How Many Romney Aides Does It Take to Screw in a Light Bulb?

On to Poland, where one of Mittens’s aides lost his cool and told the press corps to kiss his ass. And that was one of the better moments for the Romney campaign.

Mittens got an endorsement from Lech Walesa, but the Solidarity organization let it be known in no uncertain terms that Mitt is not their guy.

Upon Romney’s visit to the Gdansk shipyards, the site of historic Polish worker strikes during the Soviet era, Solidarnosc issued a press release saying it is “in no way involved” in the Romney meeting with Walesa and had no “initiative” to invite the American candidate to Poland.

The union expressed dismay at Romney’s anti-union stances in the U.S., saying it would stand alongside the AFL-CIO, the American labor federation that has endorsed Obama and remains highly critical of Romney.

“Regretfully, we have learned from our friends in the American trade union central AFL-CIO representing over 12 million workers about Mitt Romney’s support for the attacks against trade unions and labor rights,” Andrzej Adamczyk, the head of the union’s international department, wrote. “In this respect, I wish to express… our solidarity with American workers and trade unions. [Solidarity] will always support the AFL-CIO in their struggle for the right of workers to organize and bargain collectively.”

Meanwhile, the fallout from Israel continues. Erud Barak spoke out and said President Obama has been as supportive of Israel as a U.S. president could be, in spite of what Mittens says.

  1. Yet another MITTstake by the candidate and his inept group of campaign advising nincompoop’s.

    Mitt, the MSM is MORE than willing to kiss your ass.
    That’s what they do best!

    But you don’t have one of “The Help” go and yell at them – even sycophants have some feelings.

    Mitt’s the Republicans presumptive Presidential candidate – and only now, because he had a bunch of drooling simp’s to run against, is the party finding out that, never mind the Presidential campaign, their candidate is
    actually a “Not Ready For Primary-time Player.”

    The treatment of the MSM on this trip will come back to bite him in the ass. When Great Van Susteren, FOX’s biggest Palin fan-girl, gets miffed, you should start to get a clue that you’re doing something wrong.

    But poor Mitt, his rich, manicured and pampered hands, always ready to pat “The Help” on the head when they do a good job, or slap them in the face when they don’t, doling out bonuses for jobs well done, and giving the thumbs down to fire or lay people off, has never learned that you never bite the hand that feeds you.

    Well, Mitt, at least you still have the MSM’s corporate bosses on your side. They’ll tell the underling’s whose feeling you hurt, to “get over it!”

    And I’m sure most of them will, and will go back to willingly kiss your campaign’s ass.
    But Mitt, in a close election, you might need all of them.

    And those manicured and pampered hands have never repaired anything, have they?
    Maybe you need to hire someone to handle MSM affairs, and repairs – which is what you’re been doing your whole life.
    Oooops! That’s the guy who told the MSM to ‘kiss his ass!’

    I’m sure he learned that from you.
    Your whole life’s message has always been, “I’m very rich. I’ll do whatever I want. And those who don’t like it, well, you can “KISS MY ASS!”
    And your PR flack certainly relayed that message very well the other day.

  2. The guy’s three for three– he’s pissed off EVERY country he’s visited so far. That’s hard to do and does not speak well about his presumably “hand-picked” team, either. For God’s sake, don’t send him to Pakistan or China; we’d have World War III.

  3. The frustration of the press corp is clear. They are calling Mitt on his isolation, ‘only answered three questions’. Mitt sees the press corp as a prop, there to take pictures at designated photo ops. It’s starting to piss them off.

    If Obama is willing to take the risk, he can steal the daily news cycle by doing short open interviews, answering unfriendly questions and emphasizing that being accessable to the press, and people with incomes under 10 million annual is something only Obama is willing to do.

  4. “Kiss my ass, this is a holy site, show some respect”

    Makes perfect sense to me! Now had he told them to f#ck off then that would be an issue.

  5. There does have to be some kind of limit on what you can sell people. McDonald’s, for example, is much much better at marketing than they are at making hamburgers, but that doesn’t mean they could get anybody to buy a Shit McSandwich. The super PACs might have more money than God, but they’re selling a shit sandwich.

  6. Mitt is indeed stunningly inept as a campaigner and we can assume will be so as a president. Unfortunately, I am learning that my peers turned off and tuned out any and all political news months ago. Because they’re voters, they’ll ‘tune’ in probably in mid-October. I’m guessing that they’re not unlike the majority of us out here which means that unless Romney’s ineptness. serial lying, and absence of soul is evident in those last weeks, he could well win the presidency. Fasten your seat belts, folks.

  7. I fear that this kind of behavior and coverage will only endear him to his base.

  8. “I fear that this kind of behavior and coverage will only endear him to his base.”

    The drooling GOP base would vote anybody on the GOP ticket. It’s those people with more brain power than a turnip we Democrats have a chance of winning over.

  9. Don’t forget the women, everyone. Mitt and the Republican Party have done and said all kinds of terrible things about women. They readily admit how many of our rights they want to take away. I think there will still be a female backlash against the Republicans along with no votes from the Hispanic community and no votes from the black community (with the exception of oddballs like Herman Cain and that strange guy who was chairman of the RNC–I have forgotten his name.)

  10. I don’t know, but it does the heart good to hear them singing Solidarity Forever in Polish. Figuratively speaking, anyway.

    It seems to set a new record for good will tours: three countries vivted, three bad trips.

    I do hope no one will be so vulgar as to read Ehud Barak’s words and conclude that this is one politician who’s quite sure who will be POTUS next year.
