Washington, Mar 3(ANI): Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is trying to project himself as primary care physician for an ailing nation in the run-up to the 2012 presidential race.
"If I were a doctor,and I saw somebody who was obviously suffering from some condition, I would want to do something to help. Well, my experience is not in medicine. My experience is in business," The New York Times quoted Romney, as saying.
He added that his goal is "to use what I've learned to try and help."
It would be difficult for Romney to convince voters, taking into account that he has been struggling with how to handle his immense wealth since he announced his candidature for the presidency in June last year.
But fellow Republicans claim that Romney's business experience would be more of an asset if he cast it in a different light.
He cannot change his private equity wealth "any more than he can change the color of his eyes," Steve Schmidt, who managed Senator John McCain's presidential campaign in 2008, said.
He added that : "He would be in a stronger position if he framed the race not through the prism of his biography but what his biography can bring to the American people."
A campaign adviser, Kevin Madden, said that Romney would be focusing less on himself than on voters.
"The debates or discussions about his personal success aren't relevant to the reasons he decided to run. The campaign will be successful as long as it aligns the reason he's running, the economy, with voters' main anxiety, which is that the economy is not living up to its full potential," Madden said.
