Barack Obama was questioned about his failures as President on Thursday night during a candidate forum, and the President said his biggest failure was not being able to overhaul the immigration system.

Addressing a large Latino television audience, Obama was able to take shots at Mitt Romney, who has been under fire recently after making some off the cuff comments at a fundraising event.

Obama said Romney hasn’t “gotten around a lot” if he believes that 47 per cent of Americans consider themselves victims and entitled to government help.

Obama said Americans pay payroll taxes, gas taxes and state and sales taxes. He noted that those who don’t pay income taxes include workers who don’t make enough money to qualify, older Americans and students.

“When you express an attitude that half the country considers itself victims, that somehow they want to be dependent on government, my thinking is maybe you haven’t gotten around a lot,” Obama said during an interview with Spanish language channel Univision.

Obama, while mentioning his shortcomings, also spoke of his successes as President.

“So something that I’d really like to concentrate on in my second term is being in a much more constant conversation with the American people so that they can put pressure on Congress to help move some of these issues forward,” he said.
