In response to Obama's whinge that he can't change Washington from the inside, Romney (ever the deal-maker) suggests a win-win - come November, let's get Barack working on changing it from the outside.
Nice to see Romney hit the hanging curve.

I don't know what a whinge is yet, but I'm willing to learn.
This is the post of the day, for me at least:
@BarackObama I'm with the guy whose middle east policy isn't "VEGAS!" Thanks #caring

This comment should have gone here. (I blame Bush)
Was instructive to listen to the Radio News breaks during the dog walk today, to see how the MSM makes their sausage.
On first report, from whatever alphabet network I was listening to, we got this Obama statement: "You can’t change Washington from the inside, you can only change it from the outside."
This was immediately followed up by Mitt's capitalizing on that statement: "The President today threw in the white flag of surrender again. 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...I will change Washington."
Great job Mitt. Good reporting.
When the second news break came around, an hour later:
Obama: "My biggest failure is that we haven’t gotten comprehensive immigration reform done,”
Followed by comments by "Romney on the Campaign Trail": "I can change Washington. I will change Washington."
That sound bite of Mitt's seemed decent, but it lost it's punch since it wasn't shown to be in response to anything Obama said.
At the third News Break, an hour later:
Obama: "My biggest failure is that we haven’t gotten comprehensive immigration reform done, But it’s not for lack of trying or desire.”
The newsreader then said that the President blamed it on Republican's in Congress's refusal to help.
Then came this Romney soundbite: "The President today threw in the white flag of surrender again. "
That was it.
So MItt''s excellent response and rebuttal to Obama's "can't get it done in Washington" statement, was completely changed within the span of 3 news segments, to now being a Reporter edited assist to help Obama damn Republican's on Immigration, followed by an out of context quote by Mitt Romney, which seemed gratuitous and vapid because the target it was aimed at was completely removed by Media editing.
Thought it worth bringing this up just to illustrate how they build their propaganda meme's in real time.

Melinda, if you are checking back, my understanding is that "whinging" is a Britishism for whining.
