Mitt Romney - la verité!

I've just read this article on the BBC news website. It concerns American Republican Presidential Frontrunner, Mitt Romney and the fact that one of his opponents, Newt Gingrich, has criticised him for SPEAKING FRENCH.

So what did he say that was so offensive to the ears of his fellow republicans?

Did he call for independence for Quebec?


Did he say that France should no longer be a part of the Eurozone Bailout?


Did he suggest that French colonialism in Africa was a good thing?


He said, and I'm quoting here, "Je m'appelle Mitt."

What kind of people would see it as a disadvantage that the Head of State of the most powerful country in the world might be able to speak a foreign language?

Here is the video:

There was a good Mitt Romney joke for linguists on the News Quiz on Radio 4 last night.

Mitt Romney goes to Germany.

"Hello", he says, "I'm Mitt Romney."

"Where's Romney?" replies the German person.
