Axelrod attempts damage control, and it goes badly
David Axelrod is one of the worst people on Earth. He will take literally any position, regardless of how ridiculous, if he thinks it'll help a democrat President. Last week, Obama stupidly suggested that the "private sector was doing just fine" which it obviously isn't. Here's Axelrod trying to spin that insane statement into a positive for his boss......
From FoxNews -- President Obama's top campaign strategist said Sunday that the country needs to "accelerate" job creation in the private sector -- by hiring more teachers, police and firefighters.
Obviously teachers, police, and firefighters are not private-sector people. Axelrod knows this but he also knows that the media will pretend not to notice his lie in order to themselves, help Obama. The startling revelation from this statement is that democrats think that increasing public-sector employment somehow helps the private sector. To democrats, they are the same thing.
Democrats always hold up teachers, firemen, and police as if they are the only public-sector employees there are, because how can anybody be against teachers, firemen, and cops? The truth is that lazy, good-for-nothing, government-agency bureaucrats make up the vast majority of public sector jobs. Hiring more of these people harms the private sector because money has to be taken from the private sector in order to fund their absurdly high salaries, lavish health-care and retirement packages, and celebrity-style vacations they laughably refer to as "conferences".
