Romney garbageman ad is garbage

  Honestly I've hardly been able to blog the last few days, so disgusted am I with the press, the Obamabots, all of it.
  Now comes this commercial from an AFSCME commie featuring a taxpayer paid employee looking mournfully into a camera, complaining that his body will be breaking down by the time he's 55 years old from doing the tremendous work he does.
  This taxpayer paid employee visits neighborhoods on a regular basis, including Mitt Romney's, and on some occasions residents of the neighborhood come out to greet him, hand him cool drinks, congratulate him on the job he's doing.
  But not Mitt Romney.
  Sad glassy brown eyes that may weep after the camera clicks off, the taxpayer paid employee complains that Mitt Romney doesn't "care" about him or the fact that his back will probably give out lifting garbage for the likes of Mitt Romney.

  It appears from this salary schedule that, at 33, Mr. Hayes may make anywhere from $60,000 up to pick up trash in San Diego. Who knows what his job benefits are. Surely if his "back gives out," there'll be a government program available so he can sit around and recover.
  Ads like this have been running continuously in Ohio. The frequent complaint is that Mitt Romney doesn't "care" about the little guys, based on some secretly taped meeting Romney held with donors. The whole "caring" thing is a predominant Democrat thing.
  That a cheapskate, narcissistic candidate like Obama who has given to charitable causes only when he was in campaign mode could even compare himself to the likes of Mitt Romney is appalling. Romney may not have been my favorite candidate during winnowing season, but his record (though he does not boast of it) of charitable giving, concern about others and magnanimity are unquestioned.
  So naturally that's what the Obama campaign seeks to destroy in the public eye.
  The Democrats have been taking great pleasure in playing Romney's words out of context, claiming he doesn't "care" about 47% of the people.
  Yet what Romney said is not what the commies are saying he said. Here's the transcript of what he said, which is quite different than the excerpted clip we hear taken out of context.

“There are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. 
“And I mean the President starts off with 49, 49…he starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. 47% of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn’t connect. 
“So he’ll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean, that’s what they sell every 4 years. And so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. 
“What I have to do is convince the 5% to 10% that are independents, that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or another depending upon in some cases emotion, whether they like the guy or not.”
  Romney says that as a candidate it isn't his "job to worry" about trying to convince those who are hard core dependent on the government Obamabots to vote for him.
  Amazing how that's morphed into "Romney doesn't care about the people," isn't it. 
  This is more "war on women" illogic being foisted off on the mentally weak.
  As far as old Richard goes...
  Just shut up and do your job without whining.
  You're making me sick.


  1. “During my campaign for governor, I decided to spend a day every few weeks doing the jobs of other people in Massachusetts. Among other jobs, I cooked sausages at Fenway Park, worked on asphalt paving crew, stacked bales of hay on a farm, volunteered in an emergency room, served food at a nursing home, and worked as a child-care assistant. I’m often asked which was the hardest job – it’s child care, by a mile.”

    “One day I gathered trash as a garbage collector. I stood on that little platform at the back of the truck, holding on as the driver navigated his way through the narrow streets of Boston. As we pulled up to traffic lights, I noticed that the shoppers and businesspeople who were standing only a few feet from me didn’t even see me. It was as if I was invisible. Perhaps it was because a lot of us don’t think garbage men are worthy of notice; I disagree – anyone who works that hard deserves our respect.

  2. I assume this is a Romney quote. I personally have always respected and appreciated the work unsung people do, from the CEO to the person who washes the toilets.

    But I'm sick and tired to the point of yelling at the teevee with the manipulation going on here. That people can actually FALL for this "garbage" is nauseating.

    There was a time when people who did these jobs--and other jobs that are professional--were not paid well. That time is NOT now. Unions have served their purpose in driving up wages and benefits for teachers, garbage workers, federal and state employees--to the point that we can no longer afford to keep them. They always want more; enough is never enough.

    It has to stop somewhere, and for this buffoon to be looking sad eyed into the camera complaining that some rich guy on his route doesn't appreciate the quality of the work he does makes me sick.

    Dear God, when did we get to the point in this country where we needed somebody to hold our hands and cry with us just because we need some time to feel sorry for ourselves, sitting alone in the corner weepy and weak.


  3. Yes, that is a Romney quote. You must have missed Rush today. Played that ad after assuring his audience it was not a parody. I don't give my garbage man hugs and gatorade. It's imbecile.
