I have a stupid flu or something, so I’m just going to post this very moving video.
This very moving video exposes that Mitt Romney is a mean, rich, unfriendly fellow who does NOT, let me repeat that for extra emphasis, does NOT, bring his trash collector a Gatorade nor will Romney hug the man. That is to say that he never has yet, so it’s assumed that he will not.
Enjoy the show.
HO now, here is a nice bit of filler. H/T to Ace of Spades:
But clearly the AFSCME never read Romney’s own autobiography (p. 251) where he talks about WORKING AS A GARBAGE MAN as NRO’s Charles Cooke pointed out:
During my campaign for governor, I decided to spend a day every few weeks doing the jobs of other people in Massachusetts. Among other jobs, I cooked sausages at Fenway Park, worked on asphalt paving crew, stacked bales of hay on a farm, volunteered in an emergency room, served food at a nursing home, and worked as a child-care assistant. I’m often asked which was the hardest job – it’s child care, by a mile.
One day I gathered trash as a garbage collector. I stood on that little platform at the back of the truck, holding on as the driver navigated his way through the narrow streets of Boston. As we pulled up to traffic lights, I noticed that the shoppers and businesspeople who were standing only a few feet from me didn’t even see me. It was as if I was invisible. Perhaps it was because a lot of us don’t think garbage men are worthy of notice; I disagree – anyone who works that hard deserves our respect. – I wasn’t a particularly good garbage collector: at one point, after filling the trough at the back of the truck, I pulled the wrong hydraulic lever. Instead of pushing the load into the truck, I dumped it onto the street. Maybe the suits didn’t notice me, but the guys at the construction site sure did: “Nice job, Mitt,” they called. “Why don’t you find an easier job?” And then they good-naturedly came down and helped me pick up my mess.
