During his overseas trip, Mitt Romney traveled to some of our closest allies accompanied by some of his most merciless enemies — the media.
If you don’t know that Romney’s foreign jaunt was the worst diplomatic fiasco since the Zimmermann telegram or the XYZ Affair, you haven’t been reading his press clips.
In Poland, when a few reporters shouted thoughtlessly hostile questions at Romney near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, they nicely encapsulated the tenor of the coverage. A Romney aide, Rick Gorka, told them to “shove it” — a perfectly apt sentiment.
The press can say that, like it or not, it simply played its role. Which is true, if it’s supposed to be querulous, unfair, and self-obsessed.
