Romney's Trip To England Is A Disaster So Far
If you read through the update you'll see that there is practically no one left un offended.

<<<<snip>>>

The dustup began Wednesday, as Romney, who ran the 2002 Salt Lake City games, said there were "disconcerting" signs in the days before this year's games.

"The stories about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials -- that obviously is not something which is encouraging," he told NBC News.

"Do they come together and celebrate the Olympic moment? And that's something which we only find out once the games actually begin," he said.

Cameron soon rebuked Romney. "We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course, it's easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere," he said.cont

1. As usual, the comments are the best part:
Only reinforces my opinion of Romney:



As usual, the comments are the best part:

"I remember the GOPTB mocking President Obama when he followed protocol while visiting other countries.

mitt is what happens when you haven't a clue about protocol."

"It's becoming pretty obvious who Mitt must pick for VP...Dan Quayle."

"I thought he was supposed to be improving relations with the Anglo-Saxons?"

And from this linked article: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/sport/olympics/article348...

"One diplomatic source said of the encounters: It is worse than Sarah Palin in terms of basic diplomacy.

:rofl:

2. Did You See The One That Compared His Trip
To National Lampoon's European Vacation?

Honestly this guy is so hapless it makes me wonder how he made so much money.

3. I Now See This As Karma
Since I've learned that a Romney adviser has said that Obama isn't Anglo-Saxon enough to understand the Brits. And yet it's Romney who is stepping in the mud. And Romney says he doesn't know who the adviser is who said this. So does that mean he wouldn't know who's in his admin or cabinet?

4. If Romney doesn't know who he sent to the UK as his advance person, he's unfit to be POTUS.
Maybe he should ask the press who made the remark then.

Romney is lying, which is his "go to" behavior.

This is an excuse not to fire the guy.

Neither Obama surrogates nor the media should let it go until Romney "finds out" who said made a blatantly racist remark about the POTUS abroad and fires him.

And if he doesn't know who made it, he should be finding out. That should be easy enough.

It's really that simple.
