Video: Romney aide cordially invites media to kiss his ass
Hot Air ^ | JULY 30, 2012 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 07/31/2012 1:57:34 PM PDT by RobinMasters

They were at Poland’s tomb of the unknown soldier; the questions were shrill, irritating, and dumb; and aide Rick Gorka lost his temper for maybe eight seconds, then apologized. Simple ingredients, but that’s all you need for a tasty summer stew of manufactured outrage that keeps the news cycle churning. September can’t get here soon enough, my friends.

Alternate headline: “Conservative support for Romney now at 100 percent.”

You listen to the audio of those pigs yelling at Romney and it’s no wonder the aide told them to kiss his ***.

Inviting the news media to ‘kiss my ass’ can only gain Willard popularity points.

Just shows how disrespecful and biased the MSM is. They have no sense of decorum or respect for the solemnity of the place.

I read some of the comments on HuffPo this morning that accompanied their biased story on this issue. Many of the comments had to do with complaints that Romney is not giving the press a chance to ask questions. This from the acolytes of a POTUS who has NEVER, EVER, in almost 4 years, had a press conference that wasn’t scripted, or had his planted presstitutes asking softball questions. How freaking hypocritical can you be. God forgive me, but I really hate these people!!

Conservative support for Romney now at 100 percent.

Author must not read FR much. Here he's hated only second to Obama by most, some more so.

Bravo for Mitt and his team! Let’s hope he keeps pushing back against these jackals and is not the punching bag that GWB was. My advice would be to open up a can of whoop ass every now and then, just to keep the leftist media attack dogs off balance.

I have not been a Romney supporter during the primaries. I thought him too RINO for what this nation needs to rebuild. And he still might be exactly that. But in one area Mitt Romney has been 5 Star: his campaigning.

Romney is really doing some smashmouth campaigning against Obama, keeping the focus on the Obama failures. And credit to his team - they’ve been outstanding in respoding rapid fire to the Obama obfuscations. So far, he’s been doing just great running his campaign and not leeting the Media set the terms. Good for him, and hope he keeps it up.

In 1993 Gov. Pete Wilson of California had some advice for Democrats "They can kiss my rear end, if they can leap that high."

That's how it should be said.

Isn’t that a dignified manner in which to conduct oneself. And that would make one popular why? I know no one who condones conducting oneself in that manner. It is embarrassing.

What is embarrassing is the media jackals showing no respect for this solemn site. It’s just a gotcha game for them. The concepts of dignity and respect never crossed their mind. Do you think this group of “reporters” would have treated Obama this way? Just curious.

Of course not and I agree. The media showed dreadful disrespect considering where they were. It is embarrassing as an American to be judged by their behaviour.I do wish you would apologize to all self respecting jackals everywhere for comparing them to the media there.

Soros has said the US is blocking his Open society -NWO agenda and needs to be knocked off her pedestal. Breitbart also said there is a global movement against the US. Obama is seen as the means to the end. Good to hear Romney people are giving it back.

I don’t hate them ... they are just stupid and blind to their own hypocrisy. If it had been their precious Obama ... they would have said, “What!? Is the entire press pool made up of Faux news?” And, “Have some respect...he’s the president!” And, “Those questions weren’t serious...” And, “These people should be kicked out of the press pool!”

Has Obama EVER been yelled at like this? This famously reminds me of what used to happen to Reagan. Mitt should just cup his ear.

Even when brought to their attention they giggle and pooh-pooh it as an honest mistake.

Our VIPs are a little wary of trying to speak Polish ever since President Carter told an audience there, "I desire the Poles carnally."

If it had been Clinton saying it then in that case . . . .

I’m beginning to like Romney. Could I have been wrong about him? He seems to realize that he needs the base if he’s to win. The three or four “undecideds” won’t win it for him. I hope he governs that way if he wins.

And that would make one popular why?

Really - isn't that obvious?Could it be because the media consistently polls below congress, lawyers and herpes in terms of their popularity with the public?

And they are so unpopular because people know they have their left wing screeds written before they ask their first question.

So yes, when they trot out their usual 'when did you stop beating your wife' a great many of us believe 'kiss my ass' is just the right response.

Yeah, Mitt’s almost as bad as Reagan, divorced and a former democrat, Screen Actors Guild member and union stooge ....

http://2012.republican-candidates.org/Romney/Issues.php
In 2012 (above) Romney claims to be pro-life and supports the 2nd Amendment.
As far as his supporting “socialized medicine”: http://www.charismanews.com/us/33693-mitt-romney-vows-to-overturn-obamacare Romney has vowed to seek the repeal the (so-called) `Affordable Care Act.’
As far as being a “big government liberal,” gee—successful businessman, and on and on: He can’t be any worse than Comrade Obama.
At least read his stands on the issues (again, above) unless you and all the other political Luddites here who don’t hate him but are simply determined to hold your breath until you turn blue, and libel anyone who appeals to evicting Obama by practical means, and blah blah blah ....

He should be fired.

If he had restricted himself to saying: "Shame, shame, on you."

"The world will see you for the jackals you are."

He would have still captured our support, without surrendering the high road.

I guess it boils down to what option is the least of the two evils in November:

Liberal through and through, or

Marxist Traitor through and through

False dichotomy. There are other options.

I don't consider Mitt evil. Just wrong, based on his history in office.

BTW, advocating voting for a candidate that is liberal because he's not as bad as the other guy isn't going to win conservative votes. It will, however, encourage the GOP to run more liberal candidates.

Romney as a businessman should know the importance of establishing your "brand". If he doesn't show some leadership now, when?

What would Reagan do?

Reagan would have done everything differently than Romney. And he would have done it with dignity and he would have left friends behind when he left his travels. He always did. And I am not going to hold my breath waiting for Romney to show any kind of leadership. Are you? As you said, if not now, when? He is too late even now. How do you overcome this disastrous trip?

I agree w/you about Reagan and, also, a good reminder about him. The two candidates running couldn’t shine Reagan’s shoes. Nothing about them is pro-America - socialistic healthcare ALONE proves that.
