President Obama less people watching

<span style=”font-size: 12pt; color: black; font-family: Arial”> An the hits just keep on coming as the President wanted to make a big splash with the jobs speech. He waited until after the GOP debate, he waited until after his vacation, he waited to too long some people say. What President Obama did not see coming was if you wait too long and if you take with no action it becomes the boy who cried wolf.  When President Obama did deliver his jobs speech it garnered the lowest ratings he has received for any address to a joint session of Congress of his presidency. There were 31.5 million viewers for the speech just under the 32.1 million viewers for the healthcare speech in 2009 do we see a trend. Let us compare a little more remember the good ole days the first speech to a joint session of Congress in February 2009, President Obama drew 52.4 million viewers. When he did the first official State of the Union Address on January 2010 drew 48 million viewers and this year the number dropped to 42.8 million. The problem is the numbers do not lie the shine is dull, the rhetoric is old and to say we have heard it before is an understatement. The good news is less people are actually listening and maybe everyone is starting to wake up.
