"He told CNN's Piers Morgan on Thursday evening that the Olympics would be “terrific”, blessed with “great weather” and full of “enthusiasm on the part of the people here in London”.
The previous evening he told NBC that he had seen “disconcerting” signs that made it “hard to know just how well it will turn out” at the London games, prompting a sharp rejoinder from David Cameron.
The Republican challenger also raised eyebrows on Thursday by referring to Ed Miliband with the American-style honorific “Mr Leader” and appearing to breach protocol by disclosing that he had met Sir John Sawers, the Secret Intelligence Service chief. "

I'm not going to see any of the action, just visiting my old roommate who is studying in GB and is doing her practical training in London. I couldn't go any other time this summer, so now I get to see the Olympic London! I've been to London before, and I'm actually enthusiastic about seeing how the city has changed for the Games, even if i don't see the Olympics.
I must add, I don't hate the Games, just don't watch sports in general. I appreciate the spirit of the Olympics, the way it brings nations together, I personally just prefer doing sports to watching them.
