He's very clumsily trying to discuss the "Special Relationship" between the British and Americans that has existed, in varying forms, since 1945. However, when I mean clumsily, I am really saying in the most retarded way possibly.

Best of all: Since Obama has Kenyan roots and Kenya was a British colony until the mid-1960s, thanks to his dad, Obama is way more British than Romney can ever hope to be.

Obama even beats this loser at being white.

One of the advisers, when asked how a Romney White House would address the European debt crisis, said: "I'm not sure what our policy response is."

Is it Bapp?

Isn't that a Palin?

You're thinking of little Targg Palin. Bapp is all Romney.


Oh you're thinking of Torg Palin. Bapp was Mitt Romney's fifth son who designed an avant garde ballet outfit for Rafalca which was a little too tight and caused her to fart in a judge's face. This is the last picture known to exist of Bapp. If you look closely you can see the terror in his eyes:

G'day, mates! It's great to be here amongst Anglos. I'm still struggling to understand how white people have such atrocious teeth, but I'll let that slide. We can probably blame it on socialism. Anyway, I get you people. I love Mr. Bean, but that Benny Hill was much too saucy for my household. In closing, remember remember the sixth of November and vote Romney!

This topic came up on my regular travel forum this morning, where quite a few Brits hang out. One of the usual Tory apologists (a Scotsman) had this addled response:

"Depends who the quote was meant for. It's from a British paper, doesn't seem to have been made to any US reporters and it's perfectly possible the quote was meant for English speakers, rather than American speakers.

"Anglo Saxon" in English (and most other European languages) refers to a political culture, rather than a race one. Ireland, and the Celtic UK provinces, are part of that culture: Germany, Scandinavia and Holland aren't. None of us Celts wastes energy affecting outrage when our culture of the rule of law, free speech, unbridled media and open markets is described as Anglo-Saxon (though I personally get a wee bit miffed when a protectionist tax-dodger like Romney claims to share our values)...

By all means erect whatever neurotic conspiracy theories you want about your toxic political system. But don't drag us into it.



They're adorable when they're acting daffy and above-it-all at the same time.

What the merry fark are you talking about?

Are you honestly suggesting that the rule of law is uniquely anglo-saxon? Had nothing to do with the Greeks, Hammurabi or anyone but a bunch of maruading German tribes who scraped together enough brain cells to cross the Channel and intermarry with the blue-stained local nutcases?

History starts for these people at the American Civil War. Everything else is pretty hazy.

Aarontology: MaudlinMutantMollusk: Mitt supports everything. And nothing

/all at the same time

They're running an anyone but incumbent campaign in it's purest form. At least when Kerry tried it, he had policy to propose.

Romney and company honestly seem to believe that because he says something that it should be good enough for the masses, and that he shouldn't have to actually offer an alternative or policy.

It's the out of touch entitlement of being a CEO.


This. I keep asking everyone what Romney stands for, and nobody has any decent answer other than "He isn't Obama." I can't believe the idiocy of that kind of a statement. Castro isn't Obama either, so I guess that means we should all write him in, right? Or Putin? What about Ghaddafi. We can write in Ahmadinnerjacket too, he isn't Obama so he MUST be better. Right guys? Right??

The Romney people have decided to use the playbook Hillary Clinton refused to use in 2008. Questioning his "American Roots", while effective when the man was just a Senator from Chicago is effective is not so effective when he's been President for 3 years and kills terrorists with nighttime commando raids and socialist drone strikes.
