Mitt Romney has shipped lots of criticism about his various comments in London while there for the Olympics. Democrats have tried to portray him as Sarah Palinesque in his inability to articulate and get basic facts wrong, but when you examine what he said was it all that bad? Firstly his comments on British preparations for the Olympics were spot on. He was asked about Britain’s preparations for the Olympics and instead of waffling about how great they were, he pointed up some concerns. "There are a few things that were disconcerting," Romney said. "The stories about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials – that obviously is not something which is encouraging." What could be wrong with that? A politician tells the truth and he was, of course, immediately slammed for it.Of course, the main reason that Romney was attacked is that he is a Republican. If a Democrat like Obama had said the same things he would have been praised for his keen intelligence.
