Romney aide cusses out disrespectful reporters in Poland

Photo credit: The Takeaway

The traveling press secretary for Mitt Romney lost his cool and cursed at reporters who attempted to ask questions of the Republican presidential candidate in a public plaza near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw Tuesday.

After Romney paid his respects to Poland’s war dead and shook hands with a small gathering of the nation’s military veterans, the GOP contender walked approximately 100 yards away from the memorial as he chatted with Warsaw’s mayor.


As Romney made his way to his vehicle, reporters attempted to shout questions to the candidate. The former Massachusetts governor, who has answered only three questions from his traveling press corps during a week-long overseas trip, ignored the queries.

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:

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.”

    Good for Gorka, it’s about time someone showed some guts with the ultra biased media………..

      Ill second that, Cynthia! I only pray that their campaign can do the same to our state-run media. We have the new Hitler in power and he is perfecting the old Hitler’s strategy to a tee. It is way past time for the “Re-PUNK-licans” to take the gloves off and put on a pair of brass knuckles; afterall, the Left has been doing this for years. The Right had better wake up and figure out that you have to fight fire with fire and that you have to take the bully on if you want to get him off your back – I have yet to see either from the PC intimidated Right!

      It is to bad that they do not ask their messiah questions about his reign of terror!
      The ” one “refuses to answer any questions!

    The press is not respected. As a matter of fact, people disrespect the press members. The days of false awe of the fake bravery of reporters are long gone. The majority of the press membership are cowards, along with being dishonest. Just where are the press members that “consistently” seek the hard stories on the malfeasons on liberal politicians. There’s a lot of low hanging fruit, that goes untouched.

    These liberal media reporters wouldn’t be hounding Bozo Obama with questions IF he was showing repoect to our fallen heros at the tomb of the unknown soldier,but they hound Romney even though he gave numerous interviews to reporters earlier.

  • Chipper

    Awesome job, Mr. Gorka. Thanks for protecting your boss from disrespectful morons.

  • texayn

    Go Gorka! The press deserves no consideration. I do pity this generation, Their educational system has failed them. They’ve been taught what to think, not how to think. Unfortunately for us that is not just limited to the press. We are dealing with a senate and a congress that have trouble thinking for themselves as well…

  • CaptTurbo

    Good for him. The lying, ignorant media sucks.

  • Annie 1945

    The language just wasn’t necessary. Why feed the lame stream media anything to run them down about.

    • grandmaforliberty

      maybe because being liberal media, and progressive that is the only language they understand!!!

  • scot_belle

    There is a time, and a place, for questions from reporters. This is a fact.
    It is also a fact that when dignitaries are paying their respects to the dead,
    no matter where on this earth they are standing, is NOT time for questions
    …….from the news media. Their behavior was totally disrespectul!!
    IF THAT AIDE WERE HERE RIGHT NOW…I WOULD HUG HIM!! *S*

  • Finally someone with honest forceful from the gut reaction to the inaccurate dishonest, disrespectful (not of the candidate but the enviroment) cowardly press…Mitt, I think we have found your press secretary…Wel Done Rick!

  • Bob

    Good for Gorka?? He should be fired! – He played right into their hands – giving them stuff to be critical of Romney about. He should have been very firm, telling them that, Gotcha Journalism will NOT be tolerated, and, if they persist in not being respectful and begin asking responsible, relevant questions, they will be excluded from the press party. Once someone is excluded from the plane/press party, they’ll shape up.

    • It strikes me that the cussing came from sheer exasperation that comes from having listened to this type of absolutely meaningless drivel from the news media all through the trip. And it is meaningless. They don’t need anything to be critical of Romney. They just elaborate on anything or make it up if they can’t find even a speck.

    • Carol-Christian Soldier

      I liked Gorka’s response!
      C-CS

      • don

        Carol, even if it is wrong and it plays into the obama’s news media distraction narrative?

  • vietnamvet1971

    that is the only thing the Smug do gooding liberals know is to tell them just like it is.

  • nexgenesis

    I think that the good citizens of America are wanting someone to tell the liberal press to stop with the endless meaningless questions. To bad they don’t hold their anointed one to the same standard they hold Romney to. obamas who political resume is locked away in some safe plac. He is the most secretive candidated to ever sit in the White House, and the liberal press is just fine with that .

  • AlNewman

    Way to go, Gorka! You spoke for about a billion people…plus me!

    • keepersleeper

      …and me!

  • I still think it is disrespectful. It kind of reminds me when a reporter asks any dem politician about issues and they get nasty, they go into a tirade.
    I am hoping Romney and all he associates with would be above that. He just should have said he will give all the answers at a press conference later on.

    • don

      Gloria, did you even bother to read the questions? The disrespect is all on the obama drone reporters. Why should Romney answer the insulting questions? Do you think they would ask these kinds of insulting questions of obama? Romney cannot run his campaign like the wimp rino mccain ran his. Gloria do you have any clue as to what the American news media has become? They are nothing but obama stenographers. Romney is not to be distracted by the “enemy” news media. They lie, edit, and hide the real story of obama’s failures. Gorka did not do a rant. If you still do not get the picture, you need to be educated by Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin.

    • keepersleeper

      I hear you Gloria, but when you poke an animal enough times, it’s going to defend itself. Good for Mr. Gorka!

      • keepersleeper

        I can think of a lot worse things that SHOULD have been said to those disrespectful miscreants.

  • JohnWayne

    Good for Gorka!

  • I love this guy!!!!!!!! Let’s hope Romney gets a whole TEAM together with kinds of stones this guy has. Obama and the Dems are going to lie and cheat every chance they get (all the time); Romney needs people who can and will stand up and tell the Dems that they are lying pieces of crap, while he stays ‘above the fray’.

  • keepersleeper

    We all know how ugly and nasty the press is…when it comes to anyone other than a democrat. Never fear, though: All this bias and disrespect will come back to bite them and we, the public, should NEVER let them forget it: Don’t watch any of their tv shows ,listen to any of their radio programs or read any of their print media. That’ll fix them and send a very strong message!

  • keepersleeper

    I LIKE this new, bolder, intractable type of conservative. It’s about high time we stopped being so sheepish in the face of the enemy. Bullies need a beatdown occasionally to get the message across. Good for Mr. Gorka!
