Romney's controversial attack on public sector workers came during a Friday press conference where he criticized President Obama's call to rehire hundreds of thousands of cops, firefighters, and teachers, and his observation that the private sector was doing fine in comparison to the public sector. Romney responded: "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." Axelrod criticized Romney's comments Sunday on CNN's State of the Union. Even conservative Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker rejected Romney's comments. But you wouldn't know that by watching Fox & Friends. Fox Disappears Romney's Attack On Teacher, Firefighter, And Police Hiring Former New Hampshire Gov. John H. Sununu, a surrogate for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, defended the presumptive Republican nominee's comments that the nation should have fewer teachers, firefighters and police officers, saying there was "wisdom" in Romney's remarks. John Sununu defends Romney's call for fewer teachers, says it was "policy". I (Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker) know in my state our reforms allowed us to protect firefighters, police officers and teachers. That's not what I think of when I think of big government. Gov. Walker splits with Romney, says firemen, teachers aren't big government ------------------------------------------------ Hilarious on Fox, they edited Axelrod's comments and left out the comments about "firefighters, police, and teachers". Republican's turned Obama's words into a "gaffe". Romney's words were "pure policy". As long as people think of government as faceless, nameless bureaucrats they agree with Republicans. But every community want's more firefighters and police for sure. Communities who want a future for their children want more teachers. Republicans put a name to those "faceless others". Now we know who Republicans are against.
