Romney in Shambles as Britain Proclaims Him Worse than Sarah Palin
The British reaction to Mitt Romney has gone from openness, to skepticism, to mocking, to concluding that Mitt Romney is worse than Sarah Palin.
Daily Mail Political Editor James Chapman has been providing the world a play by play of Romney’s British implosion via his Twitter account. Romney started things off by criticizing London’s preparedness for the Olympics. He then forgot the name of British Labour Leader Ed Miliband, and then he admitted that he had been given a secret briefing by MI6. This led the British to ask aloud if they have another George W. Bush on their hands, “Romney blunders again by revealing he’s had (supposedly) top secret briefing by John Sawers, MI6 boss. Do we have a new Dubya on our hands?”
After his visit to Whitehall, Chapman offered two of the kinder reviews of Mitt Romney, “Serious dismay in Whitehall at Romney debut. ‘Worse than Sarah Palin.’ ‘Total car crash’. Two of the kinder verdicts.” Chapman also reported another verdict from British meet and greet with Mitt, “Another verdict from one Romney meeting: ‘Apparently devoid of charm, warmth, humour or sincerity’”
Getting compared to Sarah Palin is one thing, but being called worse than Palin is an indication of the epic display of fail that Romney is putting on in London.
If you thought things couldn’t possibly get worse for Mitt Romney, you were wrong. How does one top being unfavorably compared to Sarah Palin? If you’re Mitt Romney, you get mocked in front of 60,000 people.
The Telegraph is reporting that London Mayor Boris Johnson mocked Romney’s readiness comment, “Quite a moment from the Mayor of London Boris Johnson. Shortly after Rix had lit the flame he really went for it in Hyde Park. He referenced Mitt Romney’s ‘London isn’t ready’ quip and shot back in style. “Are we ready?” he called and the crowd went wild. There may even have been a hint of the Obama-friendly “Yes we can!” in there – he may have jumped into a winning scenario but I’ve not heard a politician get that reaction before.”
For their part, the White House rubbed salt in Romney’s wounds by pointing out that President Obama has full confidence in Britain’s ability to provide a secure Olympics. White House Spokesman Jay Carney said, “In keeping with our special relationship, the president also made it clear that he has the utmost confidence in our close friend and ally, the United Kingdom, as they finalize preparations to host the London Olympics.”
That special relationship is being put in jeopardy by a Republican nominee who can’t stop insulting the British people while making an ass out of himself. Instead of proving that he is Commander in Chief material, Romney is justifying John McCain’s 2008 selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate. To think, that the Romney campaign actually agreed to foreign policy being the the topic of the third presidential debate.
The British opinion of Romney has gone from he might be another Bush to oh my God, he makes Sarah Palin seem prepared.
Not since World War II has London seen a bombing as thorough as Mitt Romney’s.
So, Mittens, How's the Anglo-Saxon-Thingie working out for you?
The unfortunate thing to keep in mind however as we watch Mitt prove his ineptitude and continued arrogance is that for many of the Tea Party fools and blue collar "I'm glad to always vote against my own best interests" voters, Romney's being called out as ridiculous by foreign governments and press is a badge of honor.
Remember Rumsfield's gloating about "old Europe" at the start of the war with Iraq. The same yahoo's lapped it up. The RNC and Fox willtry to turn this around as Mitt standing up and speaking truth to "the Socialists". Nevertheless, the man is a disaster. And we stand poised possibly to elect a bigger fool than "W" to the world stage.
OK, so how bad do the jokes have to get before MittWitt gets replaced by the RNC?
It's not like Romney supporters will pay attention to what ferriners say. Still, it's pretty delicious fodder for Obama's campaign.
Mitt Romney's mouth is somehow big enough to fit both his foot [italic]and[/italic] his silver spoon in it at the same time.
[quote]he admitted that he had been given a secret briefing by MI6.
Why would MI6 brief this asshole?
Who the fuck cares what the British think? I sure as shit don't.
I don't think he will end up running against Obama.
they probably informed him that their foreign clandestine service is called MI6, then offered him tea and kicked him down the stairs.
Romney backtracks on London Olympics.
The flipper strikes again!
I'm afraid this will make many Americans defensive and more likely to support this imbecile.
[quote]"Apparently devoid of charm, warmth, humour or sincerity."
That sounds like Mitt!!
Vote, don't gloat.
I second r6 in wanting to know your opinions.
Of course, the underscoring, but unsaid implication in the British press: Is this the best the Republicans could come up with? And look at his opposition. I think this leads to a lot of the bewilderment with Romney's gaffes. It's not an issue of politics for them in that I believe they saw all of the Republican candidates as being relatively similar or different by slight shades. But in Romney they are seeing the looniness, hypocrisy and lack of intellect, competence and moral soundness of the others. It's all stuff we've discuss here over the last year. Huntsman was the sanest in the bunch and look at the attention the Republican primary voters gave him.
The hard-core, Republican-till-I-die voter won't care obviously, but the vital swing-votes wouldn't like this sort of stuff at all.
Stay out of Europe you white trash American Romney
The October 22 Romney-Obama debate will be on foreign policy. That should be fun.
I don't understand what all the fuss is about. He simply said what everyone else has been saying for weeks. I'm sensing a media concocted storm here. The papers today are all carrying the story but I've yet to speak to anyone who actually cares. This was just a way for Boris and Cameron to drum up the false impression we're all terribly excited about the Games and united in thinking they will be a success. It's not true and Romney was correct in stating that there are concerns about security.
The only real gaffe was calling Ed Miliband 'Mr Leader' but I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.
[quote]Huntsman was the sanest in the bunch
He's also a blatant political opportunist who served as Obama's Ambassador to China and then turned around and ran against him.
[quote]I don't understand what all the fuss is about. He simply said what everyone else has been saying for weeks.
That may well be true, R23, but the fact of the matter is that he shouldn't have said it. The accuracy of the statement is somewhat beside the point. It was a stupid and unnecessary thing for him to have said and shows that he lacks even a modicum of common sense. And we've certainly seen plenty of evidence of that over the past 12 months. This is only further confirmation that Romney is a dolt with a tin-ear.
Had some visiting dignitary from another country come to the US and told us that we didn't seem quite prepared for an event we were hosting, Americans would be very displeased, to say the least.
Compared to Romney Palin is an entertaining bimbo in a librarian costume.
Evil alians and demons know all they have to do is get in contact with Mitt Romney who will glady sell out the entire planet earth (with the human race, the wildlife, and eco system on it) for a quick buck. That man is evil.
darnit, ALIENS of course
R23, There is a long held expectation that the POTUS should represent the best of America. When faced with many natural disasters and crises, sometimes there's little a president can actually accomplish. A true leader instills hope and combats anxiety, through charm and diplomacy, and of course trying to say the right thing at the right time. That's one of the reasons why Pres. Obama visited the victims of the Colorado shooting. People wonder if Mitt would have said appropriate words of comfort.
[quote]People wonder if Mitt would have said appropriate words of comfort.
Mitt would have probably rambled on and on about how great it is that the local theatre seats, the hospital beds, and the coffins have the right size.
[quote]I don't understand what all the fuss is about. He simply said what everyone else has been saying for weeks.
Would you like a list, luvvie?
* talked about "looking out the backside of No.10", which would imply that he was peeking out of David Cameron's butthole;
* discussed his visit with MI6;
* the "anglo-sexon heritage" quote from his staff, which conveniently ignores the Norman conquest of England in 1066;
I mean, really. Trying to downplay this as a single quote blown out of proportion is just stupid.
Palin is the typical bimbo the Republican party attracts.
Romney is the typical man-bimbo, the Republican party attracts.
Don't forget the former CEO from Barclay's who was forced to resign because of the LIBOR scandal then had to back out of hosting Romney's fundraiser in London. The optics of that are horrible.
Mitt the Twit is a punchline in a nation that is a strong ally. While those people won't be voting in our election, their view of this jackass is sweeping across the USA.
R22, the debate nights have been announced already?
Yes, r34, they've been announced.
The fact that the two leading right-wing politicians in the UK (the PM and Mayor of London) didn't think Romney was worth helping out or offering a fig-leaf to is very interesting. They clearly think there's no chance of him becoming President.
It's not just the UK politicians that aren't helping him, he wanted to make a big splash in Germany. That was doomed when Angela Merkel told his people that she and her husband will be attending an opera festival and she would not be available.
R23 its called being respectful of your hosts. Its called showing some decorum and some class. For years people have been saying the Queen is a gold filling in a mouth full of decay. Would you think if Mitt expressed that while in England it would not be a big deal?
[quote]The unfortunate thing to keep in mind however as we watch Mitt prove his ineptitude and continued arrogance is that for many of the Tea Party fools and blue collar "I'm glad to always vote against my own best interests" voters, Romney's being called out as ridiculous by foreign governments and press is a badge of honor.
Agreed. Those low income dumbasses believe in entitled, wealthy, white men being allowed to fail upward. Thy embrace this level of ignorance.
[quote] Romney's being called out as ridiculous by foreign governments and press is a badge of honor.
True, but none of those people would vote for Obama if you held a loaded gun to their head, so they aren't a major concern. His stumbling buffoon act might have an impact on undecided voters though, and that is important.
Dream on R40. 99% of people already know how they are voting.
Question: is the American MSM actually reporting on Romney's PR blunders?
How prominently are his gaffes featured in the news?
R41, this election is likely to be close enough that swaying even a single percentage point of that 10% remaining could be sufficient to make the difference between victory and defeat.
R4 beat me to it!
The entire world sees how bad this guy is, unfortunately many Americans don't.
America is becoming a danger to the world.
[quote]How prominently are his gaffes featured in the news?
It's in the print media across the nation and I've heard live reports at least six or seven times since yesterday's evening news. It has been the lead story in many TV and radio news broadcasts.
[quote]America is becoming a danger to the world.
And to itself.
Cameron rolled out the red-carpet for Mittens.
Unlike Merkel, Cameron provided for Romney the maximum welcome that protocol allows for a non-visiting head of State, for example, allowing Romney to enter through the famous 10 Downing entrance door.
No wonder they're pissed.
Repugs may want to pooh-pooh this , but it's another reveal of the internal and overt bully that Romney is; the diplomatic equivalent of an unwanted and forced-upon-you haircut to the UK, courtesy of an unthinking Romney who never has had a thought beyond himself and his spooky,insane ambition.
There once was a twit named Mitt,
who had an Olympian fit!
Hold his tongue he could not,
the arrogant snot,
and he pissed off a nation of Brits!
You do not criticize the American President on foreign soil. If Obama had done that in 2008, every Freeper would be screaming TRAITOR.
To all you Democrats who are lusting about this overblown remark, none other than BARBARA BOXER has just sponsored a bill to give $75 million more in military aid to Israel. This is American liberalism at its utterly vilest. What if it were a Republican President and a South American country she would be demanding his head. Why are Arabs so horrible that liberal America singles them out for such contempt? Remember
Boxer's march for Anita Hill? (Incidentally, one of the oter women who marched to the Senate for Anita Hill, Rep. Jolene Unsoeld, SPONSORED the bill to make assault weapons legal!) I propose that that DLers all head to the Mideast and join the Israeli Army with their atomic bombs and napalm. Barbara Boxer is a racist Nazi whore!!!
R53, your post makes no sense. And has nothing to do with this thread.
If ANY party is a slave to apartheid Israel, it's the Republican Party.
Both parties give too much aid to Israel. I think the question is, should the American people not be asked whether or not they want their money to support the Israeli military when there is barely enough money to pay for the things Americans need in their own country?
r55 is right on target. We need to get rid of the people in Congress who are in Israel's pocket -- starting with Joe L. The billions going to Israel are needed at home.
Joe L. is on the way out - he's not running for re-election. He'll be gone in January.
Thanks R57. That's good news.
He is worse than Palin? what, no mention of McCain?
It's really just a matter of having good manners. When you're invited somewhere, you don't show up & accept hospitality while insulting your host & his home: "Thanks very much for asking me to visit, but I just hate your carpet & your kids look retarded & your wife is too fat & your dog is ugly".
It's not as if he were being presented at Court & made some minor breach of an arcane technicality that only snobs would notice -- this is the most basic rule of behaving like a civilized human being, which even Joe The Plumber probably understands & observes. When you're a guest, be polite & say only nice things -- if you want to lambaste your hosts, wait until you get home.
[quote] 99% of people already know how they are voting.
You're wrong about that. In Ohio, where I am, recent polls say that number is 83%. There are still people out there who haven't decided. Mitten's European disaster might sway some of them.
[quote]Mitten's European disaster might sway some of them.
Yeah. For Ohio voters, it will sway them TOWARD him. Idiot badge of honor and all.
Ohio is going to be a repeat win for Obama.
Obama is doing pretty well in Ohio so far. Romney has not been ahead in an Ohio poll for about two months, and Obama has lead in the majority of Ohio polls throughout 2012.
Today's new Ohio poll has Obama up by 8, with an overall RCP average of +5.0.
Check out the graph for the Ohio trendline:
The point here is not that US knuckledraggers will be influenced against Romney come November, but the possibility that the US media elite will be influenced against Romney between now and November.
Romney will pick Senator Rob Portman from Ohio as his VP to swing the state his way.
That's the only reason.
I think you're right that Portman is the most likely choice for Romney, R66. If he loses Ohio, it's over for him.
[quote] Yeah. For Ohio voters, it will sway them TOWARD him. Idiot badge of honor and all.
Again, nobody who thinks this is a positive for Mittens would vote for Obama in a billion years. They're simply not represented in that undecided 17%.
[quote]Obama Is Absolutely Crushing Mitt Romney In Pivotal Ohio
Jul. 27, 2012
The poll, from non-partisan We Ask America, gives Obama a much wider lead in Ohio than he has had in recent polls, including surveys from Purple Strategies, Rasmussen or Public Policy Polling.
But the poll is not a fluke, We Ask America COO Gregg Durham said, explaining that the firm was surprised at the results the first time, so it re-polled a different sample and got virtually identical results. Obama leads Romney with almost 48 percent of the vote to Romney's 40 percent.
We've detailed before the importance of Ohio as a swing state in November's election. Also, only one president has gone on to win the White House without carrying Ohio's electoral votes.
"The President has been very active in the state," Durham said by phone. "They've been campaigning extremely hard."
On Friday, the Obama campaign announced that the president would campaign in Akron, Ohio, next Wednesday.
What's also benefitting Obama in the state is that it is one of the few where unemployment dropped in June. Its 7.2 percent unemployment rate is well below the national average of 8.2 percent.
The eye-popper in the We Ask America poll comes from the unusually high number of Republicans — almost one in five — that choose Obama over Romney. Romney actually wins the Independent vote. But the results held up to nearly identical percentages the second time around, Durham said.
No matter how bad the olympics is, mitt will have to say it was wonderful
R10 = a turd who doesn't belong at the DL.
Ohio is not a swing state and choosing Portman won't help him. He'd have to steal it the way Bush did in 2004 to carry it.
We realise that sending you Piers Morgan can only be construed as an act of aggression and that you are entitled to payback. We are a fair people. We accept that.
But sending us Mitt Romney, went too far. Too. Fucking. Far.
Portman wil not add anything to the ticket--and expect the Democrats to come out with guns blazing as far as Portman goes. I have said for a long, long time that Pawlenty is a more likely candidate. He is an evangelical, and the Rethugs needs those fundie votes. Go to ElectoralVote.com and look at the state reaces WITHOUT the Ramussen polls. MI is trending in Obama's direction, and NC could tred for Romney. If the fundies stay home, it could make a difference in swing states.
Romney's visit to the UK just proves how clueless he is. Like Dubya, but not as goofy. Both come from entitled backgrounds, and both are very similiar in their interests. The difference is that Romney sees himself as more knowing than Dubya. If Dubya was the class clown, Romney is the class snob.
Earlier in the day, the Queen gave a Buckingham Palace reception for visiting heads of state and leaders of governments. Michelle Obama was warmly greeted by the Queen, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge.
Bob Costas tried to make a plug for Romney, said nobody can question that he "SAVED" the Salt Lake Olympics. Bullshit! He didn't! I want to slug Bob Costas.
Did any Americans see the Cumberbatch opening to the Olympics.
"LONDON IS READY (bitch)! "
I couldn't help but think of Romney gaffe. Wow.
Romney could take a dump live on stage at one of the presidential debates and still have half America vote for him.
[quote]Ohio is not a swing state and choosing Portman won't help him.
Ohio is not a swing state? That's news to most people who work in politics.
But you're right that polling shows Portman will not necessarily help Romney in Ohio by more than a point or two. People mainly vote for the top of the ticket so if Romney wants to win Ohio he has to get people to want to vote for HIM.
Right now he is not making the sale.
[quote]Romney could take a dump live on stage at one of the presidential debates and still have half America vote for him.
It's because that half of the country considers themselves anointed whenever the 1% takes a shit on them.
I have 2 questions: first, hasn't it crossed anyone's mind that the republican thieves will try to steal this one too? The fix was in in 2000 and 2004 and look at the nightmare we got (and actually still have as Obama tries to clean up 8 years worth of republican mess and neglect). Second, can any of you guys clarify for me what Israel gives or does in return for all the vast amounts of money/aid this country doles out to them? Granted, I'm no happier than anyone else about "terrorists" but how is shelling out billions to Israel supposed to be the cure? I guess that was more than 2 questions but I really do hope someone can seriously give me some answers/explanation espeially about Israel as I certainly can't figure it out. I guess the justification for all the money poured down the Israeli rathole is "we must keep our alliance with Israel strong"--what the hell does any of it mean?!
The media might not report the gaffes, but the late night show hosts surely have. They are the best hope of associating his name with a joke.
What do you me r82? NBC or BBC?
[quote]Second, can any of you guys clarify for me what Israel gives or does in return for all the vast amounts of money/aid this country doles out to them?
It's not Israel per se. It's lobbyist here. They not all jewish, in fact a GREAT majority of them have ties to right wing fundamentalists here in the U.S. So if you want to question our ties to Israel, ask the right wing nut jobs. The FUNDIES are the one funding the lobbyist who get the US to fund the palestine apartheid.
The FUNDIES believe that in the end the Jews will be swept up by god. So if they keep them all in one place an happy they're doing their job.
All that money goes over there, robbing our social welfare - and in turn the ignorant white little racist welfare queens living in trailer homes blame the blacks and the jews. It's a win-win for the RightWing fundies.
Why does Romney walk like he's drying up? He looks so pidgeon toed and nervous-hardly presidential at all.
[quote]Romney in Shambles
Yet his poll numbers continue to improve.
Perhaps it is because the economic numbers this week were terrible - GDP growth of only 1.5% in the second quarter.
GDP has only grown 7.9% since the economy bottomed out. Typically, it would have grown by over 16% by this point in a recover. 8 points higher GDP and 8 points higher job growth.
I wonder if that matters more to voters than anything that happens in the UK
Anyway, it doesn't seem like Romney is in shambles 100 days before the election. Too bad the OP can't distinguish between what he wants and reality.
ARGH!!!!!!!!! I have to agree with Brits!!!! DAMN YOU MITT THE TWIT!!!!
R86 are you a Republicunt?
R88, the statement of facts on Datalounge often causes people to stick their fingers in their ears and scream "I can't hear you"
When did they take the Data out of Datalounge/
R81, Wish I could quote sources but I know Israel secretly helps American military interests, including sophisticated spying on Middle Eastern countries for potential disruptions in the flow of oil and terrorist threats. US Special Forces have received training from the Israeli Mossad as well. Did you see that Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks movie that portrayed covert arms transfers, as if it were the norm?
The Israeli connection for the radical religious right is deep; remember, it's part of their story that Christ will return throguh Jerusalem, and the fundies all want to make sure they get some of that. Add in that Israel is the one solid ally in the Middle East, and American support of Israel makes sense. And there are more Jews in the US than Israel.
Like people in the US really care what Britain thinks of Romney. Don't you realize that this is actually a point in Romney's favor? This will rally supporters around him even more, in the line of "who the hell do they think they are to make judgments about our politicians when they can't their own on act together."
[quote]Israel is the one solid ally in the Middle East
They really proved that with the USS Liberty incident. USS Liberty was attacked in international waters by Israeli forces on June 8, 1967, killing 34 Americans and wounding another 174.
Well put. What is win-win for the Christian right is lose-lose for Obama. If he gets reelected and Israel DOES hit Iran, as they will, the Democratic coalition will fall apart. You will have the Zionists and the peaceniks at each other's throat - you cannot satisfy both.
Very well put. Israel is not our ally in the Mideast; it is our master. Peres talks to Americans like people talk to dogs. I knew several of the Liberty's crew.
[quote]Yet his poll numbers continue to improve.
There's been some marginal improvement in Romney's national tracking numbers, but he's still behind in the majority of the swing states and well behind in the Electoral College.
As a matter of fact, Obama's probability of winning actually increased a couple of points this week according to Nate Silver. He currently gives Obama a 69% chance of winning in November, and projects him to win about 295-300 EV.
In particular, as I posted yesterday, Silver sees trouble for Romney in the latest Ohio numbers:
R83, it's started on American television late night...even Leno.
Romney's poll numbers have not improved. You are listening to GOP disinformation.
R97, as I said above, the person who said Romney's poll numbers have improved is right that his national tracking numbers have gone up over the past week, but Romney remains much farther behind when it comes to the swing states like Ohio and the Electoral College.
Romney's odds of winning have therefore gone down this week as Nate Silver explains at the link.
Those numbers can't include all the Olympic/ForeignFuckUp gaffes though.
And isn't a large part of the Romney poll number improvement include averaging in the Rasmussen daily poll which has been showing Romney with a 4-5 point advantage. Rasmussen did the same thing four years ago showing a McCain lead and then two weeks before the election changed their methodology and ended more closely to the actual results.
R100, yes, they are biased and inaccurate and garbage.
Yes, it looks like another Republicant poster crashes and burns.
So now he's insulting Palestenians, getting the captial of Israel wrong, promising to go to war with Iran, and generally destabilizing the entire Middle East.
WHAT. THE. FUCK.
I never thought I'd see someone else as incompetent as Dubbya.
[quote]Yet his poll numbers continue to improve.
Not really. All I'm seeing is the usual volatility in the polls, up in some and down in others. On the key measure of electoral college votes, his position remains unchanged.
[quote]Perhaps it is because the economic numbers this week were terrible - GDP growth of only 1.5% in the second quarter.
Yup, that continues to be a problem for Obama.
[quote]GDP has only grown 7.9% since the economy bottomed out. Typically, it would have grown by over 16% by this point in a recover. 8 points higher GDP and 8 points higher job growth.
Thank Republicans for that. Normally, the federal government would have stepped in and helped out state and local governments. The overall government spending in the aftermath of this recession has been significantly lower than in previous recessions, and the government layoffs have been far more severe. Under normal circumstances, with a non-obstructionist opposition, unemployment would have been a percentage point lower and GDP growth would have been higher.
[quote]I wonder if that matters more to voters than anything that happens in the UK
The UK debacle, in and of itself, doesn't matter much. What it does hurt is Romney's narrative that he's ready to lead. He's got no foreign policy experience and has made several clumsy missteps in prior months. This was supposed to be an easy, triumphal tour where he could look "presidential." Instead, he has come out of this looking like a doofus. The optics of this are terrible.
[quote]Anyway, it doesn't seem like Romney is in shambles 100 days before the election.
Actually, yes, it does. Given the economic circumstances, Romney should have at least a 5-point lead and Obama should be struggling. And a good campaign should be in control of the message and staying focused. Instead, Romney has been on the defensive for the past few weeks, is not in control of the narrative, and has embarrassed himself badly. This is indeed a campaign in shambles. It doesn't mean he's going to lose but it definitely doesn't look good.
[quote]Too bad the OP can't distinguish between what he wants and reality.
Um, you might want to rethink this statement.
[quote]Not really. All I'm seeing is the usual volatility in the polls, up in some and down in others. On the key measure of electoral college votes, his position remains unchanged.
The real concern is how many states are close enough for "volitility" combined with voter supression and vote-counting shennanigans to make a difference enough to swing the state's electoral votes from Obama to Romney?
God, he is such a chucklehead. That is the term for Romney. Chucklehead!
[quote]The real concern is how many states are close enough for "volitility" combined with voter supression and vote-counting shennanigans to make a difference enough to swing the state's electoral votes from Obama to Romney?
Actually, the real concern is will the Dems once again shrug their shoulders, say "oh well" and let it happen, or will they grow a pair and say "Oh fuck no, not this time"?
Let's hear it for the Rainbow Tour--it's been an incredible success! We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts!
Would Romnita win through? But the answer is yes!
And no, and yes, and no, and yes... and no.
r110 - is that real? It seems not to be, only because I haven't seen anything on the news in the States.
Don't get me wrong. I would love it to be real.
The video has been scrubbed from utube and vimeo but there are references here.
Video can probably be had on some Polish sites.
Quoting from the link:
What's more, the repeated foreign-policy misstatements and the missteps on this trip undermine one of Romney's main selling points. Supposedly, his experience as a chief executive and manager has helped prepare him to run a government better than the "community organizer" commander in chief he regularly attacks. But to date -- between these problems and the mind-boggling mismanagement of his financial disclosure -- there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that this is a well-run campaign. Quite the contrary: It's a mess, regularly producing bad headlines and failing to take advantage of the abysmal state of the economy -- a campaign gift that should, on its own, give him a solid lead in the polls right now.
