  • This overseas tour (UK, Poland and Israel) is supposed to highlight Romney's foreign diplomacy's capability.
    The first thing he does before even getting on the plane? He insults his host. LOL

      Americans only heard about Keynesian economics in the last two years, or so. Hence kenya.....

      I honestly wish I was kidding about that one.

  • David Cameron is a conservative - not a liberal - so Mitt was insulting his British counterpart. Doubly dumb.

    Oh, but of course, he quickly flipped and flopped like a landed trout! A man without principle.

      So true. Canada's Conservative Party is well left of Obama.

      Even our most hard-line right-wingers take socialized medicine as a given.

    • @thinkslaughter

      The way the USA measures left or right boggles my mind.

      Selling Obamacare as "social medicine" for example. That makes Canadians shake our heads in confusion. I still haven't wrapped my head around how mandating private insurance is social medicine.

      US politics are weird.

  • Can any person out there explain why the Republicans chose Romney and not Ron Paul? The thing is that Republicans always seem to pick candidates who are considered an absolute joke outside America (Romney,Bush,Palin etc.),why can't you guys just pick someone normal for a change?

  • Now this is really funny. All the right-wing fundies in America look to this paper (*cough*Mail*cough*) to post drivel about the UK (yes you thinkslaughter, vikingCOCKsquad and USA1), but in terms of "golden panties" Romney, they're all describing him as a jerk and one even goes so far as to call him a "wazzock"; fuckin' brilliant!

  • They invented the language so they can define words any way they want. So, henceforth, stating the truth will now be known as 'committing a gaffe'.

    Everybody got that? Webster? Dictionary.com?

    • @Ally_Gator He is a politician ! I dunno if you know what that job entails but it certainly has nothing to do with telling the truth and everything to do with promoting your country's interests ,hence not a good idea to tell your major AllieS that there fucking up a huge event right before its about to occur .a small thing called tact

      He only pointed out a couple of items that would have concerned him if he was in charge of the Olympics - and OH - he HAD been!!!

      But offer a European any advice and it gets thrown back in your face - until they need help, of course...

  • I think this is what he said,

    "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."

      It's like when you get invited to somebody's house for a party you don't start telling them about their leaking tap and noisy children.

      It's not cricket is it?

      You are right, but I've never been to a party where they asked me to comment about what I saw and how I felt about it, and then have my words relayed all over the world.

      I am not endorsing Romney in any way, just saying.

      It is still not polite nor diplomatic to criticize your host before you even arrive.

      If I invite you to a BBQ and then find out that you're telling people that my backyard is a mess (even if it's true), I would politely ask you not to attend ;-)

      No it's not polite. He's running for president and also organized the Olympics in Salt Lake City, so he's acting like he would have done a better job.

      It's not a jab against the brits, it's just him posturing.
