The NY Daily News reports that Mitt Romney is his usual flip-floppy, backpedaling self over in London. When he arrived in London, Mitt was asked if they were ready for the Olympics:
“You know, it’s hard to know just how well it will turn out. There are a few things that were disconcerting, 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.” — Mitt Romney, after arriving Wednesday night in London.
WHOOPS! Reprogam! Disc read error! Mitt’s comments were splashed all around jolly old England and not many were impressed (welcome to OUR nightmare). And despite his shared Anglo Saxon heritage with the people there, the Romneybot handlers were forced to do a system restart Thursday morning:
“My experience with regards to the Olympics is it is impossible for absolutely no mistakes to occur. Of course there will be errors from time to time, but those are all overshadowed by the extraordinary demonstrations of courage, character and determination by the athletes. And as soon as the sporting events begin, we all forget the organizers and focus on the athletes.” — Mitt Romney, BACKPEDALING HARD, Thursday morning during a joint appearance at Parliament with Labor leader Ed Miliband.
That’s so Romney! Fair warning London: by tomorrow he’ll deny having ever criticized you in the first place.
