The Obama Effect: Letterman’s Ratings Soar!

Oh the Americanos and the drama with Healthcare Reform.

In case you were not aware, President Obama is attempting to pass a bill through which will form an accessible system of healthcare to everyone

Obama was also on Letterman last night. It will not be surprising to see the President’s approval rating follows suit!
”The appearance of Barack Obama on Late Show with David Letterman gave the leader in late night programming his highest ratings in four years, only to be beaten by the elusive Oprah in 2005!

Monday’s season opener garnered a 5.6 household ratings! And although that number may not be impressive to you, we’ll try and put it in layman’s terms – he killed it!

Letterman’s viewership was 195% higher than the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and 27% above the 10pm Jay Leno Show.

Now, what are the ratings on healthcare reform?!”

President Obama Remembers Ted Kennedy

Upon hearing the news that Ted Kennedy had passed, Obama released this statement sharing his condolences with the Kennedy family.
“Michelle and I were heartbroken to learn this morning of the death of our dear friend, Senator Ted Kennedy. For five decades, virtually every major piece of legislation to advance the civil rights, health and economic well being of the American people bore his name and resulted from his efforts. I valued his wise counsel in the Senate, where, regardless of the swirl of events, he always had time for a new colleague. I cherished his confidence and momentous support in my race for the Presidency. And even as he waged a valiant struggle with a mortal illness, I’ve profited as President from his encouragement and wisdom.
An important chapter in our history has come to an end. Our country has lost a great leader, who picked up the torch of his fallen brothers and became the greatest United States Senator of our time. And the Kennedy family has lost their patriarch, a tower of strength and support through good times and bad.
Our hearts and prayers go out to them today–to his wonderful wife, Vicki, his children Ted Jr., Patrick and Kara, his grandchildren and his extended family.”
