20 Funny #Romneyshambles Tweets

Mitt Romney
Romney is not well-liked in London because he told NBC News that “there were a few things that were disconcerting.”

“The story about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials, that is not something that is encouraging,” said Romney.

In the interview, Romney said that there are 3 things that make the Olympics great.  “Number one is the athletes,” he said. “Number two is the volunteers, they’ll have great volunteers here.

He added “number three, are the people of the country, do they come together and celebrate the Olympic moment? That is something we only find out once the Games actually begin.”

“I think we will show the whole world not just that we come together as a United Kingdom but also we’re extremely good at welcoming people from across the world,” said David Cameron, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, before a meeting was scheduled for him and Romney.  “I will obviously make those points to Mitt Romney. I look forward to meeting him.”

In February 1999, Romney took a leave of absence from Bain Capital to serve as the President and CEO of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Games Organizing Committee.

Currently the hashtag #romneyshambles is trending on Twitter because of Mitt Romney’s discussion about how the Olympics was set up in London.  The hashtag is a play on “omnishambles” from the BBC TV series “The Thick Of It.”  This TV show is a British government satire.
