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.

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.

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.

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.

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]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.

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.

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.

[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.

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.

Romney's British implosion is one of my favorite stories from the past year. I hope he never forgets what a jackass he was.

It was one of many screw-ups, but it was pretty minor compared to most of the others like the 47% video.
