The BeeB (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-18995166) were quite kind to him.

Oh well, maybe he shouldn't have pointed out the screw ups.
Maybe he should not rely on Fox News?

Maybe he should just candy coat their screw ups? So liberals will feel better.

You mean like forgetting the name of British Labour Leader Ed Miliband? Those kinds of screw ups?

Really. Don't mention MI6 because they've only been public since 1994?

Stupidest thing I've ever heard.

And for an Alaskan to judge what ought to offend the Brits might be the second stupidest.

PIERS MORGAN: I thought he was absolutely right, wasn't he? I mean, it's no secret over here that for the last three weeks, the security at the Olympics has been in shambles. The outside firm they got in to run it has been all over the place, they didn't have enough people, and the army had to be drafted in. So Mitt Romney was only saying exactly what's been happening. And he's run an Olympics, so I thought he was perfectly entitled to be critical. Clearly, he had to slightly change his rhetoric after the Brits pointed out, hang on a second, old boy, you've got to talk us up a bit. But I thought it was a bit of a fuss about nothing. They have had some issues here, especially about security, and he was just speaking the truth, which sometimes can be rather unpalatable.
