Facing a gap with the middle class, Mitt and Ann Romney told a television audience Sunday that they grocery shop on their own and that he does his own laundry and irons his own shirts.

Interviewed at their New Hampshire lake house, the Romneys told Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace that they love to shop at Costco, with Ann Romney divulging that she buys her husband's shirts at the bulk-sale retailer.

The GOP presidential nominee referred to a famous Popeye line when asked how he would respond to those who view him out of touch with middle-class America: "I am what I am, and that's all what I am."

Ann Romney also said her husband's true inner qualities showed when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
