WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney is defending his years making millions in private business and says he'll handle attacks from Democrats who are trying to paint him as wealthy and out-of-touch.

In his first Sunday show interview in more than a year, Romney told Fox News Sunday that if he wins the nomination, he's prepared to handle characterizations by Democrats that he believes that "greed is good."

Romney says a photo shown of him and Bain Capital partners with dollar bills scattered everywhere was taken after they'd raised $37 million for the company's first venture capital fund. He says the fund was ultimately used to help build businesses and create jobs.

Romney says he's ready to handle attacks from Obama, saying "the president's going to go after me. I'll go after him."
