The Undergrad as President

At the Daily Beast, Tunku Varadarajan explains “Why Obama’s Immigration Speech Was a Failure:”

When a president recites Emma Lazarus in a speech on immigration—and recites not merely a fragment or two but virtually the entire length of “the New Colossus” — one is inclined to conclude that his speech was written by someone who has just graduated from high school and has a young head brimming with social studies.

Yes.

Update: Varadarajan describes how sophomoric Obama’s speech was, and Jim Hoft dubs it  “Gaffetastic,” adding, “Obama Blows Line From Statue of Liberty in Immigration Address — It’s Even Wrong on the White House Website!”

Hey, governing all 57 states is hard.
