No Wonder Ginsburg Fell Asleep During State of the Union Speech
It was also a yawner for most Americans. Only about 9-1/2 percent, of this nation's population watched this year's Obama loves Obama show. Not since Clinton gave his last State of the Union address -- 15 years ago -- have the ratings been so low.
Low ratings for this President's rose-colored State of the Union speech aren't anything new. Last year's address was also the lowest rated since that same Clinton speech. But, records are always meant to be broken and Obama just couldn't wait to break his last year's record. That's because our supposedly genius leader spent the last few weeks previewing all of his proposals that would appear in the address. Everything from free Community College tuition, family leave, tax hikes on the rich to give middle class workers and, you name it. Of course, since everybody knew what he would say, why watch the show? Duh!
Obama’s speech didn’t excite Ginsburg: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/in-the-loop/post/obamas-speech-didnt-excite-ginsburg/2013/02/13/b4531d8e-75fc-11e2-aa12-e6cf1d31106b_blog.html
