Mitt Romney pounced on President Obama’s comment that he “can’t change Washington from the inside” by noting the difference between that remark and the promise of Obama’s 2008 campaign.
“The President today threw in the white flag of surrender again,” Romney said during a Florida campaign stop. “He said he can’t change Washington from inside. He can only change it from outside. Well, we’re going to give him that chance in November. He’s going outside.”
Obama made the comment at a Univision town hall today. “The most important lesson I’ve learned is, you can’t change Washington from the inside,” he said. “You can only change it from the outside.”
“We’ll get the job done from the inside – Republicans and Democrats will come together,” Romney continued today. “He can’t do it. His slogan was ‘Yes, we can.’ His slogan now is ‘No, I can’t.’ This is time for a new president.”
