"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."

Does anyone think that if Obama had written something like that the right wouldn't be screaming how he disrespected our closet ally? Amazing.

Did he need a Teleprompter for that?

As opposed to the trees in Michigan, which are "just the right size."

...and if the USA hadn't been separated from Europe by the Atlantic Ocean, we'd almost certainly still be a British colony, genius.

Oh my goodness. I suddenly became a big fan of Romney's new comedy special. Wait, are you telling me that this is part of his campaign?

They should make him debate Prince Phillip on live TV.

It continues to amaze me. Does the GOP even bother to vet their candidates any more? I really think they have completely fallen for their echo chamber, and believe that everyone will only see what they see.

The Republican Party is just a small island. Its ideas and aspirations are small. With few exceptions, it doesn't say 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 amicable to Hitler's ambitions.

It's a major political party in collapse. In a way, we're lucky to be around to see it. It doesn't happen very often.

While quite a site to behold, much like the rare beached whale, it sure makes an awful stink.

And if it hadn't been separated from the continent by water, it almost certainly would have been lost to the Mongolian invasion of 1281."

Romney is only there to retrieve the bust of Winston Churchill that Bismarck Humpstain Fauxbungler sent so unceremoniously back to England in 2009.

Okay, I put that there as a joke, because the rightwingers lost their shiat when Obama sent it back. They didn't research enough to know that it was ON LOAN to us from Britain.

And I wasn't sure it was Churchill, so I did a Google Search on "Obama sends back Churchill bust."

This is what I farking found:
Romney promises to bring Churchill bust back to White House

Unreal.

The way Mitt is performing over there, if he asked for it they would probably smash him over the farking head with it.

No I'm thinking more along the lines of David Mitchell.

Romney was the best of the worst in the buffet that was on offer. There's not a single Conservative out there who doesn't believe this in their heart of hearts.

But he's not black, so in their minds that makes him more desirable of being in the white house than Pres Obama.

FTA: "You live here, you see the sites day in and day out," he said. "But for me, as I drive past the sculpture of Winston Churchill and see that great sculpture next to Westminster Abbey and Parliament and with him larger than life, the enormous heft of that sculpture suggesting the scale of the grandeur and the greatness of the man, it tugs at the heartstrings to remember the kind of example that was led by Winston Churchill."

I think that Romney might be a little too fond of Mr Churchill...

As a 2nd cousin of Mr. Churchill a few times removed, I am really creeped out.

Come on, Mitty. I mean...come on.

Have we seen Romney's "Dukakis in the tank" moment yet, or is that still to come? Right now he's making both Dukakis and Gary Rice look like they had well-run campaigns.

Yeah, I figured "British soldiers" might raise a few hackles. IIRC, there were some Scottish brigades involved.

Great Britain = England, Scotland, and Wales

Romney meant to say the United Kingdom, not Great Britain.

Why doesn't he just go ahead and support a revolution there and hope that a militant organization takes power?

Remember when the term "Presidential material" used to mean something? I mean like what the hell happened, when did society make it acceptable for presidential candidates to act like tards?
