As you may have heard, Mitt Romney is touring the world right now like a filthy rich version of Clark Griswold, showing the international community exactly what they’ll be getting in the event he’s elected president this November. His first stop was in England yesterday, where he, ugh, “charmed” the Brits with his overwhelming Anglo-Saxonness.

Mitt Romney handed Barack Obama a potential gift for the US presidential election campaign when the presumptive Republican nominee blundered on his first diplomatic outing by questioning whether London was capable of staging a successful Olympic Games.

In a move that astonished Downing Street, hours before it laid on a special reception for Romney at No 10, he told NBC there were “disconcerting” signs about the preparations for the Games. One senior Whitehall source said: “What a total shocker. We are speechless.”

David Cameron wasted no time in rebuking Romney hours after his remarks were broadcast. On a visit to the Olympic Park, the prime minister said: “We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities in the world. Of course it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.”

HAHAHA…Mitt Romney is — in addition to being Griswold-esque — America’s version of Borat. I hope he also asked the Queen if he could “make a shit” in Buckingham Palace while he’s there.

Anyway, Colbert had some fun with this last night. Enjoy.
