Will Anybody Watch Obama?



U.S. President Barack Obama will deliver his sixth State of the Union address in Washington, D.C. this evening … but will anyone be watching? And assuming they are, will they be receptive to his agenda?

Viewership for Obama’s annual address to Congress has plummeted precipitously since 52.4 million Americans tuned in for his first State of the Union in 2009.  Last year only 33.5 million Americans watched Obama’s address – the second-lowest total since Nielsen began tracking the data in 1993.

Obama is in real trouble heading into 2014 …

According to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released this week, 51 percent of Americans disapprove of the president’s performance in office compared to 43 percent who approve. Among modern presidents, only George W. Bush had worse numbers heading into his sixth year in office.

Underscoring Obama’s problems, 33 percent of those surveyed said they are “pessimistic and worried” about how he will do over the remainder of his term.  Another 26 percent were “uncertain and wondering.” A year ago those numbers stood at 27 and 21 percent, respectively.

Meanwhile, only 16 percent of respondents said they were “optimistic and confident” about Obama’s remaining time in office – down from 24 percent last year.

Frankly, we can’t believe Obama’s numbers are as good as they are …

For starters, his economic “recovery” has been exclusively confined to the super-wealthy, with the top 1 percent of American earners seeing their incomes rise by 31.4 percent between 2009 and 2012. Everybody else? Their income growth was stagnant …

And this guy wants to lecture us on wealth equality?

Please … Obama has built his cult of personality on being a “middle class hero,” but the numbers expose him for what he is: A “Middle Class Zero.” He’s also been a disaster for the working poor.

Oh … and then there’s the fact he’s spying on us. And lying about it.

And don’t get us started on his socialized medicine law …
