Mimi Murphy: "How has your experience in the private sector, how would that make you the right man for this job?"
Governor Romney: "I haven't just debated the economy. I haven't just studied it in school. I haven't just talked about it in a subcommittee of Congress. I've actually lived in the real economy."
MM: "President Obama has said he needs four more years. He hasn't had enough time to get his policies in place. How do you respond to that?"
Romney: "Well he had the first two years with a democratic house and a democratic senate. He was able to do whatever he wanted to do and instead of focusing on the economy and getting jobs for the American people, he focused on his makeover for healthcare.He focused on re-regulating financial services, he did everything but what we needed to do which is to get people working again with higher incomes. It didn't work. The American people recognize that his policies have meant higher gasoline prices, lower wages, higher unemployment on a chronic basis. Four more years of that we can't afford."
MM: "Mrs. Romney, life on the campaign trail has to be grueling, you're going through this again, it it any easier this time?"
Ann Romney: "I really made the commitment very seriously that I would never do this again last time so here we are. I have to keep reminding myself why we're doing it and it goes back to really believing that this country is in serious trouble and there's very few people that can do anything that can really make a huge difference and I really believe my husband can."
MM: "Thanks so much for your time today."
Romney: "Thanks Mimi, Good to be with you."
