Mitt Romney Blasts Obama In First Post-Election Interview
Mitt and Ann Romney had their very first interview since Mitt lost the presidential election.
The Romney’s were asked what it was like to suddenly be out of the spotlight after that tough losing battle.
Mitt said, "We were on a roller coaster, exciting, thrilling with all those ups and downs! But the ride ends and you get off. Can we be on a roller coaster the rest of our lives? No, the ride's over."
Ann said, "It's an adjustment, but I think it's one we've done well. It was a lot of energy and passion, and suddenly it was nothing. But the good news is we like each other."
In an exclusive interview with Chris Wallace airing on Fox News on Sunday, Romney is critical of the job President Obama is doing.
Wallace from Fox News asked, "How do you think the president has handled the sequester, the $85 billion in automatic spending cuts?"
Mitt said, "Well no one can think that's a success for the president. He didn't think it would happen, but its happening.”
And says he's frustrated by Obama’s poor relationship with Republicans.
Mitt said, "To date what we’ve seen is the president campaigning to the American people. Doing rallies around the country. Flying around the country and berating republicans.”
Meanwhile, the president expressed his own frustrations over the struggle for a deficit-reduction agreement.
On Friday, Obama said, "I am not a dictator. I’m the president. ‘What I can't do is force Congress to do the right thing’."
Meanwhile, Michelle Obama is speaking out about all that controversy over her appearance on the Oscars®.
The first lady tells the i.Village website she's not surprised by the criticism she's gotten.
Michelle said, "That’s just the nature of life. We live in a time of bloggers and tweeters and 24-hour news. Everyone has a voice and it’s a big one. It's good. But at any given point, somebody's not gonna like what you do."
But she's sick and tired of all the fuss over her bangs.
Michelle said, "It's a haircut, I’m sorry. I don't know what to tell you."
