Foreign policy cred ...

Or the lack thereof. On the Mittster's first trip put of the country as a candidate, he managed to piss off one of our staunchest allies. Wonder what he's gonna do with our enemies?

Mitt Romney is off to a spectacularly bad start in London, at least according to the British press ridiculing the Republican candidate on his first major foreign trip.

British officials — and the newspapers that cover them — took offense to Romney questioning whether London is well-prepared to handle the security issues ahead of the summer games. Romney called the situation “disconcerting.” British Prime Minister David Cameron hit back, saying there is no doubt “Britain can deliver.”

“We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world,” Cameron added. “Of course it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.”

You and I did our first posts on Willard's farcical trip at just about the same time. Great minds...:-)
