Ann Romney blames the media for her husband Mitt Romney's loss in the 2012 election.
"I'm happy to blame the media," Ann Romney told Fox News's Chris Wallace on Sunday.
"The thing that was frustrating to me is that people didn't really get to know Mitt for who he was," Romney added. "People weren't allowed to see him for who he really was."

She also confirmed a report by Politico back in October when the campaign was in full swing, that Ann and son Tag had urged Mitt's campaign managers to employ a "let Mitt be Mitt," strategy.
"Well, of course, it was part true," Ann said about the story. "But it was not just the campaign's fault, I believe it was the media's fault as well. He was not being given a fair shake."
Mitt Romney was also interviewed in Sunday's Fox News interview. The 2012 Republican nominee for president discussed his confidence during the election.
"My heart said we were going to win," Mitt said.
Mr. Romney also opened up about his disappointment in the wake of defeat in the election.
"It's hard, it's emotional," said Mitt. "I mean there was such passion in the people who were helping us, I just felt, you know, we've really let them down."
Ann Romney also blames the recent financial crisis in Washington on the fact that her husband isn't in the White House.
"I totally believe at this moment if Mitt were there in the office that we would not be facing sequestration right now," Ann said.
Yet the Romneys are enjoying the quiet life.
"The good news is, fortunately we like each other and we like being with each other," she said.
