UK: Romney's disastrous day

Daily Mail

'Devoid of charm, offensive and a wazzock': Romney's disastrous day in London after saying he didn't know if Olympics would be a success
By Hugo Gye

Mitt Romney may not be looking for votes on his trip to London for the start of the Olympics this week, but he is certainly hoping to be taken seriously.

Having attacked Barack Obama's foreign policy record, the GOP presidential hopeful will have been keen to establish his credentials as a foreign policy leader.

However, after a series of gaffes, Mr Romney has been on the sharp end of a series of tongue-lashings from the press, government officials and even leading politicians.

The Republican's most damaging blunder came when he questioned whether his hosts would be able to make a success of the Games, saying: 'It's hard to know just how well it will turn out.'
