Target -- a segment tonight criticizing Mitt Romney on July 25 the governor said this in London about the Olympics.
It's hard to know just how well -- turnout will turn out there a few things that were disconcerting that stories about the private security firm not having enough people.
Suppose suppose a strike of the immigration and customs officials.
Well after hearing that Charles Krauthammer up high end this way.
Would Romney answered -- -- question is unbelievable it's beyond human understanding it's incomprehensible.
I'm out of adjectives that.
All the -- has to do is seen nothing.
Joining us now from Washington is mr.
-- -- I gotta say I don't think what Romney said it was all adult and I didn't think it was malicious item vetoes are responsible are any of that I just -- He's an expert on the Olympics he ran one he -- you know you know a few possible flaws.
Now out of the press is paying him alone makes an appointee Jose even -- -- -- z.'s.
You know Canadian or whatever word you want to use and you sent.
I say they're here obviously Iran.
I can't say -- what he said.
I didn't say that what he said was wrong and I didn't say.
That it was something really you know you couldn't refute that the point of that is.
He wasn't being interviewed as an Olympic expert.
He's being interviewed as a presidential candidate about to head overseas.
On a trip to three places chosen precisely.
Because Barack Obama had -- each of these allies.
Britain and Israel on Poland and the point -- -- trip was to show solidarity.
And appreciation of the allies so when -- asked that question about the Olympics.
Would you do it's hit a three foot putt.
You say you know I love the Olympic spirit I've been there and I'm sure the brits.
Without ingenuity and -- are gonna have the wonders of Olympics -- -- story -- and -- knows Larry let me challenge all right.
If I were Mitt Romney would answer exactly the same way because he gave an honest answer now what you're saying is it wrong.
And -- wrong.
If your political advisor you say hey governor no matter what they say put on -- happy faced on the grade and go home.
-- I don't like politicians like that I want people answer the question the way they think it should be answered I respect candor.
-- when you're saying is politically strategically correct but what I'm saying is.
He didn't say anything wrong he was honest in his assessment and they shouldn't get hammered for.
He didn't say anything on true.
But on the eve of a visit.
With foreign policy trip.
Meant to demonstrate.
Your solidarity with allies and that don't go and say something that -- out.
Being the butt of a rally in London on the even know why opening ceremony why he would lead by -- amateur -- -- -- I'm curious answer.
I don't know become a blood of -- -- the British are very tough people we know that.
This is just hold only immediate contrived.
We have been.
By anti Romney people that's what it is there was no way to bring them here and whine about that.
The mayor of London when he -- this rally.
In which he -- he made Romney into the but.
-- why are about -- it's John losing any -- in the American Media that made him do that.
He cited political opportunity for him so that's right yeah it is a liberal guy -- and by the way he still suspended he's not on -- wired they haven't taken them down.
And I'm there -- we -- He's not a liberal guys a conservative Boris Johnson.
Not a guy who's going after running ideologically.
He -- when you're going abroad you have to calculate what -- gonna say look my objection to well how the trip was covered.
Was that the president took this one gaffe which was a gas.
And turned it into the theme for the whole trip where as the two other parts of the trip the -- in Israel and Poland were a triumph.
And instead of calling it -- in Israel Obama was received by the prime minister was a man of the right and he's -- hard.
And then received by the president who's a man of the left.
And he's -- doubt he's the author of the Oslo accords.
As a kind of a conquering hero he was given essentially the reception of the head of state in Poland.
He was explicitly endorsed.
By the George Washington of that country English Melissa.
Who was a former dissident former president Cold War hero.
I kind of -- years of history second only to Pope John Paul.
And these are the big events of his draft and the -- here are totally ignore this report Iran had absolutely you through fall because they should look Krauthammer thinks she's a dummy.
And so they used you.
Because of that stupid Olympics in which -- amount to anything Krauthammer say the major mistake where.
And they -- and where -- I have to responsible.
I'm not responsive and on his interpretations.
Which you are now.
-- -- -- -- -- Sales of course demanded.
I demanded an apology.
I'm trying to remember now here's an early in I think about February.
