Mitt Romney began a foreign tour on the wrong foot, with his campaign forced to dismiss a report that an adviser accused Obama of not understanding the shared “Anglo-Saxon heritage” of Britain and the United States.
“We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special,” The Daily Telegraph quoted the adviser as saying. “The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have.”
