‘Kiss My A**’: Media Fabricates ‘Gaffe’ After Romney’s Successful Israel, Poland Visits

You have to love the way this story is written by Politico’s Jonathan Martin — whose Indian name is He Who Does Oppo-Research On Private Citizens To Protect His Precious One.

Mitt Romney aide told reporters to “shove it” Tuesday morning after the American press corps here shouted questions at the presidential candidate.

As Romney was walking away from Pilsudski Square toward his vehicle, reporters asked him about his string of gaffes and whether he had any comment for Palestinians, some of whom took offense at the Republican’s suggestion Monday in Jerusalem that Israel’s economy is superior because of cultural advantages Israelis enjoy. Romney ignored the questions and got in his car.

But his traveling press secretary was furious.

“Kiss my ass; this is a holy site for the Polish people,” said aide Rick Gorka. “Show some respect.”

Gorka then told a reporter to “shove it.”

Gorka subsequently called a pair of reporters to apologize, saying he lost his cool.

“It was inappropriate,” Gorka said.


No reporter asked Romney anything.

What this gaggle of locusts did do, though, was to obnoxiously shout, scream, and holler questions from Pilsudski Square — just a hundred yards from where the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is laid. And there really should be a law that requires crybaby left-wingers to actually kiss an ass after doing something so craven and disrespectful.

The media’s behavior was childish and disrespectful, but most of all it was obviously an organized attempt to “create a moment” designed to hurt Romney by furthering The Narrative that his trip overseas has only been made up of gaffes.


When Obama’s Media Palace Guards conspired to scream questions at Romney they couldn’t have predicted a Romney aide would tell them to “kiss his ass,” but what they quite obviously did attempt to do was to create news, to create a moment, to create a piece video that would make Romney look bad in order to tie up the candidate’s trip in a Narrative Bow that allows them to go right back to talking about this so-called “string of gaffes.”

The plan was simple: By manufacturing video of reporters shouting questions about gaffes as Romney ignores them, the media had everything it needed to write a story about Romney’s gaffes. Since no event in Poland allowed the media to further The Gaffe Narrative, the corrupt media simply coordinated to one.

Don’t take my word for it – watch the video and decide for yourself.

Then compare it to this one:

    Its lucky I’m not working for him. I would have just flipped the bird and said “Fuck you all”

  4. yttik says:

    The biased media coverage has been astounding. Last night it was like, “Romney’s lack of foreign policy experience has really been on display after dozens of overseas gaffes.” WTH? That’s not even close to accurate.

  5. votermom says:

    I kinds want #KMA to be the new Romney slogan. I guess he’d never go for it.

  6. DeniseVB says:

    The “reporters” sounded like crazed paparazzi hunting down Lindsay Lohan’s latest oopsy.

  7. elliesmom says:

    I’d like to know what all of the “gaffes” were. The definition of “gaffe” -An unintentional act or remark causing embarrassment to its originator; a blunder.

    What did Romney say that was unintentional? He was critical of the Olympics, and he was largely right. Don’t ask him for his opinion if you don’t really want it. Referring to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was about as deliberate as you get. His comments about the disparages in standard of living being at least partly cultural is undeniably true unless you’re being deliberately blind to reality. And other than his aide using less than politically correct language to tell the press that their presence wasn’t appreciated, what happened in Poland was about a near perfect opportunity taken to get an important endorsement. Now giving the legally blind Prime Minister of Great Britain DVDs in a format he can’t use was a gaffe – or was it a deliberate insult?

    Romney’s new press secretary:

    • cj says:

      That’s what I want to see! I’ve had it with Obama’s lapdog media; name the VP & come out swinging. Is it still too early for that?

  10. angienc says:

    “Gorka” sounds like a Polish name to me.

    His only mistake was apologizing. Whatever he’s paid, Mitt should double it.

    And let’s not forget the Obots outraged the most about the “kiss my ass” are the ones who wear “Sarah Palin is a c*nt” t-shirts.

  11. Lulu says:

    When did the political press corps turn into the cast of “Jackass”?

  12. DeniseVB says:

    LOLz …. Just for fun, let’s name him Obama Supporter of the Day 😀

    • myiq2xu says:

      So Romney had an affair?

    • yttik says:

      So some meathead saw a picture of Romney on his girlfriend’s facebook page and went into a rage?

      That is so Romney’s fault. And Sarah Palin’s, too. Obviously that fine looking, upstanding male specimen would never have done such a thing if it weren’t for Mitt Romney.

  13. Karma says:

    A Today Show segment reporter introduced his Poland reel with a pregnant pause suggesting Mitt wasn’t ready to be Pres after running down the list of ‘gaffes’ on Romney’s trip.

    They just flat out insult the intelligence of their viewers.

    • yttik says:

      That is atrocious!

      Where I live we had a local case of a politician who flat out lied, libeled, slandered, his opponent in a political ad. It went all the way to the state SC and they ruled that it was legal. I couldn’t believe it, it’s legal to tell voters that your opponent has a criminal record when he doesn’t? Yep, apparently so.

    Romney needs to take some lessons from Christie 😀
