Romney’s foreign trip is the mainstream media’s coming out party in favor of Obama this electoral season, an obsessive nit-picking the likes of which Obama has not seen since ever.

John Hinderaker has it right:

The Most Striking Thing About Mitt Romney’s Overseas Trip…

…has been the press coverage. It has been hypercritical, to put it mildly….

By any reasonable standard, Romney’s trip has been successful. Yet press coverage has been unrelentingly negative. This AP story sums up the press’s angle well: “Another hiccup?

None of this will have any effect on the election, except insofar as Romney benefits with pro-Israel voters and with Polish-American and Catholic voters. But it is a useful reminder that the media-formerly-known-as-mainstream are still lying in wait, and will pounce on any opportunity to give the Obama campaign a boost.

The latest MSM attack line is that a Romney spokesman said some bad words to the media.

Alternate headline: “Conservative support for Romney now at 100 percent.”

That’s Allahpundit’s take on this video of obnoxious journalists who tip-toe around scared to ask a tough question of Obama, and who ganged up on Neil Munroe, yet who scream at Romney while he visits the Polish tomb of the unkown soldier:

REPORTER: “Governor Romney—“
REPORTER: “—some of the mishaps on your trip?”
REPORTER: “Governor Romney, do you have a statement for the Palestinians?”
REPORTER: “What about your gaffes?”
REPORTER: “Governor Romney, do you feel that yours gaffes have overshadowed your foreign trip?”
GORKA [Romney spokesman]: “This is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect.”
REPORTER: “Governor Romney—“
GORKA: “Show some respect, Jim.”
REPORTER: “We haven’t had another chance to ask him questions.”
GORKA: “Kiss my ass. This is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect.”

The MSM Declaration of War on Romney was made on foreign soil, this last week of July, 2012. So it is recorded.
