A senior adviser to President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign on Sunday lamented that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney had “embarrassed” the U.S. by insulting Britain as they kicked off the Olympic games last week.
Robert Gibbs told ABC’s Matthew Dowd that Romney had disgraced himself “in front of our strongest ally in the world.”
“Look, Mitt Romney wondered aloud whether London was ready for the Olympics, and I think it’s clear that voters in this country wonder aloud whether Mitt Romney is ready for the world,” Gibbs quipped. “And I think the world is not yet ready for Mitt Romney.”
