Romney: ‘It Kills Me’ Not to Be President



Text  



Mitt Romney castigated President Obama today for campaigning, not governing.

“Right now, I wish I were there,” Romney said on Fox News Sunday. “It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House, doing what needs to be done. The president is the leader of the nation, the president brings people together, does the deals, does the trades, knocks the heads together.”

“The president leads and I don’t see that kind of leadership happening right now,” he added. Instead, what Romney sees Obama as doing is “campaigning.”

“He’s campaigning,” Romney said, “he’s the only one that can say to his own party, ‘look, you guys, I need you on this’ and get some Republicans aside and say, pull them off one by one.”
