During an interview with Fox News on Sunday, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney appeared with his wife Ann Romney, who blamed the media for her husband's loss in the 2012 election (video below).
“I’m happy to blame the media,” Ann Romney said, according to RawStory.com.
“Do you think the media was in the tank for Barack Obama?” asked Fox News host Chris Wallace.
“Anytime you’re running for office, you always think you’re being portrayed unfairly,” Ann Romney said. “And of course on our side, we believe that there’s more bias in favor of the other side. I think that’s a pretty universally felt opinion.”
“[Mitt] is an exceptional, wonderful person. He really is a selfless person that really, truly cared about the American people… And for him to be portrayed in a very negative light, in another way, was very hard.”
“He has enormous skill sets in dealing with difficult issues, and I totally believe at this moment if he were there in the office that we would not be facing sequestration right now.”
Ann Romney did not mention that her husband had sent thousands of people to the unemployment lines when he was with Bain Capital, which bought, sold and liquidated companies for profit. Nor did she mention her husband's infamous attack on the "47% percent" of the country.
For his part, Mitt Romney admitted that he underestimated how popular Obamacare was with people who have "lower incomes."
"I think the Obamacare attractiveness and feature was something we underestimated, particularly among lower incomes," said Mitt Romney. "And, uh, just didn’t do as good a job in connecting with that audience as we should have."
