Romney in London- What Next; Knock over Stonehenge?

Posted on July 26, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

“Mitt Romney went to London, riding his dressage pony, stuck a gilded feather in his cap and called it rigatoni! #RomneyShambles”

Seriously. It’s been that big a disaster and we still haven’t even gotten to the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony. For those so inclined, check out #RomneyShambles on Twitter- hilarious stuff.

Have you heard the latest on Romney’s Excellent Adventure? No, not the horse– oh, Mitt sure is making all kinds of friends on his European Vacation!

First he met up with Prime Minister David Cameron- and with all of the tact and political deftness we’ve seen from Rmoney all year, we got yet another keeper for the highlight reel:

Mitt Romney handed Barack Obama a potential gift for the US presidential election campaign when the presumptive Republican nominee blundered on his first diplomatic outing by questioning whether London was capable of staging a successful Olympic Games.

In a move that astonished Downing Street, hours before it laid on a special reception for Romney at No 10, he told NBC that “There are a few things that were disconcerting — 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.”

One senior Whitehall source said: “What a total shocker. We are speechless.”

But not for long, as PM Cameron fired back:

“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.”

London Mayor Boris Johnson also weighed in:

“People are coming from around the world and they’re seeing (us) and they’re seeing the greatest city on earth – aren’t they? And 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 7 years. I hear there’s a guy, 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!”

Waiting for Mitt’s full, unreserved apology:

For once, it can be said that FoxNews got a headline exactly right: Romney’s international trip could be a defining moment.

Indeed.
