He is also very unpopular in the UK (as was G.W. Bush). Bush was, at least, on good terms with our PM, where as Romney has already stuck his foot in it with the current PM. Of course coming over to the UK and being asked a soft question of how he though preparations were coming along for the Olympics and saying “There are a few things that were disconcerting”, referring to the Leader of the opposition as “Mr. Leader”, and confirming that he had a briefing from MI6, it just… well it played of him being an arrogant idiot. Bush was at least, only an idiot (and if he hadn’t started two wars, one of which illegal, and dragged us into it - he probably would have been relatively well received in the UK… we like our well meaning idiots!).
