    ABC's White House special struggled for viewers

    President Obama's town hall meeting on health care delivered a sickly rating Wednesday evening.

    The one-hour ABC News special "Primetime: Questions for the President: Prescription for America" (4.7 million viewers, 1.1 preliminary adults 18-49 rating) had the fewest viewers in the 10 p.m. hour. The special tied some 8 p.m. comedy repeats as the lowest-rated program on a major broadcast network.

    No one wanted to watch the propaganda special. I think this probably hurt O's feelings that he was basically ignored by America.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Maybe they should start playing with dolls. That should get more viewers interested, I bet.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I'll guess that people knew it was just that - propaganda - and didn't feel the need to be insulted.

    I expect people didn't watch because they knew it would be boring, not out of mass rejection of the Obama health care plan. Dream on.

    What makes you think it hurt his feelings?

    Even I, an Obama supporter, didn't care enough to go back and watch the taped version I had saved on my DVR (I fell asleep watching it both nights ).

    You weren't missing much.

    A bunch of loaded questions answered by Obama.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    It might turn out to be a blessing in desguise for PBO. If no one watched, then no one caught this little gem.

    Dr. Orrin Devinsky, a neurologist and researcher at the New York University Langone Medical Center, said that elites often propose health care solutions that limit options for the general public, secure in the knowledge that if they or their loves ones get sick, they will be able to afford the best care available, even if it’s not provided by insurance.

    Devinsky asked the president pointedly if he would be willing to promise that he wouldn’t seek such extraordinary help for his wife or daughters if they became sick and the public plan he’s proposing limited the tests or treatment they can get.

    The president refused to make such a pledge, though he allowed that if “it’s my family member, if it’s my wife, if it’s my children, if it’s my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care.["]

    President Obama Questioned about Health Care in ABC News Forum with Charles Gibson and Diane Sawyer in special edition of Prime Time Prescription for America Questions for the President - ABC News

    Couldnt ask for a bigger "See I told ya so!"

    Put Obama's answer jsut above into that mix and we can all see just how wonderful this idea is.
