WASHINGTON – Mitt Romney can’t disavow the conservative views he embraced as candidate during the Republican presidential primaries, President Obama says in a new interview. However, Mr. Obama acknowledges that he too is struggling against public skepticism because of the slow economic recovery.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Mr. Obama covered a range of topics, from his relations with the Pentagon to his reflections on race to his two acclaimed though abbreviated moments of public singing.

“I can sing,” he said matter-of-factly. “I wasn’t worried about being able to hit those notes.”

The interview, conducted earlier this month by Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner, will appear in the issue of the magazine that hits newsstands Friday. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the interview ahead of publication.
