Romney Jabs Obama for ‘Berating Republicans’

RomneyBy STEVE PEOPLES, Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — In his first public comments since his Election Day defeat, Mitt Romney is criticizing President Barack Obama for “berating Republicans” instead of leading.

The former Republican presidential nominee tells Fox News that Washington’s latest budget battle wasn’t “a success” for the president.

Obama rallied against a series of deep federal spending cuts but couldn’t convince Congress to adopt an alternative. The cuts begin to take effect Friday.

In an interview scheduled to air Friday evening, Romney says Obama has been, quote, “berating Republicans and blaming and pointing.” The former Massachusetts governor calls on the president to instead, quote, “lead the nation and to bring Republicans and Democrats together.”

Romney says it’s a job only Obama can do.

Romney has been living in seclusion in California since November.

    Obama doesn’t want to do anything except blame republicans for all his issues. When congress was democratically controlled nothing got done either

    You can say what ever you need to about Romney but he’s not running our country. If he was you would be working and not have time for your mindless comments.
