    Well, that makes sense. That's probably about the right level for most President Obama's audience (i.e. the average American) to understand. The Pope's homilies probably have a more... cerebral average consumer.

    I don't find the grade level at which the President's 70 minute long speech was written to be strange at all...

    After all, he had to think about his primary audience--the members of Congress. All those Tea Partiers who were elected in November, 2010 certainly dumbed down the Congressional IQ.
