'Kiss my ass': Romney aide in new gaffe

2012-07-31 16:59

Warsaw - Mitt Romney's aide on Tuesday added a fresh incident to the Republican White House contender's growing list of blunders, telling journalists to "kiss my ass" as they chased the candidate for answers.

Romney's spokesperson Rick Gorka lost his cool when journalists pressed Romney, who was visiting a war memorial in Warsaw, over the embarrassments that have plagued him during a tour that has also taken him to London and Jerusalem.

Gorka also told a reporter to "shove it", before calling journalists half an hour later to apologise.

Blunders have dogged Romney ahead of the 6 November presidential election.

In Britain, Romney - who ran the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City - ruffled feathers by questioning the security readiness for the London games.

In Israel he backed Israel's right to thwart Iran's nuclear ambitions, but drew fire from the Palestinians for endorsing Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state.

    These republicans, the world over are their own worst enemies considering the lack of a Cerebral Cortex.

      Oh dear, it the squeegee Bathroom mop pusher whose only posts on this forum are to call everyone he disagrees with stupid. He exhibits one of the primary characteristics of idiots - an inflated sense of his own intellectual superiority.

      Squeegee, does it build you up somehow to be rude and douchey to others?

    So what's wrong with calling Jerusalem the capital of the Jewish state? It is exactly that and was so for more than a thousand years before Mohammed invented Islam.

      Apart from that haven't we all wanted to say something similar to journalists?
