Mitt Romney spoke with Fox News Sunday‘s Chris Wallace today, and he told the talk show how that the President is “still campaigning” and that it “kills” him to not be the President of the United States.
When asked by Wallace where he sees his political future with the GOP, Romney said:
“I want to have influence on getting our party to a position where we can be successful in solving the problems the country has.”
While Romney claims President Obama is “still campaigning,” he also sounded very much like a campaigner, telling Wallace:
“I still care and I still believe there are principles that we need to stand for. I look at what is happening right now. I wish I were there. 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, he brings people together and does the deals, does the trades, knocks the heads together and the president leads and, I don’t see that kind of leadership happening right now.”
Romney’s “campaigning” continued further as he noted:
“He’s campaigning, 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. We don’t have to have these gridlocks one after the other on issue after issue and it will take real leadership and people in both parties, will need to put aside political victories and start fighting for national victories.”
