An aide claims that Mitt Romney values America's "special" Anglo-Saxon ties more than Barack Obama does. (4:19)

>> Stephen: WELCOME TO THE REPORT, EVERYBODY.

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, EVERYBODY.

>> STEPHEN!

STEPHEN!

STEPHEN!

STEPHEN!

STEPHEN!

STEPHEN!

STEPHEN!

( CHEERS )

>> Stephen: FOLKS, YOU ARE AN EMOTIONAL DEFIBRILATOR.

NATION, I KNOW HE'S BEEN IN OFFICE FOR A FEW YEARS NOW, BUT

BARACK OBAMA JUST DOESN'T SEEM AMERICAN TO ME.

( LAUGHTER ).

AND YOU KNOW WHAT?

MITT ROMNEY AGREES WITH ME.

>> HIS WHOLE PHILOSOPHY IS AN UPSIDE DOWN PHILOSOPHY THAT DOES NOT COMPORT WITH THE AMERICAN EXPERIENCE.

IT'S A VERY STRANGE AND IN SOME RESPECTS FOREIGN TO THE AMERICAN

EXPERIENCE TYPE OF PHILOSOPHY.

>> Stephen: YEAH, HE JUST-- HE JUST SEEMS FOREIGN.

AND I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHY,

YOU KNOW.

MAYBE IT WAS HIS WEIRD MIDDLE NAME OR HIS FOREIGN DAD OR THE FACT THAT OBAMA HAS A DIFFERENT...

YOU KNOW...

( LAUGHTER ) WAY OF MOVING HIS HAND IN FRONT OF HIS FACE.

BUT NOW, THANKS TO THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN, I THINK I'VE FIGURED IT OUT.

YOU SEE, TODAY, MITT IS EMBARKING ON A WORLDWIDE TOUR OF THREE COUNTRIES.

HE PACKED HIS BAGS, GOT HIS SHOTS, AND STRAPPED HIS DOG TO THE ROOF OF HIS JET.

( APPLAUSE ) NOW, MITT'S FIRST STOP IS LONDON TO SOLVAGE AMERICA'S SPECIAL

CONNECTION WITH THE ENGLISH PEOPLE.

AS A ROMNEY AIDE TOLD LONDON'S "TELEGRAPH," THE WHITE HOUSE

DIDN'T FULLY APPRECIATE THE SHARED HISTORY WE HAVE BECAUSE WE ARE PART OF AN ANGLO-SAXON

HERITAGE, AND ROMNEY FEELS THAT THE SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP IS SPECIAL.

( LAUGHTER ) WELL SAID.

I WOULD GO FURTHER AND ARGUE THAT THE SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP IS ALSO A RELATIONSHIP.

( LAUGHTER ) NOW, OF COURSE, FOLKS, OF COURSE, THE MEDIA GOTCHA-RAZZI

ARE SAYING THAT ANGLO-SAXON IS SOME SORT OF RACIAL CODE WORD AS IN WHITE ANGLO-SAXON

PROTESTANTS, OKAY.

BUT MITT'S CAMPAIGN ISN'T SAYING HE'S A WASP.

THEY NEVER SAID WHITE OR PROTESTANT.

THEY'RE JUST SAYING THAT HE'S AN ASS.

A BIG ONE.

THIS IS IMPORTANT, FOLKS.

BUT I DON'T THINK THIS GOES FAR ENOUGH.

I MEAN, WE MUST ACKNOWLEDGE NOT ONLY OUR COMMON ANGLO-SAXON HERITAGE BUT WHAT ABOUT OUR

SHARED BATTLE OF HASTINGS HERITAGE WHEN OUR SHARED FRENCH NORMAN HERITAGE CONQUERED OUR

SHARED ANGLO-SAXON HER TEG BY SHOOTING AN ARROW THROUGH OUR SHARED KING HAROLD'S EYE.

OBAMA DIDN'T GET THAT.

AND, HEY, I DON'T SEE RACE BUT I SEE SIXTH NORMAN GERMANIC TRIBAL ASSOCIATION.

I DON'T EVEN SEE MY OWN RACE.

PEOPLE TELL ME I'M A CELT AND I BELIEVE THEM.

MEANWHILE, MEANWHILE, FOLKS,

WHEN IT COMES TO THE ANGLO-SAXON EXPERIENCE, ROMNEY NOT ONLY WALKS THE WALK.

HE TALKS THE TALK.

JUST LISTEN TO HIS LATEST STUMP SPEECH.

>> THANK YOU, AND GOD BLESS
