Romney Emerges from Seclusion to Whine About Obama 'Berating Republicans'

In his first public comments since his Election Day defeat, Mitt Romney is criticizing President Barack Obama for "berating Republicans" instead of leading.

The former Republican presidential nominee tells Fox News that Washington's latest budget battle wasn't "a success" for the president.

Obama rallied against a series of deep federal spending cuts but couldn't convince Congress to adopt an alternative. The cuts begin to take effect Friday.

In an interview scheduled to air Friday evening, Romney says Obama has been, quote, "berating Republicans and blaming and pointing." The former Massachusetts governor calls on the president to instead, quote, "lead the nation and to bring Republicans and Democrats together."

Romney says it's a job only Obama can do.

The former Presidential candidate also spoke about the campaign, and told Wallace the end of the 2012 presidential race was like getting off a roller coaster. 

"We were on a roller coaster, exciting and thrilling, ups and downs. But the ride ends," Romney said. "And then you get off. And it's not like, oh, can't we be on a roller coaster the rest of our life? It's like, no, the ride's over." 

Romney has been living in seclusion in California since November.
