Charles Krauthammer was “out of adjectives” to express his disgust with Mitt Romney after the candidate said there were some “disconcerting” logistical problems facing the London Olympics.
Romney’s remarks angered many Brits and prompted a biting response from Prime Minister David Cameron, who said putting on the Olympics is certainly easier if you hold them “in the middle of nowhere” — seen as a slam to Salt Lake City, where Romney managed the Games in 2002.
Krauthhammer, appearing on Fox News’ “Special Report with Bret Baier” Thursday, was beside himself over Romney’s remark, which came during a taped interview with NBC’s Brian Williams.
“What Romney answered in that question, it’s unbelievable, it’s beyond human understanding, it’s incomprehensible. I’m out of adjectives,” Krauthhammer said.
Romney’s overseas trip to England, Poland and Israel, “all of which have been treated roughly and badly by Obama,” means the presumptive Republican nominee just has to “show up and say wonderful stuff about his hosts,” he added.
“Imply we’re going to be strong allies and everybody in those countries and around the world will understand it’s a rebuke, without saying so, a silent rebuke to Obama,” Krauthammer said.
He added, “All Romney has to do is say nothing. It’s like a guy in the 100-meter dash. All he has to do is to finish, he doesn’t have to win. And instead, he tackles the guy in the lane next to him and ends up disqualified. I don’t get it.”
