    Barack Obama tweets out a homework assignment!/BarackObama/status/212598281946136576

    That Mitt Romney … he sure does hate law enforcement, firefighters, and educators!

    Mitt Romney thinks we can afford to cut jobs for teachers, firefighters, and police officers—so let’s help him see why our communities and our economy can’t afford that.

    Share a story about how a teacher, firefighter, or police officer has made a difference in your life.

    Looks like a few people stepped up to the plate and answered the president’s call:

    "Mitt Romney may think we need less teachers, but it’s teachers that said I could be anything I wanted." -Zach

    "My car last Thursday caught on fire with no warning. The fire department was at the scene in three minutes." -Nadezhda

    "I am currently in 8th grade and I have two teachers that have changed my life." -Eva

    These testimonials seem totally legit, n’est-ce pas?

    Cue the well-deserved snarkery:

    Man, I'd love to meet the federal firefighters @BarackObama is tweeting about right now. #tcot #p2

    .@BarackObama: Could you point me to statistics on fireman & police job numbers? I can already see edu jobs haven't shrunk.

    I wanted to build a workshop in my back yard. Thankfully, an EPA agent sued me for stepping in a puddle – Jeremy

    @BarackObama @FLFusionista who the hell is Zach and why do we care?

    If memory serves, the son Julia chose not to abort was named Zachary.

    I cannot believe the drivel coming from @BarackObama twitter account right now.

    Oh, believe it.

    You can blame government schools for @BarackObama’s timeline right now.
