Romney tries to score on Libya

Romney Fumbles on Foreign Relations

Romney insults Britain

Mitt Romney blundered on his first diplomatic outing by questioning whether London was capable of staging a successful Olympic Games. It astonished Downing Street. One senior Whitehall source said: "What a total shocker. We are speechless."
