Video: London mayor swipes at Romney at Olympics rally for criticizing UK’s preparation

posted at 5:21 pm on July 26, 2012 by Allahpundit

If you’d asked me last week how I saw Mitt’s big foreign policy trip playing out, having him name-checked as a naysaying stooge before a huge crowd at the start of the Olympics — by a Tory, no less — would not have popped to mind. It’s like a scene from a lost “Naked Gun” movie in which Frank Drebin runs for president.

Watch the quickie clip below from last night’s NBC interview to see what caused the kerfuffle. The word that got the British press hopping today is “disconcerting.” Said a pissy David Cameron about Romney’s Olympics stint at Salt Lake City, “It’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.” (Upon hearing that, SLC’s mayor offered to get Cameron a map.) The hard-left Guardian quotes one senior British source as saying, “What a total shocker. We are speechless.” The Telegraph’s beating him up too:

Mitt Romney is perhaps the only politician who could start a trip that was supposed to be a charm offensive by being utterly devoid of charm and mildly offensive…

Not once have I heard him [in his stump speech] praise Britain or extol the special relationship he now belatedly trumpets. He even reprised his dislike of the NHS shortly before leaving for these shores of benighted, yellow-toothed natives who spend half their lives waiting in hospital, having tried as governor of Massachusetts to ensure that everyone in his state, as in Britain, had access to health care.

His current pledge to “revive” ties between the US and Britain sounds suspiciously like a talking point drummed up in a policy meeting and designed to differentiate himself from President Barack Obama for domestic purposes.

Romney’s since walked back his comments but the wet cement of this narrative is already turning dry. You’ll see three reactions on the right to all of this, I suspect. One: Who cares? It won’t cost Romney a single vote. As lefty Nate Silver put it, “[Doubtful] that Romney will carry Hertfordshire after this Olympics gaffe.” Two: Romney was right. Watch his comments again. He’s clearly been paying attention to British preparations from the unique perspective of a guy who’s had to deal with all of it before. Even Piers Morgan felt obliged to concede his points on CNN this afternoon. Fleet Street’s shooting the messenger here. Three: Why, Mitt, why? The point of the trip is to draw a contrast with The One’s oafish insistence on insulting the British after he took office, from removing the bust of Churchill in the Oval Office to this immortal moment of narcissistic idiocy. Romney’s going to restore the “special relationship” and his first step in doing so is by gladhanding every Brit in sight. (He even mentioned the Churchill bust today.) It’s the easiest diplomatic task imaginable. And yet, somehow, when Brian Williams tossed him a softball about whether British preparations looked okay, the executive/consultant within couldn’t resist a few criticisms. Baffling. This week is nothing but a big photo op, yet somehow it already involves Boris Johnson sneering at “a guy called Mitt Romney” at an Olympics rally. Good lord.

This wasn’t his only gaffe today either, but thanks to Johnson, this is the one that’ll end up in rotation on CNN and MSNBC.

..bite me. You are just an unrelenting Dem shill. You basically thrive on any perceived faux paus by Romney. Perhaps if you were a little more grounded or thoughtful in your criticism folks would take you more seriously. But, like The Cabin Boy, Dr Rin Tin Tin, UpperYeastInfection, A.D.D.-renalin, and Phlegmatic you are just a joke and a negative crapsack hack.

Mitt could have handled the question differently, but no big deal. I do get some pleasure from Mitt ruffling feathers a little bit after all the butt-kissing bestowed on Barry from David Cameron and company.

You know, there is a chance that some Brits (the real ones, not the media/government types) will applaud Romney for his honesty. Many think this has poorly handled from day 1.

I don’t know that it will go that long…and it is just possible that once people hear what Romney said and then see the totally over the top reaction, they will actually feel like siding with the American. I honestly do not think that people who are worried about the economy and crime and high gas prices will give a damn about this.

You didn’t even remember Willard’s gaffe in the debate when he said “Betcha Ten Thousand Dollars”.

You can be excused for that though – since Willard gaffes as often as Plugs Biden does. Hard for tiny minds like yours to remember!

If Mitt Romney does not like us why should we care? Headlines like that are completely ridiculous when you actually hear what he said. So yeah.

At least he wasn’t bent over.

Chuck Schick on July 26, 2012 at 8:07 PM

He is now. :D

HondaV65 on July 26, 2012 at 8:08 PM

So far I think he has done a good job of clarifying.

Cindy Munford on July 26, 2012 at 8:09 PM

I have not heard Romney say a word about the press. BTW, you are a hypocrite.

Terrye on July 26, 2012 at 8:06 PM

I was talking about YOU ya nitwit. You are so flustered you can’t think straight!!

Have a beer … or something.

Or take a chick out in the back of a taxi.

Take several!

LMFAO!!

Dude, you should pace yourself until Axlerod brings the pizza. You’re gonna give yourself a heart-attack.

But seriously, weak trolling. It was better in 2008.

Well, he’s got a lot of experience in that department, Cindy.

HondaV65 on July 26, 2012 at 8:10 PM

So Romney is already apologizing for America overseas and he isn’t even president yet. Lol. What an idiot.

Uppereastside on July 26, 2012 at 8:06 PM

Does this mean you Mitty’s are going to support a full-out war against the UK?

What about that bust of Churchill – are you going to ask for it back so you can blow it up with an M-80?

LMFAO!!

“Mitt Romney will fix relations with our friends.”

“Oh FU** those BRITS!! Who needs ‘em!!”

If you want spend you time more wisely you should be registering dead voters or setting up one of those ACORN centers.

trolling like this is so 2008.

I’m glad to see you enjoying yourself but I think your glee is out of proportion with the incident.

100 more posts and I get a free pizza! Yay.

In 2008, you were still breastfeeding – and I was still stupid enough to vote for McRage.

So no – I wasn’t trolling the GOP candidate back then.

You fail!

Then again – all Mittbotts fail!

LMFAO!!

HondaV65 on July 26, 2012 at 8:12 PM

Cindy Munford on July 26, 2012 at 8:11 PM

The “glee” isn’t caused by the incident but the reaction of the Mitty’s to it.

Look back, Cindy – you’ll find that I stated several times this was simply a minor gaffe.

And the Mittwits should have said … “Yeah – that was a knuckleheaded thing to say! Damn!”

But instead – they’ve busted out the Dkos “rationalization handbook” to defend the comments as both WISE and ACCURATE!

THAT’S WHAT I FIND ABSOLUTELY GUT BUSTING HILARIOUS!!

HondaV65 on July 26, 2012 at 8:14 PM

Well I agree with you there, far to overwrought. He’ll be fine.

Indeed – I was – you probably didn’t notice because you’re still on the GOP plantation working for your establishment massahs!

Look out over the top of the cotton though – and you’ll see me way over here wearing a Panama Jack shirt, sipping a Mai Tai and wondering how much longer you’re gonna pick cotton for John Cornyn, Mitchy McConnell and Crybaby Johnnie Boehner!

LMFAO.

There’s no chains bro – just walk out of the fields here and grab a mai tai! LMFAO!!

HondaV65 on July 26, 2012 at 8:19 PM

Just to put this food fight back in perspective:

Obama Meets With His Cabinet For The First Time Since January
—JohnE.

This afternoon, for the first time since January 31 of this year, President Obama met with his Cabinet.

Today, President Obama convened a meeting of his Cabinet to discuss the ideas he laid out in the State of the Union. Joining the meeting was a new member of that Cabinet — Karen Mills, the head of the Small Business Administration.

Discussing the State of the Union? Now?

Link

A President not meeting with his cabinet in 6 months vs expressing skepticism about the Olympics. Which way should I vote!

Chuck Schick on July 26, 2012 at 8:20 PM

LOL….every screw up regarding the games in London in the next couple of weeks Romney will have been proven right….awesomeness!

Heh – says the guy who’s been voting for GOP “small government” candidates that never once brought him “small government”.

But that’s okay – keep voting for the same shills that lie to you and uhm …

Get back to work on that cotton boy! Your master, John Cornyn is watching and he’s gonna whup you!

Oh yeah…those Atlanta Olympics in ’96 were so brilliantly organised….

If International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Juan Antonio Samaranch’s address to the closing ceremonies of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games is remembered at all, it is for his unwillingness to bestow Atlanta’s Games with the honor of “the greatest in Olympic history” – that coveted rhetorical flourish lauding the host city’s organizing efforts. Unbridled commercialism, poor and unreliable public transportation, a deadly terrorist attack on Centennial Olympic Park: such significant failures shaped Samaranch’s verdict that these Olympic Games were “most exceptional,” but not “the greatest.”

Why not judge the London Olympics when they are over rather than before they have happened…..

You don’t use your brain – nor do you think long range.

It’s too bad the Willynits are reduced to praying to Jesus tonight for something really bad to happen in London so their boy can be vindicated.

Too bad – but kinda hilarious at the same time! LMFAO!!

That was barely English and quite creepy.

If you stand behind people who don’t even have the courage to run, you have no right to point fingers at anyone. No one’s louder than the proven loser.

Chuck Schick on July 26, 2012 at 8:29 PM

Great job Mitt! Two airballs in two days. I know in the US you can trashtalk Obama 24/7, but when you go overseas you have to show a minimum of social skills and diplomacy. Don’t insult the host country…you are a guest. Great job getting the British PM to insult your Olympics in the middle of nowhere. At least you learned a lesson on day one. Now go show everyone the type of sports real American men like to watch…horse ballet!

First of all …

I don’t stand behind Sarah Palin. I’m interested in Palin only as a spoiler – if she ran indie – she wouldn’t get my vote (that vote is going to Obama) – but she would get the votes of enough real conservatives to de-rail this embarrassing ayatollah the GOP has put forward as a nominee.

Second – I have a right to say or do whatever I want as long as it’s legal. Did I do something illegal?

No?

Oh well then – pardon me while ignore your frivolous demands!

LMFAO!!

HondaV65 on July 26, 2012 at 8:32 PM

If I were Mitt, I’d hold every US meeting of my Presidency with Cameron in SLC. And never say a word about it. Just greet him with a smile. But I’m a bastard like that.
