I'm following this trip with great interest. There should be ample opportunity for equally clueless gaffes in Poland, too. Grin

e: Also, "liberal Piers Morgan". *dies*

This is the country that fell in love with the Obamas on their first official visit, yes? Smiley Was it not Winifield or someone else who said Romney should just sit tight overseas for a few months and come back to America for his electoral victory? I rather agree with that, now. Love it when Romney is proved to be the elitist, clueless, blundering buffoon that he really is.

I'm surprised, I did think he would be able smurf a visit to Europe this bad, while most Europeans don't like Republicans, on paper and how he has been covered in the European media, he come across rather faceless and inoffensive. He really had to go out of his way, to fail this badly, the only saving grace is that he going to visit non-English speaking countries now, and he can hope that as such American media ignore whatever he say there.

Yes, I'm aware of the phone hacking scandal, and am aware of Morgan's alleged involvement in it. Am I following it? Not in particular. But what does his listening to Paul McCartney's phone messages have to do with his ideology? Links or anything pointing to Morgan's right-wing bias would be great.

Newsmax is an unreliable source. It's a right wing hack site with no credibility. That matters.

The sad thing is that Romney's not even remotely awkward in person when he can speak without cameras. He was incredibly charming one-on-one when I met him eight years ago.

That said, he's always terrible when it comes to large groups. I think the cameras and reporters get to him.

Mr Moderate at 54/10 is a total joke, he is a horror.

I think it is very possible that Vladimir Putin could be the Antichrist.  That is nothing more than an educated guess on my part.

OK so it was a silly comment but this so called gaffe is not mentioned on CNN, Yahoo, or MSNBC front pages. You can barely find it on thier politics page. MSNBC actually gives pro-Romney coverage of the issue. This is non-issue, does not fit into a campaign narrative, and will be over tomorrow. Serious non issue. He told the truth but probably should not have. The British papers love it but no one gives a care on this side of the atlantic.

I am glad this is trending in the UK among at the guardian, while "you didn't build that" is still tending EVERY DAY in the US for the last two weeks.

Being the left of Michele Bachmann makes you a liberal now? these are some pretty strong standards in conservative america that people have to aspire too.

oh whatever, he's not liberal. And nor does right/left matter in this case. Romney has trampled over British pride on the eve of their greatest international showcase in a long time.

Or maybe his secret role is to boost other conservative politicians, because Cameron and Johnson are coming out very well in this...

No one cares. Romneys relationship with the British media is the last thing on swing voters's minds. This is a joke. No one cared when Obama when overseas 4 years ago.  McCain mocked the crap out of him and we all saw how that turned out.

McCain actually got decent mileage out of the world celebrity ridiculousness. Still, you're right, no one is going to vote based on England's opinion of Mitt Romney.

Please don't insult the man by spelling his name incorrectly. As is now quite well known, there is actually an 'o' where you have wrongly typed a 'g' and an 'a'.

Quite so. That is why, as you may have noticed, we are all laughing. This is hilarious stuff. It is also further proof that Romney really is the American President from TV drama serials made in countries that aren't America.
