Obama is only 51, so like me, he was taught the "new" math in school. I was taught at home the old way and learned it in one night at age 7. However, at school, where I won every math contest in class until they no longer let me play, I was forced to write-out the solutions under the "new" math style. Since "new" math, America has had a decrease in its math scores for two generations. So it is understandable that Obama and libs cannot do math, they were taught the "new" math. Maybe some remedial courses in "old" or "real" math in DC (and the country) are the solution, it is better than the current lack of basic understanding.
