Post Mitt Romney's Opinion on Great Britain

The more I hear about Mitt Romney, the more I'm beginning to dislike him:

Makes we wish I put the money down for citizenship so I could use my vote to keep Romney out and keep the other Brit hater in.
The more recent the insult the bigger the insult in my book, and I probably would have sent a bust of Churchill back too.

It is amusing how he's giving material to Obama...and making Boris look good

Good comment on CBS news tonight. Romney has turned his overseas trip into a disaster on the first day.

While emphatically not a Cameron fan, I have to say I like his comeback to Romney's comment on Olympics preparation:

"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 Olympics in the middle of nowhere." (Referring to Mitt's very own Salt Lake City games)

Ha, I thought the exact same thing!

It's remarkable how Romney's mind works (or doesn't). Granted he was only saying what most people were thinking... but on the same day you arrive on a semi-official trip?! Even worse it when the visit carried a not so subtle sub-text that he was visiting 'our friends' that Obama had treated so badly.

Check out the hashtag #romneyshambles on twitter. He's getting flack on all sides. Quite like Carl Lewis' quote suggesting there are some Americans who just shouldn't leave the country.

"I met with the head of MI6 and discussed..."
Do you think they now have tranquilizer darts on standby?
