Romney unworried about Newsweek 'wimp' cover
The Republican presidential candidate tells CBS TV's 'Face the Nation' that he isn't sweating the upcoming Newsweek magazine cover that leads with 'Romney: The Wimp Factor.'
JERUSALEM — Mitt Romney says that if he worried about what reporters thought of him, he wouldn't get much sleep.
He says he's sleeping just fine.
He says the media tried a similar criticism of President George H.W. Bush. Romney says Bush "was a pretty great president" who was not a wimp.
A 1987 Newsweek profile featured a profile of then-Vice President Bush with the title — "Fighting the 'WimpFactor.'"
Asked whether he had ever been called a wimp, Romney says the Newsweek cover is a first.
Romney is in Israel on an international trip set to introduce him on the world stage.
