Romney, Olympics, and Twits

I sat down at my computer this afternoon, opened up my Twitter account and… gasp!  OMG!  Romney made a vaguely critical comment about the London Olympics and the liberal twittersphere is… atwitter.

This tells me two things:

1) Romney needs to remember that he’s no longer just a wealthy businessman – he is a presidential candidate, and he needs to be more careful of his critiques of the goings on in allied countries.

2) If this is the best they can get against Romney, he’s doing pretty well.  It’s not like he bowed to a corrupt foreign despot, or sent the Queen an iPod with his speeches on it.

Talk about temptest in a teapot.

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
