The Obama campaign wasted no time in piling on to the train wreck called Mitt Romney’s overseas trip gaffe after gaffe. Obama senior adviser Robert Gibbs called it an “embarrassing disaster.”
Buzzfeed: ”It is clear that the opportunity to credential his beliefs with the American voters was nothing short for Mitt Romney of an embarrassing disaster on this trip,” Obama senior adviser Robert Gibbs told reporters on a conference call.
Earlier in the call, Gibbs said that the trip “Certainly didn’t prove to anyone that [Romney] passed the commander-in-chief test” and that “Particularly alongside the trip Senator Obama took in 2008, there’s simply no comparison.”
Romney is certainly no more ready for the international stage than Sarah Palin was in 2008, even with all the vast business experience he has. This has been an utter mess.
