Gibbs: Mitt Embarrassed the U.S.

Robert Gibbs, a senior adviser for President Obama’s reelection campaign, says that Mitt Romney's Olympic interview was “embarrassing for our country” and made him question if the Republican candidate is ready to be president. Romney told media in London that it was “hard to know just how well” the Olympics would go, and questioned the British dedication to the Games, saying, “Do they come together and celebrate the Olympic moment? That's something which we only find out once the Games actually begin.” British Prime Minister David Cameron shot back with a stab at Romney's part in the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in 2002. "Of course it's easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.”
