Mitt Romney thinks cops and firemen aren't American

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Mitt Romney thinks the "message" of Scott Walker having survived a recall in Wisconsin is that America hates cops and firemen:
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.”
Because firemen, cops and teachers aren't "American people"?

As Greg Sargent points out via the link above, there were a lot of messages from Wisconsin, and none of them were about cops and firemen being a waste of money:
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.
