Romney Campaign Makes Sure Poland Visit Gets Equal Gaffe Treatment

After leaving behind insults in England and Israel, Mitt Romney didn't disappoint during his stop in Poland, where his spokesman spiced up a Warsaw photo op by channeling Charlie Sheen and telling reporters to "kiss my ass" and "show some respect" in the same breath.

You know what they tell political staff: Always make the boss look good and never generate bad press, so well done, soon-to-be-former media guy who should self-deport away from the campaign.

Romney's World Foot In Mouth Tour is ending, but don't worry: a four-month national tour is just beginning.

Speaking of gaffes, does Obama plan to visit all 57 states this campaign season?

Uh - those reporters just want to deflect from the economy... said...

RD: 2008 and not even close in ramifications. At least Obama admitted his MINOR gaff. Romney's were massively insulting and proved that he is not a statesman ready for prime time. Romney never admits his gaffs. Does Romney understand or remember what he spewed from his arrogant and ignorant mouth? Nope.

Both Snopes.com and our friends at FactCheck.org later suggested that Obama meant to say 47.

At a later stop that day, according to a Los Angeles Times blog post, Obama was talking with reporters and expressed concern he'd also mis-stated the number of potential cyclone victims in Burma. Obama said he hoped he’d said 100,000 people the first time instead of 100 million. "I understand I said there were 57 states today," Obama said. "It's a sign that my numeracy is getting a little, uh." At that point, the Times blog said, an aide cut Obama off and ushered journalists out.

Another breathtakingly vapid comment from the disciple of the guy who gave us Voodoo Economics and said with a straight face that "Trees cause pollution." -- among many other gaffes and misstatements he made due to his dementia.
Rayguns, you never fail to disappoint.
