#Romneyshambles: Rick Gorka, Mitt Romney’s traveling press secretary “lost his cool and cursed at reporters who attempted to ask questions of the Republican presidential candidate in a public plaza near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw,” CNN reports. Gorka said, “kiss my ass, this is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect.” He then told a reporter to “shove it.”
Politico later reported Gorka subsequently called two reporters to apologize. Wow, Mitt Romney continues to implode and show us that he’s a joke on the international stage. Even Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren complained she felt like being in a “petting zoo” at the treatment of Mitt Romney and staff meted out to the U.S. journalists.
Mitt Romney should have stayed home. Clearly he is not presidential material. What would he do if he had gone to Africa. Um, wait. That’s not the kind of crowd he wants to be around.
Reaction on Twitter:
Next Romney campaign commercial: “kiss my ass!” “I’m Mitt Romney and I approve this message.”
