Phoenix Woman commented on the blog post Romney Hints British Anglo Saxons Would Likely Lose if They Retried War of 1812
Meanwhile, the Establishment US Media (TV Division) is far gentler to the Mittster, and somewhat sniffy in their disapproval of the UK media for picking on the Golden Boy.
Here’s CBS’ Stephanie Condon doing the You’re-So-Mean Whinge:
In his first trip abroad as a presidential candidate, Mitt Romney intended to show off his strength as a statesman. Instead, he made a number of bungles — and in their traditional fashion, the British press tore him apart for it.
ABC News’ Shushannah Walshe and Emily Friedman (or their editors) soften the blow for Willard by making sure that a link to a story on overseas gaffes by other US politicians gets prominent placement in their own article (and yes, Obama’s “death camp gaffe” is the first one mentioned).
Anyone wanna bet that if this was Obama — or any non-Republican — who dissed the London Olympics, the US media outlets would be echoing the Brits, if not trying to outdo them in expressing their outrage?
