Why is Mitt Romney doing more harm than good on his tour of Europe?

    Why is Mitt Romney doing more harm than good on his tour of Europe?

    Mitt Romney clearly is incapable of dealing with foreign relations. He is making us ask if America can afford to let him do more damage when he lands in Israel and Poland.

    The skills of some politicians are not always their best attributes.

    Mitt Romney has hid his life in the United States answering sheltering questions or no reply at all. when he visits other countries they aren't looking for a business man but a leader of many. He is being who he is. Now the pressing question is why doesn't America see him as a unqualified leader too?

      They do, he is the straw man to make it look like an actual election.

      America does not have elections: what we get to cast is an opinion on which of the evil twins gets appointed to the White House. We also get to wager our opinions on who the powers that be should appoint to the Senate and Congress.

    Mormons have a saying, "When the leaders have spoken, the thinking has been done." Mitt, therefore, doesn't think...he reacts to what the Council of 50 and the President of the Mormon church tells him to do.

    Romney flip-flops on many issues because he comes from a cult that also flip-flops on many issues. When you build your foundation on sand, as the LDS church has done...expect to shift positions often.

    As has been said, "If you don't stand for something...you will fall for anything", and this pretty well sums up Mitt Romney and the fellowship of cult followers.

    Just like all Mormons, behind the positive public relations spin, the white shirt and bold ties...there is nothing of substance. He is just a brainwashed, hollow puppet - just like the lot of them.

      It is also important to know that Mormons don't like anybody but Mormons. Joseph Smith Jr., their prophet and king, said that Mormons are the only true Christians, Jews, and Freemasons. Mormons also refer to everyone outside their cult as "Gentiles",

    Mitt goes to the United Kingdom to show what a Statesman after a speech berating President Obama as a leader who apologizes to foreign countries. Within record time of open mouth, insert foot, Mitt is doing nothing but apologizing and kissing some serious butt for his faux pas. Now, when he goes to Israel he will most likely feed them some lines of bombing Iran and anything else that sounds tough. This guy is George Bush reincarnated with the same old guard.  Who really knows what this guy actually stands for?

    Maybe there is a short in his motherboard. I mean, he's not actually human is he? I just assumed he was patched together from discarded bits of other Republican rich people and then programmed to repeat certain phrases.

    This election is certainly neck and neck. Pepsi! No, Coke! No, Pepsi! No, Coke...

    Decisions, decisions...

    You know what they say, 'you never get a second chance to make a first impression". Visions of GW Bush must come to mind for Europe right now. Mitt is the shakiest tongue in the West, East, North and South. I am going to be sure to have my popcorn and ringside seat available when he faces the president during the debates.

    I would not go so far to say that he would be incompetent at foriegn relations, it is just that his handlers need to get a better handle on him in the areas of etiquette and judgement, qualities that I certainly want to see in my head of state.

      Mitt is not allowed to do squat without the consent of his cult president/prophet and the Council of 50. Does America really want their next president to be a member of a cult, one who does the bidding of a false prophet and a mysterious group of 50?

    Well if its true that the company hired for security didn't have enough people last week( according AP) and they had to bring in 1,000 British troops for security  there may have been some credence to what he said.  I believe he said. "You never know if you're ready.  He has had some experience in the Olympic organization.   Wasn't he  the guy who pulled off the Salt Lake City Olympics when it was floundering.

      I don't know tirelesstraveler, the salt lake olympics seem minute compared to London. Also the financial statements have been destroyed in Utah, not good for knowing where the proceeds went. Mitt is a businessman but is it enough to be president?

      The point that is being deliberately missed:  Romney is too stupid to know what to say, and he is too stupid to know when to shut his mouth. His wife is no better.
