Mitt's visit to the UK off on wrong foot. From just published Daily Telegraph: "In remarks that may prompt accusations of racial insensitivity, one [Romney aide] suggested that Mr. Romney was better placed to understand the depth of ties between the two countries than Mr. Obama, whose father was from Africa. 'We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special,' the adviser said of Mr Romney, adding: 'The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have.'"
More: “Obama is a Left-winger," said another. "He doesn’t value the Nato alliance as much, he’s very comfortable with American decline and the traditional alliances don’t mean as much to him. He wouldn’t like singing ‘Land of Hope and Glory'.” Juan Cole weighs in here.http://t.co/Elj6Jd3Z
