The hard fact remains: Mitt is a rock star among all people who have ever run the Olympics. They ought to listen to him, just as they listened to Peter Ueberroth.

He was too honest, and somewhat rude. It’s like going to someone’s new house and finding fault with it.

Maybe so but it was an unecessary political gaffe. He should have spoken like s statesman and said he assumes all the necessary preparations have been made and the event will be a success etc etc That is all he had to say. He is running for President not Olympics inspector. Actually I was susrprised by a gaffe like this from such a slick used car salesman.

“The overlooked fact is that Romney actually knows how to run an Olympics. “

The Mitt Plan to Fix the Olympics:

1. Eliminate mormon insider corruption
2. Set record for Federal funds
3. Set a record for earmarks
4. Make sure the boy scouts don’t wear uniforms

You seem to like Myth’s euphemisms.

FEES ==> really means taxes

FIX ===> really means taxes

RomneyCARE ===> government control of medicine
and death panels run by government, but not FOR
government people (or their staff or Moslems or Amish)
who destroyed American medicine, in the first place.

Prime Minister David Cameron, who managed to hurl an insult at Romney's hometown as a place "in the middle of nowhere."

The insult was to Salt Lake City, which if you've ever driven there (from any direction) is indeed pretty much "in the middle of nowhere."

However, not only is this not Romney's hometown, AFAIK he has never lived there.

Libs can’t comprehend facts. Even if Great Britain.

As everyone on this forum knows I am not a Romney fan at all, but he is right that these Olympics are not well prepared. They are going to lose their shirts. I didn't even know when or where the Olympics were going to be or when they were going to start until I started seeing threads on FR on the politically correct opening ceremonies.

I predict a major financial disaster for England and London and NBC.

Somebody let me know when they are over. I won't' be watching them.

Much ado about nothing. Romney apparently spoke a bit too honestly but hardly insulted anyone, much less, the entire U.K. The reaction in the leftmedia is way overwrought and transparently seeking to hurt Romney’s campaign. His experience with the 2000 Olympics gave him some credibility but frankly, he should have just said something innocuous and positive. However, I seriously doubt that, as much as some hope that it does, this minor gaffe will do any damage to his election bid. It’s not like he insulted entrepreneurs or anything.
