    Good writers and speakers tune their speech level appropriate to their audiences. I have no doubt that if President Obama were speaking to a postgraduate audience; his Flesch-Kincaid score would be much higher. Tea Party politicians, on the other hand, have proven with their statements on about any subject that their intelligence and speaking skills are in fact at a seventh grade or lower level.

    SOTU speeches are carefully written so that everyone can comprehend them – you can bet that they were written in Word or some other program that uses the Flesch-Kincaid test.
