President Barack Obama responded to Mitt Romney's criticism of his remarks yesterday by saying, "We don't want an inside job in Washington, we want change in Washington."

Obama yesterday said, "The most important lesson I’ve learned is that you can’t change Washington from the inside. You can only change it from the outside."

Romney then followed by saying, "He can only change it from outside? Well, we're going to give him a chance in November. He's going outside!"
