Letter: Outrage overblown over Mitt Romney's London Olympic comments

London Mayor Boris Johnson, center, poses for pictures with fans of Britain's team following a photo-op with London ambassadors, the volunteers working around the city to give tourists directions and information, in central London, Tuesday, July 31, 2012. Johnson was one of the many people lashed-back after Mitt Romney questioned London's preparedness for the games.

Only a Democrat waiting to pounce on every word or a British mayor/prime minister still upset over Concord and Lexington, wound tight over issues that scare him to death, could have been offended by what Mitt Romney said about the Olympics. Relax, guys.

Romney said there will be some unforeseeable details that will be dealt with. Is there any way that is not true?

And I'm getting fed up with the way our news people, even here in Utah, respond to everything as if it were earth shattering. KSL's prime time team made it an issue by reporting it that way. I can only assume the other Utah affiliates did the same.
