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:
