Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney Tuesday wrapped up his six-day trip to Britain, Israel and Poland, which received mixed reviews at best. The British press ridiculed him for questioning London’s Olympics preparedness and appearing to forget British Labour Party leader Ed Miliband’s name; during his visit to Israel, he infuriated Palestinians with remarks they deemed “racist” and “unacceptable,” and in Poland it was left to Romney campaign spokesman Rick Gorka to fill the gaffe quota by advising reporters to “kiss my ass.”
The White House and the Obama campaign didn’t wait long to criticize the trip. “I think there are a number of things that have been said about the president’s foreign policy record that are inaccurate and that I’d be happy to contest,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said.
