Mitt Romney weighs in on scandals with Leno: ‘Not a fan of president’

Former Gov. Mitt Romney, the Republican party’s presidential nominee in 2012, was a guest on Friday’s broadcast of “The Tonight Show.”

Host Jay Leno asked Romney about the AP, IRS and Benghazi scandals, to which Romney shares his opinion of how President Obama is handling these issues.

At one point, captured in the video below, Leno asked Romney what he thinks Obama has done well. Romney points to the handling of the terrorist attack in Boston and mentions education, but quickly adds that he is “not a fan.”

I’m not a fan of the president, in case you didn’t know that,” he told Leno. “But look, I believe he cares for the country and wants to make America a better place for the American people. But I think he’s not being successful as he would have hoped to have been.”

Romney then adds, “I wish he were more focused on doing what’s necessary to keep America strong and to grow our economy and to get people back to work. There are a lot of people hurting.”

Interestingly, NBC titles the video: “Mitt Romney compliments Obama”

Romney would send out this “tweet” afterwards, with the attached picture:

“@anndromney and I had a great time on the #TonightShow. Thanks @jayleno for the lift home!”
