Romney: I’m Only Out of Touch With Obama

Mitt Romney took the opportunity during an interview with Fox News on Wednesday to push back against President Obama, saying the only person he was “out of touch with is Barack Obama.” Romney was responding to the continued charge that he doesn’t have connections with grassroots voters, adding, “I’m in touch with the American people." Romney has taken some heat on the campaign trail for talking about friends who own NASCAR teams and saying his wife owns two Cadillacs. The former Massachusetts governor added that Obama’s presidency is a “throwback” to the big-government, welfare state under Jimmy Carter.
