With all that rampant liberal voting fraud, you know their votes will be counted. Twice.

Well, the Romney campaign was the one accusing Obama of "not understanding Anglo-Saxon culture."

What's worse? Giving the Queen an iPod or insulting London and saying they're not ready to host the Olympics?

Really it's funny because this should have been a softball trip to pretend that he had some sort of foreign policy chops. Instead he's managed to pile on gaffe after gaffe.

Well at least we can hope he doesn't bow three degrees too deeply in Japan.

Hey, he can't bow at all in Japan, if we take the opinion of certain message board posters into account.

When people still don't really care, yet more liberal media types find new and interesting ways to report on the reports on the supposed disaster of Romney's trip. Meanwhile? No one else cares.

If by politely ignored, you mean publicly chided by prominent British politicians and organizers of the games, sure. Admittedly, this is no more or less insignificant than the whole Obama bowing thing, except that it doesn't present a very good window into the foreign policy experience of one who would like to call himself Mr. President.

As opposed to the demonstrably weak and ineffectual foreign policy experience of the man who currently does call himself Mr. President.

I'd worry more about defending the president's record if I wasn't too busy laughing at the idiot you guys are hoping to take the attention away from Smiley: laugh

Extra laughs at the "is London ready?" questions before the opening ceremonies.

If the only part of that speech which portrayed a collectivist ideology and downplayed (or even outright dismissed) the accomplishments and contributions of small business owners to their own success was that one sentence, you'd have a point and the whole thing could be dismissed (politely even!) as a minor gaffe. But the context of his speech shows otherwise. Unlike say the context of Romney's statements which are apparently being massively misrepresented in the liberal bubble. And frankly, amusingly so. Almost desperately so. It's like a group of people looking really really hard to find some reason to attack Romney (well, defend Obama really) that they'll pick up on the most minor thing and then attempt to turn it into a major thing.

They're trying way too hard. But I guess the London environment is the only one on his trip that's likely to be chock full of Left leaning media, so that's their best shot at doing this sort of attack. Not surprising really, but kinda embarrassing how obviously hard they're working at it.

They're really not even trying very hard, hence the reason even with all his Super PAC $ Romney's behind in all the polls besides rasmussen's.

If it makes you feel better, I doubt most Americans knew he was there either unless they heard about one of his missteps. Olympic season seems like a really dumb time to have your little global tour unless route mainly hoping that no one follows it too closely and will give you credit for just showing up.

Considering we're arguably you're biggest ally on the world stage, one would think Mr Romney would want to avoid ******* us off too much.

It's all rather irrelevant unless it costs him votes.

He's behind in the polls so he's doing this to GAIN him votes. Even if the sum total is a small negative or neutral, that was a waste of time and money he should have spent elsewhere. Did London cost him votes? Maybe, maybe not. I honestly doubt it gained him any votes.
