Fire About Firing

Ann Coulter takes the media to the woodshed for attacking Mitt Romney about his comment on firing people. Romney’s comment was twisted into something it wasn’t and Coulter provides a few examples that make the media, not Romney, look foolish.

From Ann Coulter

To comprehend why the political class reacted as if Romney had just praised Hitler, you must understand that his critics live in a world in which no one can ever be fired…

…after a spate of burglaries at a veterans hospital in California several years ago…nurse’s aide Linda Riccitelli was videotaped sneaking into the room of 93-year-old Raymond Germain as he slept…stealing the bait money that had been left there…the California Personnel Board rescinded her firing and awarded her three-years back pay…

Psychiatric technician…hit a severely disturbed individual with a shoe…(he) was fired, but, again, the California Personnel Board ordered him rehired.

For years, the New York City school budget included $35 million to $65 million a year to place hundreds of teachers in “rubber rooms”…Teachers accused of raping students sat in rooms doing no work all day, still collecting government paychecks because they couldn’t be fired.

33 employees of the Securities and Exchange Commission…were found to have spent most of their workdays downloading Internet pornography over a five-year period…Not one of the porn-surfing employees of the SEC was fired.

…the inspector general of the National Science Foundation…stumbled across dozens of NSF employees…surfing pornographic websites on government computers during working hours…They weren’t fired or even embarrassed…

Now, wouldn’t you like to be able to fire people who provide services to you?

    The thing with Romney is that his Bain business took bailouts from the Federal Government, making him more of a corporatist than a capitalist.
