"Governor Romney arrived, made a few suggestions, took the heat for his honesty and intelligence, just like when he wrote the op-ed newspaper column that rescued General Motors, and the results of his visit are now obvious."

Everyone has vacation disaster stories. Passports get lost. People miss planes. Montezuma has his revenge. But none of this comes close to the series of unfortunate events that was Mitt Romney's trip to London.

This week, Mitt Romney made his first trip abroad as the presumptive GOP nominee, visiting London and kicking things off by questioning the city's preparation for the Olympics. Romney's remarks were a field day for the British press, spawned the Twitter hashtag #romneyshambles, and elicited rebukes from David Cameron ("it's easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere") and London Mayor Boris Johnson, who jabbed back at "a guy called Mitt Romney." On the upside, Romney managed to unite what had been a very divided country. Meanwhile, on this side of the pond, HuffPost selected eight community reporters to cover the Democratic and Republican National Conventions as part of our OffTheBus "Cover the Conventions" contest. We will use their insight and outsiders' perspective to help get beyond the horse-race aspect of election coverage when it comes to the ultimate Olympic event for politics fans -- the November elections.

Mitt's World

Mitt should stay home and talk about what a great businessman he once was and how that qualifies him to be commander-in-chief. His world bears no resemblance to the one that he would confront were he in the Oval Office.

Romney's Foreign Policy Attacks on Obama Live in a Land Without Facts

Mitchell Bard | Posted 09.25.2012 | Politics
Mitchell Bard

As Romney stumbles his way through London after attacking the president's foreign policy record, he clearly has left the world of facts and truth and entered a never-never land of political accusations to pander to his base. It's easy for Romney to jump up and down and prattle on about how the president has to stand up to bad guys, but, these matters are complex and nuanced. Watching Romney's faux tough guy hysterics becomes even more entertaining when you find out that key members of his foreign policy team were instrumental in urging the U.S. to invade Iraq. So the guy oversimplifying complicated problems, backed by a team that was colossally wrong and ushered us into one of the greatest foreign policy blunders in history, is criticizing a president whose record is impressive even to many conservatives. You can't make this stuff up!
