How Else Has Mitt Romney Insulted Jolly Olde Englande?

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Sorry Queen, but your tiny house is not up to snuffMitt 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.

Via Political Wire:

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.

Kindly get the fuck out of my country RMoney, I don't want you leeching off my socialism.

sati_demise July 26, 2012 at 3:33 pm

haha that would be kind of funny for Mitt to have a medical emergency there and be forced to participate in socialism and all the questions about how bad/good universal health is in England. rock and hard place

tessiee July 26, 2012 at 3:43 pm

I'd settle just for Mitt having a medical emergency, provided that it was painful and/or humilating.

Mittens already leeches off Europe by parking all of his money over there to avoid taxes. I bet he doesn't even pay the storage fees!

Tundra Grifter July 26, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Why don't the right wing nutz ever mention Israel (the little country they love so much) is socialist? The government pays thousands (perhaps as many as 10,000) ultra-religious men to not work and not join the military, despite compulsory service.

Of course, the toffee nosed bastards conquered most of the world, made the most powerful navy ever seen and turned 4 o'clock tea and the English language into staples of tinted peoples the world over so that Mittens could take jawbs from US Amercians and give them to the same tinted peoples.

His biggest insult was showing up as a Presidential candidate.

He needs to justify being over there to watch his wife compete in the dressage events. That's all this is.

Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning, of insults.

bumfug July 26, 2012 at 3:33 pm

Asked for his first impression of the British people, Mitt won hearts and minds by quipping, "Nice teeth…NOT!"

If "Chuxdic" isn't a real word, it should be.

England has a stiff upper lip and can take such idiocy.

What's scaring me is what Mittens is going to say about Poland and Israel. I'm envisioning "something, something, big ovens good for cooking (for) a lot of people, something, Hitler had some good ideas, something, something". Yikes.

Not only are they snotty and arrogant but almost all of the French he tried to convert to his particular cult told him "Non, monsieur" and then raised their forearms in tribute.

Like bringing up variants of "cheese-eating surrender monkeys" to spite the fact that France was home to one of the most celebrated resistance movements of the twentieth century, it seems crowing "We saved your asses during World War II!" to Britain is another sign that you have a jingoistic asshole on your hands.

I'm not British, but damn minimizing the suffering and struggle the British people went through during World War II is just so assholish it makes me wish I was British so I could maximize my outrage. It's especially a dick comment given that it's from the guy who wants to applaud the contributions of a country that was protected from the German war machine (twice!) by an entire ocean.

qwerty42 July 26, 2012 at 3:38 pm

It is a regular laff riot over at TPM. The British Press are having a field day.
And, from Sullivan:

There is a fantastic, hilarious, thigh-slapping irony in Mitt Romney's foreign tour. It's supposed to be about reaffirming America's traditional relationships with the traditional allies. It was going to be a meeting of conservative minds between Cameron and Romney. It was going to revive the old aura of the Atlantic alliance – the moment when the Queen's band played the Star Spangled Banner after 9/11 and the US out-pouring of support on 7/7. And, of course, it has turned into a riotously public demonstration of the complete opposite.

Nostrildamus July 26, 2012 at 4:02 pm

Wonderful tidbit in there is that Sheldon Adelson will be traveling to Israel at the same time as Mitt, and "may be present at a dinner between the candidate and the Israeli prime minister". Press is going the love that – "Sheldon and his pet candidate".

Mitt, if the British Isles were not isles but instead were a part of continental Europe with no natural defensive barrier like the English Channel, where do you suppose the Royal Navy's materiel would have been used instead? Oh, perhaps armored vehicles or more aircraft like the Spitfire and Hurricane? The logistical problems of having the BEF in France would not have existed so the entire British Army could have been deployed. No need for defenses against distractions like U-boats.

Less than two hours left for Thursday over there, GOP campaign staff has until dawn to convince Secret Service agents that cameras, pens and microphones are actually concealed lethal weapons that should be kept over 100 yards away from the candidate.

Mittens is the new Duke of Derp located in the hamlet of Dildoshire.

Geminisunmars July 26, 2012 at 5:22 pm

You know — I many change who I plan to vote for. We need a President again that the whole world can have a good laugh at.

ibwilliamsi July 26, 2012 at 5:22 pm

I'd tell him to stay there, but I'm pretty sure they'd deport him as an "undesirable".

owhatever July 26, 2012 at 5:48 pm

See how a real CEO gets it done? Mitt cut right through the bullshit to got the Brits to hate him in record time. Time is money, people.

Nostrildamus July 26, 2012 at 5:57 pm

These Brits are not real Americans.

elfgoldsackring July 26, 2012 at 6:01 pm

Apparently Mittens left the welcome dinner in tears after he overheard what the Dowager Duchess said about him.

randomsausage July 26, 2012 at 6:01 pm

Mitt is a fucking political genius: he's made complete tools (who BTW hate each other) – David Cameron and Boris Johnson – look good on the same day. This has been beyond the grasp of Tory spinmeisters for a good decade or so.

bikerlaureate July 26, 2012 at 6:30 pm

There's a fine line between genius and stupidity ?

STEPHEN DORFMAN ‏@21law

RT @JasonFebery According to friends in Gloucestershire, Brits are already starting to call Mitt Romney "the American Borat" #RomneyShambles

randomsausage July 26, 2012 at 6:57 pm

Mitt's stupidity goes up to 11

rocktonsam July 26, 2012 at 6:44 pm

here, here

va_real July 26, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Wouldn't it be awesome if they invited him to stay there- permanently!?

rickmaci July 26, 2012 at 6:08 pm

Shit. I guess we are all Ugly Americans today. Thanks for nothing Twitt.

BarryWDC July 26, 2012 at 6:17 pm

So, don't forget, Wonketeers–England's roads and houses are very small, but according to Mitt, Michigan's trees are just the right height. What a DUMBASS.

MonkeyMotion July 26, 2012 at 6:46 pm

Once I thought the GOP couldn't fine a bigger idiot than Reagan.
Then they found W, and I thought it again.
And then they found McCain/ Palin, and once again I was sure.
Now every time Mittens opens his dumbass piehole…

Apologies everyone — I think I'm inadvertently destroying the planet.

Who Invited Him?

Romney: "You know 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."

All he's worried about is protection for his wife's horse. The rest of the Olympics can be guarded by garden gnomes for all he cares. Romney: horse's ass.

Chet Kincaid July 26, 2012 at 7:17 pm

At this point, they might as well just play that flute-y '60s farce theme music from "Austin Powers" behind him wherever he goes.

TribecaMike July 26, 2012 at 7:40 pm

I'm sure the Brits were delighted to be informed that it was their geological positioning and not their people who kicked the Axis' arse. What's 450,900 dead in the epochal scheme of things anyway?

Tundra Grifter July 26, 2012 at 7:59 pm

This will teach England to keep out Michael The Silly Savage and let (r)Money in.

Limeylizzie July 26, 2012 at 9:01 pm

This Jolly Olde English person thinks he is the biggest, doziest cunt to run for President since Reagan.

MosesInvests July 26, 2012 at 9:44 pm

Bigger and dozier than Dubya?

Attila_T_Hun July 26, 2012 at 9:10 pm

If you "tweet", look for #romneyshambles #americanborat, and #mitthitsthefan.
His Anglo-Saxon bluntness is generating a cornucopia of jibes and jabs.

LibertyLover July 26, 2012 at 9:58 pm

Great. Now Mitt Romney is a transcontinental douche.

mosjef July 26, 2012 at 11:08 pm

It's OK. Romnuts thinks he's in Australia.

DahBoner July 27, 2012 at 9:45 am

You call this an 'Olympics'???

Back when I was young, we had a Motherfucking™ Olympics that included Poetry!!!!! *

Already graced by the nickname of "Mitt the Twit" in England

ttommyunger July 27, 2012 at 11:01 am

It can't be an easy task to travel to the birthplace of Twits and out-Twit them, but Romney pulled it off.

You like "bright twits" better?

viennawoods13 July 26, 2012 at 9:15 pm

See, that's what you get with socialist medicine- crappy beer!

sullivanst July 27, 2012 at 8:39 am

Say that over a pint of "dog" in a Geordie pub… you might be thankful for that socialist medicine soon after.

viennawoods13 July 27, 2012 at 10:17 am

Oh hell I'd never insult British beer. But Labatt's? Ugh.

I grew up on a farm, 2 miles from a dance hall in the middle of Bumfuck. It was called "The Bohemian Hall".
