Sen. Orrin Hatch told Newsmax.TV in an exclusive interview that Mitt Romney has been a “success at everything he’s ever done” and is “one of the most exceptional people” he has ever met and just has to be himself in order to win the presidency. Hatch also said he is “disappointed” in President Barack Obama for running a negative campaign and America is on track to be “worse than Greece” if he gets re-elected.

“I’m disappointed in the president and not so much him as the people around him that are doing this,” the Utah Republican said, referring to Obama’s attacks on Romney. “But, they couldn’t do it without him. And I don’t think the super PACs could do it without him either, and super committees. I’m disappointed in him.”
