I think David Cameron would be confused about what this "left-wing coolness towards London" is.

This entire trip stinks of desperation. The Republicans have an absolutely abhorrent candidate.

Wow, that's revolting.

Now Mitt questions London's readiness for Olympics just as he gets there. Freaking clueless.

Of course he invented the Olympics.

Yeah, because hosting the Winter Olympics in SLC is totally the same as the Summer Games in freaking LONDON.

Lucky for him there aren't many US voters over there.

Or, as British PM Cameron put it: ""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.""

“I don’t happen to believe that America needs new gun laws,” Romney said in an interview with NBC News, which was filmed in London on the first day of the candidate’s weeklong trip to Europe and Israel.
Of course you don't, Romney .

Quote:
“And I happen to think that with regards to the Aurora, Colo. disaster,” Romney continued, “we’re wise to continue the time of memorial and think of comforting the people affected, and the political implications, legal implications, are something which will be sorted out down the road.”
Yeah. We'll deal with it later. Someday. We'll pencil a date in to talk about it and stuff. We'll just hope no other mass shootings will happen in that wait period.

Um...what?

Here's a hint, pal: Next time, try and think about how what you say will sound BEFORE you say it.

Favorite tweet on Romney's trip so far:

"Romney retroactively cancels visit to London."

Romney's trip kind of reminds me of the stereotypical American in Europe. You know, the whole "we're the superpowers", "we're the best country in the world", and "we saved your ass in WWII" attitude that turns off some Europeans. Especially with that London Olympics comment.

of course you don't, romney. it's because you're making this shit up as you go along and changing your position from one day to the next to best suit your needs. today you're for something, the next you're against it.

Many people in rural Ohio are probably impressed with that attitude. If the election is going to be as close as some claim, that could win it for Romney. Europe doesn't get to vote on November 6.

Yes, but Americans have a reputation abroad as being rude and arrogant, and not giving a damn what the rest of the world thinks about us because we're the superpower. In addition, too many Americans are oblivious to the rest of the world, and that isn't a good thing. We should drop our haughtiness and realize other countries have plenty to be proud of,too. Besides, we're not really a superpower anymore and its slipping fast.

This trip is supposed to showcase Romney the statesman - a man who takes relations with our allies more seriously than our current president and a man who would be better fit to negotiate these relationships. By all accounts his performance has been absolutely dismal so far. If anything it's helped reinforce the counter-arguments that Romney's rhetoric is just that - rhetoric, without meaningful substance to back it up.

Yes. I'm sure that was the first thought of most people there too.

I started watching his interview with Piers Morgan last night and I just had to change the channel. That smirk he puts on all the time-well he kept it on during all the questions and talk about the theater shooting. And it just creeped me out. Even holding hands the entire time with Ann-he just seemed so uncomfortable and robotic.

Romney is not an ideal candidate - who is? No-one gets their ideal dream candidate, that's not how it works. But, as far as I can tell, he is a moderate conservative with business success behind him and an understanding of the private sector and he stands a fighting chance of getting this economy back on its feet again. What concerns me is every single minor misstep he makes is analysed and dissected to death whereas gaffes that Obama makes disappear off the front pages remarkably quickly.

Romney wants to cut taxes and increase military spending.

Explain how that will help give the economy a "fighting chance."

It doesn't matter what he "wants" to do if I don't believe one word that comes out of his mouth.

Mitt has no backbone. He changes stances multiple times per term, and he'll say what he's told to say. In a time of vitriol between the parties, he's the last person to make a stand, which makes him a disastrous candidate. Apparently he blows at international diplomacy too.
