Romney: Obama's 'going after me'

(CNN) – Mitt Romney accused President Barack Obama of waging a "personal attack campaign" in the 2012 battle for the White House.

"The president wants to make this a personal attack campaign. He's going after me as an individual," the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said in an interview that aired on Fox News Tuesday. "Look, I'm an American. I love this country."

On the campaign trail, Romney often says he respects Obama's actions as a husband and father, while he disagrees with his policies.

And on Tuesday, Romney once again pitched himself as the candidate who can improve the economy and create jobs in the U.S.

"I have experience in the economy that's going to help me get good jobs for Americans so we can be secure again," Romney said.

    So who is he supposed to go after, Nixon? Of course he's going after Romney the person, because Romney the person is the person who wants to turn America into an Imperial Warfare Corporocracy.

    romney, somebody needs to pick on you, you rich spoiled brat. You dont care about politics, you just want to be on the glory train. Rich people dont know what us 99%s are going through. People need help with their health issues, all the way down to being homeless, because a big bank screwed up. OBAMA in 2012. vietnam veterans are in this middle class, but we are blown off by the VA, cause they dont want to pay for disabilities. plain and simple.
