PHOTO: Romneys at London Olympic Opening Ceremony

(CNN) - Mitt Romney and his wife Ann spent their final night in London watching Friday's Opening Ceremony for the 2012 Olympic Games.

The presumptive GOP nominee has been in Great Britain since Wednesday as a part of a three country foreign tour that also includes Israel and Poland. He will travel to Tel Aviv Saturday to meet with Israeli leaders, then to Poland on Monday.

    Oh please. Don't act like you are the president already. Quit waving, the damage is done by you yesterday, you can't undo it. You were blasted by mayor of London in front of 60000 people. Go away. You are a hack.

    Hopefully the selfish bishop and wife saw how the Brits are proud of their universal health care which caters well for all the people not the privilege few here in America. We are still waiting for your tax returns Mr.Evader Robmey.

    Romney can have Poland but Isreal ? If the People in Isreal have been watching him for the last 6 months and listening to him ? Thats a loser right there ! he'll never get them period. Isreal needs stability and a future Not someone who can't give a straight answer or flip-flops period ! Good-Luck with that.

    Romney now claims he “Saved The Olympics” but what he really did was
    ask for a federal “bailout from George Bush”. Bush then gave the
    Olympics 600 million dollars to get their act together and in the final
    count, Romney spent 1.2 billion and was way over budget even after a

    The Olympics managed by Mitt Romney, was the most expensive in
    history, and John McCain once again called it “the worst example of Pork
    Barrel Spending” he’d every witnessed. Romney thinks his record
    “bailout” his record in earmarks, and his record spending at the
    Olympics, is part of his “business experience” that makes him a viable
    candidate for President. But no one is actually talking about that.

    Republicans should be so ashamed of themselves and what they've let their party become. Please have change of heart, call him home and break the news that you're going in a different direction. Mitt the Twit they're calling him in England, and it took him 5 minutes to earn the name and 5 more to flip his position. Shame!

    I felt really bad for Ann Romney when Mitt said that he had no interest in watching her horse's performance with her. He said that's her "thing," not his, so he had no plans to be there with her. Honestly, how often does anyone make it to the Olympics, especially in dressage? If my horse made it to the Olympics, I would be crushed if my husband didn't want to share that special moment with me. I'll bet Ann was there for every special event for her husband's business. It just seems thoughtless, clueless.

    The article said that the Romneys are going to Tel Aviv to meet with Israeli leaders. However, the capital of Israel and all the Israeli leaders are located in Jerusalem. Wouldn't the Romneys be traveling to Jerusalem? Isn't CNN aware of this? Very strange.

    Can you tell us what kind of toilet paper they used too? I am really tired of every political headline on CNN being something about Romney, where he's going, who he's insulting, how he's not going to recognize the middle class...
