Mitt Romney: the not-quite-ready for prime time presidential candidate

Apparently Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney doesn’t know how to keep his big mouth shut and not spill secrets.

Mitt Romney made another gaffe on his London trip Thursday by acknowledging he met with the head of Britain’s MI6 intelligence agency, according to reports.

Romney’s meeting with MI6 head Sir John Sawers was not on the Republican’s public schedule — and Romney made a major blunder by revealing it, CBS News and The Guardian reported.

In related news, Romney also found himself in hot water with the British press – and the British people – after he questioned whether Britain is ready for the Summer Olympic Games.

The fact that Mitt Romney didn’t understand that flapping his gums about a meeting with MI6 is not appropriate, coupled with his stunning lack of tact regarding a source of great pride for Britons, just underscores Romney’s stunning lack of foreign policy expertise and experience.

  1. When you’re protected and instructed all your life by a brigade of fascist enthusiasts, it alters your brain patterns. I’ve seen it happen to friends and to very smart people I admired.

    BTW: Electronic tracking of implanted devices should NOT be done on a national level. Impossible to get to the patient in time. I’ve advocated for regional shared medical repositories for decades now to simplify adressing emergency concerns and controlling medical prescriptions. Note: your comments don’t work on the tin foil blog.

  2. On day three of his overseas tour, Mitt Romney woke up to unfriendly headlines from the British media, who continue to trash him for telling NBC News that he found preparations for the Olympics here “disconcerting.”
    “Mitt the Twit,” declared The Sun tabloid, condemning Romney as a “wannabe president.”
    The Independent headlined their take on Romney’s trip, “Romneyshambles”—accusing him of not only committing a diplomatic gaffe but later “the cardinal sin of U.S. politics, flip-flopping” on his criticism.
    The Daily Telegraph suggested Romney’s “Olympic gaffe” had overshadowed his trip to London.
    Meanwhile, the conservative Daily Mail slammed Romney as “devoid of charm, offensive and a wazzock.”
    Romney’s comments led newscasts on both Sky News and the BBC on Thursday night and early Friday morning, just hours ahead of the Olympic opening ceremonies here.
    “Is this guy really prepared to be president?” one Sky News reporter asked in his Thursday night report about Romney’s day in London. The reporter trashed the GOP candidate’s comments as “just daft.”

    Mitt The Twit is kinda catchy.
