Thursday, July 26, 2012 Mitt Romney's Olympic blunder stuns No 10 and hands gift to Obama

Mittens saw "disconcerting" signs about the preparations for the London Games

"Mitt Romney handed Barack Obama a priceless gift for the US presidential election campaign when the presumptive Republican nominee blundered on his first diplomatic outing by questioning whether London was capable of staging a successful Olympic Games.
In a move that astonished Downing Street, hours before it laid on a special reception for Romney at No 10 he told NBC there were "disconcerting" signs about the preparations for the Games.
One senior Whitehall source said: "What a total shocker. We are speechless."
David Cameron wasted no time in slapping down Romney hours after his remarks were broadcast. On a visit to the Olympic Park, the prime minister said: 'We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course it's easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.'"
Rightardia has pointed on many occasions that the skills for a CEO and a political leader are different. In Mittens first diplomatic venture abroad, he manages to insult the US's biggest ally!
