Mitt Romney seems to be putting his foot in his mouth at every turn this week, giving Joe Biden a good run for his money. First Romney insulted the Brits with a remark about a less than stellar start up to the Olympics. He was able to walk that one back in time, it appears. The Mayor of London did make fun of him, but Oh Well….. Then he waded in up to his ears by saying something about shared “Anglo-Saxon heritage”. The Democrats went ballistic. Anglo-Saxon heritage? What gives?
Well, not to chose sides but what do we call it then? This country was founded by people from England. the Pilgrims, the Puritans, the Jamestown folks led by Captain John Smith were all Anglo Saxons from England. I heard it my entire life and no one bothered to tell me that it was now politically incorrect to speak of Anglo Saxons. What should be be calling them?
