Mitt Romney today showing his true colors again. He does not give a damn about jobs for Americans:
He wants another stimulus, he wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more fireman, more policeman, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government and help the American people.
The Obama campaign jumps on Romney's remarks:
In Iowa today, Mitt Romney shockingly promised to cut jobs for firefighters, police, and teachers if elected. As President Obama urges Congress to pass his plan to put cops, firefighters, teachers, and construction workers back to work — after they left as many as 1 million jobs from his plan on the table — Mitt Romney has decided we need less jobs for middle class Americans, not more. That’s the message he received this week
Quoted by Greg Sargent, WaPo, The Plum Line
This is no gafffe. This is Romney saying we don't need more teachers, firefighters or police officers.
Jobs are not what Romney's about. Bain and Massachusetts showed that.
The Republicans always over reach. Wisconsin was about a recall and was not a vote against teachers, police officers, and firefighters.
Two of those groups of people were the heroes on 9/11. Guliani always tried to bask in firefighters' heroism. Now Republicans sneer at teachers, police officers, and firefighters.
When I worry about this election, I remember that it is Romney who we must beat, and he is incapable of hiding his disdain for the 99%.
The next time you have a fire or are burglarized or attacked, call a Republican for help. There won't be enough cops or firefighters. And if you want an education, call a Republican because the teachers won't be there. And the Rs will sell you a book by Ayn Rand.
