20. shows that he read the bills
Too many legislators simply vote on bills based upon the title or what their leadership tells them to do. Obama's responses shows that he had actually read the bills and had thoughtful responses to them.

Often, there are poison pills placed in bills. Other times, there are unpopular provisions hidden in popular bills. Sometimes, a simple yes or no is not appropriate.
