Before a Hispanic audience at the Univision presidential forum in Florida, our president — the one who campaigned on “hope” and “change” — admitted to his inability to bring change to Washington, citing his belief that it is impossible to “change Washington from the inside.” And in saying so, he effectively made the case for a Romney presidency.
Team Romney was quick to respond to the comment as the video below shows. The question now is, will the media report on this obvious gaffe? We’ll wait and see.
Last Friday, the unemployment rate rose to 8.2 percent and 300,000 more people joined the long-term unemployed. One week later, President Obama said the private sector is doing fine. Only a president that presides over forty months of unemployment over 8 percent would think that the last jobs report is “doing fine.”
President Obama is completely out of touch with the middle class:
Some are calling this a major gaffe on the president’s part, while others are arguing that Obama was merely revealing his actual economic theory.
