Romney's Horrible Gaffes Are Still Trending All Over US Media (at least on the Internet)
Romney's Horrible Gaffes Are Still Trending All Over US Media
I'm still impressed by all the not-good US media coverage of Romney's First Foreign Trip, now known as Incompetents Abroad.
Romney was no doubt hoping that his Hindenberg-scale London disaster wouldn't leave much of an impression on Americans, but there's evidence that the story is sticking.
Here's a selection of items still topping the most-read/most-commented lists on US-based websites:
Most Commented at Business Insider: Mitt Romney's Trip To London Is A Total Disaster, And Here Are The Headlines To Prove It
"Most Popular" at The Blaze (Glenn Beck's website!): 'Incomprehensible': Charles Krauthammer ‘Out of Adjectives’ to Describe Romney Olympics Remark
"Most Read" at Slate: Why Romney’s Foreign Blunders Represent His True Worldview
Most Popular at the WaPo Politics: "Romney bans media from Jerusalem fundraiser, violating pre-established protocol." Whoever wrote that piece managed to sound actually quite annoyed in a straight-up news headline, signaling that Romney has pissed off his press entourage some more - having already pissed them off once in London.
How about the Israeli press? Here's Romney on A1 of the Jerusalem Post: "Romney arrives following rough start to foreign tour in London."
A final indignity: as I write this, #RomneyShambles is trending again on Twitter.
...the American story is one of perfectibility and striving for ever-greater fidelity to our ideals -- it is a journey from colony to republic, from slavery to freedom, from sexism to suffrage, from stark poverty to shared prosperity.

1. NOTHING on DC Caller
Just for yucks I checked bowtie Carlson's website, more or less the right-wing copy-cat of Huffington Post, to see stories or comments on how they would downplay the overseas gaffes, and found nothing. Not even a mention of Mountain Meadows Mitt f*ckkups. Not a word.
