I am not a baby. I am veteran of a thousand psychic wars - well campaigns, anyhow. I know how little dumb things can become huge awful things, when the press is against you. The warning came with yesterday's ridiculous "Anglo-Saxon" nonsense. He should have just smiled and said how he can't wait to see the Olympics and that he wants it to be a huge success. No nuance. NOTHING that the evil scum at the Guardian, BBC and DNC can use against him.
If you are a veteran of a 1000 whatever campaigns, then you should know not to panic everytime someone gets their panties in a wad. I am reacting in general to the many Freepers who will always show up to immediately panic the moment a republican is criticized for something they said.
I read Romney’s quote and didn’t find in it any criticism of the London preparations. Note they say he “questioned” whether they are ready. The media and other politicians may be responsible for creating a controversey.
The wildly exaggerated reactions to the Chik Fil A owner’s comments are another example, though in that case Freepers did not panic.
