Media Obama Fatigue … Viewership to Last Night’s Obamacare Address Down 38.6% from First Address to Congress


After eight months in office America has Obama Fatigue. America has grown weary of “The One”.

It was billed as Barack Obama’s most important speech as President. The MSM said that this Obama speech could make or break the rest of his presidency and Obamacare hung in the balance.


The Obamacare speech in front of a joint session of Congress on healthcare was covered by 10 networks, ABC, CBS, NBC, Univision, Telemundo, BET, CNBC, CNN, FOX News Channel , MSNBC and reached an audience of  32,111,596 viewers. The 596 viewers must have been courtesy of MSNBC.  This is down 38.6% from President Obama’s first address to a joint session of Congress on February 24, 2009.

Obama fatigue has set in with this President. The bloom is off the rose and Obama has so over-exposed himself to the public that no one tunes into hear the same old talking points with no substance.

As Hot Air states, So You Think You Can Dance tops So You Think You Can Lie. Just like Obama is losing the PR battle with his socialized Obamacare, he also appears to be losing the audience. No one is fired up any more to hear him talk. What was billed as his most important speech did not change any minds and bombed in the ratings.

So what does this President do who has warn out his welcome with the viewing audience? Schedules a speech on the financial crisis for Monday of course.

Scrapple Face has uncovered that the Obamacare bill has a provision for OFS.

      I heard Obama is going on tv again. This time Obama will tell us how he is cleaning up wall street. Obama has turned into a joke!

      The popcorn is cold and I’m toying with the sticky
      floor in the movie isle. The lady in front of me with
      the big hat is snoring. Even the future attractions
      are getting boring. Looking around, the theater is
      almost empty. At least in the old days there was
      a cartoon or a real newsreel. Obowma reruns just
      cannot earn back the cost of production. Hey, I’m
      paying the cost of production!
