Piers Morgan defends Romney comments on London Olympics

To catch you up quickly on this non-troversy that apparently took the Brits by storm this morning, Romney made some honest remarks to Brian Williams last night when he was asked if London was ready for the Olympics:

Big freaking deal right? I mean, he didn’t really say anything that hasn’t been in the news already, here and here and I’m sure in other places.

But because the British press helped everyone get their panties in a wad, Romney clarified his comments later, playing down his concerns (h/t: The Hill):

I thought he handled that pretty well, which brings me to the reason for the post. Piers Morgan was on CNN earlier today and was asked how the Brits are handling Romney’s comments, and Morgan gave his own frank assessment which was that Romney was just telling the truth (h/t: Mediaite):

Kudos to Piers Morgan for being sensible, and right for once.
