Mitt Romney Still Mudslinging At President Barack Obama
Mitt Romney admits he bungled his bid for the White House — but he hasn’t stopped tossing campaign-style mud at President Obama.
In his first TV interview since his Election Day defeat, Romney criticized Obama for “berating Republicans and blaming and pointing” rather than leading the way to a compromise over $85 billion in across-the-board budget cuts that took effect Friday.
“Nero is fiddling,” Romney said in a taped interview for “Fox News Sunday,” comparing his former rival to the evil Roman emperor who legendarily played his fiddle as Rome burned.
In the Fox spot, in which his wife Ann also fielded questions from host Chris Wallace, Romney copped to numerous failures during his campaign. Those included his inability to effectively appeal to Latino and black voters, and shooting himself in the foot by calling “47%” of the country moochers.
Just as he did on the campaign trail, the former private-equity superstar suggested that if he were calling the shots in the Oval Office, he would be doing a better job of working to end the fiscal gridlock on Capitol Hill.
“I look at what’s happening right now, I wish I were there,” he said, referring to the partisan-fueled impasse that prevented lawmakers from reaching a deal to reconsider the automatic cuts to domestic and defense spending, known as the sequester.
“It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House doing what needs to be done.”
Awwww poor thang…FOH
