    Romney Insults English on Olympics

    LONDON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney caused a stir in Britain on Thursday by questioning whether the country is prepared to host the Olympic Games without a hitch and scheduling a fundraiser with the former head of a troubled bank.

    Immigration (union) workers threatening a strike to prevent people from getting to The Olympics.

    Many businesses closed because employees are all taking vacation to avoid the obnoxious Olympics tourists.

    Taxi drivers going on strike in protest of not being allowed to use "Zil" (Google that one) lanes.

    Tube (subway unionists) workers scheduling "industrial action" to bring London to a crawl?

    Security situation in chaos.

    I'd say Rommey has just called a spade a spade. No less; no more.

    The Wingnuts really think this guy can get to November without saying something really, really stupid.

    Yeah the Romney comment I have to admit it's right up there with giving the Queen a I-Pod for a gift.

    As we can see Romney's mouth does not have a censor. And this is with an ally. I wonder how quickly Romney could get us into an armed conflict with a middle east visit? People complain about obama who does very well without a teleprompter when visiting foreign countries, yet it would seem Romney needs a pre-written script because every time he tries to go and speak on his own he is insulting foreign people, insulting local people, and showing he pretty much has no class or idea of polite manners. I could expect this from a fox news entertainer, but from the president of the US this is abysmal.

    Another manufactured faux controversy. Such lameness. And fuck the Brits anyway. Whoever they're backing for President of the U.S., make sure you go the opposite way. It's really fun pissing whiny Brits off. They're always meddling in other nations' affairs. And unfortunately, we're second to them in that regard. I definitely don't have any love for Great Britain. Their constant meddling causes most of the problems in this World. And it's been very depressing watching my Country following their lead on that. So to Hell with them and their faux outrage. And WTG Romney!! :)

    That's an insult?

    So you would agree Barack Obama has insulted Great Britian much more?

    Not nearly as stupid as saying our most important ally can't run an Olympics.

    Not this again ?

    By the way, the REAL insult came from the British PM, when he refered to Salt Lake City, as the "middle of nowhere".
    But of course the good lib that you are that is fine and dandy.
