    WorldRomney goes to Europe, causes international stir

    LONDON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney caused a stir in Britain on Thursday by questioning whether the country is prepared to pull off the Olympic Games without a hitch and scheduling a fundraiser with the former leader of a troubled bank
    The meetings come a day after the Daily Telegraph published a story quoting an unidentified Romney campaign adviser saying the Republican believes the U.S. relationship with Britain is special because of shared "Anglo-Saxon heritage" that the adviser said the White House doesn't appreciate.

    Romney, however, quickly distanced himself from any such view. "I don't agree with whoever that adviser might be," Romney told NBC News, "but do agree that we have a very common bond between ourselves and Great Britain."
    Wow

    At a pre-Olympics rally in Hyde Park Thursday, London Mayor Boris Johnson openly mocked Romney's comments—calling him out by name to the crowd.

    "There are some people who are coming from around the world who don't yet know about all the preparations we've done to get London ready in the last seven years," Johnson said. "I hear there's a guy called Mitt Romney who wants to know whether we're ready. He wants to know whether we're ready. Are we ready?! Are we ready?! Yes, we are?!"

    Johnson's criticism comes just hours after British Prime Minister David Cameron offered a snippy response to Romney's comments, telling reporters," Of course it's easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere"—a comment widely interpreted to be a reference to Salt Lake City, where Romney ran the 2002 Winter Olympics.

    Ok, im not done. Stumbled across some new articles. Apparently people have created a twitter search about Romney with reporters linking articles through there and quotes from government sources. Here are some gems:

    Jason Febery ‏@JasonFebery According to my friends in Gloucestershire, Brits are already beginning to call Mitt Romney "the American Borat." #RomneyShambles

    Danielle Blake ‏@DCPlod
    Mitt Romney retroactively cancels visit to London. #RomneyShambles

    Nico Hines ‏@NicoHines
    #RomneyShambles British government quotes include: What a total shocker / We are speechless / Worse than Palin / Total car crash

    James Chapman (Mail) ‏@jameschappers
    Another verdict from one Romney meeting: 'Apparently devoid of charm, warmth, humour or sincerity' #romneyshambles #mitthitsthefan

    Cameron Addicott ‏@CameronAddicott Mitt Romney makes George Bush look like Aristotle.#RomneyShambles

    P M ‏@Pawelmorski
    Americans: This Mitt person is some sort of American Borat, right? #romneyshambles

    Darren Lewis ‏@BristolRed
    Dear America. Look we get the point ok! Sorry. OK, you send us back @piersmorgan and PLEASE you take back @MittRomney #romneyshambles

    Also, an article listing all the gaffees so far: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/us-n...rt-of-comments

    I'm rooting for Obama this time around because I'm sick of pro-corporation "jerb kreators" rulings and pro-big government rulings by the Supreme Court.

    What an arrogant idiot. What the hell was Romney thinking calling out the Olympics on the eve of going to London. I am sure his staff was watching that interview like "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

    The Republicans deserve to lose what is an utterly winnable election. The seriously need to be taught a lesson about pandering to the hard right in the primaries.
    Bachman has no business being in a presidential election
    Cain is a moron
    Gingrich is a crook
    Santorum is unelectable

    They did their best to not elect Romney because he is mediocre and too "liberal".
    The one guy that Obama's team was scared ****less about was Huntsman. Of course he was an afterthought because he didn't toss the radical right's salad.
    The irony is that if you look at his economic record in Utah he was more conservative than Romney.

    Rant Finished.

    Or America can grow some balls and begin to realize that there are more candidates than the two goons with the most money for ad campaigns instead of thinking their vote for an Independent candidate or even Ron Paul won't be for naught.
