Earlier this week, the Australians issued a statement clarifying Foreign Minister Bob Carr’s remarks after Romney told donors that Carr met with him and sees an “America in decline.”
Romney also has faced criticism in the Jewish press abroad for scheduling a fundraiser on Tisha B’Av, a Jewish fasting day that commemorates the destruction of two temples in Jerusalem. And Romney was forced to distance himself from an unnamed campaign adviser quoted in the Daily Telegraph newspaper saying that Romney believes the U.S. relationship with Britain is special because of shared “Anglo Saxon heritage” and that the current White House doesn’t appreciate that shared history.
