Gah, who cares about Romney's racehorse? Seriously? This makes me sick, it's so petty and irrelevant. It's class warfare. And like Obama isn't rich? Kerry was even richer than Mitt, but the media didn't care about that.
The thing about Krauthammer is that he reads the left's talking points about 33 percent of the time. He trashed Palin and most of the candidates, repeating the left about them.
Still better than Kristol, smarter too, but gah, I'm mad at him right now.
Good grief, what he said may have offended some of the snobbish British but it sure isn't worth all the fuss that is being made over it.
I'm more concerned that the Nation of Islam has been invited to patrol the street of Chicago by Obamas former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel than anything Romney did or said. And, by the way, what ever happened to the bust Of Winston Churchill that Obama returned to the British within days of taking office ?
Sent from my free cell phone..................
Romney didn't say anything to offend me or anyone i know only the Obama loving lefty media,the same media who had been slating the government & security firm for about a week over the security firms inability to employ enough guards. As for Boris the Mayor we love him over here as you never know what he's going to say next a rarity in politicians today. At least Mitt didn't bring a IPod full of his speeches over here he brought a beautiful top class dressage horse who I can't wait to see perform good luck to them.
According to LIAR Obama's surrogates, Chick-fil-A is a security threat to the USA and probably the London games.
Let's think here, deflect any and all issues about the LIAR and focus on a horse, a sandwich shop, etc etc....
Did Romney take any gifts to the Brits like an IPod with his recorded speeches ?
Well Romney was right about "Is England ready".
Screw ups with North Korea's flag video presentation which made them to storm off the soccer field, and a few other things at the start proved him right.
As usual, I have a feeling that the rep's will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory
In this Presidential race I would rather be carrying around my statement that there is a concern about the security at the Olympics, which is true and has been reported on for weeks, than carrying around my statement that the American businessman's initiatives and successes are a myth.
Oh, please. You're being just like a stupid liberal, Kraut. Romney's rich, he earned his money and he's entitled to spend it. This is bullcrap for people to be expecting him to act like he doesn't have money or doesn't participate in elitist sports. Get over it.
But Charles, you and the RINO panel on FOX told us that Romney was the only one that could win. That Romney was fully vetted, and that there would be no surprises!
So Charles would have Romney be someone other than himself since he is running for office? I believe Romney already tried that years ago and that is part of his problem from the start here in that he supposedly inauthentic. I appreciate that Romney has quit pandering and just tries to be himself now. The real Romney is not too bad so far! It is a free country (well mostly) and the Romneys can participate in whatever they damn well please Charles!
Charles, thousands of horse fan will disagree with your statement on the "Hoity-Toity".
However Romney's comment on his wife's horse and watching probably just turned off those horse fans that may of been warming up to him.
Krauthammer is exactly right about Mitt's visit to the the "Nation of Great Brittan" as Mitt called it. Total disaster and his answer/comment about his wife's horse was shameful and insensitive. He basically said that he didn't give a whip about the horse or the event and wasn't going to watch. Way to back up your spouse. If that was my wife's horse, I would have been positive and interested about it, not dismissive. People don't care what event the horse is in, but at least appear supportive of your wife's interests and personal life.
Whats the deal here? Krauthhammer was all about Romney in the primarys, nobody else would do,now he runs him down???Just like an elitist republican to help Obama now,way to go Krauthammer.
That reminds me of the way National Review decided to endorse Romney in 2008.
They came out with an issue with him on the cover looking all Presidential and stuff. Then for several months they bagged on him with wet blanket conservative articles and comments like Krauthammer and Ponnuru are known for, all seeming to chide Romney at every turn. What a stoopid way to run an endorsement.
I hate to say it but I guess after people like Carter, Bush, and Obama it doesn't matter but Romney doesn't look presidential. What is that shoulder thing. Romney needs to act like he belongs on the stage and not like he doesn't.
Yeah, he pretty much looks like your archetypical modern President.
Obama is the exception there. He's like, way cool and stuff.
Oh, then forgive me. The word that threw me off was "archetypical". It made me think of Frankenstein for some reason. Wow, I blew that one!!!
So, you were saying that he is basically what we see when we think of the stereotypical President? Ok, it makes sense now that you said Obama is cool...not Presidential. Sorry.
Lol, you are such a pessimist. He might be your horror story but I'm going to laugh my ass off if he makes all you naysayers look stupid for your assumptions. Am I willing to bet on it? No. Am I willing to give him a shot? Yes. Half the people here want to destroy the man before he even gets one foot in the door....and he's the only chance we have of getting in the door.
I really like this guy, but he is part of the system. He is praising Romney! He must be getting a cur! He is getting ripped off! With all the medical advances we have in the US, oh wait! That's right! The government is holding back! If he was really that important, he would be walking now and getting wood:-)! Look at Chaney (aka antichrist jr) he should be dead X 5. Look at Krauthammer ; I'll only say enough to piss off the American people (aka SHEEP) and have a good life! Krauthammer, just tell the truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Instead of talking about this charles., how about us talking about the IOC http://www.olympic.org/ whome seems very political. how much longer will we even have the olympics? !
Oh maybe they just needed a distraction at the Olympics to coverup their latest appeasement and cowering to islamofasicts.......
Expelling an athlete who tweeted a joke about "African" (muslim) immigrants
or this one....
Holding an Olympic memorial for Bosnian muslims even though the IOC has steadfastly refused to ever recognize the slaughter of Jews at the Olympics by muslims
Mitt Rockefeller Romney has a super expensive horse strutting around in London
Olympics in a most hoity - toity snob upper class event,while he's running for Presidency
Geez.....this liberal fraud RINO is more arrogant than I thought!!!
Worse than Jean Francois Kerry.
In a certain way, I agree with Krauthammer that "all Romney had to do, is say nothing". I guess having headed the Salt Lake City Olympics he saw the flaws in the London one. I think it's his second nature that made him cite the obvious, except he was not in friendly territories. The Brits are also under a lot of stress, now to state the lack of security is like calling for a catastrophe. He should have mentioned his concerns to private ears not in front of the press.
Boo hoo the poor socialist Brits. Obama treating the Brits shabbily doesn't equal Brits are great and should be kowtowed to.
Simple truth is incomprehensible? Salt Lake City is the middle of nowhere? Nowhere? It's in the middle of the USA! We'll see who and what is nowhere Cameron!
Nowhere is where where Britain would be without the USA to defend it. Nowhere is where your entire continent would be but for "The Greatest generation"!
Put on your burkha along with rest of your little island, and shove a three-cornered American cowboy hat up your asses, again. Oh say can you see? No, I don't think you can.
I haven't read enough about Romney's remarks to comment. But as far as Ann Romney's horse competing in Olympic Dressage is concerned, thousands of horse fans all over the US are rooting for Rafalca!
It takes a very special horse and YEARS of training to get to the level of Olympic caliber competition. For all intents and purposes it IS a Once in a Lifetime thing. And for crying out loud neither Ann nor Mitt Romney is riding the horse. It's not even remotely like John Kerry windsurfing.
For those who don't know what dressage is and how incredibly COOL it really is, take a look. This is Moorlands Totalis, the best dressage horse in the world right now:
"most upper class, hoity-toity event in the Olympics" Sorry, I'm totally middle class and LOVE dressage! My daughter competed locally and we had a blast. Just because many people aren't familiar with classical riding doesn't make it a sport of the 'elite'.
Romney on Olympics: "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 ..." I guess Charles hadn't heard that they were short about 5000 security people and had to bring in service men. Romney also went on to say that no Olympics come off without mistakes and things have a way of ironing themselves out. Clearly, Charles needs to eat more fiber.
The British media made a HUGE deal over nothing. This was a stupid thing to get all excited about. Romney said nothing wrong.
I understand Charles' point (I don't agree with it)... this unnecessarily gave the left some ammunition. However, they will say and do anything to redirect attention away from Obama and his gaffe no matter what Romney does or doesn't say, so who cares. And not putting an Olympic-capable horse in the Olympics? Are you serious Charles? Then the left will bash Romney for not being patriotic or something by not helping America to shine during the Olympics.
This is an off day for Charles. I really expected him to state something similar to my point(s). Not because I'm right... but because it makes more sense imo.
Cameron is a dolt. Big Obama suck up. Krauthammer goes up and down on the issues - sometimes I agree with him, sometimes I don't. It's just how he is. Personally, I don't think London is ready for the Olympics. They have a huge Muslim problem over there, and already, there have been major security issues. Romney said nothing wrong.
Dr. K, you know sometimes if you can not give some positive advice DON'T criticize, at least not in public!
The public could care less about those comments. No is worried about the Olympics in this country. We have the Obama Olympics going for almost four years now. We are having security problems because of it too. Romney should just keep walking and pay no attention.
As far as the horse thing? Do voters give a, you know what, about this? Hell no. The media will flop that dead fish out there but all it will do is stink.
