From the June 12, 2012 New York Times quoting Mitt Romney on his notion that we don't need more cops, firefighters or teachers:
"[The president] wants another stimulus, he wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more firemen, more policemen, 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." - Mitt RomneyFrom the Oct. 5 Akron Beacon Journal, reporting the fire that destroyed the Father's House Church in Norton:
"It was a small fire that had plenty of opportunity to grow before we could get there," Chief Mike Schultz said of the blaze that started about 11 p.m. ...Our efforts were pretty much hampered because we had a longer response time and no personnel."
Failed levies have forced the station to close without on-duty personnel from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Note to Mitt: Got any other ideas on "helping the American people?
