Mitt and the Brits

So, Mitt Romney disses England and praises France. England and France are hereditary enemies, dating back to 1066. The Brits still call them the “frogs” in some instances, like Olympic games, wars, etc. Gaffe one.He tells the world that he doesn’t think security in London is very good. Gaffe two.

He boasts about meeting the leader of MI6, in spite of being told he couldn’t talk about that. He has no problem keeping secrets about himself and his financial life, but he had no problem breaking a security secret. What does that mean for keeping secrets in the office of the presidency, when it has to do with security reasons in foreign affairs. Gaffe three.

Could not remember Mr. Millibran’s name. Whose else will he forget? Gaffe four.

He made a racial-filled comment about how he identifies with the Brits because of the Anglo-Saxon ties. Well Barack’s mother was Irish/English, so Obama is half Irish/English, even if he does choose (which is his right) to identify more with his father’s half of him. Gaffe five.

Other than that, he attended fundraisers last night with the leaders of the banks involved in Libor. Banks like Barclay at the heart of a huge banking scandal that can affect world monetary affairs.

He dissed his own wife when he declared he had no idea when the dressage event was going to be, and that he probably would not watch anyway. That to me would be a huge insult. I guess Ann did her part by giving him five sons. Well, that’s the Mormon way with women. And I hope you are all aware of how they look at blacks.

Let’s hope he hasn’t tried to touch the Queen before she offers her own hand. Horrible breach of protocol. You don’t care? That is an unwillingness to abide by the protocols of the non-American countries he would have to deal with as president.

Next, Poland and Israel. I hope he doesn’t set us up for World War III.See More
