‘Kiss My A**’: Media Fabricates ‘Gaffe’ After Romney’s Successful Israel, Poland Visits
You have to love the way this story is written by Politico's Jonathan Martin -- whose Indian name is He Who Does Oppo-Research On Private Citizens To Protect His Precious One.
Mitt Romney aide told reporters to “shove it” Tuesday morning after the American press corps here shouted questions at the presidential candidate.
As Romney was walking away from Pilsudski Square toward his vehicle, reporters asked him about his string of gaffes and whether he had any comment for Palestinians, some of whom took offense at the Republican’s suggestion Monday in Jerusalem that Israel’s economy is superior because of cultural advantages Israelis enjoy. Romney ignored the questions and got in his car.
But his traveling press secretary was furious.
“Kiss my ass; this is a holy site for the Polish people,” said aide Rick Gorka. “Show some respect.”
Gorka then told a reporter to “shove it.”
Gorka subsequently called a pair of reporters to apologize, saying he lost his cool.
“It was inappropriate,” Gorka said.
First off, for He Who Does Oppo-Research On Private Citizens To Protect His Precious One to characterize what happened in this way is simply laughable:
reporters asked him about…
No reporter asked Romney anything. What this gaggle of locusts did do, though, was to obnoxiously shout, scream, and holler questions from Pilsudski Square -- just a hundred yards from where the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is laid. And for doing so, this disrespectful bunch of crybaby left-wingers can also kiss, uhm, mine.
The media's behavior was childish and disrespectful, but most of all it was obviously an organized attempt to "create a moment" designed to hurt Romney by furthering The Narrative that his trip overseas has only been made up of gaffes.
Even if the Romney guy hadn't popped off, if you watch the video of the moment (below) what you see is a conspiracy playing out where a gang of Obama-supporters disguised as journalists attempt to embarrass Romney by hurling shrill questions about what they perceive to be gaffes.
Of course, He Who Does Oppo-Research On Private Citizens To Protect His Precious One doesn't report these so-called "gaffes" as "perceived." Nope, he matter-of-facts it this way:
reporters asked him about his string of gaffes…
Yep, with just eight little words, He Who Does Oppo-Research On Private Citizens To Protect His Precious One manages to create two deceptions…
1. That reporters "asked" questions as opposed to the shrill screaming that actually took place.
2. That a "string of gaffes" occurred during Romney's trip, which is highly debatable. Other than inelegantly discussing the Olympics in Great Britain, from where I sit, Romney's trip has been very successful. But by declaring that a "string of gaffes" occurred so matter-of-factly, He Who Does Oppo-Research On Private Citizens To Protect His Precious One is able to convey to his readers that this is a settled matter and, most importantly, shut down debate.
When Obama's Media Palace Guards conspired to scream questions at Romney they couldn't have predicted a Romney aide would tell them to "kiss his ass," but what they quite obviously did attempt to do was to create news, to create a moment, to create a piece video that would make Romney look bad in order to tie up the candidate's trip in a Narrative Bow that allows them to go right back to talking about this so-called "string of gaffes."
The plan was simple: By manufacturing video of reporters shouting questions about gaffes as Romney ignores them, the media had everything it needed to write a story about Romney's gaffes. Since no event in Poland allowed the media to further The Gaffe Narrative, the corrupt media simply coordinated to one.
All that matters to the corrupt media is The Narrative, and if Romney won't cooperate by feeding the anti-Romney narrative, the corrupt media just goes ahead and creates something out of whole cloth.
Finally, here's the final act of deception He Who Does Oppo-Research On Private Citizens To Protect His Precious One closes his dishonest piece with:
Romney has not held a media availability for his traveling press corps since taking three questions outside 10 Downing Street in London last Thursday.
This is another narrative the media's now brewing to excuse their appalling behavior. The lie of omission He Who Does Oppo-Research On Private Citizens To Protect His Precious One commits is by not telling his readers that during this trip Romney has sat down for EXTENSIVE interviews with NBC's Brian Williams, and Wolf Blitzer and Piers Morgan of CNN.
Oh, and by the way, did you know consumer spending fell again? Nothing up my sleeve....
