(CNN)— Former presidential contender Mitt Romney increased his criticism of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama Wednesday taking direct aim at Obama’s experience, telling CNN’s John Roberts that “the presidency of the United States is not an internship.”
“He can read a prompter very well and energize a crowd,” said Romney. “But he has not accomplished anything during his life in terms of legislation, or leading an enterprise, or making a business work, or a city work, or a state work. He really has very little experience.”
The former Massachusetts governor, who has been mentioned as a possible running mate for presumptive Republican nominee John McCain, said voters will ultimately choose a candidate who has “been tested and proven” - a central theme of McCain’s primary and general election campaigns.
