As from being in England (yes London is part of it) - What Mr Romney has said
may be correct but - for ALL of these carbuncles ie the Olympics - it is tons of
money that is needed for so much other things. I don't think any country is
totally ready - there are always things that need finishing and doing. As for
close ties don't make me laugh it is what one can get out of the other.
From what I have seen on the news here though he has retraced his words - hm
what does that make me think!!
What happened? I thought he shared a strong Anglo-Saxon connection with the UK.
Having lived abroad, I've seen my share of "Ugly Americans" who
display boorish behavior to their hosts. Its embarrassing. I was hoping for
better than this from the man who would be President.
That would have been a great time for Romney to be more optimistic than
honest--even if he is expressing the very same concerns London expressed just a
week ago about being unprepared for the Olympics.At least he
didn't apologize to England for the way we've treated them for the
past 40 years.
Romney spoke the truth from experience. Spinners with an agenda will always see
otherwise. The ones who keep on putting their foot in their mouth are those
that take offense where none was intended. If I could have an hour with Romney
who has been a very successful man, husband, parent, grandparent, community
leader, businessman, and volunteer, I would try to learn what makes him tick,
and then do my best to apply whatever he shared with me. The London Olympics
would do well to follow suit, listen and learn and apply.
Appears this is a recurring problem. Open mouth, insert foot behavior continues.
Romney is unable to help himself, apparently. It has happened way too
many times now to be an innocent mistake on his part.Even the hierarchy of
the Republican party is freaking out.Can't wait to see what he says
through the remainder of his "diplomatic" (ha, ha) trip. Whispers
about now concerning the Republican Convention...Anyone else wanna be run on the
Republican ticket for President of the United States?
1st contact with London. Insult them. Great leadership.
Romney knows as well as anyone that hosting the Olympics is a large and complex
operation. The Salt Lake Olympics were successful but there were hitches and
glitches along the way. Unless a miracle happens, London will also have some
problems with the Olympics. That's not a criticism of England or London,
it's just a statement of the way things are. People who want to turn
Romney's words into an "international stir" reveal just how devious
some politicians can be. This is why I think that Romney shouldn't release
additional tax returns. Unscrupulous politicians (redundant) will take anything
they can find in his taxes to create an issue and misinform the public.
Wow mom, wow!What is next Willard?
Pathetic. Can't wait to hear what he has to say to the leaders of Israel.
