Seems like Mitt is not winning over the British:

Quote:

On day three of his overseas tour, Mitt Romney woke up to unfriendly headlines from the British media, who continue to trash him for telling NBC News that he found preparations for the Olympics here "disconcerting."

"Mitt the Twit," declared The Sun tabloid, condemning Romney as a "wannabe president."

The Independent headlined their take on Romney's trip, "Romneyshambles"—accusing him of not only committing a diplomatic gaffe but later "the cardinal sin of U.S. politics, flip-flopping" on his criticism.

The Daily Telegraph suggested Romney's "Olympic gaffe" had overshadowed his trip to London.

Meanwhile, the conservative Daily Mail slammed Romney as "devoid of charm, offensive and a wazzock."

Geez, that's what the conservatives are saying?

Next stop: Russia!

Onward and upward for "Mitt The Twit"!

Romney's wife Ann owns a ballet-dancing horse which is not helping his image with beer guzzling down home types either. But I must say he has made the election so much fun! I am hooked on what he has to say next, and am glued to the internet for his next pronouncement. Hop fully he doesn't go to Russia and say "Mr. Leader, the Wall must come down!" or something.

This is incredible: he sets out to make the impression that he will be the next commander in chief and to set up his reputation and it has all backfired. Wonder why FOX and the entire FOX cheerleading squad here have yet to speak about this and defend their infallible candidate.

In way it won't matter because it's not the British who will elect the president. However, should a major conflict arise where the US needs UK assistance, perhaps the British will at least think about it before answering.

He'll go to China and ask for the Great Wall to be torn down.

Much of his core base will share that opinion, but it's the swing voters who matter, and I think Mitt's twitty behavior sends a negative message if not outright cringes to the swing voters.

Apart from his flat footedness, what surprises is that he's 'behind the news agenda'.
G4S screwed up - big surprise.
Troops - who are trained to do effective, rapid bag searches in far more difficult conditions - take their place.
Olympics become safer.

Had he cracked a wry joke followed by 'but I'm confident that it's all OK now', there would likely have been no response.

Please, we all know that line the Romney campaign keeps touting was taken completely out of context. Go look up what Thomas Paine had to say about the building of property.

I would say accidentally divulging a secret meeting and royally (hah pun) offending one of the country's biggest allies, on their own turf, is a slightly bigger faux pas.

This applies to both sides. The political smear garbage is not just pathetic, but downright sad. It's all about smearing someone.

Yes, disagree with their policies and question their actions, but leave the man/woman alone, and I'm including Obama and Michelle.

Romney's comments in the UK and in a book a few years ago as to the UK, to me show a person who is narrow minded but also trying to boost the idea of 'American Exceptionalism', that Europe is too 'socialist' and the USA is superior to all others, and was for USA voters consumption.

His disclosure as to meeting with the head of MI 6 was intentional to show that he is to be considered the equal to the sitting President as to having privy to certain confidential and top secret information, especially as to terrorism.

His criticizing the way the Olympics in the UK was to make himself look like he was so great in his running the 2002 Winter Olympics, showing business leadership, that there were few problems. Of course only 5 months after 9/11/01, you probably had a lot of pressure on everyone to do well and you had huge Fedeal investment in security.

Of course I doubt he will be as mumbled mouth in Israel, he will just say yes and boost their right wing leaders, something he is comfortable with.

I wonder what boneheaded thing he will say in Poland...

The criticisms that Romney gave on the Olympics came straight from the Washington Post:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports...s/2012/07/12/gJQAhc5ofW_story.html

Don't bother clicking on the link - they have promptly sent it down the memory hole. But here is a screen capture of it:

http://floppingaces.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/what-else-can-go-wrong-1024x682.jpg

And let's remember that Romney does know something about organizing an olympic games.

And also that it was not Romney that gave a bunch of NTSC DVDs to the Prime Minister as a gift, or an IPod full of his own speeches to the Queen.

There's an old saying that goes something like "better keep your mouth shut and let people think you're a fool, rather than opening it and removing all doubt!".

Unfortunately, Mitt opened his mouth and he did so in relation to something which the British establishment is very proud of and focused on making work (the Olympics); those comments won't be soon forgotten. It's often said that the Conservatives/Tories in the UK are closer to the Republicans, but I think that few in the current UK government would welcome Romney as President. So much for the special relationship, which Romney touted some weeks back.
