Romney Advisor: Obama Doesn't "Fully Appreciate" Our "Anglo-Saxon Heritage"

Is it just a "white thing" that Obama wouldn't understand? That sure seems to be the racially coded message by a Romney advisor who said that the president doesn't "fully appreciate" our "Anglo-Saxon heritage"–a heritage that Romney supposedly appreciates more. Another advisor stated that "left-winger" Obama is "very comfortable with American decline." The comments were made to London's Daily Telegraph:

As the Republican presidential challenger accused Barack Obama of appeasing America's enemies in his first foreign policy speech of the US general election campaign, advisers told The Daily Telegraph that he would abandon Mr Obama’s “Left-wing” coolness towards London.

In remarks that may prompt accusations of racial insensitivity, one suggested that Mr Romney was better placed to understand the depth of ties between the two countries than Mr Obama, whose father was from Africa.

“We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special,” the adviser said of Mr Romney, adding: “The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have.”

...“Obama is a Left-winger," said another. "He doesn’t value the Nato alliance as much, he’s very comfortable with American decline and the traditional alliances don’t mean as much to him. He wouldn’t like singing ‘Land of Hope and Glory'.”
