Romney: I would fire Obama aide

Mitt Romney wishes he had the power to fire a senior Obama adviser so the Democrat would know what its like to be jobless.

“If David Plouffe were working for me, I would fire him and then he could experience firsthand the pain of unemployment,” Romney said Friday in response to remarks from the president’s aide saying Americans will not vote based upon the employment rate.

“His comments are an insult to the more than 20 million people who are out of work, underemployed or who have simply stopped looking for jobs,” Romney said. “With their cavalier attitude about the economy, the White House has turned the audacity of hope into the audacity of indifference.”

The unemployment rate rose to 9.2 percent in June, it was announced Friday.

“Today’s abysmal jobs report confirms what we all know – that President Obama has failed to get this economy moving again. Just this week, President Obama’s closest White House adviser said that ‘unemployment rates or even monthly jobs numbers’ do not matter to the average American,” he said.

    Were it possible, I would give America the greatest gift possible, I would fire Obama and his whole Marxist crew. That of course would include liberal idiot Joe too.

    Relax Folks….it’s going to A B O at the voting polls.

    ANYBODY BUT OBAMAO

    I’m an Indy, have voted on both sides in the pass, but this time around I will

    vote for the most FISCAL conservative running…will I have to give up a

    few “pet peeves” I have with Conservatives, sure I will…but considering the

    alternative…as EASY decision.

    Plouffe is too young to understand how it all works. People really do vote their pocketbook, they always have. And you WH guys have not helped people’s pocketbooks! Someday when he has a real job maybe he’ll get it….

    Plouffe’s another WH Idiot at Large. America has gotten very used to moronic statements & random insults coming from Obama & his staff at this point. ’12 will be four years too long.

    are these the same average, stupid, bitter AMERICANS who cling to their guns and their religion.

    when are more people going to see that this administration has absolutely no use for WE THE PEOPLE, preferring to insult us at every turn.

    Obama himself wrote or had written that he himself had absolutely no use for his mother’s race, except to APPEASE them, to get what he wanted from them, and nothing more. and now we know that Obama’s father wanted nothing to do with him, which explains a lot.

    I agree. I would love to see the entire team of bums fired. I am sure they are wishing very much that the next election will not be based on jobs, because they are the cause of so many out of work people, so many lives destroyed. This is the result of “Hope n Change.” What a clueless group of fools.

      Don’t fire them; just cut their pay back to a dollar a year, with self-pay benefits.

      Cheers
