Gibbs: Romney embarrassed the U.S. in London

Posted by
CNN's Ashley Killough

(CNN) – Robert Gibbs, senior adviser to President Barack Obama's re-election campaign, argued Sunday that Mitt Romney's recent trip to London was an embarrassment.

"Mitt Romney wondered aloud whether London was ready for the Olympics, and I think it's clear that voters in this country wonder aloud whether Mitt Romney is ready for the world," Gibbs said on ABC's "This Week."

Gibbs wasted no time Sunday morning going after Romney over the comment.

"To go overseas, stand in the country of our strongest ally–and the Olympics that they've been preparing years for–and question whether or not they're ready, does make you wonder whether or not he's ready to be commander in chief," the former White House press secretary said, later adding, "I thought it was embarrassing for our country."

1. As well as calling the country the wrong name

And blabbing about meeting with their intelligence agency

And not knowing who the party leaders are

And throwing his wife under the bus

4. Honestly, though, if you ask any Londoner

They will agree that their Mayor is odd and an eccentric

Remember, even a broken watch will be right sometimes

6. Big diff having an outsider say that. Think about it...

It's like having a Mom that is odd... and the family knows this and loves her. But your brother brings an acquaintance from work to her house and he proclaims at the dinner table that your Mom, who is sitting right there, is "odd and eccentric" and see how well that plays out.

3. So...

I guess we can assume that when Romney, falsely, accuses President Obama of not "knowing what it's like to be an American", Romney thinks the land of 'foot in mouth' disease only exists at home and not abroad?

8. He is the champion, my friends

 


London's Calling and they 
Can't get no satisfaction
London's Calling  and they 
Don't want to be misunderstood

He was a whiter shade of pale
As he played the immigrant song
It's us and them, but who are you
So get back to where you once belonged

London's Calling and they've
No sympathy for the devil
London's Calling and he 
Thinks he's back in the USSR

We gave him a ticket to ride
But the bitch is back
Baby you're a rich man
But money can't buy you love

London's Calling and 
He's on the stairway to heaven
London's Calling and 
This will be the last time

He said I wanna be your man
And would I lie to you baby
But rMoney, don't give me that do goody bullshit
And don't stand so close to me

London's Calling
London's Calling
London's Calling
