CARL LEWIS SLAMS ROMNEY: #Romneyshambles and #AmericanBorat lives another day. Former American gold medal winner Carl Lewis is weighing in on Mitt Romney insult about London’s preparedness for the Olympics, telling The Independent, “I swear, sometimes I think some Americans shouldn’t leave the country. Are you kidding me, stay home if you don’t know what to say.” Damn! Thank God First Lady Michelle Obama will take over the British media’s news cycle and ignore Mitt Romney.
Lewis, who won 10 Olympic medals including 9 gold during his career, criticised the presidential candidate for suggesting London may not be ready for the Olympics.Mr Romney faced widespread criticism and mockery yesterday for his comments – and for seemingly forgetting the Laborr leader Ed Miliband’s name during a press conference.
Much of the criticism came from the social networking site Twitter – with many users tagging comments about Romney with the hashtag #romneyshambles. Source: The Independent
