  •  Remarkable that Romney thinks (0+ / 0-)

    he would have to appeal to the basest racist instincts to lock up the GOP base, or whatever it is he thinks he's doing with this tack.  So far, he's leading in the polls of people believing he could do a better job with the economy than Obama, so why doesn't he just continue hammering on the president about the economy?

    I doubt this Anglo-Saxon claim will fly in England anyway.  The English have a better knowledge of their history than Americans have,  much better than American have of their own.  To most Americans, Anglo-Saxon just means "white."

    Romney better hope the British TV stations don't cover his stupid statements - they have a way of being quite cutting about such ignorance, especially from Americans.

    "In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
