Mitt Romney "Disses" the Brits On Olympic Security!

By Stephanie Devereaux -- In a surprising act of evolving political foundering, Mitt Romney went international with his political "tone-deafness" by ostentatiously flying to Great Britain, then blasting the British for what was in his opinion the inadequate and perhaps poorly managed security apparatus for the 2012 Olympics. .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       . The British, not surprisingly,  blasted Romney right back -- saying that in remote places of diminutive populations ( like Utah perhaps) security requirements may have been a little easier to put in place and a little simpler to manage -- but that to hold the Olympics in and around London is a little bit different. .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       . What is disturbing about this is not that Mr. Romney shoots off his mouth without thinking, which he inevitably does in most cases anyway -- or that he displays an alarming tone-deafness -- not only domestically but internationally as well -- but the sad fact that he can't even go to a  country that  is one of our biggest friends, supporters and world allies -- on what is for all intents and purposes a light weight public relations gimmick  trying to gain some modicum of political advantage (or at least notoriety) in this election year from the 2012 Olympics -- just because he ran the Olympics several years ago in Utah  -- and he can't even pull that off -- without insulting the host country of the Olympics, Great Britain,  in the process. With skills like these -- I can hardly wait until he sits down with representatives from Russia, Iran, and North Korea -- and eagerly anticipate what international crises result from his carelessness and tone-deafness in those meetings.  Not what most of us Americans are looking for in a President, I would venture to say.
