Romney: Obama During Debates Will ‘Say Things That Aren’t True’

Mitt Romney told Good Morning America that he expects President Obama to “say things that aren’t true” during the presidential debates this fall.

“I’ve looked at prior debates,” Romney said. “And in that kind of case, it’s difficult to say, ‘Well, am I going to spend my time correcting things that aren’t quite accurate? Or am I going to spend my time talking about the things I want to talk about?’”

Romney also talked up his Republican sparring partner, Rob Portman, who is playing Obama in the practice debates. “… I will never debate Rob Portman again. He’s very good.”
