“He wants another stimulus, he wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more firemen, 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.” -Mitt Romney on Obama’s latest jobs pitch
He wants to hire more people! Obama wants to give you a job! Holy fuck!
That was not the message of Wisconsin, by the way. Even Governor Scott Walker would disagree with you, Mitt.
Scott Walker explicitly excluded police and firefighters and singled out teachers. It was a cynical ploy, but it worked. And apparently Mitt Romney wasn’t really paying attention, because attacking police and firefighters isn’t a good idea.
And who exactly is going to “help the American people” if not the government? The Trickle-Down Fairy?
