On Fox News Thursday, Charles Krauthammer criticized Mitt Romney
for his comments saying that all the problems facing the London
Olympics feel “disconcerting.” Romney made the comment in an interview
last night with Brian Williams.
Krauthammer said that all Romney has to do is say nothing and come out
of the trip looking better on U.S.-Britain relations than the president,
and he messed up on the first day.

Romney's comments caused a British backlash at the Olympics, bringing scathing comments from the Prime Minister and the Major of London.

“All Romney has to do, say nothing. It’s like a guy in the 100-meter
dash. All he has to do is to finish, he doesn’t have to win. And instead,
he tackles the guy in the lane next to him and ends up disqualified. I
don’t get it.”

I can hardly wait for the debates!!

    If it's wrong, Romney will say it. The only question left, is which of his countless personalities, he'll send.

    What he said is not wrong. Once again FOX has to lie. LWNJs just use Romneys comment to make him look bad but in the end the left wingers and liberals will just make themselves look like idiots.

    Romney should have kept his opinions to himself. You don't go into a host country and criticize them.

    Obviously Romney was wrong, because London was more than prepared. They are doing a fantastic job.

    London has planned the Olympics THREE times, Romney once.

    It is called freedom of speech. He though the security was bad so he pointed it out. Romney had every right to criticize especially since he though the players were at risk.

    Baloney, Romney was trying to bring attention to his experience in organizing the Salt Lake Olympics and look like some know-it-all big shot.

    It backfired in his face. Oh, and freedom of speech isn't guaranteed ON FOREIGN SOIL.

    Freedom of speech is guaranteed on foreign soil?

    You'd better let the rest of the world know!

    London has hosted the Olympics THREE times; Romney was involved in organizing the Olympics ONCE.

    London has had more experience with this than Romney, which is why Romney should have just kept his mouth shut.

    Pawlenty, Gingrich, Santorum and other republicans said it a long time ago: Romney is the wrong choice and now in his own words he is proving it. Vote Ron Paul. A vote for ROmney is a wasted vote.

    Wow! I have never in my life agreed with anything Krauthammer has suggested. We're on the same page here - Mittens is a sociopath and his ego is so incredibly large that he can't be polite or share the limelight.

    heaven forbid someone should - you know - feel BETTER as a result of taking marijuana - - unless of course said person is rich. THEN anything they want to do is just fine with Mitt.

    There's an ancient Chinese proverb that goes something like: "'Tis better to remain silent and judged a fool than to speak and remove all doubt." Fitting, I'd say.

    Mitten is just the best looking of all the airheads who competed for the nomination. No one ever claimed he was the smartest, most experienced in anything except Mormonism and selling jobs to China, or has any concept of the Federal government or international diplomacy. Only 100 more days to endure and then he can sign the movie contract.

    He was only showcasing his ample abilities as a statesman and representative of the U.S. It was an honest attempt. So he failed ...it happens.
