Carl Lewis on Rmoney :"I swear, sometimes I think some Americans shouldn't leave the country."

Carl Lewis jumps into Romney row

(AFP) 1 hour ago

LONDON US athletics legend Carl Lewis suggested Friday that Mitt Romney should have stayed away from the Olympics after the White House hopeful offended organisers by saying London was underprepared.

Romney, the Republican former governor of Massachusets, sparked widespread criticism in Britain after saying on Wednesday that there were "disconcerting" reports about London's ability to stage the Games.

Ahead of the opening ceremony on Friday, nine-time Olympic gold medal winner Lewis suggested Romney should have stayed at home.

"Every Olympics is ready, I don't care whatever he said," Lewis told Britain's Independent newspaper.

"I swear, sometimes I think some Americans shouldn't leave the country. Are you kidding me? Stay home if you don't know what to say."

2. LOL I hope people who think he's so great with words and such a stateman

are paying attention.

Meanwhile, they're bashing Obama for accidentally saying "that" instead of "those."

4. What? Doesn't everybody feel relieved that Mitt has shown them foreigners

that America is still on top and we never have to apologize for anything?

5. see how it's being played down in the media?

Washington Post said that Londoners were enthusiastic (fundraisers/bankers). I expect the voters won't see the fall out from Romney's trip.
