Earlier this week I spent some time with and Romney in Massachusetts it was her first.
In depth interview since her husband became the presumptive nominee the Republican Party.
We have are talking to parts for you this morning in part one I asked her about the campaign.
Her role as the quote.
-- stabilize our.
And whether she was concerned that her family's Mormon faith will become an issue in what is expected to be a nasty head to head campaign.
I certainly hope people won't be doing -- I think that we recognize this Americans that there are certain things that are.
Primary into the to the freedoms and the liberties that we enjoy here in the religious freedom is one of the most important things as Americans we cherish.
You know what -- of the biggest criticism that and I heard -- this morning note.
Look at Mitt Romney he's so you know he's -- he's humor less that.
Surfaces all the time and discussions.
That has been as a candidate what do you think about that lucky enough to Begin with that and accepted and that's that the beauty of having me being able to get out there and and dispel some of these things that are not true I mean he is a funny guy and he's spontaneous and he's.
Got a great sense -- humor.
But I will tell you these are serious issues that he's talking about -- this is a serious race this is serious times time magazine built in wrote about -- husband and he talked about the fact that it was.
Somewhat annoying to have an early stages that he was always beating everybody else to work in the morning that he -- comment his -- office slightly beyond any -- -- -- one -- -- help what little and I.
It is that a side to him you know how hard he works he certainly does do his homework and he certainly is very bright as I think most people recognize that it's not just that he worked so hard.
Add everything that he does and he does his best and I think there was a motto.
From his father to it's always to your present job well.
And no matter what that job means I don't care for sweeping over seeking a broom you do your present job well and I think Mitt totally lives and bodies that that characterization.
When you think about foreign policy your husband has sort of been a little bit behind the president in the most recent polls some of that may come from these recent drone attacks and they.
-- attention to the anniversary.
The killing of a -- -- If you put him in that situation how do you see him respond you know very responsibly.
Very well informed.
And -- standing with our allies.
And recognizing the significance that America plays in the world and willing to take a risk I I think of course.
Vice president big big decision that's coming up have you spoken -- Husband about that it's always fun to talk about I will tell you it's not like I'm his advisors -- equality is that you would want him to look for in somebody I don't expect it tell us steer clear -- as far as there is somebody that your ratings are you rooting for anybody -- I I cannot do that I cannot.
I can I come down and say because it is going to be I think the decision -- gonna have to make.
And he's gonna have to make it in with you know a lot of information with gathering a lot of names and a lot of people that had that wonderful thing -- right now there's terrific.
People out there that are very qualified.
Is it important to that that the vice president's wife is somebody that you won't mind hanging out -- -- would be a plus.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And that he needs some time with you to kind of you know refocus and rejuvenate is that is that -- that is true.
And and by the way the boys at that my sons of the ones that have named Smith and his stabilizer so it's not just -- what do you do to stabilize we you know I I met I don't know I think -- this enjoy each other's company we relax each other when where we keep it each other also I think.
When we get together.
We recognize what's really important in life and what's really important my for relationships and friendships and her family.
And it's -- it's always such a good reminder and it takes a lot of the stress away when I'm there with him and were able to laugh a lot talk a lot about things that are outside of political grounds.
If it doesn't work out and -- -- here in Massachusetts perhaps next Mother's Day.
What will that mean to you.
You know will mean that we've given -- our college try and done our best we believe in this country we believe that the country's going in the right direction and we are.
Very good positive that it needs to be turned in a -- different direction.
But I will tell you I believe we will be in the White House and her husband has -- -- that he can fix let's rock.
I I was very concerned about that I -- I was actually worried because I thought there's some knee problems in this country right now and I was worried that even if he did win it would be too late.
And he assured me that it was getting late but it was not too late yet.
