Romney in Shambles as Britain Proclaims Him Worse than Sarah Palin
The British reaction to Mitt Romney has gone from openness, to skepticism, to mocking, to concluding that Mitt Romney is worse than Sarah Palin.

Daily Mail Political Editor James Chapman has been providing the world a play by play of Romney’s British implosion via his Twitter account. Romney started things off by criticizing London’s preparedness for the Olympics. He then forgot the name of British Labour Leader Ed Miliband, and then he admitted that he had been given a secret briefing by MI6. This led the British to ask aloud if they have another George W. Bush on their hands, “Romney blunders again by revealing he’s had (supposedly) top secret briefing by John Sawers, MI6 boss. Do we have a new Dubya on our hands?”

After his visit to Whitehall, Chapman offered two of the kinder reviews of Mitt Romney, “Serious dismay in Whitehall at Romney debut. ‘Worse than Sarah Palin.’ ‘Total car crash’. Two of the kinder verdicts.” Chapman also reported another verdict from British meet and greet with Mitt, “Another verdict from one Romney meeting: ‘Apparently devoid of charm, warmth, humour or sincerity’”

Getting compared to Sarah Palin is one thing, but being called worse than Palin is an indication of the epic display of fail that Romney is putting on in London.

If you thought things couldn’t possibly get worse for Mitt Romney, you were wrong. How does one top being unfavorably compared to Sarah Palin? If you’re Mitt Romney, you get mocked in front of 60,000 people.

The Telegraph
is reporting that London Mayor Boris Johnson mocked Romney’s readiness comment, “Quite a moment from the Mayor of London Boris Johnson. Shortly after Rix had lit the flame he really went for it in Hyde Park. He referenced Mitt Romney’s ‘London isn’t ready’ quip and shot back in style. “Are we ready?” he called and the crowd went wild. There may even have been a hint of the Obama-friendly “Yes we can!” in there – he may have jumped into a winning scenario but I’ve not heard a politician get that reaction before.”

For their part, the White House rubbed salt in Romney’s wounds by pointing out that President Obama has full confidence in Britain’s ability to provide a secure Olympics. White House Spokesman Jay Carney said, “In keeping with our special relationship, the president also made it clear that he has the utmost confidence in our close friend and ally, the United Kingdom, as they finalize preparations to host the London Olympics.”

That special relationship is being put in jeopardy by a Republican nominee who can’t stop insulting the British people while making an ass out of himself. Instead of proving that he is Commander in Chief material, Romney is justifying John McCain’s 2008 selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate. To think, that the Romney campaign actually agreed to foreign policy being the the topic of the third presidential debate.

The British opinion of Romney has gone from he might be another Bush to oh my God, he makes Sarah Palin seem prepared.

Not since World War II has London seen a bombing as thorough as Mitt Romney’s

    Obama was campaigning to the point of exhaustion. I remember he was giving a speech in Florida and he forgot what state he was in, the audience had to remind him he was in Florida. The "57 states" remark was a result of barnstorming across the country visiting 6 or more states a day, speaking in every major city of each state.

    It's called lack of sleep, not that he doesn't know how many states there are.

    There are 57 ISLAMIC states, he is very confused alright, trying to decide if he is MUSLIM or Christian. It would be good if he would just make up his mind. http://www.snopes.com/politic...

    Obama is to be sure.

    I realize that he is direct, he said the news papers had cited security problems - they did and their are - and commented that it was concerning. That damned honesty, bastard.

    As to the rest, Labor leader (the liberals ) complimented him both in public and private. - The rest is drivel - hype to pump up the Brits and the idiots in US

    The problem is Jackie, if Mitt can't handle the little stuff without insulting a good friend, how can he be trusted to handle the big? This tour was his and his campaign's idea to show case his vast foreign affairs "knowledge". No one made him go and obviously he wasn't ready.

    Woman....GET REAL, Romney is the United States version of Mr. Bean. The man is a complete moron. If you don't know that you do not go to someone else's country and "be honest" and spout off what you really think you're as much of a moron as he is.
    The faster Mr.(Bean) Romney comes home, the less embarrassed America will be.

    He had a secret meeting with MI6, and made it public! What if he was the President before they raided Bin Ladins compound? He would call a press conference the day before and it would surely slip out for the rest of the world to know what he was doing!..The man is a flippin MORON.
    People like you who defend IDIOTS like Palin and Romney and Bush are the reason why the rest of the world laugh at Americans and give the rest of us a bad name. You're a very stupid person indeed.

    Romney was a better Governor. He jumpstarted the ACA with Romneycare and actually carried out his full term as Governor of MA.

    Palin quit & became a media whore.

    Neither one of them should be anywhere near the White House.

    Its just too bad for Romney that he has boxed himself into such a corner while grovelling to the Right, that the one true thing he could have boasted about, that 98% of Mass residents and 99% of their children now have healthcare, that now he runs away from it.

    President Obama doesn't think or believe that.

    It was campaign fatigue. He meant to say "47 states".

    Of course, you already knew this.

    In thinking about it though unclepat. Palin was plucked out of obscurity and never allowed herself the chance to look beyond her own little world of Alaska. Willard has been running for this office for TEN YEARS and he can't be more ignorant of facts than he is.

    The Brits don't like him either, they can spot a fake A-hole a mile away. They respect that Obama worked his way from nothing to become what he is, and they know Mitt is just a spoiled wanker.
