◼ Romney: Obama’s new slogan is ‘no, I can’t’ - Joel Gehrke/Washington Examiner @Joelmentum
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.”

◼ Obama refuses to admit that he broke his promise to Hispanic voters - Joel Gehrke/Washington Examiner @Joelmentum
President Obama refused to admit that he broke his 2008 promise to get an immigration bill passed in his first year in office, as he blamed Republicans and the economy for thwarting him and maintained that he “did not make a promise that I would get everything done 100 percent when I was elected.”
“I want you first of all to acknowledge that you did not keep your promise,” the Univision town hall moderator told Obama today.
“That was before the economy was on the verge of collapse,” Obama replied. “That took up a huge amount of time in the first year.” He also said he “did not expect” Republicans to oppose his immigration proposals unanimously. “I’m happy to take responsibility for being naive,” he said, even though Democrats had a supermajority in the Senate and did not need a single Republican vote to pass a bill
