“We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special.” — Romney campaign tells London's Telegraph newspaper
Barack Obama is not considered a 'white man'. The Republicans are always hinting at this, without using those words. They openly say he is 'un-American'. Now, the statement is that he does not share our shared 'Anglo-Saxon heritage' and culture. Romney's campaign pumped this out as their man is in London for the Olympics. Perhaps, Romney is more Anglo-Saxon than Obama is; but Obama is far more Anglo-Saxon than i am, and many other Americans, and Britishers.
Romney was running for President when he was in charge of the Salt Lake Olympics 2002. He received great free press propaganda. I knew then he wanted the presidency. Well, Mittens shows up for the London games, and says one stupid thing after another; some irritatingly insulting to the country he is visiting. Willard is just another ugly American tourist.
“England is just a small island. Its roads and houses are small. With few exceptions, it doesn't make things that people in the rest of the world want to buy. And if it hadn't been separated from the continent by water, it almost certainly would have been lost to Hitler's ambitions.”— Romney, book, No Apology.Romney went abroad to show his foreign policy gravitas. The English papers are comparing him negatively to Sarah Palin, and gwbjr. Perhaps, it would have been better if he just visited his wife's dancing horse. The horse is an Olympian. Well, let us see how many Polish jokes he will tell as his grand tour continues.
“It's hard to know just how well [the 2012 London Olympics] will turn out. 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.”— Willard Romney, wannabe President
“We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course it's easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.”— David Cameron, Prime Minister of Great Britain
