Obama sells his Fiscal Cliff fix to the American people: Will it work?

With just 22 days until the Fiscal Cliff kicks in - we're hearing a lot of talk about talks between the President and the House Speaker behind closed doors, but publicly they seem to be talking over each other.

President Barack Obama in Detroit spoke Monday about his plan to raise taxes on families making over $250,000.

"That's a principle I won't compromise on because I'm not going to have a situation where the wealthiest among us including folks like me get to keep all our tax breaks," Obama said.

Is the tough talk road show working for the President?
