There Goes the Special Relationship

Let me begin by saying, “Thank you, God.”

From The Guardian:

“Mitt Romney handed Barack Obama a priceless gift for the U. S. presidential election campaign when the presumptive Republican nominee blundered on his first diplomatic outing by questioning whether London was capable of staging a successful Olympic Games.

“In a move that astonished Downing Street, hours before it laid on a special reception for Romney at No. 10, he told NBC there were ‘disconcerting’ signs about the preparations for the Games.

One senior Whitehall source said:  ‘What a total shocker.  We are speechless.’

“David Cameron wasted no time in slapping down Romney hours after his remarks were broadcast.  On a visit to the Olympic Park, the prime minister said:  ‘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.'”

Cameron gets the rhetorical gold, Mittens gets the rhetorical lead.

And, GOP, don’t you think you need to get a new nominee?  Wouldn’t you agree there are “disconcerting” signs about him?
