Mitt Romney Hits the Fan in London

What is Mitt thinking? Is he trying to hand the election to Obama? He went on a trip meant to build his foreign policy cred and spent the first two days stepping in Brit-pile after Brit-pile. Even his Olympic-quality triple somi backflip-flop couldn't save him.

It began with the "disconcerting" line.

Mitt Romney, kicking off his first foreign tour, hoping to show folks what a great leader he would be, gives a major interview to NBC in London where he says: "there are a few things that were disconcerting" about the London Olympic Games, starting Friday. "Private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials, that obviously is not something which is encouraging."


OK, we know Mitt has experience running an Olympics of his own, back in Salt Lake City in 2002, but, really? He said that? On TV?
