Here it is. This is the moment where "you didn't build that" gets knocked out of the news cycle, and Mittarded comments about England start getting play.

I'm willing to bet Bain returns not too long after that.

And this guy will win a bunch of states. It's mind-bottling.

Lorelle: I'd like to see him with Julian Clary.


Rik Mayall, and Ade Edmonson with cricket bats.


vernonFL: Mitt Romney might have some mild form of Asperger's syndrome or Autism.


He's was born with a silver spoon jammed up his backside.

Why run for President when you can't even talk without your foot in your mouth?
 
2012-07-26 10:11:37 PM
Also, he should start shilling for Brawndo now.
 
2012-07-26 10:11:38 PM
I think he's working on a deal to strip all of our assets and sell us back to England for a profit.

Go for broke. Team him up with Sacha Baron Cohen.


Sacha Baron Cohen in character as Prince Philip.

And to think this whole overseas jaunt was to show how Mitt had real international experience. And is showing off both how incompetent he is and how utterly lucky he was to be born into wealth.

Mitt Romney is Dubya Part 2.
 
2012-07-26 10:16:01 PM
Who did he claim built them? Did he tell them that they didn't build their own houses?

Romney's going for gold in the Douchecathalon.
 
2012-07-26 10:17:30 PM
Ahh Romney. Just keep talking... Just keep talking.

Awe Mitt! He can't help it. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth.
 
2012-07-26 10:20:42 PM
I love how he has no idea how much stuff is made by companies in or at least headquartered in the United Kingdom. Also that he's unaware that the citizens and corporations from the United Kingdom were, and actually may still be, the largest foreign owners of property in the US.

If you want a top of the heap luxury car, your options are Rolls Royce, Bentley or Aston Martin. All made in England.

He's worse. Bush would just say something silly but fundamentally harmless. Mitt is outright ignorant and condescending.

What's he gonna say in Israel?

"Some of my friends own gas stations."
 
2012-07-26 10:23:25 PM

Dinki: 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.


Why has no one assembled a "Romney's greatest hits" summary of the 47 Republican primary debates? Surely it would be catastrophically hilarious!

WhyteRaven74: Guntram Shatterhand: Mitt Romney is Dubya Part 2.

Dubya wasn't harmless, he just didn't give a fark because daddy could fix everything if he went off half-cocked, right up until he farked up the country. Romney is in the same mold: poor little rich boy who never had to deal with real adversity wanting power because he has never earned anything honestly or by hard work, and doesn't mind breaking his toys or abandoning his power because he has a cushion to fall back on.

and I'm sure this line, "And if it hadn't been separated from the continent by water, it almost certainly would have been lost to Hitler's ambitions" plays well over the pond.

2012-07-26 10:28:09 PM

Guntram Shatterhand: Dubya wasn't harmless,


Well I was thinking in terms of making comments like Romney did today, not in terms of overall scope.

simplicimus: "And if it hadn't been separated from the continent by water, it almost certainly would have been lost to Hitler's ambitions" plays well over the pond.


Let's put it this way, there are Brits who would punch his lights out if they had the chance for that comment.
 
2012-07-26 10:28:15 PM

Sliding Carp: They should make him debate Prince Phillip on live TV.


Oh my god, yes.
 
2012-07-26 10:29:09 PM
I have a theory. My theory is that Romney is a sane, reasonably intelligent man who has recently wakened from a nightmarish obsession and realized that the last goddamn thing in the world he wants is to be POTUS. And I don't blame him - I wouldn't want the job either.
So he is torpedoing his own campaign. It's the only rational explanation.

Bathia_Mapes: Sliding Carp: They should make him debate Prince Phillip on live TV.

That would be sublime. Post-debate Mitt would crawl away, whimpering.


So would my liver. It would be worth it.

He probably has a major speech set for Friday night, say 8PM local time.

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

"Elsewhere" huh? The a cute way to refer to a country where 4000 Americans and hundreds of British troops died.

I missed the latest update. Is the nation Great Britain or the United Kingdom?

The country is officially named the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Try telling a Scot or a North Irishman he's a Briton, though.


Scots won't care. They live on the island of Great Britain.

Irishmen will be offended because they don't. They live on Ireland.


I think you meant "English", not "Briton"

YOU DIDN'T DEFEND THAT. SOMEONE ELSE DID IT FOR YOU
 
2012-07-26 10:38:11 PM

Dinki: "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.


C'mon, Rmoney didn't really write that did he. Checks the book. That's insulting and just plain wrong.

The houses may look small to you Mr. Romney, because as we know members of your stupid religious cult need extra space for all your wives (plural), public and private. I assume you have a large house. Wink. Wink. And here is the kicker, Mr. Romney. Air planes in the second world war crossed dry land as easily as they crossed water.

This Romney farker is more stupid than Sarah Palin. At least she has heard of Scotch.
 
2012-07-26 10:38:12 PM
In his defense, it's not like this is something he just said during this tour. It's a blurb from a book he wrote a few years ago.

/doesn't make it any less stupid, though

Hmmmm...

Perhaps the elders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints have been pressuring him to run for POTUS, in order to fulfill Joseph Smith's White Horse Prophecy?

...and he doesn't want the job?

Surprisingly, this entire debacle has been relatively low on the trolls.

I think they're all sobbing quietly in their bathrooms.

Scots are Britons under any definition of that word. Nothern Irish are British, but perhaps not Britons.

Oh dear god, did he just insinuate that it was the English Channel that saved them from Hitler?

That it was merely the Channel that kept them from crumbling under the Nazi assault? Really? I mean, farking REALLY?

Holy Fark, this guy is hopelessly retarded.

We need to organize an apology for this guy's idiocy.
 
2012-07-26 10:46:05 PM
Mock him all you like, this won't hurt him a bit with the average American voter. Quite the contrary. As a rule, Americans are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons. shiatting on other countries for no particular reason appeals to them, even if... hell, especially if it's total bullshiat and mindbogglingly ignorant to boot. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if this was the opposite of a gaffe: a totally calculated and carefully planned statement. People who are seriously offended by this sort of thing weren't going to vote for him anyway, but it may get the 'dumbass redneck' demographic a little more enthusiastic about voting for a nonchristian.

To be fair, there's a huge amount of truth to that. Its still dumb to say it to their faces.
