Romney Offends Italians

Mitt Romney disparaged Italians with remarks at a campaign event in Virginia today, the Huffington Post reports.

Said Romney: "If you're an entrepreneur and you're thinking of starting up a business, you need to ask yourself: Is America on the same road as Greece? Are we on the path to an economic crisis like that we're seeing in Europe, in Italy and Spain?"

Italian politicians were quick to rebuff the statements, which were, The Guardian reported, given "front-page prominence" there.
