Aspire rather to be a hero than merely appear one.
- Baltasar Gracian, Spanish Philosopher and Writer (1601-1658)
It seems the days of HOPE and CHANGE have now given way to APATHY and COMPLACENCY. Obama’s viewership for his state of the union address had the lowest viewership of any state of the union address since Bill Clinton gave his final SOTU in 2000.
As a matter of fact, it was the second lowest ratings of any SOTU address in the 21 years Nielsen began tracking these addresses to the nation in 1993.
On the bright side for Obama and the Democrats is the fact that those 33.5 million viewers found a way to cast 60 million votes in Obama’s re-election.
