“It’s a good thing the British do not vote in our elections” #romneyshambles

Is it really possible to compare a politician unfavourably to Sarah Palin?

It’s not often that I link to the Daily Mail but this headline nailed it:

‘What a car crash… worse than Sarah Palin': British politicians’ fury at Romney’s blunder-filled visit to London ahead of Olympics

The Democrats have gleefully issued this video. Enjoy.

    Hm. From an American perspective I’d have thought that ad sounds a bit like saying “Well, Mitt Romney may be popular here in the States, but if the Brits had their way he’d never get elected” — you only have to ask yourself how well that would go down in reverse (“Don’t vote Labour! The Americans will be mighty p*ssed off if you do!”) to begin to doubt its value as a campaign message. But no doubt they know their electorate better than I do…

  • I think the point is that he’s not a good international diplomat, so if he can so quickly annoy Britain, how quickly will he seriously rile countries who won’t so quickly write his comment off as stupid and irrelevant, countries who might actually do the USA or its citizens in their countries harm?
