President Obama Touts Changes In Internet, Making Life Easier For Us

President Obama was asked about the “fundamental changes” he campaigned about in 2008 during a recent interview on WFLA, a local news affiliate in Tampa. President Obama said he “has made a lot of progress” in making the government internet easier to navigate for people. “We’ve used the Internet more effectively to create more transparency so people know where their tax dollars are going. If they need a government service they don’t have to navigate through 50 websites, they can go to one website. So on those fronts we’ve done a lot, we’ve made a lot of progress,” Obama said. Then he admitted, “Where I have not been able to succeed so far, but I haven’t given up, is changing the tone in Congress, and creating an attitude between Democrats and Republicans where we focus on where do we agree, where are common sense solutions, lets stop trying to score political points or play to the next election instead of playing the long game. We haven’t been able to do that yet, and I am the first one to acknowledge that there are times where it can be awfully frustrating. But what gives me confidence is that’s where the American people are, they’ve got common sense. They’re focused on trying to find solutions instead of just scoring political points and hopefully, over time, politicians who take that same attitude will be rewarded.”
