Actually, America IS “Anglo-Saxon”—We Just Can’t Say So

A man owes some loyalty to his ancestors, and to the near ethnic kin thereof. Of course, that applies to any man: to Mitt Romney, for example, though Romney would rather pluck out his eyes than publicly agree.
Hwæt! Mitt Romney is visiting London this week and is in full racial cringe mode for all he's worth (which is a very great deal).
A member of his advance party, a Romney "adviser" whose name and exact title are not known to us, told the London Daily Telegraph that:
We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and [Romney] feels that the Special Relationship is special … The White House didn't fully appreciate the shared history we have. Mitt Romney would restore 'Anglo-Saxon' relations between Britain and America, By Jon Swaine, July 24, 2012
This adviser and another, equally anonymous, further told the Daily Telegraph that:
Romney would seek to reinstate the Churchill bust displayed in the Oval Office by George W. Bush but returned to British diplomats by Mr. Obama when he took office in 2009. One said Mr. Romney viewed the move as "symbolically important" while the other said it was "just for starters," adding: "He is naturally more Atlanticist."
