Romney Slams President Obama and Unions Bosses in Wake of Chicago Teachers’ Strike

Mitt Romney today issued the following statement the on ongoing teachers’ strike in Chicago:

“I am disappointed by the decision of the Chicago Teachers Union to turn its back on not only a city negotiating in good faith but also the hundreds of thousands of children relying on the city’s public schools to provide them a safe place to receive a strong education.

Teachers unions have too often made plain that their interests conflict with those of our children, and today we are seeing one of the clearest examples yet. President Obama has chosen his side in this fight, sending his Vice President last year to assure the nation’s largest teachers union that ‘you should have no doubt about my affection for you and the President’s commitment to you.’ I choose to side with the parents and students depending on public schools to give them the skills to succeed, and my plan for education reform will do exactly that.”

    Fire them ALL!! They’re Obama’s sugar daddy and mommy anyaway. The 1st day of Prez Romney presidency should be eliminating Dept of Education :-) These teachers unions are out of contol. When they’re going to give priority for students learning?
    How come the Prez never mentioned in Dems convention the most important issues that his state faces, young kids murder rates, inner cites school lack of performance? Are you telling me this guy care for the poor, blacks? I don’t think so.

    Support Gov Romney!!!
