I’ll pass on this poll because the question is based upon a fantasy. Willard implied no such thing.

All I heard Mittens say was what the MSM were reporting the day before. I guess he shouldn't have smarted off to Brian Williams.

Correct. This is the MSM bailing out Obama with an invented gaffe. Even the intellectual stopped clock - Krauthammer - got in on the act.

Of course he is. Their press has been all over the security problems, why can't Romney make a remark?

There's one photo with him and PM Cameron, seated in matching chairs by a fireplace and it just looks "right."

Maybe we'll see such a scene repeated in the White House in the next four years.

I read in an article on Fox Sports yesterday that all of the dorm rooms where the brit athletes are staying are air conditioned while the rest of the dorms are not air conditioned.

I've read his remarks and that statement is not at all what the man said. I read the comments as saying he understands first hand how difficult it is to organize an Olympics and that the problems the British organizers have had, while "disconcerting", will be overcome. Compared to how the problems are being treated in the (admittedly vicious) British press and by the opposition in Parliament his comments were mild and not really critical.

Their Prime Minister went off the deep end in his reaction. That male bonding over a pair of hot dogs he had at a basketball game with Obama must have left a deep impression on his psyche. If Freud were alive he would probably see some symbolism there. It certainly makes me suspect the PM got a lot of pleasure out of his boyhood days in an all male Public School.

“A Brit says: Sorry, but that’s absolute crap.”

Just conveying what I read. However, I wouldn’t put it past you brits. :-)

Additionally, why should one believe you as opposed to the MSM? Do you believe that your information is more reliable than theirs? Why would one be inclined to believe an anonymous poster on a web forum?

No, you’re right. The fact that *no source of information in the world* - since when is Fox part of the MSM, BTW??? - that I could find said the same thing means absolutely nothing, Anonymous Poster on a Web Forum.

No comments from this any of the participating countries - because of course the US, Aussies, French, Germans etc. etc. etc. contingents would all keep quiet if this was the case - but, yes, of course, you’re right.

Only Team GB had aircon. None of the other 203 countries’ athletes. Right.

Opinion:

Fox News/Sports IS a part of the MSM. I find them to be just as left-wing as ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post, The New York Times, et al. Fox was obviously behind Romney and the GOP-e, who is obviously a liberal or at the very best, a totally unprincipled person who will wet his finger, hold it in the air then go with the flow. Fox was behind McCain, who is a treasonous RINO. Again, that’s just my opinion.

I didn’t say that I was right about anything. I was merely reporting what I had read on one of the MSM sites. :-)

If you were offended by my comment about “I wouldn’t put it past you brits”, it’s just that I have known and worked with many. :-)

My comment about “believing someone who says something on a web forum”: That is a multi-edged sword. In other words, why believe me, you, the MSM or, for that matter, anyone else online? LOL

Calm down.

That doesn't even pass the smell test.

Michael Phelps: "We walked in and tried to crank the thermostat down, but nothing was happening all day and they told us in a meeting that we have no air conditioning. ... so we have some air circulating but everybody has to deal with it."

Might be a service issue, instead of omission of AC units in all other countries' rooms.

I just passed on information that I had read on Fox Sports. It is the decision of each reader to make up his/her mind about the validity of the information. :-)
