In battle of speeches Obama is losing

For all his oratorical gifts, the debate over the debt ceiling has turned into something like the debate over his health care bill.  The more Obama talks, the more he sinks in the polls.  He is just not persuasive on the issue of taxes and spending.

His approval rating continues to sink with Gallup putting him at 43 percent.  The LA Times reports that Obama's base is crumbling too.  Rasmussen continues to show Republicans lead Democrats on the generic ballot.

Obama would be wise to take the deal Boehner offered him.  He needs to put this debate behind him before he sinks further in the polls.
