Romney comments and security at the Olympics meant he was castigated in the press. However?

An unknown person managed to march in the Opening parade with the contingent from India. While "harmless", does this indicate a wider problem or is "being carried away" an acceptable excuse considering so many VIP's were present?

    The whole thing is utterly ridiculous.

    The way the left acts, you'd think Romney had given Queen Elizabeth an iPod loaded with his own speeches, given a toast while "God Save the Queen" was playing, or returned the Winston Churchill bust which has resided in the Oval Office since 9/11.

    Romney is running a great campaign. They don't have much to go after him about so they blow things out of proportion and make up stories where there is none. He was correct about security and even the British were concerned about it. I wonder if that has anything to do with so many seats being empty for various events.

    The British think 0bama is the worst President in our history. Why doesn't the press here in America pick up on that?

    It raises questions. My understanding, based on your link, is that she was likely part of the cast in some other part of the opening ceremony. Not that this justifies her being there, but it would explain how she got past security.

    If purely London could have had greater bribery and relax scandals that left the city bankrupt like Mittens pulled off in the Salt Lake city iciness Olympics... BTW, Mittens took a beneficiant, socialist, $six hundred million in taxpayer money for the Olympics. i ask your self how lots ended up in his off shore financial business enterprise bills? No ask your self he's hiding his tax returns.

    No one is debating if the fact of what he said is true or not. It's his blatant lack of tact and publicly embarrassing an ally that people don't like.

    A Statesman and person of competence would say that he had reservations in PRIVATE. Not in public.

    He picked the wrong forum in which to voice his concerns. He should have done this in a private meeting with either the mayor or the PM, not in the press.

    Mitt retracted his original statements, if you'll recall. So, which time was he right? When he said the London games were not ready, or when he said they were?

    Romney did not behave like a guest and neither as a leader. British have manners and now they laugh at us all. They are calling him the tweet and the nowhere man.
