Romney Advisor To London Telegraph: Obama Doesn’t “Fully Appreciate” Our “Anglo Saxon Heritage”
Liberaland ^ | July 24, 2012 | Alan Combs

Posted on 07/24/2012 11:16:41 PM PDT by GLH3IL

Ahead of Mitt Romney’s trip to Britain, Jon Swaine of The Telegraph says a Romney advisor told the paper, “We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special. The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have.”

Another Romney advisor said, “Obama is a Left-winger. He doesn’t value the Nato alliance as much, he’s very comfortable with American decline and the traditional alliances don’t mean as much to him. He wouldn’t like singing ‘Land of Hope and Glory’.”

....and in reading the comments to this little blurb....race card invocation initiated. Team Romney needs to ensure that they speak honestly and openly, but let's not try to toss around terms that no one cares about and that can be turned into another race card smoke screen.

This was a President who recorated the White House by tossing out a loaned bust of Winston Churchill.

I concur. If there is any way they can stick legs on this fish they
sure as hell will. That GB and America are historically joined at
the hip is a fact that is lost on Obama. To express that with terms
like “Anglo - Saxon” seems to provide an opening for the race
baiter crowd.

Every group in America is supposed to be proud of its heritage....except white Christians. They are supposed to pay the bills for every other group and shut up.

This will no doubt be twisted as racist when Romney is making a quite legitimate statement about the cultural heritage of our nation.

Perhaps that's what the Romney camp wants.

“...Leftist hand shaker appropriately on the left.

In today’s world, Truman would be to the right of Romney, Boehner, McConnell...make you feel better about ‘Conservatism’ in the GOP?

Why are unnamed ‘Romney advisors’ always speaking to the press (other than to bash Sarah Palin)?

Yep, the Left will morph this into WASP - "White Anglo-Saxon Protestant".

You can make book on it.

we still don’t know if barry did that or the little ballerina Rahmbo, his “Chief of Staff” did that

Rahmbo had his own bone to pick with the British - so to speak
