Is Obama Backing Away from Promises of Hope, Change and 'Yes We Can'?
In 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama promised to bring change to Washington, D.C. But now it appears that President Obama is trying to walk back some of those comments.
"When I ran in 2008, I, in fact, did not say I would fix it. I said we could fix it," Obama said at a fundraising event last week in Los Angeles. "I didn't say, 'Yes, I can.' I said, 'Yes, we can.'"
"I just wonder if they're going to collect all the 'Yes We Can' bumper stickers and put quotes around the 'We' part," Harris Faulkner remarked on "Outnumbered" today. "I'm just a little bit confused about how you protect your legacy if you don't own it."
"He doesn't own anything, though," Jedediah Bila said. "He seems to have forgotten that he's been president this entire time."
She added that she understood that some people believed Obama's message of hope and change in 2008, but not the second time around in 2012.
"He's essentially throwing people who supported him under the bus," Andrea Tantaros said. "Does he own, as Harris says, anything? Does he own any responsibility?"
