Former President Barack Obama continues to prove that he is everything that President Joe Biden would like to be but just isn’t, no matter how hard he tries.
Billboard reports that Obama just won an Audie award to add to his collection.
The winners have been announced
On Friday, the Audio Publishers Association (APA) announced the winners of the 2022 Audie Awards. These awards recognize exceptional individuals in the area of audiobooks and spoken-word entertainment.
Among the winners was former President Obama. He won the “best narration by the author” category.
This was for the narration that he did for his book, A Promised Land, which was published by Penguin Random House Audio.
For those unfamiliar with the book, here’s part of its Amazon billing:
In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil.
The book was a New York Times bestseller. And, now, Obama has received an award for the audio portion of it.
Obama wins again
Recent reports also reveal that Biden failed to live up to Obama’s viewership numbers for his first State of the Union address.
Nielsen Media Research, this week, released its viewership numbers for Biden’s address, which took place on Tuesday, and the group found that roughly 38 million viewers tuned in to watch Biden’s address.
At first, this might sound like a lot of viewers, but it’s one of the worst viewership numbers for any president’s first State of the Union address in decades. Obama, for example, pulled in 48 million viewers in 2010.
Former Presidents Donald Trump, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton, also topped Biden here. Trump garnered 45.5 million viewers in 2016, Bush, 51.8 million in 2002, and Clinton managed 45.8 million in 1994. This lands Biden, once again, at the back of the pack.
Not even Obama’s endorsement of Biden appears to be helping Biden. As each day goes by, Biden continues to fail, and those failures are only highlighted by Obama’s past and present successes.
