Obama's Annoying Speaking Style

"Millions of Americans who watched Mr. Obama's recent appearance on CBS' Sixty Minutes witnessed the President-Elect's unorthodox verbal tick, which had Mr. Obama employing grammatically correct sentences virtually every time he opened his mouth. . . .

"According to presidential historian Davis Logsdon of the University of Minnesota, . . . . 'If he keeps it up, he is running the risk of sounding like an elitist.'

"The historian said that if Mr. Obama insists on using complete sentences in his speeches, the public may find itself saying, 'Okay, subject, predicate, subject predicate - we get it, stop showing off.'''
