Romney camp disputes 'Anglo-Saxon' comment

Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday called a Mitt Romney adviser’s comment that the Republican candidate better understands the UK-USA relationship because of a shared “Anglo-Saxon heritage” — a notion Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul insisted was “not true” — a “disturbing start” to Romney’s foreign trip.

“The comments reported this morning are a disturbing start to a trip designed to demonstrate Governor Romney’s readiness to represent the United States on the world’s stage,” Biden said in a statement. “Not surprisingly, this is just another feeble attempt by the Romney campaign to score political points at the expense of this critical partnership. This assertion is beneath a presidential campaign.”

Earlier Wednesday, the Romney campaign disputed the anonymous “Anglo-Saxon heritage” quote reported in London’s Daily Telegraph.

“It’s not true,” Saul, Romney’s press secretary, said in an email to CBSNews.com. “If anyone said that, they weren’t reflecting the views of Governor Romney or anyone inside the campaign.”
