No one has had a more disaster-prone trip overseas in recent memory than Mitt Romney's summer debacle. You'd have to go back to Richard Nixon's limousine being pelted with eggs and rocks in Latin America to find anything comparable.
It has gotten tense within the Romney campaign:
When the pool and traveling reporters were told to return to their busses, Haake adds, a mass of reporters instead headed over to the motorcade area, where Romney was observing another monument. It was there the press started shouting questions. An example: “Gov. Romney, are you concerned about some of the mishaps on your trip?” Another: “Gov. Romney, do you have a statement for the Palestinians?” And: “What about your gaffes?” Another Romney press aide fired back, “Show some respect,” adding: “Kiss my ass. This is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect.” That press aide later apologized to some of the reporters, but the damage was done.Whoever is still working for Romney has no idea what they're doing anymore. At something as simple as a monument visit, things should never get out of hand like that.
If I was a Republican, I'd pray for a brokered convention that would dump Romney in favor of anyone with a pulse, crazy or not.
