JERUSALEM (AP) - Mitt Romney says that if he worried about what reporters thought of him, he wouldn't get much sleep.
He says he's sleeping just fine.
The U.S. presidential candidate tells CBS' "Face the Nation" that he isn't sweating the upcoming Newsweek magazine cover that leads with "Romney: The Wimp Factor."
He says the media tried a similar criticism of President George H.W. Bush. Romney says Bush "was a pretty great president" who was not a wimp.
A 1987 Newsweek profile featured a profile of then-Vice President Bush with the title _ "Fighting the `Wimp Factor.'"
Asked whether he had ever been called wimp, Romney says the Newsweek cover is a first.
Romney is in Israel on an international trip set to introduce him on the world stage.
