlist Americans in a holy crusade to halt the worst environmental disaster in our history. Instead, he told us about Dr. Chu's Nobel prize.For weeks, administration officials have been trumpeting Chu's distinction.
There were other leftists who were even harsher then the ones I cited above when it came to dissecting Obama's speech.  Salon.com got in on the act of bashing the speech as "Just words as the Oval Office speech fizzles."  Then there was the usually reliable Obama defender, "The Huffington Post", that carried articles Wednesday describing the presidential speech as vapid, profoundly underwhelming, with vague generalities that were empty of substance and totally lacking any conviction. Fact is, the only positive thing the leftist in the MSM could even agree on was the.....

I read this whole article and just had to ROTFALMAO . . .

So we are to believe that we are not educated enough to understand what the great one says? What we do understand by huge numbers, that are reflected in the primaries, is that we REJECT his crazy ideas.

I mean come on! Am I to believe that Obama is more intelligent than Charles Krauthammer, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and others who have continually showed us how the King is naked? Well I don’t think so.

I have no problem understanding Rush, Coulter, Beck, Hannity or Krauthammer. The problem is that Obama is full of BS and nothing else.

Also, would someone please tell me what exactly is a stupid “language expert?” Would that be someone proficient in scamming, conning, distorting and outright LYING?

Well as far as I am concerned, this Payack guy is also suggesting that only MORONS could have ELECTED Hussein in the first place?

If that be the case, then he is half right, because those who voted for him are a bunch of friggen morons!

"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that ["intellectual"] Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World — where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' — both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

The Obamessiah came off as aloof and out of touch because his is aloof and out of touch. To paraphrase Gertrude Stein, there’s no there there.

I get so tired of the “if you’re not mired in the total banality of navel-gazing glory you’re not nuanced enough to understand us” meme. I would guess that most tea-partiers have double the IQ of this gaggle of lab partners.

“Am I to believe that Obama is more intelligent than Charles Krauthammer, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and others I don’t think so” Well neither do I. I'm not saying he doesn't know alot, all I saying is 3/4 of what he is saying is all wrong!!!! An over-educated dumbass, for you people in Lama Linda, he is educated beyond his intelligence.

Obama is a dolt - that’s why his college records are sealed and no one can find out exactly what his grades were - and the guy who wrote this article is a dolt too - that’s why he thinks Obama is so smart.....

Nah. Can't be. That person is actually working on something, getting their hands dirty. An Obavoter would be either handwringing or empowering a commission to study the problem, but getting anything done is anathema.

If not understanding Obama means I’m not ‘smart enough’...then I thank God for this gift.

The day I start understanding Obama, is the day I wish my life to end.

Yes, I understand how he became such a screwed up little man, but that’s all the understanding of this creep I want.

Obama's failure has nothing to do with the length of sentences or the intelligence of the audience. His failure has everything to do with the fact that he has produced nothing to solve the problem and the perfect example was the line referenced from his speech.

"That is why just after the rig sank, I assembled a team of our nation's best scientists and engineers to tackle this challenge -- a team led by Dr. Steven Chu, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist and our nation's secretary of energy."

This team of eggheads has come up with absolutely nothing! Not one thing that has stopped the oil from flowing. Not one thing that has stopped the slick from reaching the beaches and marshes. Not one thing that has saved the jobs and livelihoods of the people in the Gulf states. Zero!!! And Obama thinks that should impress people.

Aloof and out of touch? More like delusional to the point where his sanity should be questioned. The man has no clue how to lead.
