While campaigning for several Republican congressional candidates this week in West Virginia, Mitt Romney directed some harsh words at President Barack Obama when he said the president was doing “worse than even I expected.”
Romney’s appearance was eerily similar to the 2012 presidential campaign, including a crowd that chanted, “Mitt! Mitt! Mitt!” and protesters who called him a “fat cat,” according to Fox News.
The former Massachusetts governor cited the economy and foreign policy in an assessment of Obama’s performance.
“I was not a big fan of the president’s policies, as you know, either domestically or internationally,” Romney said. “But the results of his mistakes and errors, in my opinion, have been more severe than even I would have predicted.”
As seen in the video below the jump, Fox News liberal commentator Alan Colmes dismissed Romney’s remarks as being little more than sour grapes.
“He’s not the messenger at this point to be criticizing the guy who beat him,” Colmes said. “It is unseemly for him to be doing that.”
As for 2016, there was plenty of questions about whether Romney will run again or not.
“I’m not running,” he told reporters. “I’m expecting to be getting behind some good people or a good person who will be [the GOP presidential nominee].”
