Romney toured England, Israel and Poland where he met with political leaders, made public speeches and visited historic sites. Intended to shore up his foreign credentials, the overseas jaunt got off to a rocky start.
In London, Romney described some of the problems facing Olympic organizers at the start of the Summer Games as “disconcerting,” an unwelcome comment from a foreigner that unleashed a media firestorm in Britain.
Romney outraged Palestinian leaders when he suggested "culture makes all the difference" in the stark contrast in economic vitality between Israel and Palestine.
Romney visited Poland at the invitation of Lech Walesa, the Polish labor leader who co-founded the Solidarity movement and served as the country's president during the transition out of communism. But Solidarity characterized Romney as being hostile to unions and against labor rights.
