It’s not enough that the Republican Party has declared war on women and students. Now, led by Mitt Romney, they’ve declared war – on public employees.
After President Obama on Friday said the real blows to the economy had come from job losses among government employees, Mitt Romney went on the attack. “He says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers,” he told a crowd in Council Bluffs, Iowa. “Did he not get the message of Wisconsin?”
Now, I only have one question for Mitt Romney: “What’s wrong with teachers, firefighters, and police officers?”
Look, we know he’s rich, rich, rich. But didn’t Willard ever need the help of a cop? Was there never a time in his family’s life when they, or one of their friends, had to call the fire department? And was he so smart at birth that he never benefited from the help of a teacher?
We know what’s happening. The war on public employees started in the states: Wisconsin, New Jersey, Ohio, Indiana, and Florida. And now Mitt Romney wants to make it nationwide.
That’s the choice in this election: Do you stand with teachers, cops, and firefighters or not? We know where Mitt Romney stands.
That’s my parting shot for today.
