President Barack Obama makes a startling admission at a campaign event in Florida last night.
“I think that I’ve learned some lessons over the last four years, and the most important lesson I’ve learned is that you can’t change Washington from the inside. You can only change it from the outside. That’s how I got elected. And that’s how the big accomplishments like health care got done.”
The president, who built his image on bringing ‘change’ to Washington, was asked to reflect upon his first term during a forum for Spanish-speaking cable channel Univision.
“That’s how I got elected,” Obama added. “And that’s how the big accomplishments like health care got done.”
GOP opponent Mitt Romney wasted little time offering a reaction.
"I couldn't believe it when the president of the United States said he couldn't get change from the inside," Romney said.
Romney said Obama's slogan has gone from “Yes we can” to “No I can’t.”
"I can change Washington, I will change Washington. We'll get the job from the inside. Republicans and Democrats will come together."
