We Don’t Need No Firemen

Last week the President made a poor choice of words in talking about how the private sector was adding jobs, while the public sector was laying off. He said, “the private sector is doing fine.” Of course it’s not overall, but what he meant was that, in comparison to the public sector, it’s better. Faux News and the media have been all over, but barely giving any coverage to Mitt Romney’s response.

Romney’s response ought to be far more damaging, and more telling about what he thinks of the middle class, as he suggested we shouldn’t hire more cops, firefighters or teachers:

Romney said of Obama, “he wants another stimulus, he wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more fireman, more policemen, 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.”

Yes, yes, by all means, let’s cut back the number of the teachers…because, literally, it’s been shown that the less education one has, the more apt one is to vote Republican.  We can’t have those damned educated and smart voters running loose out there. They might vote for a progressive agenda. And police officers and firemen…really, who needs those. I’ve got locks on my doors and a garden hose if anything goes wrong.

I’d like for Romney to go to the Texas town that had to lay off its entire police force last year or to Detroit and Philadelphia, which have to do “rolling brownouts” of fire coverage because they can’t afford to fully staff their fire departments, and say it to the faces of the citizens of those towns.
