Even abroad, Mitt Romney sticks his foot in his mouth.
While visiting London just ahead of the Olympics (opening Friday), Romney insulted his hosts by saying in an NBC interview that some aspects of the preparation for the Games were "disconcerting. … The story about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the imigration and customs officials, that is not something that is encouraging."
Romney's remarks prompted a strong backlash by British Prime Minister David Cameron, who also sideswiped the entire state of Utah in the process.
"We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world," Cameron said, according to The Washington Post. "Of course it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere."
