Mitt Romney, seen here threatening your sick grandma, thinks we have way too many teachers, firefighters, and cops in the country.

Romney said of Obama, “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.”
This time, however, Romney deserves points for honesty: He has forthrightly declared that the class of government workers holding back other Americans does include cops, firefighters and teachers. And in so doing, he has singlehandedly reframed the debate from one over despised government bureaucrats to one over whether we should hire more cops, firefighters and teachers to get the economy going. This is a debate the White House will be happy to have.
It’s rare that a Republican comes out and actually lets people know they fantasize about destroying the middle class, attacking the people that enrich and protect our local communities, and pay for the economic disasters that they createdon the backs of the working class.
