Well, speaking as a Brit, I think he came over as a complete tool yesterday.
As someone has already pointed out, the BBC news- the most watched news channel in the UK- is biased to the right, and the fact that it was a
repeatedly reported headline on the day where they were trying to focus on whipping up support for the Olympics, shows how angry they were about
Even Boris Johnson- another upper class oaf (and somehow, mayor of London!) looked polished and professional compared to Romney at an Olympic ceremony
where he said to the crowd "a certain American claims we are not ready for these games. London, are we ready?" and managed to get thousands of
people to shout "yes!".
I really hope Romneys aides realise what an arse he made of himself with this- these were exactly the sort of foreigners he should have been getting
on with- Conservatives white English speakers. Cant imagine how he would fair with the French, Germans, Italians never mind Asian or African
Still, Foreign policy was never a strong suit of 'W' Bush, and he managed two terms (shudders).
