Mitt Romney Mocks Obama For Wanting More Firemen, Policemen, Teachers

Obama told reporters on Friday that "the private sector is doing just fine" -- handing the GOP a talking point that it quickly used for a video, press releases and remarks. He made the statement as part of a larger point about public sector job loss, and later clarified the statement to say it is "absolutely clear" the economy is not "doing fine."

Republicans equated Obama's statement with a failure to recognize the high unemployment rate, which includes public sector workers. While 82,000 jobs were added in the private sector in May, 13,000 government jobs were eliminated. After saying President Barack Obama does not care about the private sector, Mitt Romney on Friday dismissed unemployment in the public sector, saying the country does not need more firemen, policemen or teachers.
