Gibbs: Obama 'Stopped Trying' to Change Washington Long Ago
8:17 AM, Jan 28, 2014 • By DANIEL HALPER

Former press secretary Robert Gibbs said today on TV that President Obama and his White House "long ago" gave up on "trying" to change Washington:

Gibbs first thanked God that he's no longer working in this White House, then host Willie Giest asked, "But you know the president very well. We know what this poll says about how the country is feeling about him. How is he feeling about the country right now? I mean, this is a guy who came in five years ago saying change comes from outside Washington. We are going to break the fever, we are going to change the way Washington does business, we are going to get things done. And he's learned some pretty hard lessons in how Washington actually works or doesn't work."

"Well, I think, you know, the ability to change Washington, I think, is something that long ago the White House sort of stopped trying to do and whether or not that's a good thing, we will look back on history," Gibbs replied.

He's blowing smoke on reality.  Obama is heavily involved in "CHANGING WASHINGTON" just not in a Constitutional or positive way and Gibbs knows it.  He just doesn't want to become close to the IRS by saying otherwise. :jail:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
