Ann Romney said assertions by Obama campaign officials that Mitt Romney lied during last week's debate were "poor sportsmanship," a comment that came in an interview set to air Wednesday morning on Fox News Channel's "American Newsroom."
“I mean, lied about what?" Romney said to host Martha MacCallum. "This is something he’s been saying all along. This is what he believes. This is his policy, these are his statements. I mean, lie, it’s sort of like someone that’s, you know, in the sandbox that like lost the game and they’re just going to kick sand in someone’s face and say, ‘you liar.’ I mean, it’s like they lost, and so now they just are going to say, okay, the game, we didn’t like the game."
Ann Romney also said the debate was the first time Americans could see her husband as she sees him, outside what she called mischaracterizations and attacks by the Obama campaign and the media.
"In particular with women, I think, they got to see something that was evident at that debate, which was leadership, competency, someone that was energized, energetic, ready to go and tackle the job."
