“His biggest lesson, meanwhile, is that ‘you can’t change Washington from the inside.’ Wait a second. In the 2008 primaries, his whole argument with Hillary Clinton was over this exact question. She believed that you can change Washington from the inside and Barack Obama said you couldn’t.
For example, in a Nevada debate, Obama said he wasn’t a very organized person. But that didn’t matter because it was the president’s job to inspire people. The presidency ‘involves having a vision for where the country needs to go . . . and then being able to mobilize and inspire the American people to get behind that agenda for change.’…
Obama won that fight. But as president he conspicuously failed to inspire people, save for the tea parties who proceeded to drive a historic victory for the Republicans in 2010. For example, after over 50 speeches, statements and addresses on ObamaCare he never made it a popular piece of legislation.
And now he’s saying he had to learn an idea he never subscribed to was wrong. How introspective of him!”
