If Morgan thought that the Left was going to scream at him before, well…
[CNN anchor Brooke] Baldwin asked Morgan for his thought on Romney saying that he found London’s lack of security preparation for the Olympics “disconcerting.” Morgan said he thought Romney was correct.
“It’s no secret over here that for the last three weeks the security around the Olympics has been a shambles,” said Morgan. “The outside firm they got in to run it has been all over the place – they didn’t have enough people and the army had to be drafted in. So, Mitt Romney was only saying exactly what has been happening.”
For those who don’t speak British English, calling something a ‘shambles’ may be a bit more pointed than American English speakers might realize: I’m not sure that Piers Morgan meant to compare the situation to a Elizabethan era butcher’s shop… but I’m not sure that he didn’t mean to do that, either.
PS: Just saw this. See Jim Geraghty for more shamble-worthy Olympic problems.
