We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and [Mitt Romney] feels that the special relationship is special. The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have.
–an advisor to candidate Romney, to Britain’s Daily Telegraph
Isn’t That Special?
Our great bond with Great Britain! None’s bigger.
We need Romney to bring back the vigor
Of that special rapport
He appreciates more
Than Obama, that uppity non-Anglo-Saxon.
Romney has distanced himself from the comment, but he himself, just two days ago, suggested Obama just ain’t one of us.
It’s a very strange and in some respects foreign to the American experience type of philosophy. … [Obama's] whole philosophy is an upside-down philosophy that does not comport with the American experience.
-Mitt Romney, on CNBC’s Kudlow Report
