Well Mitt keeps his foreign bashing on a roll. He's definitely doing everything he can to avoid an 'apology tour'.

You may remember that London Mayor Boris Johnson lashed out at a crowd of 60,000+ about Romney's remarks about London's preparedness. He pretty much called Romney a 'glorified visitor' and proceeded to lead the crowd in a chant of 'Yes We Can'.

Addressing 60,000 Londoners on Thursday night, Johnson said: ‘I hear there's a guy called Mitt Romney who wants to know whether we're ready Are we ready? Yes we are!

He then led the crowd in a chant of 'Yes We Can', Obama's famous campaign slogan from 2008. 'Can we put on the greatest Olympics games that have ever been held?' he asked. 'Can we beat France? Yes we can! Can we beat Australia? Yes we can!'

Well instead of moving on and hoping the world forgets, Rmoney Camp has lashed out:

A Romney campaign official has blasted Boris Johnson, the London Mayor, as an ‘eccentric, odd fellow’ whose public attack on the Republican candidate was ‘unbecoming’ and an indication of his bias towards President Barack Obama.
‘Johnson on the other hand lived up to his reputation as an eccentric, odd fellow. It was unbecoming to attack Governor Romney in that way. There really was no need.  But Johnson made it clear in 2008 that his vote would have gone to Obama.’
See, its unbecoming to attack Romney for attacking Britain, because Johnson was a Obama supporter. But if say.... a conservative Brit insults Romney, that is immediately forgivable:
The official said that Prime Minister David Cameron’s ‘wisecrack’ about it being harder to stage an Olympic Games in London than ‘in the middle of nowhere’ – an apparent  reference to Salt Lake City, where Romney oversaw the 2002 Winter Olympics – was ‘probably appropriate, albeit awkward’ and unfortunate for Romney
Update: With all this fingerpointing I wonder if its time for a shakeup in the Romney Camp? Who do you think would stay/go? And how would the strategy change?

Further down in the article you get this gem:

The campaign official, who was not directly involved organising the London trip,
that that the Romney campaign had not prepared sufficiently for ‘a visit of this magnitude’ and that the candidate had not been briefed properly on how to answer questions about the staging of the Olympic
So the guy who 'saved' the olympics is not ready for a trip of magnitude to meet world leaders, show some charm, or answer questions about how to properly stage olympics he supposedly saved.

Game. Set. Match.

5:28 AM PT: Bonus Romneyism along the lines of 'the trees are just the right height':

“The weather could not be better. Fortunately the sunshine is out and the warmth is here,”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
