Romney in Shambles as Britain Proclaims Him Worse than
Sarah Palin

By: Jason
EasleyJuly 26th, 2012



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.

    And we should care what an Opinion Piece writer in the Telegraph says why?

    Well then lets read on - TELEGRAPH: Barack Obama says government invented the internet and the American Dream is a fantasy http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/...

    EXCERPTS:The American Dream has been one of history’s most potent forces for change and improvement. It’s rooted in a myth that a man shapes his own destiny. In fact, that’s never truly been the case. From the tariff to the railroads, from the Food and Drugs Act to the Pell Grant, the US government has intervened to shape the market and help people fulfill their ambitions. But would they have remained so ambitious if they thought that it was collective rather than individual action that was ultimately responsible for their success? Maybe not. Of course, capitalism is a team sport. But the idea that an individual’s merit is the product or property of the community is the antithesis of the pioneer spirit.

    On Sunday, President Obama gave us a fascinating insight into his alternative philosophy. In a speech to supporters, he said that business leaders owed the government more money in taxes because it was the state that made their success possible.

    AND Telegraph says Obama desperate and calls his donate rather than give a wedding gift plan a SCHEME

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/ne...

    Excerpts: Telegraphs says Obama desperate Barack Obama's is raffling off a seat at his own 51st birthday party at home in Chicago in a sign of growing desperation to raise funds ahead of November's general election.

    But another Obama scheme where soon-to-be-married supporters were told to tell their friends to give donations to the Obama campaign instead of wedding presents to the happy couple, was met with rather less enthusiasm.

    AND Telegraph says - Obama and Will Hutton live in a world outside of economics. Successful people don't owe the state http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/...

    Excerpts:: Will Hutton decides that President Obama is right about something: thereby proving that he must be wrong. It's one of those basic points about life: if Mr Hutton applauds you then you must be making a mistake. As I've said before, there's going to be an error in any position taken he takes, the excitement is only in working out precisely how and where.

    This time it's over Mr Obama's insistence that the state enables all business success and therefore everyone who is successful owes everything to the state.

    The fallacy here is simple: if the state is responsible for your success, then you must shut up and pay for every duck house and diversity adviser the government wants (even if they do not advance anyone's business success at all). For it's not really your money anyway. It is as if accepting the roads the Romans gave us, justifies all that Caesar did.

    The idea also fails to understand the arguments for letting the successful keep the fruits of their labour. It's nothing to do with them deserving it. Nowt to do with natural rights or private property either. Not even moral rights: for economics does not do morality or justice. It's about encouraging the others.

    AND The American Dream has been one of history’s most potent forces for change and improvement. It’s rooted in a myth that a man shapes his own destiny. In fact, that’s never truly been the case.

    So Romney voiced what the rest of us thought. Britain themselves put out the news that they were having problems. It was all over our news, and theirs.
    So lets condemn Romney for stating the truth which is a foreign concept for most politicians.

    But that's the point. What does he gain by reiterating something the Brits themselves honestly said they had work to do on? Romney's olympics was only the winter olympics and as it was said "in the middle of nowhere" in a city of less than 200,000 people. London has around 9 milion people and isn't built on a wide, open grid: it's evolved over a thousand years. Romney had an injection of $1.3 taxpayer money to make his piddly games work.

    It' just bad form to go to a country and criticize it. And then to renew Britain's long-held feelings about the US being unable to "keep it's mouth shut" by boasting he'd had meetings with MI6. Romney is a "wannabe". He just wanna be loved (cos historically his own party doesn't like him and never has)

    Romney isn't the first person to make a so called gaffe in a foreign country. It's been done from the beginning of time by every President. Being horrified by his comment like it was the first time anyone has ever stepped in it is being either naive or playing politics.
    We have a gaffe machine in the White House right now who has stepped in it more then once. everyone overlook his, and the vice-Presidents constant gaffe's, and Apology tours across Europe.

    Sometimes one should keep one's thoughts to one's self instead of voicing them. If he is to become POTUS (which I seriously doubt), he should know when it is best to voice his and the rest of his groupies thoughts aloud and when it is best to just STFU. So let's condemn Romney for opening his big mouth and putting his big foot in it when he should have just STFU. Apparently, diplomacy is not his forte. :-)

    BTW Romney would not be able to state the truth even if he was given a truth serum. LMAO :-)

    Hey diplomacy isn't Obama's forte either since he has told every country we know that they "punch above the waist" which works fine if you're a boxer. Or Biden's who has foot to mouth disease. While your laughing away about Romney not being able to tell the truth he will be more truthful then the liar we have in office now. who can't tell the truth if it bit him on the ass.

    Willard is a walking, talking disaster. Off he goes to Europe to look like a statesman. All Mitt had to do was just make some small talk about " the terrific events" and then DROP IT.

    No, the moron decided to lapse into small demeaning , authoritative babble. He is very much like Palin in that he says whatever pops into his head, and when he sinks deeper in his own sheet, he just keeps babbling more.... making the situation even worse.

    How many shots do you think Boehner threw down while he watched Mitt and the pissed off Brits?
