His, and his staff's, foreign relation skills just plain suck. Yeah....he'd be a great president. First Romney himself pisses off the Brits with his Olympic security remarks and now this yahoo curses at the media. Nice.


Mitt Romney Spokesman Tells Reporters 'Kiss My ***' at Polish Holy Site

WARSAW, Poland - A Mitt Romney spokesman reprimanded reporters traveling with the candidate on his six-day foreign trip, telling them to "kiss my a**" after they shouted questions from behind a rope line.

As Romney left the site of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw and walked toward his motorcade parked in Pilsudski Square, reporters began shouting questions from the line where campaign staffers had told them to stay behind, prompting traveling press secretary Rick Gorka to tell a group of reporters to "kiss my a**" and "shove it."

He later apologized.

As Romney wrapped up his visit to the historical site, a CNN reporter had yelled, "Governor Romney, are you concerned about some of the mishaps of your trip."

"Governor Romney, do you have a statement for the Palestinians?" a New York Times reporter shouted.

"What about your gaffes?" yelled a Washington Post reporter, referring to a number of missteps the candidate has made during his trip, including one in which he said there were some "disconcerting" developments leading up to the London Olympics, drawing the ire of the British media, and another suggesting that culture was to blame for the difference in economic success between Israelis and Palestinians.

The Romney campaign has called the reports on the candidate's remarks about Palestinians a "gross mischaracterization."

Gorka told reporters answering questions to "show some respect."

"This is a holy site for the Polish people," he added.

"We haven't had another chance to ask a question," one reporter noted to Gorka.

Gorka told another journalist to "shove it."

Romney last took questions - three - from the traveling press corps Thursday in London. Romney did not address the media that's flying with him on any of the three charter flights - two that lasted more than four hours - either. Romney has conducted several television interviews during the trip.

Gorka later called both reporters to apologize for his remarks, telling one that he was "inappropriate."

ABC News reached out to Gorka for an additional comment but did not immediately receive a response.

Some, not all but some, Republicans actually WANT a president who is going to offend foreign leaders.  They want some guy who will walk into a room and take charge and boss other countries around and be tough like that.  Someone who will mistake "leader of the United States" for "Leader of the free world" and hold himself above all other nations. Like a bully.

Are they the same people who are bitching because Obama didn't get us out of the wars started by the last buffoon who couldn't keep his mouth shut? There is absolutely no reason to be insulting and rude to our NATO partners. The people who think we should be probably haven't ever stepped outside of their podunk little towns.

Quoting Momniscient:
