He's Learning

Either one of Mr. Obama's handlers is slipping, or perhaps he's beginning to listen to people outside of the Presidential bubble.

The last thing I will say, though -- let me say this about health care and the health care debate, because I think it also bears on a whole lot of other issues. If you look at the package that we've presented -- and there's some stray cats and dogs that got in there that we were eliminating, we were in the process of eliminating. For example, we said from the start that it was going to be important for us to be consistent in saying to people if you can have your -- if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it, that you're not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making. And I think that some of the provisions that got snuck in might have violated that pledge. [emphasis added]

 It seems that even Mr. Obama understands that the Tea Party folks have actually read the bill and have a legitimate basis for their protest.  Now let's see if that understanding spawns any different behavior.
