  What’s hot on TV right now?


   Speeches by Barack Obama, Sara Palin and John McCain have attracted more viewers than the Olympics opening ceremony and the American Idol finale.

  The same reason that Americans tuned in by the millions to hear what President Franklin D. Roosevelt had to say in his fireside chats during the Great Depression. They are now paying attention to what the politciains are doing because of what they have done to them. Their lives are directly being affected by the state of the economy, the high price of gasoline and food, incomes that are not keeping up with inflation, jobs being sent overseas, illegal immigration, and an unpopular war that is siphoning off billions of dollars that could be spent at home,

    Too bad they wait until things get so bad before they really start paying attention. But, the fact is, they now are.
