    Has anyone told the Tea Party that Mitt Romney polls best overseas in Kenya?

    Also it seems Mitt did not make a good impression in France, despite doing more door to door than than the last 6 years in the US.

    Like OKDem, I find the fact that of the countries listed, Romney polls best in Kenya, dripping with irony.

    Also a little ironic (but not nearly as much) is that of the countries listed, France polls best for Pres. Obama.

    Kenya obviously the biggest surprise there.

    People of a different tribe than President Obama’s ancestors seem to be even more hostile to him than the Tea Party. Or it is jealousy.

    No, no. The real surprise is that Pakistanis think they will be better off under Romney. I don’t think they fathom what an anathema their govt. has become to ANY U.S. President.

    I’m surprised Mitt didn’t cut a last minute commercial about Obama’s 72% vote share in France.

    Oh wait, I forgot: “je me’appelle Mitt.”
