Mitt Romney does the impossible: Gets Brits to stop moaning and start cheering about Olympics

In little more than 24 hours in London, the U.S. presidential candidate has gotten Britons to stop complaining about bumper-to-bumper traffic, cringing about cost overruns and fretting about shoddy security - and instead start taking pride in their country's long-awaited day in the sun. Full Story

Mittens has managed to create a series of international incidents with his constant gaffing and goofing. Can he be withdrawn from overseas before he starts a war? LOL

Second thought, let him go....he's sinking his own campaign.

OUR ROMNEY DID NOTHING WRONG TO EXPRESS HIS CONCERNS ABOUT ALL THE OLYMPICS & HIS RIGHTS LIKE ANY OF US ABOUT THE RIGHT TO QUESTION SAFETY AT OLYMPICS. There is obviously too much "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS" being thrown in poor Romney's face about this common conern. Come on folk's we know this was a cheap shot and the Obama Campaign is 100% behind this getting everyone's nerves worked up over absolutely nothings. "It's time for some of us to "Grow up" and stop acting like Romney isn't acting on what most of us generally would be concerned about like this Olympic concern.

And this is by no means a "Flip-Flop" on Romney's part, but appears to be a "Flopped-Flipped" on the Obama's Camp part.

Excluding bad dental hygiene there are 2 things at which brits cannot be beaten - whining and racism.

Watching the Opening Ceremonies for the London Games, it dawned on me that the Brits have a truly integrated society. It's almost as if they somehow purged their nation of hyperconservative, dogma-spewing, hate-peddling, superstitious ideologues. I wonder where they all went...

Romney was right. Brits had to call in their military to save the games.

Like most Rightie morons, you confuse good manners with "political correctness." You don't go into someone else's country, a close ally, and smear their big national appearance on the world stage.

"Cheap shots" are largely the doing of the far Right, including doofuses like you.

Americans have always excelled them at racism, and we've probably passed them as whiners, too.

Put that in your pants and smoke it.:)
