Why the heck should we care what any sassenach says about Mitt Romney?

The British rags had a bit of a field day criticizing Mitt Romney in London. Why should we care? It's not as if Englishmen have any vote in the states, do they?

    Basically, when Karl Rove says that Mitt screwed up, it must have been pretty bad:

    Mitt went there to show the world his foreign policy acumen. He failed completely, and on multiple occasions. This should be sounding alarms with concerned voters everywhere.

    Compare that with how smooth Obama looked, especially in Germany, during the 2008 presidential campaign.

    This is why I can see Mitt nominating Condi Rice as his running mate, since she obviously has the foreign policy experience that Mitt utterly lacks.

    Standing on Israeli soil, U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday declared Jerusalem to be the capital of the Jewish state and said the United States has "a solemn duty and a moral imperative" to block Iran from achieving nuclear weapons capability.

    If Mitt was president, this would be a HUGE change in our Israel policy, and a departure from US policy since 1960. All previous presidents, from Kennedy on, understood that if this was US policy, then the US is far too biased to be taken seriously as part of the Middle East peace process. In fact, there would be no Middle East peace policy. (For what it's worth, Obama made the same mistake in 2008 and wasted no time walking his statement back).
