Romney in Shambles as Britain Proclaims Him Worse than Sarah Palin
Romney in Shambles as Britain Proclaims Him Worse than
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
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.
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
