So, the whole point of having the press around is so that they can report on whatever it is that a person is doing, which sometimes requires them to ask questions. Mitt Romney does not understand this concept, and neither do the people in his camp.
Romney continued his disastrous foreign trek this week, visiting Poland where he not only slandered the president, but looked terrible in front of reporters from large outlets like the New York Times.
The move came just after the Republican candidate was called racist by Palestinians, for his comment on their economy, and upset London for questioning their safety efforts in hosting the summer Olympics. If that weren’t bad enough, Romney’s spokesperson—Rick Gorka— went off on the media for asking a question during a visit to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which is dedicated to unidentified Polish soldiers who fought in World War 1.
As one unknown female journalist yelled out “Gov. Romney, do you have a statement for the Palestinians?” another followed suit with more inquires. Before they could turn off their cameras and handheld recorders, Gorka went in for the kill. “This is a holy site for the Polish people, show some respect!” he said…just before uttering “Kiss my a**!” when one reporter explained that they have had no other opportunities to address Romney.
Gorka later apologized, but he’s already put the nail in the coffin of what has been one international misstep after another.
Perhaps Romney should re-think his approach when dealing with the press. He should also expect to be routinely peppered with questions, being that he’s running for president and all.
