I’m beginning to see some new and encouraging signs that the public is getting hip to the truth about President Barack Obama and his real agenda for America. An interesting one occurred Monday night when Karl Rove appeared on The Tonight Show.
Rove freely spoke his mind about ObamaCare, and each time the audience responded with applause. The first time Leno brought the subject up, he said that he didn’t like it and that it was “bad for the country” which drew immediate applause. Later in the conversation, Rove said it would bankrupt the country, which also drew applause. Not once did I hear a single “Boo” out of the audience. Considering how Rove was treated by the media during the Bush administration, I was frankly surprised that he was welcomed on a major network talk show in the first place, although I don’t think he would have been treated anywhere near as respectfully by Letterman as he was by Leno.
Another interesting sign was an article in yesterday’s NY Times entitled: “CNN Fails to Stop Fall in Ratings”. The article reports that Sean Hannity’s ratings are almost 4 times as high as Larry King’s, and I checked a few TV ratings sites, & confirmed that the top 10 cable shows are ALL on Fox.
While the network news shows from NBC, CBS & ABC each have significantly higher ratings (7-8 million viewers each) than any one of the shows on Fox, when you look at the total viewers of all of the Fox shows from 5PM to 11PM (Beck, Baier, Smith, O’Reilly, Hannity, Greta & O’Reilly rerun) the number is over 22 million viewers. While some of us watch more than one of the Fox shows, I still believe that number is quite significant.
The question that remains, is whether we’ll be able to disarm the progressives in the coming elections both this year and in 2012, before Obama does too much more damage to our country. It’s going to be a hard fight considering the total disdain for the constitutional limits on the powers of the federal government that the Obama administration has displayed thus far.
