Romney trip begins in shambles

LONDON (CNN) - If only Mitt Romney could turn the Olympic torch on the newspaper headlines in London.

He's the "Party Pooper" in the Daily Mail, "Nowhere Man" in the Times of London and "Mitt the Twit" in The Sun.

    Well, so much for Mr. Romney establishing his foreign affairs credentials. So far he has shown himself to be as inept as Mr. G.W. Bush from a diplomatic standpoint if not an outright embarrassment.

    Meanwhile, the GOP here at home sits on its hands continuing with the old delay, linger and wait approach to disrespecting the American population.

    What a bunch of losers!

    Whenever anyone mentions The President’s middle name, “Hussein” in a derogatory manner I get scared. And my chow gets scared and starts to howl. And then the tulips in my garden start to wilt. And then I feel the sudden urge to run to Walmart to stock up on milk and toilet paper.

    So to those who keep mentioning The President’s middle name, "Hussein" in a derogatory manner: for everyone’s sake, for our pets and our flowers…For the love of a White American Christian God, please stop scaring people!

    The Brits are fighting and dying along side our military and Romney insults them, they have a right to be angry and they have a right to expect an apology from Romney or is he waiting for President Obama and the American people to do it for him.

    P.S. As the saying goes, I think Romney has worn out his welcome.

    It was a slow News Day. Talk about maknig a Mountain out of a Mohill. BUT we know the Private Sector is doing fine, Except, they didn't build that Business, somebody else did it. Are we all clear now?
    Blame the Brits, especially the London papers, conservative and liberal alike. They're the ones who Romney offended and made a mountain out of mole hill. I would love to tell you that American liberals are merely watching, but they're not. They are ROTFLTAO. They thought the clown show was over, and the second act is only just beginning.

    Does anyone believe that a man who says and does things like Mitt Romney does built a financial empire all by himself?

    There you go again, Rudy, trying to bring common sense into the conversation!

    Short answer? No.

    (Then again, the man doesn't have a moral fiber to hang his hat on ............... )
