After some snarky retorts from Brits clearly bemused that a major American political party would nominate such a git, Romney was forced to do the most horrible thing Pres. Barack Obama has (supposedly) ever done: apologize. Oh well, yet another anti-Obama GOP talking point (like the TelePrompter nonsense) bites the dust.
But of course, this sort of thing is par for the course for Romney. Meeting with NASCAR fans at Daytona he decided to "interact" with them by insulting their ponchos. When some sweet ladies decided to lay out a spread of their fancy local bakery's wares, he insulted them by "joking" that they looked like they came from 7-11. When a classmate showed up with hair that wasn't the right height, he ... you get the picture.
It's pretty well established at this point that Mitt Romney is an asshole. He cannot interact with anyone without being an utter dick. Remember, his own high school friends, which the Romney campaign itself suggested the press talk to, sold him out.
The only problem is that he's now bringing his horror roadshow to international locales. And while the Brits can laugh him off with a dismissive snort (those guys know how to do humor), let's brace ourselves for when he gets to Israel. Insults in that part of the world start wars.
