The British media – who generally make “TMZ” and “Entertainment Tonight” look pretty sober and respectable in comparison – are selling a lot of papers by bagging on Mitt Romney’s “gaffe” over London’s preparations for the Olympics…
…that wasn’t a gaffe at all. They’re the most over-budget games in modern Olympic history. The police are overmatched by the security (to say nothing of traffic) nightmare, and are bringing in the British Army to help – not just in specialist roles (as in Romney’s Salt Lake City Winter games), but for the daily blocking and tackling.
But the real question in all of this is: are you, the American taxpayer, worker and voter, better off now than you were in 2008?
That was the Beijing Olympics, if I recall correctly?
