    This Euro tour should have been a piece of cake since all three countries on the itinerary were run by conservative governments, but instead, Mitt forgot his manners, and instead of doing no harm, he criticized the Brits readiness for the Olympics. Just as Romney criticized the cookies in Pennsylvania, he was incapable of biting his tongue. It makes you wonder what kind of guest Mitt is at a neighbor's dinner party.

    It's interesting how the "Mitt haters" will jump on any excuse to criticize him. If any of these criticizers had watched the actual interview that precipitated this apparent controversy, they would've (or should've) noticed that he gave a rather simple assessment about the complexity of running the Olympics and how it is nearly impossible to pull off without a hitch. Because of the UK's well publicized problems with the security staffing, Mitt said he hoped the UK would be able to handle things. And as reporters are often prone to do, one of them took things completely out of context and reported that Romney was questioning the UK's ability to put on the Olympics. Others jumped on the bandwagon and a few UK politicians saw it as an opportunity to garner their own publicity from it. A little bit of honest investigating shows that this has turned into much ado about something hardly worth mentioning. Unfortunately, that's the dirty part of politics.
    The fact that socialist Europe seems to love their kindred Obama while questioning Romney is enough to make any true freedom lovers flock to Mitt Romney. To you others... read and learn!

    His flip-flopping is in high gear. When are his apologists going to concede that Mitt is not fit for the office of the POTUS?
