Rupert Cornwell: Europe-bashing by the Republicans is nothing new – just ask George W Bush

If Mitt Romney does become President, the first thing he might have to do is mend fences with Europe. The Old Continent may be a regular butt of criticism in the US – but rarely criticism as virulent and continuous as that dished out on the campaign trail by the 2012 Republican front-runner.
