Romney: 'I'm convinced' London is ready for the Games

After his questioning London's preparedness for the Olympics became front-page tabloid fodder, Mitt Romney spoke out on the gaffe Friday.

“I read the same reports I think a lot of people did about all the challenges being faced by the organizing committee, but after being here a couple of days, it looks like London is ready,’’ Romney told Matt Lauer in an interview alongside his wife at TODAY's London set. “I’m absolutely convinced the people here are ready for the Games.’’

In an interview Wednesday with NBC’s Brian Williams, Romney ignited London headlines like Friday’s “Mitt the Twit” in The Sun when he wondered aloud whether the security and infrastructure of the city was ready for the Games. It was a poorly-timed stumble, as Romney is on a diplomatic journey to the United Kingdom, Israel and Poland.

“It’s hard to know just how well it will turn out,’’ Romney told Williams. “There are a few things that were disconcerting stories about the private security firm not having enough people, a supposed strike of the immigrations and customs officials that obviously is not something which is encouraging.’’


That prompted a thinly-veiled shot by British prime minister David Cameron, who alluded to Romney’s role in organizing the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

“We’re holding an Olympic games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world,’’ Cameron said in a statement. “Of course, it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.’’

“Of course it is hard to put on Games in a major metropolitan area,’’ Romney told Lauer. “What they’ve done that I find so impressive is they took the venues and put them right in the city. You’re going to be able to be just in the backside of 10 Downing Street for beach volleyball.

“In just a few moments, all the things politicians say will get swept away because the athletes finally take the stage. The Games are about the athletes. That’s why the Games virtually anywhere they’ve been have been highly successful.’’

The Romneys have a direct connection to the competition, as Ann Romney’s horse, Rafalca, will compete in the Olympic event of dressage.

“Watching my horse, it’s like watching your children play sports,’’ Ann told Lauer. “I know every move that she makes, I know when she makes mistakes, I know what her weaknesses are, I know where she may lose the confidence of the rider a little bit. It is nerve-wracking.’’

Mitt will not watch his wife’s horse compete due to his schedule during the diplomatic visit, but he knows her passion for the competition. He joked that one year his sons gave him a rubber horse mask to wear so that Ann would pay more attention to him.

“I give him a pass when it comes to my horses because he’s so, so supportive of me, having to put up with my love of horses,’’ Ann said.

The multi-millionaire former governor has come under scrutiny for the lack of transparency with his personal finances and taxes. He told Lauer that releasing any more information than what is required will give his opposition a chance to use it against him.

“We just laid out exactly what is required by law, which is all of our financial statements and then in addition, two years of tax reports just like John McCain put out,’’ he said. “We looked at what he did, and we’ve done the same thing. It’s hundreds of pages of documents, and my guess is if you decide to do more and more and more, you just give, if you will, the opposition a chance to distort and twist and be dishonest about more material.’’

At the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., from Aug. 27-30, Romney will officially receive his party’s nomination for president. He knows the themes of his nomination speech, but has not put pen to paper yet.

“It will be a great moment and it will be an opportunity to talk about who we are, but also our vision for the country,’’ Mitt said. “I think this has to be an American century as we go forward. I’m concerned that we’re drifting in a direction right now that is not showing the best side of America.’’

“I think it’s an extraordinary responsibility that both of us have right now that we can represent the world in such an important and significant way,’’ Ann said. “I think it will be an opportunity for the first time for the American people to really take a look at us as people, as individuals and who we really are and what motivates us. For me, it’s going to be a moment of great pride.’’

Before he has to worry about making more difficult political decisions, Romney was put on the spot by Lauer for a more pressing decision: Will it be Michael Phelps or Ryan Lochte when they swim head-to-head?

“I think it’s more likely to be Phelps, but I don’t know,’’ he laughed.

Lets see, 3/08 the stock market (the Dow) was down to $6000, July 27th it went above $13000. Feb the banks were failing and not lending money, today banks are showing record profits as well as many other industries and you say the stimulus did work. Sorry no soup for you. You have no facts. Employment, at the end of the Bush failure we were bleeding 700000 jobs a month, July marked the 20th straight month of positive job growth. In short your a liar, if you say anything other then Obama has been successful, especially with the tea bag congress doing everything in their power to try and make him fail.

    No that is Obama's fault, he is the one that saved this country from a depression. Bush was the one that wrecked the economy, seems like democrats are always the ones to fix it. One nut you act like it was Obama that inherited a budget surplus and a robust economy. pfft thank you for playing.

      in 2004 both houses of congress were Democrat ... imagine that ... the housing market (democrat idea) collapses under the weight of unsustainable debt becuase the congress would not allow republicans to audit fannie freddie OR sallie

        So you want to exclude people from the American dream there fascist. You are quite the tool. It is just plain ignorant of you not to realize that these people were working, paying their bills including their house payment, until the Bush recession, then they could no longer afford their house payments. How stupid of you to bring this up. You lose again. Typical of republicans.

                      Mitt Witt gave the McCain campaign 12 years of taxes, right? And that was for a "possible" VP job.

                      He won't give the American people the same 12 years. He did it once, what's the big deal?

                      Unless....da...da...da........the McCain campaign found some really damaging stuff in them. So bad they were left no alternative then to pick palin and inform old mitt witt to keep those records under wraps.

                          ok, wasn't sure about how many years. I heard 12 but oh well. One question....wasn't that loss to kennedy in 1994? So....lets say old mitt gave Ted the taxes from 1973-1993. Bain Capitol was founded in 1984.....

                          Could it be the problem years for Mitt would have been after 1994 when the kennedys wouldn't have seen those?

                                Again with the lies. Congress spends, Obama don't spend. Obama and congress are simply paying Bush's bills, he is actually spending less then what Bush and the borrow and spend republicans did during the Bush administration.

                                Part of that is because he was responsible enough to budget the 2 wars GW started. We had to start paying for them eventually so it fell into Obama's lap. GW maxed out the credit card and burned thru the savings. Now the bill is due.

                                  What is commonly referred to as food stamps is a government subsistence allowance, much like the banks and big business received called TARP.

                                  I am also a liberal and own two homes. Have never needed foodstamps or even help from my family after leaving home at 18 years old. I own one of my homes outright no mortgage.

                                  I hold two college degrees I paid for, no handouts such as pell grants or even student loans. I worked my way through.

                                  If you watch the town hall meetings for the GOP and Teabillies, it appears they are just as vulnerable to economic woes as are liberals. The difference between a lib on welfare and a conservative on welfare is the conservative bites the hand after grabbing the check.

                                      And One nut, thats just it. Bush didn't pay for those wars, he left it up to the next president. Add that to an unfunded drug benefit. 1 trill. and the tax cuts for the very rich that didn't produce one job and you have Obama's spending. But don't let the truth bother you. Never does does it.

                                        No one nut, the only original spending that Obama has done was the effective and successful stimulus that cost less then a trillion dollars but save millions of jobs. I can't believe a liar like you ever voted for a democrat.

                                              ONEREALMAN - it must hurt really bad to know you have no candidate to vote for, only a president to vote against. When you go to the polls to vote against Obama, you also vote against what tiny shred of dignity and conscience you had left.

                                              You loathe Mitt yet you have no choice but to vote for him.

                                              In essence your vote does not count this time around because you have no candidate that mirrors your values or concerns. I am voting for Obama because in his second term he can use lame duck tactics to push his own agenda and not have to worry about re-election. No one gets what they want done in the first term.

                                              Willard is a two time loser you liked less than MCCain last go around. Now you have put lipstick on that pig and are going to bring him to the party no matter what.

                                              Hey I know, get Anne Coulter to run as VP, or Hannity , either way you get a hard right biatch incapable of making it worse for MItt the Twit.

                                                Truth is, business is built upon our infrasturcture. Obama was only guilty of not saying you didn't built it......Alone.

Delta did not build the airlines alone, our nation built highways and airports, FAA and other government agencies that help build and promote air travel.

                                                The internet was another product of government initiative and ingenuity. You in the GOP seem to forget how vital the role of government is yet you still send people off to Washington in hopes of getting items of importance to you pushed through.

                                                Why have a party in government if not to pass laws reflecting your values? If you in the GOP are so against government, why are there conservatives on the government payroll?

                                                Exactly who do right wing legislators, judges and Executives work for? Surely not the government.

                                                CBO confirms that Democrats have taken federal spending to a new and higher
                                                plateau: 24.7% of GDP in 2009, 24.1% this year, and back to an estimated 24.3%
                                                in 2011. The modern historical average is about 20.5%, and less than that if you
                                                exclude the Reagan defense buildup of the 1980s that helped to win the Cold War
                                                and let Bill Clinton reduce defense spending to 3% of GDP in t 1990s.

                                                  The CBO also says that Obama cares will save this country near a trill over the next decade. But you probably deny that. Right? And again, Obama don't spend a cent without congress.

                                                    my point is you can't use the argument that the kennedys didnt find anything wrong in the returns because they were probably clean back then. What about 1994 thru 2009????? Those are the ones he gave McCain and McCain decided Palin was the safe choice.

The more information he releases, the "more it will give his oppostion a chance to use it against him"? Uh...yeah. He does know he's a politician...that he's running for president. Welcome to the real world Mitt.

                                                              Being a good father or husband is not just a good image to reflect for blacks ONEREALMAN. Values such as those cross the racial divide. He also had a passion for education and self advancement lacking in a lot of youth. Even if you believe he got into college because of afirmative action, that would not explain the fact he went on his own accord. No one plays the lottery just because it is available.

                                                              If this rational were valid then so to would it be valid to think more whites should be in college since you don't even need affirmative action, you are born into the majority........

Not as good as the Clinton years but certainly a far cry from the George W Bush years. And the numbers are steadily increasing as we emerge from a recession peak that hit only a few short years ago. The facts are all there, go check 'em out.

                                                                                        Mitt Romney should not be allowed to run for President the 14th Ammendment to the constitution says a candidate for President should be a "Native American". A native american is a person who's parents were BORN in the U.S. Romneys father was born in Mexico(his statement). And this dad came here when he was 6.

                                                                                        Obama is ineligible under the same ammendment because his father was born in Kenya. Obama is not eligible, and should be arrested and tried for treason. If the constitution is ignored than we must admit that we have fallen into socialism or comunnism and have a dictator for president.

Gossip rags pay half a million for pics of lohans nipples but proof of obamas foreign birth have been covered up so good no one can find evidence. The state of Hawaii is in on the cover up as well as Kenya and everyone that knows anyone in his family. Its all a ruse.

                                                                                            If he was not native born, the story would be worth tens of millions and by now mitt, trump, hillary, etc would have paid a kings ransom for this evidence to impeach Obama and try him.

                                                                                            You need help, or a samsclub membership to buy aluminum foil in bulk for your hats.

                                                                                              Oh the moment no one knows you as anything but possibly dad, brother, son, Obama is known as the President of The United States of America. Not bad for a muslim community organizer named Hussein with no birth certificate or college transcript

                                                                                              I would bet you are a card carrying baby jesus follwer with white skin born right in the heart of the US with a college degree from a reputible school, and you will never be elected den mother to even a gay eagle scout troop.

                                                                                              Save some of your anger for November. When Barack gets re elected you will need it for the next four years.

                                                                                              As for Mitt, he is a candidate for the office of POTUS, an office Barack has holds and is in the history books for holding win or lose so get over it and do something useful with your time on earth, mitt and Barack have.

How did this President manage to fool the Secret Service, FBI, CIA, NSA and all the other security services that vetted him? Are they all that stupid, or are you? Come on trouble, enlighten us. How did he do it? We're all curious.
