Republican Mitt Romney, who is leading in polls since his hair-breadth win in Iowa, told a crowd in Nashua, New Hampshire “I like being able to fire people who provide services to me”.
“It’s great” Romney said. “I really like the look of desperate fear that comes over them – especially poor people in the service industries who will have an especially tough time finding work. It’s about the most fun I have with my pants on!”
Newt Gingrich immediately criticized Romney for his comment: “Sure, we’d all love to sit around firing poor people all day – maybe even evicting them from their homes, just to make it that much more fun. But some of us have to come out here and work every day for every single vote. I mean, not me. I have underlings for that. And I can’t wait until this election is over so I can fire them!”
