Now "Mittens" has some new nicknames from his British visit. He's "Mitt the Twit" or my favourite, from Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson, "The American Borat."
Romney managed to best some of George W. Bush’s best “hey, did I do that?” moments during his visit when he first dissed the country’s Olympic preparations in an interview. He continued, doubting the country could pull together a proper Olympic brouhaha, and said the people might not “come together” to celebrate the games.
Then he revealed a supposedly secret meeting with Britain’s intelligence agency MI6 to press, further being a general doofus. Amid all the scrutiny, it came to light that Romney cast Britain in an unflattering light in his book No Apology: The Case for American Greatness – a bit of a riff on Mittens’ continued and erroneous assertion that the current POTUS likes to spend his free time apologizing for America in all corners of the globe, a fib that appeals to a certain segment of voters.
In the book, Romney sneers of England:
“England [sic] is just a small island. Its roads and houses are small. With few exceptions, it doesn’t make things that people in the rest of the world want to buy. And if it hadn’t been separated from the continent by water, it almost certainly would have been lost to Hitler’s ambitions. Yet only two lifetimes ago, Britain ruled the largest and wealthiest empire in the history of humankind. Britain controlled a quarter of the earth’s land and a quarter of the earth’s population.”Clarkson's final tweet sort of said it all - "Mitt Romney. Go fuck yourself. We are better than you."
