As the blessings of health and fortune have a beginning, so they must also find an end. Everything rises but to fall, and increases but to decay.
- Sallust, Roman Historian (B.C. 86-34)
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.
