Did he just lose the Presidency?….cough cough
As he battled Hillary Clinton for the nomination four years back he argued that she was an insider and no insider can change Washington from the inside. They’ve all been corrupted from the inside you see so ch-ch-change! was needed.
Bring an outsider, like himself, into Washington and he would ch-ch-change Washington.
Four years later and he admits that it was all bullcrap.
Hillary was promising change too, but you can’t believe an old establishment hand like her who’s spent 15 years inside the Beltway. Better to trust a young Chicago machine politician who hadn’t achieved anything except a nice speech at the 2004 convention and winning a Senate race in a blue state against Alan Keyes. It was a populist rhetorical gimmick, designed naturally to play off liberals’ apprehensions about the Clinton machine.
Well, the Romney campaign was quick to pounce on his gaffe and told it like it is.
If he’s not up to the task, let’s him return him to the “outside” so he can work for “change” there.
