Obama On the Road

Trying to reclaim the momentum on health care reform, the President has hit the road:
President Obama began a personal effort Tuesday to reclaim momentum for his health-care initiative with a direct rebuttal of what he called "scare tactics," rumors and misrepresentations.
It is probably too little too late for the President.

The more that that plan is in the public debate, the more people are going to begin to parse the language of the legislation that has been offered up. As those concerns are vocalized and dessiminated, the more opposition sectors will pop up--with the elderly being just the latest in a long list. I don't think the Democrats can regain the momentum--at least not without a major change in their tactics, tone and most importantly the content of their plan.
