Mitt Romney is trying to prove his foreign policy chops are so much better than stupid hapless old Obama’s, and so he and his advisors are barnstorming across London, whinging about the threat from the Soviet Union. But His Lord High Hairgel has not had the easiest of receptions, as every person in that small island nation has their knickers up their bum because he is constantly insulting them. That’s right. Mitt Romney managed to make a trip supposed to “project leadership” into an international incident with our closest ally. But is laughing at their stupid Olympics (which could not possibly compare to the “national disgrace” helmed by Ol Mittens) the first time he has insulted Great Britain? We will give you one guess.

Romney wrote, in his book, No Apology:
“England is just a small island. Its roads and houses are small. With few exceptions, it doesn’t make things that people in the rest of the world 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.”
Special relationship is special, all right.
