From the UK: If Mitt Romney doesn’t like us, we shouldn’t care
Mitt Romney is perhaps the only politician who could start a trip that was supposed to be a charm offensive by being utterly devoid of charm and mildly offensive.
His derisory comments questioning Britain’s preparedness for the Olympics in an interview with NBC were a strange way to build bridges with a country that he says should be restored as the umbilical ally of the United States, and a strange way to demonstrate the persuasive qualities needed as leader of the free world.
Way to impress your fellow Anglo-Saxons, Mitty!

3. He didn't know the Labour Leader he was meeting with's
name, either. He called him "Mr. Leader". How freaking hard is it to familiarize yourself with the name of a foreign leader you are meeting with? Ed Milliband, Mitt. He at least took the opportunity to find out who you were.

6. Romney is all too knowable already.
I can't believe he called Milliband "Mr. Leader."
I get the feeling that Mitt never learned any
social or diplomatic skills whatsoever and
doesn't think he needs to because he's, well,
rich, successful, arrogant, and entitled to get
away with anything. What a jerk.
