The government would still be running and there would be no Obamacare if Mitt Romney had been elected president last year, says his wife, Ann Romney.
"We would not be in a shutdown," she said on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" Wednesday.
It's frustrating that Americans never got to see the real Mitt Romney, she said. "There’s so much vilifying that goes on in a campaign. You know that’s going to come," she said.
"But for me, at the end of the day, if people had honestly known he was the most capable candidate, that he would have made a difference, [that] he would have stopped Obamacare," the outcome might have been different, Romney said.
She is promoting her new cookbook, "The Romney Family Table," and says it's relevant to Washington's budget stalemate
"The book is about bringing people to the table. It’s about having the conversations," Romney said. "In Washington right now, with all the craziness, I would like to invite everyone to come to my table, sit down, have some coffeecake, and let's not get up from the table until we've got it figured out."
Shutdown Could Last for Weeks
