I see. So he shot off his mouth, with diplomatic repercussions, without knowing all the facts.

I think he was just trying to screw with Rafalca's competitors.

I heard Rafalca is an Arabian. Probably a sleeper agent. Bachmann should start an investigation.

Discussion of this gambit initially started last year in Turks and Caicos, during the Opening Procession of the Indigent at the Fédération Équestre Internationale's Grand Prix Dressage Championship and Murdering of the Poors.

Rafalca is now totally in the heads of the other horsie ballerinas, thanks to some well-laid plans perfectly executed by Mr. Romney.

Uh, what? Romney was taken "out of context" when he said that the Brits were doing a rather shoddy job at preparing for the Olympics?

You know, the phrase "out of context" actually means something, and it can't just be thrown out there whenever you want people to ignore something embarrassing.
 
2012-07-27 02:32:52 PM  
To be fair to Romney, it is tough to travel to a foreign country and learn to speak the language.

Romney didn't say anything about the security issues there that the media haven't been saying for years.

Another swing and a miss, desperate Make-A-Romney-Scandal crowd.

The PM and the Mayor have already walked back what they said. Don't greenlight that, though. Doesn't fit the narrative.

When I said I was against bailing out US car makers then they were bailed out I took credit for the effort.

When I rooted the New England Patriots to win the Superbowl and the Giants won I take credit, your welcome NJ.

Sadly, Romney only has a Missouri Fox Trotter. That makes him more relatable than his wife.

it's pathetic. what did he say that wasn't true? just because he didn't follow it up by shoving his nose up the queen's ass and telling her it smells as pure as the driven snow doesn't mean it's worth all the butthurt and pigpiling that's going on.

There are concepts such as awareness, diplomacy, and tact; these are essential for aspiring world leaders. And don't take that to mean being exclusively a pandering wuss (just in case you were heading there).

I swear to god we are finally going to have a 3 person presidential debate, unfortunately 2 of those people will be Mitt Romney. Come on Dem PACS I live in FL I want to see the ads that have every issue and the video of Romney on both sides. Tag line.... In FL we wear our flip flops, we don't elect them.

It's called tact and diplomacy. He has a different responsibility than the press. When asked if he feels London is ready for the Olympics, as a candidate for President, Romney should've said, "I have full faith that London will do an amazing job hosting the Olympics and will prove why they are a world class city."

If we truly do have a special relationship with England, and share a common Anglo-Saxon history, then why would he basically insult them for no good reason?
