The Telling Detail

There he goes again — this time for 17 minutes and 2,500 words. But don’t worry, I won’t ask you to read the President’s entire oration. Just this:

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. [Emphasis totally added.]

President Clinton felt your pain. President Obama insists it’s all in your head.
