    Romney disavows adviser's 'Anglo-Saxon' remark

    Mitt Romney distanced himself today from an unnamed adviser's comments that President Obama doesn't appreciate "Anglo-Saxon heritage" and the "special relationship" between the United States and Great Britain.

    The quotes in the Daily Telegraph threatened to overshadow the likely GOP presidential nominee's arrival in London for meetings with British Prime Minister David Cameron tomorrow and the opening ceremonies of the Olympics on Friday.

    "I don't agree with whoever that adviser is," Romney said in an interview with NBC News that aired this evening. "But I can tell you that we have a very special relationship between the United States and Great Britain. ... I also believe the president understands that."

    It didn't take long to step in it on his overseas trip.

    The fact is he is right, I mean as gifts he gives people a couple of movies and his book, that's pathetic, and yes he see anglo-saxons as the evil of the world, and I all can say is fuck his commie ass.

    Not really.

    He's been going around calling Obama a "foreigner" and cuddling up with such luminaries as Trump.

    It was a natural progression. But somebody probably warned him about criticizing a sitting President overseas..so..it might have given him pause to think.

    In any case..he's making sure to cover his bases at home. Soon enough he'll be code talking and calling Obama <PUT YOUR FAVE WORD HERE FOR "THE BLACK GUY"> aka Socialist, Marxist, Foreign, Kenyan..and a million other cutesy titles.
