Reuters Tries To Make (Non) ‘Stumbles’ Stick

From the CREEPS (the Committee To Re-Elect The President) at Reuters:

Romney stumbles on world stage but will it hit him at home?

By Steve Holland | Tuesday July 31, 2012

(Note: explicit language in the seventh paragraph)

Note this note. This is to guarantee people read the article. But when have you ever seen an ‘explicit language’ warning for any Democrat’s comments?

WARSAW (Reuters) – Mitt Romney upset Londoners, Palestinians and U.S. journalists on his ill-fated tour abroad, but with voters focused on the economy at home it is unclear whether the Republican presidential challenger’s fumbles will have a lasting effect on the November 6 election.

Of course, Romney had two strikes against him. He’s a Republican, and he told the truth. Which naturally upset the London leftists and the Palestinians and the US news media.

Meanwhile, our media guardians are going to keep lying about these non-existent gaffes until they become historical truths. Josef Goebbels would be proud.

In fact, you could even say that our news media treated Romney’s foreign trip with the same light touch that the German press would have treated a trip across the continent by Winston Churchill. And for just about the same reasons.

Romney is facing doubts about whether he can handle himself on the world stage as he tries to replace President Barack Obama.

Remember, this is supposed to be a news article.

His blunt comments on the London Olympics, Israel’s culture and the status of Jerusalem showed an awkward tone and an inability to control his own message, a problem that could be magnified in the heat of the campaign’s next 100 days.

Yet U.S. voters, especially in Rust Belt swing states like Ohio and Pennsylvania, care more about jobs than Jerusalem. It is not certain that Romney will pay at the ballot box for his fumbles…

But that won’t stop the news media from trying to make him pay.

The trip ended on a sour note with the media on Tuesday when traveling press secretary Rick Gorka angrily admonished reporters for shouting questions about his gaffes to Romney at a memorial to the late Pope John Paul II in Poland.

"Kiss my ass. This is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect," Gorka said.

This is the explicit language we were warned about. And it is also supposed to be yet another horrible Romney gaffe.

A saving grace for Romney may be that his sojourn took place during a summer down period with Americans more interested in their vacations and the Olympic Games than the presidential campaign…

Actually, this is a lucky break for the news media. Because if the public were paying closer attention they would realize how they are being lied to by our ‘journalists.’

Still, images like Romney being rebuked by British Prime Minister David Cameron for doubting London’s Olympic readiness, do not help the former Massachusetts governor convince Americans he is ready for the White House.

In fact, the media will repeat these lies about Romney’s gaffes and disastrous foreign trip until November 6, in the hope that some of it will stick with the great unwashed.

"It is clear that the opportunity to credential his beliefs with the American voters was nothing short for Mitt Romney of an embarrassing disaster on this trip. So, the notion somehow that this trip and its impacts don’t matter, I think is one of the craziest things that has been said along the course of this trip," said Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs.

Compared to any of Barack Obama’s apology tours, where he said and did unbelievably stupid things, Romney’s trip was stellar.

Romney has more of a need to be careful about voters’ perceptions of him than Obama does because Americans are still making their minds up about the Republican. Roughly one in five voters does not have an opinion yet about Romney…

Which is why the news media is working overtime to smear him any way they can. Even if they have to make things up.

They are trying to Chick-Fil-A Romney.
