The U.K. on Romney: What a Plonker

Romney's attempt to pander to Anglo-Saxon sensibilities is going down in a way that may make it one of the greatest campaign fails in memory.  As recently as just a couple days ago, Romney's foreign trip was billed as a chance for him to increase his stature as a candidate.  Now he is in full damage control mode and the only goal is to keep his myriad gaffes from completely sinking his candidacy. 

Romney you Plonker

"Romney you Plonker!"

Here are some of the comments made by readers of London's Guardian newspaper.  Enjoy.

      His android brain chip is malfunctioning again.

      Wow! He actually said disconcerting?

      That's … disconcerting. Oh no. Now I've said it.

      What a plonker.

      Also, he shouldn't have let Bain Capital outsource the people who make his brain chips.

      Considering the population in the US, I think it's fair to say that he will get millions of votes.

      A perfect illustration of how, even though he has vast resources of some very wealthy people behind him, he' s still trailing in the polls.

      Even dedicated Republicans are shaking their heads in both dimay and amusement over this disgraceful faux pas!! It gives new meaning to misplaced arrogance and proves once again that money and dignity don't necessarily equate. Do we reeeeeally see him as a well-appointed representative of America? Seriously???????

The man is obscene.

On behalf of all decent Americans, I apologize to the rest of the planet he's even in the running for the presidency.

           No offence mate but running the Summer Olympics is in a completely different ball park to running the Winter Olympics

      Congratulations, Mitt. You just set a new world record. Too bad the "flip-flop" isn't being contested in these games.


      26 July 2012 7:53PM

      So you Brits have met the Mittastrophe. I'm sorry about his bad manners, but you need not let him upset you; he is destined to be but a footnote in history.

      I second the motion. I wish I could say this would derail his candidacy but I fear it won't. An astonishing lack of judgment, taste and respect for people from other countries doesn't seem to disqualify you.
