Mitt Romney Now Losing Friends And Alienating People In Olde Anglo-Saxon-Lande Too

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Well done, fellow!Oh Mitt Romney, please stop making us feel sorry for you. You go to Yurp so you can be a Celebrity Rock Star like Obama was in 2008, and “project leadership,” and everywhere you go, you make people hate you. What jerk thing came out of your mouth this time? Oh, just that London was probably going to do a crap job with its Olympics, is all.

“Do they come together and celebrate the Olympic moment? That’s something which we only find out once the Games actually begin,” [Romney] said.

“It’s hard to know just how well it will turn out. There are a few things that were disconcerting.

“The stories about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and Customs officials – that obviously is not something which is encouraging.”

The remarks were greeted with anger, with many British supporters of the Games taking to Twitter to accuse Mr Romney of being graceless and rude.

This is how you win hearts and minds, people. Like that of some nobody, David Cameron:

Now Tory Prime Minister David Cameron has swiped back. Said Cameron: “We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.”

Meow, David Cameron, you catty bitch! But don’t listen to David Cameron, as he is totally gay for Obama.

Instead let’s reflect on Mitt Romney’s totally great resume as being the savior of the Salt Lake City Olympic games — the games John McCain called a national disgrace:

We can’t wait to see what happens when Romney gets to Israel! And Poland. Don’t forget Poland!

The sun never sets on Romney's stupidity.

deanbooth July 26, 2012 at 3:38 pm

That gets to the heart of the matter. It's one thing to be an arrogant asshole, but you have to be exceptionally stupid to continually express your assholishness.

Barb_ July 26, 2012 at 1:20 pm

" But don’t listen to David Cameron, as he is totally gay for Obama."
How gay? Would he like to lose a toe ring in him in something like that?

BarackMyWorld July 26, 2012 at 1:21 pm

"I'm really surprised Mitt Romney was a dick to somebody," said no one, anywhere.

Jus_Wonderin July 26, 2012 at 1:21 pm

I love how he is distancing himself from his wife's horse competing in the Olympics. Saying something to the effect of "That is Ann's horse. I won't be watching the event."

Okay, so Mitt Romney doesn't support the endeavors of his loving wife??????

GeorgiaBurning July 26, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Looks like he's using the back end of the horse as his new campaign logo.

Thurman Munster IV July 26, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Hey. Look at the two assholes on that horse!

viennawoods13 July 26, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Yeah. and says he doesn't even know when the event is. which just means he doesn't listen to his wife. Say… maybe he's a real man after all!

deanbooth July 26, 2012 at 3:39 pm

That's just weird.

Veritas78 July 26, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Well, not this wife. It's best not to play favorites.

redarmyzombie July 26, 2012 at 8:51 pm

To be fair, we can only imagine what it must be like to live with that dried-up frigid cunt.

SayItWithWookies July 26, 2012 at 1:21 pm

As an Innately Superior People, it's every American's right to say shitty things about the other countries we're visiting. I mean, what is it about American exceptionalism that these stupid, lazy socialist foreigners don't understand?

coolhandnuke July 26, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Mitt's getting back at the Brits because they have better looking teeth than him.

widestanceromance July 26, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Rafalca (or whatever that surrogate husband's name is) also has better looking teeth than Romney. Not to rub it in, but Obama has teeth like Jesus.

OkieDokieDog July 26, 2012 at 1:22 pm

My fantasy is that he straps a Royal Corgi onto his car roof and then Queen Betty gets all pissed off and screams, OFF WIT HIS HEAD!

Guppy July 26, 2012 at 2:11 pm

The thing about being queen is that you don't have to scream.

"Do be a dear and take him out back, would you?"

OkieDokieDog July 26, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Oh sure, if she were pissed because someone insulted one of the lesser royals, but we're talking ROYAL CORGIS here.

Guppy July 26, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Ah yes, she'd rather take the more personal approach.

Hahaha, those Brits. There is no such thing as foolish masturbation.

In front of the Queen, in the Man U section wearing Arsenal, anywhere near Lindsey Graham or Camila Bowles (have you ever seen them in the same room naked?)

Not until now, in my mind's eye, and now I need some kind of very sharp stick. Thanks a lot.

That's hardly foolish. We'd send pledges in to do that in my fraternity, I wager.

Certainly. There are Stout Porters and Double Porters and Extra Porters, so why not black ones?

hagajim July 26, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Good to see Mittens' pomposity comes through with our Anglo brethren as well. I guess maybe he can't relate to them because their not plutocrats, at least not most of them.

rickmaci July 26, 2012 at 1:26 pm

He thinks we are ALL stupid ! Hopefully he will only be 49% correct.

randcoolcatdaddy July 26, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Graceless and rude – a wonderful expression of British understatement.

Mittens is way out of his foreign policy depth. Even the Swiss & Cayman Islands say you can bank on it.

He sounds like he needs to get his head out of his own ass and stop making us look worse than we already do. (I bet he's always the pee-er in the great golden showers debate too) I hate this guy so hard.

MissTaken July 26, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Mittens is just showing how much of a Real American® he is by going abroad and insulting the locals. In his next campaign ad he'll wear shorts and sandals with socks while taking pictures on every street corner of them furreners speakin' funny.

No, "Mitt Romney" is going to replace "John Thomas," if the Brits still use that, my knowledge of British culture deriving from Monty Python. As in, "That bloke was a real Mitt Romney so I punched him in his bollocks."

Worst part was when he tried to put the Queen's corgi on top of the carriage.

RadioBowels July 26, 2012 at 1:30 pm

Mitt didn't need anybody's help running his Olympics. Solely through his hard work, entrepreneurship and rugged individualism he carried out the greatest games since Berlin in '36. He even designed the centerpieces for the IOC banquet himself. But boy was Ann pissed when she found out that dressage was in the "summer" games. Mitt tried to assuage her anger by trying to eliminate the two man luge in "quiet rooms."

bobbert July 26, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Ice dressage might be interesting.

"I have listened to Mitt Romney's stump speech countless times. A standard refrain is to run down Europe – not a hard case to make at the moment – and that includes us." –Commentary in the Telegraph

Maybe his European trip is going to be like his speech to the NAACP–primarily an opportunity to be seen telling the useless* layabouts that their free ride is over.

I've said it before, but really: When he says shit like this, Mittens' TRUE audience is probably not the people in the room with him.

*I was going to say "no-account," but at least in Switzerland, his accounts are well-loved…

docterry6973 July 26, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Mitt is going all-out to win them over. The conservative Daily Telegraph notes that he was unable to remember the name of opposition leader Ed Miliband, referring to him repeatedly as 'Mr. Leader'.

The Telegraph also notes a passage from Romney's book 'No Apology' in which he offers is extra-special view or our extra-special allies:

'England is just a small island. Its roads and houses are small. With few exceptions, it doesn't make things that people want to buy. And if it hadn't been separated from the continent by water, it almost certainly would have been lost to Hitler's ambitions.'

They also note Romney's remark that he is impressed because he can see the Olympics 'from the backside' of 10 Downing Street. From the backside? I guess the Santorum fog was very light that day.

Oh, and I am not making any of this up. Except the Santorum part.

I shall insult them in France, I shall insult them on the seas and oceans, I shall insult with growing confidence and growing strength, I shall insult their island, whatever the cost may be. I shall insult them on the beaches, I shall insult on the landing grounds, I shall insult in the fields and in the streets, I shall insult in the hills; I shall never cease insulting.

Mitt just needs to bring along some musical backup to win those Limeys over.

weejee July 26, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Needs moar queefing. Oh Ann, Ann, if you would join in here.

TribecaMike July 26, 2012 at 2:03 pm

That dude needs to get in a studio with Rick Rubin and record a cover of "LSD Made A Wreck of Me," though I doubt it would surpass Rudi Protrudi's version… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oqADf9C4UI

Snark off- IF Mitt is indeed a devout Mormon, he is just lapping all this up. The Book of Mormon is chock-full of references to the persecution of the righteous, and I'm sure that the more people he alienates, the more self-righteously persecuted he feels.

Monsieur_Grumpe July 26, 2012 at 1:59 pm

There he goes putting the ugly in American.

Tundra Grifter July 26, 2012 at 2:00 pm

I think it's time we start The Great (r)Money Gaff Pool. I've got ten bucks sez he really puts his foot into it no later than September 15, 2012.

The Intrade spread on a November win for Mr. Obama is almost twenty points. That's the best news since yesterday, when Ole Newt predicted an (r)Money victory.

The Mitt-bot's ongoing software problems simply demonstrate an old adage in the field of AI: It's extremely hard to program an artificial intelligence, but quite easy to program an artificial idiot.

Between Willard's European Vacation, and Chick-Fil-A's public ass-kicking, I am almost happy this week.

Of course, the worse he does in "Europe," the better his base will think of him, and at this point, it is not his base he needs. What's the old bit, Ds fall in love with their candidates, Rs fall in line with theirs. They will eat his dingleberries on crackers as long as he is not Obama.

Dingleberries on crackers – breakfast of champions.

TribecaMike July 26, 2012 at 2:08 pm

This was an awkward way to change the heart of the British people, to say the least.

Lazy Media July 26, 2012 at 2:12 pm

What can you expect from a wazzock?

Nostrildamus July 26, 2012 at 2:28 pm

That article's a goldmine of charming Anglicisms, to wit:

"I couldn't give a monkeys about the Olympics."

Joshua Norton July 26, 2012 at 2:13 pm

He's trying to get that all important 5th century English/Germanic tribe vote.

Guppy July 26, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Do they come together and celebrate the Olympic moment?

Corporate sponsors of the Olympics™©® "Games" are people too, my friend.

anniegetyerfun July 26, 2012 at 2:31 pm

Sorry to do this again, guys, but Wonkville is back to not letting me submit links:
http://www.npr.org/2012/07/26/157356034/in-pakist

So, that is the WORST fucking pun that NPR has ever done, but the article is worthy of a read because:

Pakistan manufactures bagpipes. Seriously.
They also manufacture Civil War re-enactment costumes. So proud Southern Murkins spend their hard-earned money on clothing made in Pakistan so that they can act out the War of Northern Aggression.

emmelemm July 26, 2012 at 3:14 pm

You weren't kidding. Worst. Headline. Ever.

schvitzatura July 26, 2012 at 3:50 pm

If they can crank out AK-47s in Darra, I'm sure an order for some Springfield Model 1842 smoothbore musket repros could probably be done.

So some fat slob dressed in a cheeto-stained Pakistani-made frock coat can play Army of Northern Virginia.

I have to disagree with Cameron's description of Salt Lake City. Once you hit the middle of nowhere, it's still a three hour drive to SLC.

Jennyjen798 July 26, 2012 at 2:42 pm

May Romney receive a disco polo welcome. I'd say without the scantily clad women but I'd like to see his reaction honestly.

The British people doesn't trust Mitt anyways since he is an Auton, controlled by the Nestene Consciousness.

TribecaMike July 26, 2012 at 2:44 pm

Somewhere in hell, Benny Netanyahu is already regretting allowing Mitt into Israel.

BZ1 July 26, 2012 at 3:18 pm

A news commentator asked people on the street what they thought of Mitten's bon mot, they had no idea who he was!

viennawoods13 July 26, 2012 at 3:19 pm

You know, I just finally connected the dots. Of course, Mitt Rmoney ran the 2002 Olympics, where the Canadians whupped US butt in hockey, men and women, and someone had managed to bury a loonie (1 dollar coin, to you yanks)at centre ice. (so much for "security", Mitt) So, we merry prankster Canucks managed to stick it to Mitt way back then. I feel better now.

schvitzatura July 26, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Have the grievances about young, nubile English teens being spirited away to Momo Zion from green Albion, while the flower of British manhood was being blown apart in Flanders fields, been addressed on this trip?

Inquiring minds want to know!

rickmaci July 26, 2012 at 3:29 pm

So much for special.

OldRedneck July 26, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Willard makes Sarah Palin look like a genius!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TribecaMike July 26, 2012 at 5:14 pm

A total Mittastrophe, and he hasn't even encountered Zombie Oliver Reed yet.

Biff July 26, 2012 at 11:32 pm

So Rmoney is an Olympic Village community organizer, I see…

DahBoner July 27, 2012 at 9:52 am

He forgot about Poland!!!

ttommyunger July 27, 2012 at 10:48 am

Hoping for an audience with the Queen. You know he'd try to give her a little neck massage , amirite?

Veritas78 July 26, 2012 at 8:29 pm

Okay, that's one tough bird.
