“He upon becoming governor — excuse me, president last time,” Romney said, according to media reports.
Romney than used the gaffe to his advantage, saying that a gubernatorial stretch might have provided Obama with the proper experience needed to govern.
“Governor might have been a better job for him to have started with,” Romney joked.
“I say that because I actually think you learn from experience. I think it helps to have been in business before you actually start to run something in government. And then after you’ve done something in government, it helps to start perhaps a little lower level before you become president,” he added.
