Mitt Romney on France

By

I knew there was a reason I like Mitt Romney so much. The Boston Globe reports:

Speaking to educators, Romney warned that if the United States does not improve its schools, ''we'll end up being the France of the 21st century."

''We cannot continue to have an excellence gap with the rest of the world and intend to remain the economic superpower and military superpower of the planet. That's just not going to happen," said Romney. ''We're in a position where unless we take action, we'll end up being the France of the 21st century: a lot of talk, but not a lot of strength behind it in terms of economic capability."

The French Embassy in Washington was not amused.
