Asked in New Hampshire what he thought of first lady Michelle Obama's veiled barbs Tuesday night, Mitt Romney demurred.

"I didn't see that and I'm certainly not going to make any comments about the first lady's speech other than that I respect her, think she's a lovely person and a fine mom," he told reporters. 

Romney later told Fox News, "I didn’t hear Michelle Obama’s speech, but I sure heard Ann’s; and it was great."
