[T]op Romney strategist Stuart Stevens later held a gaggle with reporters (damage control?) after Romney's speech to push back against the perception the trip hasn't gone well. The highlights, [NBC's Garrett Haake] notes, include Stevens pronouncing the trip a "a great success, generally."So there you go. It must be true.
In other news about how successful the trip was, Romney's traveling press secretary Rick Gorka yelled at reporters today before Romney's big speech in Warsaw.
When members of the press tried to ask Romney about some of the mishaps on his trip, his traveling press secretary Rick Gorka verbally dressed down reporters. Here's a transcript of the questions and Gorka's response:Ha ha what a great campaign! A great candidate with a great team! I can't wait to not vote for him!
CNN: "Governor Romney are you concerned about some of the mishaps of your trip?"
NYT: "Governor Romney do you have a statement for the Palestinians?"
Washington Post: "What about your gaffes?"
NYT: "Governor Romney do you feel that your gaffes have overshadowed your foreign trip?"
CNN: "Governor Romney just a few questions sir, you haven't taken but three questions on this trip from the press!"
Gorka: "Show some respect"
NYT: "We haven't had another chance to ask a question..."
Gorka: "Kiss my ass. This is a Holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect."
Moments later, Gorka told Jonathan Martin, a reporter for Politico, to "shove it." About a half-hour later, the aide called reporters to apologize.
Finally: Do you want to find out who Romney's running mate is five seconds before the rest of the world? THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT! lulz.
