Obama Thinks the Private Sector is Doing Fine and He Did NOT Walk It Back

You know, Axelrod was on CNN with Candy Crowley on the State of the Union show on Sunday. He said, “We need to accelerate job creation in the private sector.” And then he added, “One of the ways we can do that is putting teachers and firefighters and police back to work. Because those are good, middle-class jobs.” Do you realize…? Well, I’m alternately stunned and at the same time exhilarated by this, because of how explanatory this is.

All of the jobs that he listed are actually public sector jobs!

All the money for them comes right out of the private sector.

But now we know where Obama gets his economic advice from. Look, as nice as they are to have — teaching jobs, firemen, policemen — they are all paid for with money out of the private sector. They are paid for with tax revenue from citizens. They cut into the amount of money left for private sector. They don’t grow the number of private sector jobs, they reduce them. Now, I’ve gotta be very careful here. Because nobody’s against teachers or firemen or cops. But those are public sector jobs.

Look at the way these people think.
