White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announced that President Obama received an Olympic Security briefing on Thursday.
"Earlier this morning, John Brennan, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism hosted an Olympic security deputy's meeting, with the full terrorism and law enforcement community, to take stock of our efforts working with the United Kingdom to prepare for the London 2012 Olympic games. Following that meeting, Mr. Brennan provided the President with an update on the Olympics as well as the United States government's support to the United Kingdom prior to and during the games. The President directed that we continue to ensure that we are doing everything possible to keep the American people safe and to continue close cooperation with our British counterparts in keeping with our special relationship, the President also made clear he has the utmost confidence in our close friend and ally, the United Kingdom, as they finalize preparations to host the London Olympics."
The President is going to have clean up Romney's diplomatic mess.
What mess? Tell us what mess Romney left!. Funny how NOBODY including CNN reported any mess!
Romney, as usual, put foot in his mouth.
Ask his advisor.
@2020, again, I ask. What mess? Give me something specific.!
Only 1 days in UK, stupid thing already happend. here, UK news reported:
1. Romney advisor stold UK news the President didn't understand US-UK relationship. Romney later denied.
2. Early Thursday morning in the U.K., while much of the U.S. political world was fast asleep, the British press had seized on comments the GOP contender made about London's preparations for the Olympics.
YOU CAN BE ASSURED THERE ARE MORE OF THESE WRONG FOOT IN MOUTH NEWS COMING. OFF THE PROMPTER, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM ROMNEY?
You mean these comments? From the Kansas City Star?
Romney, kicking off a visit to Europe that's meant to burnish his foreign policy credentials, was referring to the much publicized failure of a private security company, G4S, to furnish the 10,000 security guards it had agreed to provide security at Olympic venues. The British military had to step in, calling up an additional 3,500 troops last week and 1,200 this week to fill the gap.

Get yourself updated
The start of Mitt Romney's foreign tour has been overshadowed by a reported remark by an aide that Barack Obama does not understand the "Anglo-Saxon heritage" shared by Britain and the United States.
The presidential hopeful's campaign scrambled to deny that one of its operatives had told a British newspaper that Mr Romney, unlike Mr Obama, understands the "Anglo-Saxon heritage" underpinning the so-called special relationship with Britain.

Read your second paragraph! Somehow you forget to tell us how even Piers Morgan thought Romney was telling the truth!
BOOKMARK THIS. SEE WHAT ROMNEY WILL SAY LATER.
(CNN) – Speaking on foreign turf, Mitt Romney offered some criticism of his own party on Thursday, saying the GOP sometimes uses the wrong phrasing when it comes to regulation reform.
"We have in our party, I think, on occasion misspoken by just saying we're for deregulation–to some that means we want to get rid of all regulation. That's not true," Romney said at a fundraiser in London, according to pool reports.
we can go back and forth all day long, if Biden, with his history can be the Veep, certainly Romney can be the President!
Can't believe that you didn't hear about this, SteveO. 'Mitt the twit', 'Nowhere Man' (google the lyrics). Your guy was born with a silver foot in his mouth.
THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL BE SUFFERING FOR A LONG TIME, DUE TO THE MESSES OBAMA HAS CREATED.
That may be true but first we have to finish cycling through all the suffering we currently have thanks to the mess left by Bush.
IF OBAMA AND THE OBAMA STOOGES THINK THERE IS ENOUGH OLYMPIC SECURITY IN ENGLAND ... LET'S SAVE SOME MONEY, BY REMOVING THE MILLIONS OF TAX PAYERS DOLLARS ON SECRET SERVICE PROTECTION FOR MICHELLE WHEN SHE GOES THERE.
WHAT'S THE MATTER HOWARD? DID MICHELLE TELL YOU YOU ARE TOO FAT TO BE TROLLING CNN?
Mitt the twit will have to clean up his own mess. His gaffes bear no reflection on President Obama.
REPLACE THE AMATEUR WITH A REAL PRESIDENT !!!
President Barack Obama is a true Statesman. He communicates with such ease and has a commanding presence but is very easy going at the same time. – you feel a warmth towards him almost as if you know him personally. Mitt Romney on the other hand looks as if he is trying too hard to apper to be statesman-like and comes across as akward. When you see him on television he does not appear to be likeable and has a smirk on his face as if he is looking down his nose on other prople. I personally find Mitt Romney to be a turn off.
You are absolutely right.
No one witch hunt Romney, but, he is so conscious about his tax return, his wealth and where he hide them, he is paranoid, constantly nagging people to get off his back on his presumed success.
Well, there are many successful businessmen and women in this country, the president not chase them around. Only Romney see ghosts all around him day in day out. Wonder if he is mentally stable enough to seek the highest office – president in this country.
I don't see Romney fits in that oval office. It will be too demanding for him.
You no doubt vote Dem across the board so why would say anything different?
ANOTHER OBAMA STOOGE WHO IS EASILY IMPRESSED BY STYLE RATHER THAN SUBSTANCE. FORGET THE FLOWERY SPEECHES, OBAMA IS DESTROYING AMERICA WITH HIS STUPID POLICIES.
Another GOTP troll, who can only regurgitate right wing rhetoric from Rash Limpbag. It is the GOTP saboteurs in Congress who are destroying our country, just to kowtow to their puppet master, Norquist, instead of passing bipartisan jobs bills that would put Americans to work immediately.
They should be tried for conspiracy against the US, treason, liable, and slander.
Romney is savvy and scripted. Sometimes that's a plus and smmiteoes it's a minus. I like to see evidence of spontaneity, self-confidence, sincerity, personal values these days campaigns are so highly-funded and carefully plotted out that it's hard to tell what we are actually seeing. I think in some ways that is very detrimental. But it may be unavoidable, to a great extent. I've brought this up before, but I'll never forget attending a George Bush (the first one) event at Brigham Young University (during his campaign) and being hugely disappointed. Here was a man who had been a pilot in WWII, a diplomat to China, the head of the CIA, etc. and etc., and instead of teaching us anything or sharing any personal wisdom he had gained over time, he served us up political twinkies that were calculated to please the local audience. It was a total joke and for some reason the audience was cheering the whole time. It felt like I was at an early Beatles rock concert with a couple of thousand brainless 14-year-old girls (not a good thing, at all).Politics really interests me but the process can be quite a disappointment smmiteoes.
Mitt Romney already signed Grover NORman Quest's pledge. the revival of the Hitler master race theory..were the master race rules everything....the Norman Quest for the return of the Aryan super race...Why does Grover NORman Quest have his pledge? That pledge has control over 238 House members and 41 Senators, and Mitt Romney requires all of his staff, and people around him, and all the GOP convention delegates to sign a Loyalty Pledges to Mitt Romney...Having to sign Loyalty Pledges does not sound good...It sounds a little freaky..like the 1930's in Ger-many...freaky..like Brown Shirts freaky...
the brits are still upset with mittens . Number one topic on British news. Leave it to milktoast to use his great diplomatic skills to insult our greatest allies. Way to go mitt and you complaine about the presidents foreign policys. ? Now on to Isreal what will you do there to kiss ass? Steveo your boy is a real looser. and t he world is just getting a taste. Besides his trip on campaign money was to see his horse pranch around. So much for listening and learning. Hey mitt learn to keep your trap shut.Forward 2012 Keep the loonie tunes out of the white house and back in La Jolla where he belonges.
anyone remember the dixie chicks .? The repos where all upset when they dished the pres while in england. No such problem when mitt and his team dished the pres.Whats wrong with this picture? . President has been briefed by britan on olympic security. Mitts mad no one is telling him.He is more of a problem than anything else. Move on you idiot.
judy are you objective about anything?
Mitt called it as he saw it and he did have something to do with the Olympics...cleaning up that corrupted mess. BFD...get over it...small talk.
I wonder if Obama was told that there were not enough security forces initially (a fact which the media ironically criticized Romney for repeating).
UH, MITT ROMNEY DID NOT REPORT IT. HE WAS PARROTING SOMETHING TO THE POINT OF BEING RUDE AND IMPOLITE. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE ISRAEL TRIP TO SEE WHAT ELSE HE WILL DO NEXT. MAYBE HE SNORT AT HIS PAL BIBI FOR NOT BOMBING IRAN YET.
Hmmmm, parroting and being impolite........That sounds just like you and judy.
OR MAYBE YOU'VE BEEN HAVING TOO MUCH TEQUILA FLAVORED KOOL AID. SLOW DOWN SON.
Dec...you just dont make sense...today either. Please take a deep breath...and then grow up.
Washington should be worried about taking care of what is happening inside our borders and not about the Olympics, I don't want to flip their bill for another vacation this time to England. The problem is in this country.
Why would the Brits inform Pres.Obama on their security measures, the WH can't keep their own from leaking everything that they think would be of value for reelection, or did not enough secret service personnel go with Michelle Obama?
hahahaha you are right...but then, what else would one expect from a country at the brink of economic collapse?
Republican policies led to the horrific collapse of the U.S. economy
Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be at the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst people consider worries that they plainly do not recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect , other people could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you
I have been surfing on-line greater than three hours lately, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It's lovely worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web shall be a lot more useful than ever before.
