Campaign 2012

Ann Romney: Mitt Didn’t Lie

In a wide-ranging interview on Wednesday, Ann Romney defended her husband against charges from President Obama’s campaign that he lied in his responses during last week’s debate.

“Lied about what?” said a laughing Ann Romney on Fox News. “This is something he's been saying all along. This is what he believes. This is his policy, this is his statements.”


She compared the Obama campaign's response to those of whiny children. “It's sort of like someone that, you know, in the sandbox that like lost the game and they are going to kick sand in someone's face and say, ‘You liar.’”

She added: “They lost. And now they are just going to say, okay, we didn't like the game. So -- to me it's poor sportsmanship.”

Ann Romney also said that at the 50-minute mark of the 90-minute debate, she nudged one of her sons and said, “It's 100 to zero right now.”


She also said that attacks from the Obama campaign and what she described as being “unfairly treated by the media” had not allowed people to see the real Mitt Romney. “I've been waiting for a very, very long time for people to see my husband as I see him and I think people got a chance to do that at the debate,” she said.
