Romney Hammers Obama For ‘Can’t Change DC’

From Yahoo News:


Romney rips Obama on ‘can’t change Washington’

By Olivier Knox | September 20, 2012

Mitt Romney pounded President Barack Obama for saying, “You can’t change Washington from the inside” at a rally in the sweltering Sarasota heat on Thursday. And he proudly promised Florida voters that he would “get the job done” where the Democrat did not.

“We face a Washington that’s broken, that can’t get the job done,” the former Massachusetts governor told some 4,600 supporters. “The president today threw in the white flag of surrender again. He said he can’t change Washington from the inside. He can only change it from outside.

“Well, we’re going to give him that chance in November! He’s going outside!” Romney said to cheers from the crowd. “I can change Washington, I will change Washington! We’ll get the job done from the inside! Republicans and Democrats will come together!” …

Romney painted [Obama’s] comment not as a testament to grass-roots activism, but as a betrayal of the “Hope and Change” vision and “Yes We Can” slogan from Obama’s history-making 2008 run for the White House.

You see? Obama was really commending grassroots activism. Like the Tea Party. But that vicious Mitt Romney has to twist his words.

“His slogan was ‘Yes We Can,'” said Romney. “His slogan now is ‘No I Can’t.’ He went from the president of change to the president who can’t get change.

“The president of the United States says he can’t change Washington from the inside,” continued Romney, who repeated that line more than once during the rally. “Isn’t that amazing? No wonder he’s had such a hard time over these last four years.”

Lis [sic] Smith, an Obama campaign spokeswoman, said in a release that Romney is “once again” taking the president’s words out of context.

That’s what they always says. Obama’s flacks are broken records, just like their boss.

“What the president said today is no different than what he has been saying for many years—that change comes from outside Washington, not inside,” said Smith…

Obama has been saying the same things for so long he has forgotten that he is now the ultimate Washington insider. He is the President.

    Yes, this administration has been full of gaffes and missteps and the MSM never calls them on it, Romney needs to take it to them. I started a blog the other day (2 days ago) to make fun of the media and this is exactly the kind of statement by Obama that needs to be used against him.
