How’s that Whole “Anglo-Saxon” Thang Going? Willard Has Now Pissed Off Australia, UK


So, Willard’s supposed to be the one who understands “Anglo-Saxon” countries, apparently because he’s…well, white. The problem is, so far the evidence is exactly the opposite. The question at this point is more whether there any other “Anglo-Saxon” countries (whatever that means, exactly) Romney can piss off. He’s certainly well on his way, having now angered Australia and the UK over just the past few days. Heckuva job, Willard!

P.S. I can’t wait to hear what Romney has to say on the rest of his foreign policy tour. Deep thoughts about the “Soviet Union,” perhaps, or how Russia’s our #1 geopolitical adversary these days, or how he’ll bomb first, ask questions later? What a nightmare; unless, that is, you liked George W. Bush’s foreign policy! Yeah right!

    Mr Romney Goes to London: barely having exited the threshold of the prime minister’s residence, the American candidate blurts that he is now in the club with British intelligence.

    And another Mitt Romney blunder: confirmed outside No 10 he met head of MI6. Aspiring US presidents not meant to say that

    For our American readership, this isn’t like bragging you just met David Petraeus. The British take on the national secret intelligence service comes with an extra-heavy dollop of the whole secret thing. The very existence of the MI6 was not officially acknowledged until 1994.

    Good luck, Romney handlers: this is only stop No. 1 on a three-stop international tour. What will he say in Jerusalem? That when you really look at it there are some pretty daunting barriers to the peace process, like take all those Arab Israelis, how’s that going to work out for a Jewish state?

    What an incompetent buffoon.

  • Romney continues to alienate, offend, and otherwise piss off everyone who comes in contact with him. Exactly what we want in a president, huh? My god, how is this clown not 20 points down to President Obama?

    Gee, first one of his underlings insults every American who is not of Germanic/British extraction. He lies about being buddy-buddy with Netanyahu. He lies about what the Australian prime minister said to him. Then, he proceeds to piss off his London hosts by belittling their preparedness to hold the Olympics. Wonder if he’ll make a few Polish jokes when he lands in that country?

    Do we have a very. very rich George W. Bush clone here? I’ve been collecting some of his “Romneyisms,” so I guess the time has come to share them. (Remember “Bushisms”?)

    I wrote on another blog the other day I thought old Mitt was dumber than W, but can’t under stand how he got so many bucks. We know W got rich drilling dry oil well holes, but Mitt?

    Tweets from the UK say Bush had better diplomatic skills. That’s really something.
