Obama grants TV interview to Roanoke station

President Obama gave a series of interviews to local TV stations across the nation Monday. No surprise that one of them was in the battleground state of Virginia.

It’s the third time the White House has invited regional TV stations for a day of interviews and tours.

Check out the WDBJ interview here. Obama speaks about the time he campaigned in the Martinsville areas in 2008.

Also, no surprise that Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney immediately attacked what Obama said.

“After four consecutive months of declining job growth and a recent cascade of bad economic news, President Obama claims we are making ‘progress’ on the economy,” Romney spokesman Curt Cashour said. “For someone who thinks that ‘the private sector is doing fine,’ this makes sense. For the twenty-three million Americans struggling for work, it makes no sense.”
