  • Romney Aide Admonishes Rude Reporters, NBC Treats It as a Gaffe

    On Tuesday's NBC Today, campaign correspondent Peter Alexander attempted to spin bad behavior by reporters covering Mitt Romney's trip to Poland as a new controversy for the presidential campaign: "This morning, after reporters tried to shout questions to Romney while he left a plaza near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier....A campaign spokesman angrily intervened....The spokesman later called reporters to apologize." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] The report featured a clip of one female reporter screaming at Romney: "Governor Romney, do you feel that your gaffes have overshadowed your foreign trip?!" A campaign aide...

    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.”

  • Wash. Post, NY Times furious at Romney for demolishing their false Israeli-Palestinian narrative

    With headlines blazing and printer's ink aplenty, the Washington Post and the New York Times turned downright apoplectic about Mitt Romney's comment in Jerusalem that differences in "culture" are the key to Israel greatly outpacing the Palestinian territories in economic performance. "Romney angers Palestinians with remarks on economy," reads a six-page headline in the Post. "With Jerusalem Comment, Romney Raises Sparks," blares a six-column headline in the Times. The headlines are a tip-off that these two papers deem Romney's remark an unpardonable affront to their own narratives of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. For years, they have blamed Israel for prolonging the...
  • Does Walesa Embrace of Romney Mean Poland Dislikes Obama?

    When President Obama visited Poland last year, Prime Minister Donald Tusk told his American guest, “We feel that you are one of us.” He didn’t go as far today, at least not publicly, following a meeting with Mitt Romney. But former Polish president Lech Walesa, a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, did give his seal of approval to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. “I wish you to be successful because this success is needed to the United States, of course, but to Europe and the rest of the world, too,” Walesa said through a translator. “Gov. Romney, get your...

    Reporters accompanying presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney yelled questions at Romney about his so-called mistakes and gaffes on his foreign trip as the candidate left the Polish Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw today.The barrage prompted one of Romney's press aides, Rick Gorka, to lose his cool at reporters. Of course, those reporters are making the aide's profanity the story and not their own incredible rudeness.A transcript of the incident via CNN's Jim Acosta in Warsaw:CNN: "Governor Romney are you concerned about some of the mishaps of your trip?

    WARSAW, POLAND — Fresh from a warm embrace from iconic Polish leader Lech Walesa, Mitt Romney will wrap up a three-country trip overseas Tuesday with a major speech that he hopes will send a message that he's tough and more willing to take a harder line with rogue nations than President Barack Obama is. Romney arrived in Warsaw late Monday after a day in Gdansk, where he enjoyed the most enthusiastic reception of his six-day trip, which was marred by controversies at the first two stops, in London and Jerusalem. He was greeted in Gdansk by crowds that swarmed in...

    Pelosi: Republicans using Israel policy to distract Jewish votersBy Meghashyam Mali - 07/28/12 04:31 PM ET House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) defended President Obama’s record on Israel, accusing Republicans of using the issue to distract Jewish voters from the party’s economic policies. “Many of the Republicans are using Israel as an excuse, what they really want are tax cuts for the wealthy. So Israel, that can be one reason they put forth,” said Pelosi on Bloomberg’s “Political Capital,” according to a transcript of her remarks. “That’s why some of the Republican Jewish supporters are really active,” replied host Al...

  • Romney arrives, days after telling Israelis they deserve better than they get from Obama

    Days after telling Israelis that they deserve better treatment than they have had from the United States during Barack Obama’s presidency, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney arrived in Israel on Saturday night for talks with Israeli leaders, a meeting with the Palestinian prime minister, and a fundraiser. Just as candidate Obama did four years ago, challenger Romney is visiting Israel in good part to try to maximize support for his presidential campaign among American Jewish supporters. Sensitive bilateral issues will also be on the agenda, however, notably the shared US-Israel concern about how to thwart Iran’s nuclear drive. Obama was...

    A Romney campaign official has blasted Boris Johnson, the London Mayor, as an ‘eccentric, odd fellow’ whose public attack on the Republican candidate was ‘unbecoming’ and an indication of his bias towards President Barack Obama. The official said that Prime Minister David Cameron’s ‘wisecrack’ about it being harder to stage an Olympic Games in London than ‘in the middle of nowhere’ – an apparent reference to Salt Lake City, where Romney oversaw the 2002 Winter Olympics – was ‘probably appropriate, albeit awkward’ and unfortunate for Romney ‘Johnson on the other hand lived up to his reputation as an eccentric, odd...

    (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will sign a bill to strengthen U.S.-Israeli military cooperation on Friday on the eve of a visit to Israel by his Republican presidential challenger, Mitt Romney. Obama will seek to stress his commitment to Israel's security for American Jewish voters at a White House ceremony that appeared timed to upstage Romney, who has accused the president of undermining U.S.-Israeli ties. Congress passed the legislation, the U.S.-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act, with broad support from Obama's Democrats and Republicans last week. "The bill deepens our security cooperation with Israel by expanding our military assistance and providing...
