Obama's Use of Complete Sentences Stirs Controversy

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) April 30, 2012 – In the first term in office, President Barack Obama has broken with a tradition established over the previous eight years through his controversial use of complete sentences, political observers say.

Mr. Obama's decision to use complete sentences in his public pronouncements, as well as his insistence on the correct pronunciation of the word "nuclear," has harmed his reelection hopes among millions of voters who find his unusual speaking style unfamiliar and bizarre.

According to presidential historian Davis Logsdon of the University of Minnesota, after eight years of George W. Bush many Americans find it "alienating" to have a President who speaks English as if it were his first language.

Those are the ones who want English as our official language, most of whom couldn't make a complete sentence if their lives depended on it.
