Posted on 07/27/2012 7:02:21 PM PDT by Charles Henrickson
The London Olympics have now begun. And for the judges scoring in DUmmieland, the biggest loser so far has been Mitt Romney. The DUmp is replete with thread after thread ridiculing the Ugly Rethuglican for his series of gaffes insulting and offending the Brits. And they think this is the biggest deal since the War of 1812.
What the DUmmies don't realize is that a) these supposed "gaffes" are way overblown, just a case of mittpicking, much ado about nothing, b) almost no one in America knows or cares what he said, and c) most normal Americans don't care what the socialist Euroweenies think of us.
So here is the biggest, most horriblest "gaffe" that Romney committed. In an interview for American TV, Brian Williams of NBC asked Romney--who has successfully run an Olympics--this question: "In the short time you've been here in London, do they look ready for the Olympics to your experienced eye?" Now keep in mind, the Brits themselves have expressed some concerns about the preparations, the security, etc. So here is Romney's reply: "You know, it's hard to know just how well it will turn out. There are a few things that were disconcerting, the stories about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials. That obviously is not something which is encouraging."
SHOCKING! HORRIBLE! THE MOTHER OF ALL GAFFES! UNFORGIVABLE! THIS WILL COST HIM THE ELECTION FOR SURE!!!
Or maybe not.
We'll sample from a bunch of the dozens of threads now dominating DUmmieland, beginning with this THREAD,"#RomneyShambles now trending on Twitter."
So let us now light the Comedic Torch and LET THE GAMES BEGIN, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest corrsepondent, Charles Henrickson, hoping Romney will stay on dressage, is in the [brackets]:

[#DUmmieScramble now venting on Mittster]
The mayor of London is apparently making fun of Mitt Romney right now. . . . Can this get any worse for Romney?
[I predict Obama will CARRY London in a landslide!]
"There's guy called Mitt Romney who wants to know if we are ready. Are we ready? Yes we are!" London Mayor Boris Johnson to a raucous crowd in London's Hyde Park after the arrival of the Olympic flame.
[OUCH! Boris has cut Mitt to the quick! I'm sure Boris's barb will cost Romney the election!]
Mitt the twit!
[Pick the nit!]
His trip is an unmitigated disaster so far.
Mittens didn't go to the UK to get votes. He went there to get money. He will call the trip a success--and by his standards, it will be a success. He will get the cash. The vast majority in the United States won't hear what Mittens did in the UK. The vast majority won't care what Mittens did in the UK.
[DUmmie RickFromMN, you have just won the Gold Kewpie Doll in the Mental Clarity Hurdles! Congratulations! We will now play the Minnesota national anthem. . . .]
BWHAHAHAHA: Daily Mail Political Editor James Chapman - WORSE THAN SARAH PALIN TOTAL CAR CRASH
[BWHAHAHAHA: Nobody in America cares what Daily Mail Political Editor James Chapman thinks!]
The comparisons with Romney's trip to Europe and Obama's visit at almost exactly the same stage in the electoral cycle four years ago are almost too embarrassing to mention. Obama wooed a quarter of a million people in Berlin while Romney was mocked by the British prime minister.
["CBS News is now prepared to call Europe for Obama! Let me repeat: CBS News is now calling Europe for Obama! All--how many electoral votes does Europe get again? Well, anyhow, they all go to Obama. . . ."]
Mitt Romney is our Mr. Bean.
[He's our Mr. Bain.]
Am I the ONLY one who thinks Romney is *deliberately* making gaffes overseas to appeal to the Republican/Teabagger base? . . . While we sane people are laughing at Mitt Romney, the nationalists/Teabagger brigade absolutely LOVE the fact that Mitt's giving it to those SOCIALISTS!!
[I don't know about *deliberately* making gaffes, and they're not much as far as "gaffes" go--they're certainly not in Biden's class--but you are on to something: Most Americans don't care what the socialist Euroweenies think.]
Mitt has turned the "Ugly American" into an art form.
[He's the Ugly Rethuglican.]
blowback from the Brits means nothing-- they don't vote here and hardly anyone who does will remember in November. . . .
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Do you remember Obama's speech as candidate in Berlin? Throngs of adoring people chanting his name. . . .
[And Obama carries BERLIN!!]
I just peeked into freeperville - and they are swooning with delight.
[Lousy Freeper Swoonbats!]
Let's face it: Romney went all "Pip, Pip, Tally-ho!" on the UK and they ain't buyin' it.
[Let's face it: Obama is going all "Dip, Dip, Rally-no!" on the US and we ain't buyin' it.]
Mitt put the "Dip" in "Diplomacy"
[Barry put the "Dip" in "Economy."]
he'll pull a "Let them eat cake." in France.
[At least it won't be a "Let them eat peas" in America.]
In spite of his every screw up, lie and inability to be anything close to a human being...How many voters will pick Romney merely because he's the rich white guy?
It's more about Obama being a black man than Mitt being white. By all reasonable standards of fact, abilities, likability,successes, and morality Obama should be at least 30 points ahead of Mitt. . . .
["Successes"? "SUCCESSES"?? Your guy Obama is going for the gold medal in the Debtathlon! He's going for the gold in Barack & Failed!]
Schadenfreude is a delicious thing.
[That's "Freudenschade" to you DUmmies! Freudenschade, baby! Check back with me on that in November!]
"I now declare this DUFU OPEN!"
Those idiotic commies
Don’t care. What i saw tonite was awful pretentious, even for Lamestream Tee Vee.
Ich bin ein Buttkisser
Wow, that’s all they’ve got?
I don’t do drugs. How is what Romney said considered a “gaffe”? They asked him a question and he gave them an honest answer. Only a meth head would thing that was a “gaffe”. A “gaffe” is when you say that you’ve visited all 57 states. What Romney said might have been politically incorrect for the potheads but it wasn’t a “gaffe”.
A gaffe is when you say that youve visited all 57 states.
Or Navy “Corpse” man. How about reading the wrong speech on a telepromptor and thanking “the American President.” Add all that to giving the Queen (nearly deaf) an MP3 player. To add insult to injury it was loaded with his speeches. He also gave another British official a set of DVDs in U.S. format.
Don’t get me started on Biden.
But the U.S. media only report errors made by Republicans. They wait until after the primaries to report on the RINOs.
Well, Romney spoke the truth, from his background with the Utah Olympics. If the Brits don’t want to listen, or are thin-skinned, then that’s their problem. I love it when the DUmmies get all a-twitter with such nonsense. It fits them to a “T”.
Lets see, saying something correct is a gaff? What planet are DU from?
Mild comments or not, he is a guest here and should respect his hosts. It came across as a touch rude and ill-mannered.
If he any doubts, keep em private, and keep his trap shut.
Id be embarrassed if Cameron questioned American abilities in the US just before it held an Olympics.
The throngs were there to see reggae artist Patrice and rock band Reamonn.
They are really hating on Costas for his glowing remarks about Romney saving the 2002 Olympics.
You know, all Romney had to do was to bring a CD or an IPod of rickety old hits, perhaps forgetting the Region Code so it couldn’t be played on Euro players, or maybe he should have proposed a toast to the Queen before they played “My country, ‘Tis of Thee”...oops, I meant “God Save the Queen” in direct violation of protocol.
Yeppers, those would have been minor thingees, not worth ripping up a sound fart over. But dare to criticize the way Olympic Security has been handled, just because he had actually ORGANIZED an Olympics in the past, well...tsk tsk. So what if 99% of the rest of the country is absolutely pissed at the security! Call it a major gaffe... yeah, THAT’S the ticket!!
They always forget that there was a huge rock show and Barry Hussein was kind of invited for the before thing.
They weren’t there for him but oh... why let facts get in the way of their euphoria over their hope and change memories.
These days Bath House Barry couldn’t fill a Chik-Fil-A with people that weren’t being paid, trucked in, bussed in or given the day off whatever government job they fill a chair in to go.
1. Dumb question that nobody cares about. The Olympics have started, ready or not.
2. Because of question #1, this has all the earmarks of a setup question.
3. Hoopla proves #2
4. Was the first Wookie asked the same question?
5. BTW: Did we dip the colors in opening ceremony?
I hadn’t heard about Costas’ remarks. And judging by what I’m reading about Brits not being too warm on the games, I suspect this is mostly jealousy.
Pretty thin skinned, if you ask me. I suspect it’s jealousy over his handling of the 2002 Olympics more than anything. From what I’ve read, the Brits aren’t too keen about the games.
Rude? Ill-mannered? Come on. What would be rude or ill-mannered is:
Nigel Farage and the UKIP are the only sane people left in the UK.
Most leftwing agenda opening ceremonies ever.
DUmmies are all for speaking truth to power...except when you really do speak the TRUTH.
Yup! They know the Bamster is in big re-election trouble so they grasp at any perceived "gaffe" by Romney like it is some really big deal in the vain hope it will somehow change the electoral equation. A lot of times you can spot such threads since they frequently have "OMG!" in the title.
Yeah. So much worse than the horrible 1.5% second quarter growth rate that affects all Americans.
After November DUmmies will pull a "Let them snort coke."
Most leftwing agenda opening ceremonies ever.
That it was. Even some of the Brits, the relatively conservative ones, did not like all the left-wing crap. The tribute to the NHS had to be the topper. But also the "Britian is now a multicultural PC paradise" sketch was a bit much. And the whole thing was too long.
Some of the ceremony I did like, especially James Bond and the Queen, and Mr. Bean, who always makes me laugh.
Any DU threads in particular? Links?
Also, I caught most of the opening ceremony but not all. Was there any mention of Romney's supposed "gaffes" and how this was so terrible? I didn't hear any.
Spot on, brother.
When the camera landed on Romney, Costas drooled:
"There's Mitt Romney, here as part of his world tour. No matter your political leanings, he deserves credit for stepping in and rescuing the 2000 Olympics."
I almost put my fist through my TV at that point.
My bestest response?
What was Obamugabe’s response when the IOC and the world asked him: “Is Chicago ready for the 2016 Olympics?”
Olympic FAIL! HAhahahahaha.
The dip in diplomacy.... not bad for a retard.
