Ummm, right.

I've said it before, President Obama is not the great orator the media proclaim him.  He's not a terrible orator - he's had to have some saving grace to keep his approvals out of the high twenties, right?  And it certainly wouldn't be his health care plan.  He's got to use the former to sell the latter. And he's apparently doing just a bang up job of that...

If this is the type of speaking he's going to do, as the Washington Post reports, then there's no hope for his health care reform sticking.

Toward the end of a question-and-answer session with workers at an advanced battery technology manufacturer, a woman named Doris stood to ask the president whether it was a "wise decision to add more taxes to us with the health care" package.

"We are over-taxed as it is," Doris said bluntly.

Obama started out feisty. "Well, let's talk about that, because this is an area where there's been just a whole lot of misinformation, and I'm going to have to work hard over the next several months to clean up a lot of the misapprehensions that people have," the president said.

He then spent the next 17 minutes and 12 seconds lulling the crowd into a daze. His discursive answer - more than 2,500 words long -- wandered from topic to topic
Well, that's just terrific. Bang up job Mr. President.  You probably wouldn't have thought conservatives would have been thinking this a year ago, but honestly Mr. President, keep talking.
