Rush Limbaugh – the President Should Fire People

Newt Gingrich has taken a page from the Occupy Wall Street crowd as he goes after Mitt Romney. While I say welcome to our side Newt, Rush Limbaugh is quite upset. Fair enough but Democrats should really highlight this:

"So Romney is out there saying that he likes being able to fire people. Folks, don't we want somebody in the White House who's gonna fire people? How are we going to reduce the size of government? Don't we want somebody who loves firing people in the White House? Isn't that what we're all talking about here?" Limbaugh said.

So according to Rush – we need to layoff even more government workers. Isn’t that part of the problem, however? We are practicing Herbert Hoover economic policy by reducing government employment during a period of slack aggregate demand?

How about sacking Tim Geithner: the twit who earlier in the recession thought that no stimulus was needed and that the solution was to shovel billions into the pockets of his former and future employers (Wall Street banks). See:

Ralph -

That doesn't make him a twit. I makes him potentially very rich.
