Last week, Mitt Romney created a stir by stating that there were “disconcerting” signs that the British were not fully prepared for the London Olympics. His comments led one British publication to call him “Mitt the Twit.” In addition, a German publication labeled Romney The American Borat, and wondered what Romney would do for an encore during the remainder of his trip to Israel and Poland.
Prime Minister David Cameron responded to the comments stating, Its more difficult to organize the Olympics in one of the busiest, most active cities in the world than if you held the Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.
This, of course, was an obvious slam at Romneys crowning achievement of rescuing the Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City.
Good thing Mitt is visiting some of our staunchest allies rather than nations where diplomacy and sensitivity are truly needed.
