Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney offered his most scathing criticism yet of the man who defeated him in 2012, saying President Obama “can’t see reality from the fairway.”

During a Romney appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” host Chris Wallace pointed to a recent Gallup poll that showed voters would support Romney if they could do the 2012 election over and asked the former Massachusetts governor if Americans are having buyer’s remorse.

“I think they have some buyer’s remorse about President Obama,” Romney replied. “I’m not sure how they feel about me, but that’s kind of irrelevant. The real question is, how’s this president doing? And frankly they recognize the president has not been engaged.”

But Romney reserved his most stinging words for Obama’s lack of a coherent strategy to counter Islamic State terrorists who now control vast swaths of Iraq and Syria.

“We’ve fought long and hard to provide security and freedom for those people,” he said. “And yet, the president was, I don’t know, too busy on the golf course to pick up the phone and meet with the leaders around the world and to say what happens if. You know, the Pentagon was going through what if scenarios. But the president apparently wasn’t.”

Romney stayed with the golf theme, questioning Obama’s view of reality.

“I don’t know whether you can’t see reality from a fairway, but the president has not seen the reality internationally,” he said.

Which was only fitting, considering Obama squeezed in another round Saturday, his 38th outing this year and the 195th of his presidency, according to the White House Dossier.

In the same interview, Romney told Wallace that there was “no question” in his mind that he’d be a better president that Obama or Hillary Clinton,

“The American people may disagree with me,” he quipped.
