Mitt Romney’s Trip To London Is A Total Disaster, And Here Are The Headlines To Prove It

via Business Insider:

 

Mitt Romney’s day in London didn’t go so well.

His comment to Brian Williams last night about how preparations for the London Olympics have been “disconcerting” did not go over well with his British hosts, who have been slamming Romney all day in the press and in front of thousands of U.K. citizens.

First, British Prime Minister David Cameron took a shot at Romney’s time running the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City, saying that “it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.” Then, London’s flamboyant Mayor Boris Johnson publicly called out Romney during a Olympics kickoff rally before 60,000 people in Hyde Park.

“There’s a guy called Mitt Romney who wants to know whether we are ready. Are we ready?” Johnson yelled to the crowd, which roared in approval.

The British press did its part to hammer Romney, too. Here’s a roundup of the awful headlines.
