Panic mode: Team Obama spinning, lying about teachers, confusing private sector with public


Team Obama is frantically trying to fix President Obama’s “doing fine” firestorm by spinning madly. “Not doing fine? Whatever! But, but firefighters, teachers and stuff!”


The “doing fine” remark by Obama was no gaffe; it is what he believes. The only blunder was that he said what the Left believes out loud. He hasn’t been able to escape the comments yet, so the usual suspects on the left are going all in on twisting Mitt Romney’s words and pandering to their thug buddies in the teachers unions.

@theMRC Not even taken out of context. Obama was pitching higher taxes to pay firefighters, teachers & police in hopes of appeasing unions.

Romney's plan to cut back on jobs for teachers and firefighters didn't work in Massachusetts, and it won't work now: http://t.co/6HYiXgbO

Mitt Romney surrogate: It wasn't 'a gaffe' … fewer firemen, cops, and teachers would be better http://t.co/FKWdTjI2

"Mitt Romney adopted a pro-layoffs agenda when it comes to school teachers, police officers, and firefighters": http://t.co/u3jGqyLf

Wld have thought Romney wld have found a way to walk back teachers/fire/police comment but he sent Sununu out today to reiterate it instead

WATCH: @DavidAxelrod asks if Americans agree with Romney that our economy needs fewer teachers and first responders: http://t.co/zM75QByr

Oh, well. If David Axelrod says it, it must be true! And by true, we of course mean totally not true. Chronic liar and expert meltdown artist Melanie Roussell of the DNC joins the spinning fray.

@kakukowski Romney's plan for the economy? Fire more teachers, firefighters, and cops. That's Romney Economics: http://t.co/wBq92x29

Romney camp doubles down on cutting teachers (= larger classes), fire fighters & police officers (= less safety) http://t.co/drHH7DAp

@kakukowski We all know who bailed on the Jobs Act – Speaker Boehner. Instead of protecting teachers, firefighters, GOP wants to cut jobs

— Melanie Roussell (@MelanieOMB) June 11, 2012

@seanspicer @Lis_Smith @kakukowski let me know how "we don't need more teachers, firefighters and police officers" is working for you.

— Melanie Roussell (@MelanieOMB) June 11, 2012

Oh, Melanie. Just because you keep repeating tripe, doesn’t make it true. Twitter users come to the rescue and try to aid the confused Democrats, who seem to think that the public sector should always grow and grow, even if wasteful and unnecessary. Par for the course, natch, when one’s own power is more important than the good of the country. Worse, President Obama not only has zero private sector experience, he doesn’t even seem to know what the private sector is.

Fundamental problem: Obama and staff don't understand the difference between the public & private sector. http://t.co/YiUAEffv #tx25 #cd25

Obama surrogate David Axelrod also confused the two yesterday, when stonewalling and trying to spin.

Twitter users aren’t buying the lies.


@jpodhoretz When one measures education policy by how much is spent, then reducing anything is tantamount to advocating for worse outcomes.

helloooooo! teachers, firefighters and police officers ARE NOT FEDERAL JOBS! this is not a FEDERAL ELECTION issue!!

— Prudence Paine (@PruPaine) June 11, 2012

Those infrastructure jobs that were important 2 weeks ago must be #DoingJustFine for Axelrod to be talking about teachers……

— Ben (@WyattBEarp) June 11, 2012

Spend $9 trillion dollars to hire 9 trillion teachers, fire fighters, and cops in 9 days RT @keder: Obama needs to propose 9-9-9.”

— Sam Valley (@SamValley) June 11, 2012

Obama could give a crap if black, inner-city kids get an education as long as he has the support of the teachers unions! #resist44 #teaparty

— Old Mac (@SPADOC) June 11, 2012

.@truthteam2012 Obama doesn't want more teachers and firefighters; he wants more czars and DC elite. Romney wants to cut O's credit line.

— B Morton (@bteacher99) June 11, 2012

Are Democrats dishonestly trying to convince the public that policemen and teachers create jobs? Or that we need more teachers?

Obama vs. Romney on Public School Jobs http://t.co/gWhfuNMk via @CatoInstitute We seem to have PLENTY of #teachers. Reality, not politics

— Neal McCluskey (@NealMcCluskey) June 11, 2012

Further, as Twitter tried to explain to the woefully and willfully ignorant the other day, such things are local.

Police/Fire/teachers is a puzzling presidential platform. Most people know these are local issues, prefer it remain that way.

— Rory Cooper (@rorycooper) June 10, 2012

By the way, are Democrats then admitting their stimulus nonsense failed?

Gosh….. the stimulus was supposed to save the teachers, police and firefighters jobs. Guess that didn't work huh?
