romney1In an interview with Politico published today, Mitt Romney conceded that voters may think President Obama is more likable, but he reiterated that he’s not going to put on a charade to win over voters.

“I know there are some people who do a very good job acting and pretend they’re something they’re not,” Romney said. “You get what you see. I am who I am.”

Romney put his touch on Popeye’s famous “I yam what I yam” catchphrase three times in the 30-minute interview in defending his buttoned-up personality, according to Politico.

Romney will have the opportunity this week at the Republican National Convention to re-introduce himself to voters. In order to win voters’ trust and support, CBS News political director John Dickerson said Monday on “CBS This Morning,” Romney should use the convention to “maybe just tell the story of his life.” In spite of pleas for him to open up, Romney so far has been more focused on touting his resume.

Polls have repeatedly shown that voters find Mr. Obama more likable. The latest Washington Post poll shows that 64 percent of American adults said Mr. Obama “seems like the more friendly and likable person,” compared to just 25 percent who said Romney does.

“I don’t think everybody likes me,” Romney told Politico. “I don’t believe that, by any means. But I do believe that people of this country are looking for someone who can get the country growing again with more jobs and more take-home pay, and I think they realize this president had four years to do that. … He got every piece of legislation he wanted passed, and it didn’t work. I think they want someone who has a different record, and I do.”

  1. I love Mitt. It is so much fun to imitate his vampire voice every time he says “I’m Mitt Romney and I approve this ad”. It is going to be a great future and I have nothing to worry about unless I am sick, disabled or old or otherwise unable to get a job or have a friend or family member in the same situation. The world is glowing embers of kindness from this great man!

  2. He’s starting to sound a lot like McCain! Now thats a losing stradegy! I warned you not to knock off Santorum & Gingrich, so fast!
