Obama's Press Conference on the Tax Cuts (VIDEO)

Obama held a press conference yesterday to explain the decision to extend the Bush Tax cuts and to explain just how the hell we got here.  He breaks down the conflict between his desired plan, which was to help the unemployed and middle-class through tax breaks and unemployment benefits, vs. the Republican plan, which was to give tax breaks to the wealthiest 2% and the infamous "trickle-down" economic theory.

After you listen to the intro, jump ahead to a few seconds before the 28:00 minute mark and play to the end from there.  Does he finally get the narrative right here or is this too little too late?

Check out the video after the jump:
