Mitt Romney: Destroyed by British Press Over London Olympic Diss

by at . Comments

Mitt Romney spent a few days this week in Great Britain... and let's just say he's fortunate no residents there can vote in the upcoming U.S election.

Having organized the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Romney was asked by NBC News about his thoughts on the lead-up to this year's Summer Games in London, to which he replied:

"There are a few things that were disconcerting. The stories about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials … that obviously is not something which is encouraging."

The response from British newspapers made Romney's reception by the NAACP appear warm.

The Sun labeled Romney as a "wannabe president" and "Mitt the Twitt."

The Daily Mail slammed him as devoid of charm, offensive and a wazzock."

A Sky News reporter asked: "Is this guy really prepared to be president?"

Romney has since tried to make up for his comments, telling the media yesterday that "you are going to see terrific games that will be long time in our memories." But it may be too little, way too late.

Perhaps Romney should distract folks from this negative press by releasing more tax returns.

Please remember people that the English were the ones that Americans wanted to get away from. Remember that the ideas and beliefs of our country are still the best in the world. Try to remember how our country was 'built'. Who has always bailed out Europe? Do you think the English could have handled the Nazis if the US didn't help? I could care less if they are upset are not about something as ridiculous as this. By the way, go USA!!!

Im not a republican voter, but I don't see anything wrong with being concerned with the lack of security. I made a comment myself after hearing they were a thousand guards short.

While he may have been able to word it a bit different, hes right! Whats wrong with being concerned that there is not enough security? They admitted they were short and had to bring in more. Some group of radical crazies could take advantage and kill a shit load of people! But im sure if Obama came out and said something it would be fine right? Seems the problem lies with the security people who lied and not Romneys opinion. They are just pissed for it being brought up because they look incompetant, which is true!
