Mitt Romney called the president's campaign slogan "absurd" on FOX News as the presumptive GOP nominee made the rounds of conservative media Tuesday morning.

"He's had a number of very revealing comments that show just how far out of touch he is with what's happening in the country," Romney said on FOX News Channel, seizing on President Barack Obama's statement last week that the private sector was "doing fine."

Romney said, given the amount of economic pain families still face, Obama's campaign slogan -- "Forward" -- was "absurd."

"The president needs to go out and talk to people, not just do fundraisers," Romney added.

Of course, Romney has been on his own fundraising blitz. He outraised the president last month, partly thanks to a schedule jam-packed with fundraisers and light on public campaigning.

But Tuesday's round of interviews, which also included conservative radio hosts Dom Giordano and Neal Boortz, highlights the campaign's media strategy to rely heavily on conservative hosts to push their message.

In a radio interview with Boortz, Romney stuck largely to his stump speech, pledging to repeal Obama's health care law and approve the Keystone Pipeline.
