Romney Returns Home After Troubled Overseas Trip

Bloomberg: "Mitt Romney returns from an erratic, six-day overseas tour with no discernible boost to his foreign policy credentials, and facing fresh questions about his campaign operation as it enters a critical period."

"While the presumed Republican nominee's string of gaffes and international mini-incidents may not sway U.S. voters, whose chief concern is the domestic economy, it has reignited some Republicans' concerns that the troubles Romney encountered abroad are indicative of his campaign's weaknesses at home."

Politico: "As discrete episodes, Romney's ill-timed criticism of Great Britain's preparations for the Olympics and his matter-of-fact claim of the cultural superiority of Israelis over Palestinians won't do damage to him among voters. But what they do, particularly for voters just now engaging in the race, is offer more examples about an ill-at-ease man who says odd or inappropriate things."
