Romney disavows Anglo-Saxon remarks but White House is on it like white on rice

The interesting thing about presidential campaigns is that when advisors speak, their words or context often are sprinkled with small fingers of doubt.

Then both sides scramble about like field mice … a constant game of stimulus and response … more spinning than the globe sitting on a top perched on a whirling merry-go-round.

No wonder we all get dizzy.

The U.K.’s Daily Telegraph reported today that that one of Mitt Romney’s advisers said: “We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special. The White House doesn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have.”

While we live in a world of color, racism usually is black and white. So naturally that comment ignited accusations of racism – not least of all from Obama guru David Axelrod.

The implication from some people’s perspective was that Romney is better equipped to understand the relationship between London and the U.S. because he is of Anglo-Saxon heritage and Obama’s father was born, well, in Kenya.

The Romney campaign fully denied the Daily Telegraph report.

Mitt will be in London for the Olympics and likely won’t be rooting for Kenya to medal in anything.
