Mitt Romney Dissed by David Cameron After Critisizing London Olympics
Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney began a European tour this week in order to display his foreign policy credentials. The trip began on a bad note following comments by a Romney Campaign staffer that Barack Obama doesn’t understand Anglo-saxons.
Now, Romney decided to weigh in on the preparations for the London Olympics.
The dustup began Wednesday, as Romney, who ran the 2002 Salt Lake City games, said there were “disconcerting” signs in the days before this year’s games.
“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,” he told NBC News.
He basically called out London and the UK government for not running the Olympics as well as he did in 2002. Unfortunately for Romney, UK Prime Minister David Cameron shut Romney down.
“We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course, it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere,” he (Cameron) said
This is a damning burn for Romney, but his fail also gives us the chance to analyze Romney’s Olympics claim.
Mitt Romney did not run the Olympics. Mitt Romney ran the Winter Olympics. This is no disrespect to Picaboo Street or the Jamaican bobsled team, but there are stark differences between the Olympics and the Winter Olympics. For starters, nobody besides Mitt Romney thinks “Winter Olympics” when someone says “Olympics”.
THINGS THAT ARE LIKE SAYING “OLYMPICS” BUT MEANING “WINTER OLYMPICS”
“I’m going to Disneyland!” - obviously not Euro Disneyland
“Not sure who I will vote for for President” - not homeowners association president
“I love old school Nintendo!” - not talking about Nintendo 64
“Getting laid tonight!” - not a person getting picked up, then set down else
“Dude, you got so smashed last night” - not someone speaking to his friend who is in an intensive care unit because he got ran over by a train but narrowly survived.
