Romney Rips into the Man Who Beat Him: 'I Would Have Been a Better President

News

“I wish it were me."

Once upon a time, Mitt Romney ran for president.

He may have lost the race, but on Sunday, Romney appeared on "Fox News Sunday" where he tore into President Barack Obama's foreign policy — and noted that some of the things Obama had mocked him for, including when Romney said Russia posed a threat to the U.S., were now coming back to bite the president.

"I think the president is really out of touch with reality," Romney said. "He looked at Russia and though that was a friend he should reset relations with. He looked at Al Qaeda and said, 'They're on the run.' More recently he looked ISIS and said, 'Oh, they're just the junior varsity.'"

Romney said he's not planning to run for president again, but he stated firmly that he still thinks he was the right man for the job in 2012.

“There’s no question in my mind that I think I would have been a better president than Barack Obama has been,” Romney said. “I wish it were me. But my time has come — come and gone. I had that opportunity. I ran, I didn’t win. Now it’s time for someone else to pick up the baton.”
