You’ve got to feel for this family. Their tragedy is so public, and I’m sure there are thousands of requests for them to do interviews like this. Let’s hope the interviews they do take focus on Jim’s life, and not the politics of his murder.
Politically speaking, this is nothing but a win for Romney. The public hates the press, and voters love it when they’re put in their place.
The traveling press secretary for Mitt Romney 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 Tuesday.
Here’s a transcript of the questions and Gorka’s response:
CNN: “Governor Romney are you concerned about some of the mishaps of your trip?
NYT: “Governor Romney do you have a statement for the Palestinians?
Washington Post: “What about your gaffes?
NYT: “Governor Romney do you feel that your gaffes have overshadowed your foreign trip?”
CNN: “Governor Romney just a few questions sir, you haven’t taken but three questions on this trip from the press!
Gorka: “Show some respect”
NYT: “We haven’t had another chance to ask a question…”
Gorka: “Kiss my ass. This is a Holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect.”
Moments later, Gorka told Jonathan Martin, a reporter for Politico, to “shove it.”
Unfortunately, Gorka fell victim to the “lame-stream” media tractor beam and apologized for his behavior. It’s the media that needs to do the apologizing.
The media manufactured the narrative that Romney committed multiple “gaffe’s” during his tour of Europe for one purpose only. They have to take the focus off of Obama; his falling poll numbers, the collapse of the economy, the job numbers, etc. If they were to report the truth about where he’s taken our nation since being elected messiah in 2008, the informed public would be picketing the White House.
Instead, they paint a sour picture of Romney as a potential leader of the free world. It’s all they know how to do right now, and it smacks of desperation.
Good thing it’s summertime. Go back to your sand castles.
