President Obama Calls for 75,000 Teachers To Be Fired

    In the spirit of the characterization (not "hiring more" = "firing") by the Obama 2012 campaign of Mitt Romney's remarks on teachers, firemen and police (which I commented on in the second half of this post,) President Obama today called for the firing of 75,000 teachers.  Around 5 PM on Monday, @BarackObama tweeted this:

A mere 45 minutes later, this tweet came out:

No explanation was given for slashing 20% off the previous total of 400,000 educators.  For some reason, the White House feels those 75,000 teachers' jobs no longer need support.  Hey, maybe the public sector is "doing fine" now, too!
