These libs need to show some respect for the Polack buried in that tomb.

They could have asked yesterday when Governor Mitt Romney and his beautiful wife were at some monument to a Warsaw ghetto. I'm not sure why Poland has a monument to black people that don't want to work and just live in a ghetto, but that's Polacks for you I guess.

Also, it was good to see Romney upbraid this lousy union thug. Give him hell, Mitt!

palelizard: Actually, it may be the best thing for Romney's campaign if they don't get covered at all. Maybe that's what this is--the beginning of keeping the press so far back they give up and go home.


If the campaign let the press in, they'd notice that Romney was posthumously baptizing the soldier.

In Poland, "kiss my ass" is a term of endearment, referring to a simpler time when neighbors would kiss the forehead of one another's mules as a sign of respect and friendship. Damn liberal media always has to put their spin on everything.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a memorial erected to all the soldiers that Kerry forgot, and these New York elitist libtards want to desecrate that memory by asking Romney questions.

Step 1. Keep reporters cooped up inside a bus for hours on end.

Step 2. Refuse access to the candidate they are ostensibly there to cover.

Step 3. Have a hissy fit in front of reporters and imagine that that is not gonna become *the* story.

Step 4. _______

Step 5. Profit?

/Really, really bad at this.
//At this point I'm imagining Romney took the lowest bid offered on campaign talent and the guys who got the contract subbed the work out to a former call center in India.

FTFA: On Monday, Fox News host Greta Van Susteren wrote on her blog, "There has been no press access to Governor Romney since we landed in Poland. We (press) are in a holding pattern (I can't help but feel a bit like the press is a modified petting zoo since we are trapped in a bus while Polish citizens take pictures of us.)"

Gotta suck when even the GOP cheerleaders are complaining about lack of access.

BuckTurgidson: A "holy site"? So holy you staged a campaign event at it?

After reporters protested, pointing out that Romney has only taken "but three questions" during his entire trip to London, Israel and Poland, Gorka said, "Kiss my a**. This is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect." The back and forth continued for a few seconds until Gorka ended the conversation with, "Why don't you shove it?"

A veritable Möbius strip of FAIL.


Rmoney was probably trying to get the names of the 'unknown soldiers' so he could, you know, posthumously baptize them...
Is it possible that being a Mormon is like a Pokemon game.. .where if you collect them all and get them appropriately baptized then you 'level up'... ok, maybe it's more like scientology... with posthumous baptizism.

cameroncrazy1984: CorporatePerson: cameroncrazy1984: CorporatePerson: To be fair, most of those questions were stupid as hell. Why are our journalists asking him nonsense like "Do you feel your gaffes are overshadowing your trip?" What kind of a dumbfark question is that?

Why not ask him about policy? I'm much more interested in hearing what this guy is planning for America, instead of stupid horse race shiat that ultimately doesn't matter.

Romney has repeatedly said he won't talk about his policies until he gets into office.

So ask him again. And again. And again.

It's not as if he's going to give you an answer to "Hurr don't you think your gaffes are so bad?" You can't blame a guy for refusing to answer a stupid question. Why not ask him a question that a reasonable candidate would answer?


Why can't Romney answer a stupid question? Jeez, it's not like he was asked something hard like "What newspapers do you read?" It's just a "No" and move on. This press secretary sucks at his job and got angry. Not smart.


Agreed.

Still, you gotta admit that creating a news making gaffe while you're trying to prevent your candidate from answering questions about previous news making gaffes *is* kinda zen.

It's like meta, ya know.

Asking him questions that require self-reflection and candor are also a useful means of gauging (or re-re-re-confirming) how in or out of touch he is with reality and with his own understanding of the perceptions of other people about him. A person who's not capable of self-analysis will not be a good leader.

Besides, Rmoney has already made his entire policy schedule very clear:
1. Tax cuts for the rich.
2. Oh my gosh! What is that distraction metaphor behind you?? *POOF* [Runaway]

Frankly, I would think it another shrewd move, only meant to enrage those lefty media folks.
