London Mayor Boris Johnson whacks Mitt Romney in front of 60,000 people

By ALEXANDER BURNS |
7/26/12 3:16 PM EDT

And now the mayor of London is joining the fun:



Speaking in front of 60,000 assembled in Hyde Park at a concert to mark the end of the Olympic Torch relay, the London Mayor reaffirmed the city's zeal for the historic event.

'There are some people coming from around the world who don't yet know if we are ready,' the Mr Johnson roared.

'There's a guy called Mitt Romney who wants to know whether we are ready. Are we ready? Yes we are!'

15. Unfortunately (in this case) those "people's" won't vote in this election.

 

But some of the U.K.'s wealthiest citizens may participate in our election through their corporations' superpac donations...with approval of the U.S. Supreme Court.

He has now done exactly what we expected him to do. Dang, what an embarrassment.....and only a glimpse of monumental gaffes that we would endure if he were in an official position to represent the people of this nation. Dang.

25. Mittens didn't go to the UK to get votes. He went there to get money.


He will call the trip a success--and by his standards, it will be a success. He will get the cash.

The vast majority in the United States won't hear what Mittens did in the UK.

The vast majority won't care what Mittens did in the UK.

We have to keep hammering how Mittens will offshore jobs and screw the working person.

I actually believe Mittens overseas is good for Mittens. Mittens won't be making gaffes here.

More fodder for my noncommercial website--www.Unfit-Mitt.com--which displays my political cartoons and illustrations (over 100) about the dishonest 2012 Romney/GOP campaign, FREE for use in websites, blogs, newsletters, etc.

35. The most remarkable thing about this is that it comes from a conservative.

And my experience with Britons is that Boris is considered to be a bumbling fool.

Add to it what Cameron said, and it makes the American conservative look like an absolute lunatic.
