    Mitt Romney on Monday called on President Obama to take a stand on the Chicago Teacher's Union strike, which is about to enter its second day and leave 400,000 students shut out of classes.

    The GOP candidate took a break from a high-dollar fundraiser to criticize the president.

    "Well, I think the president ought to stand up and say we that we ought to put the kids first in this country and the teacher's union goes behind," Romney said during a radio interview with conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt. "Look I think we've gotta help the kids, help their parents, help the teachers, but the teacher's union is opposed to many of the reforms in education that we know are critical to the success of our kids."
    I thought he wanted local issues to be solved locally.

    But I thought you felt Obama walked on water, and could resolve any and all issues. This is tailor made for the messiah to handle. Besides, shouldn't this nation be doing all we can 'for the children'?

    I'm sure these teachers have their reasons and if the kids miss a few days....they will be treated like snow days...made up at the end of the year. Why is the worker always wrong? Or in this case the teacher?

    I don't know why they are stricking but my guess is the city is trying to take from them and the union believes it is bad for its members.

    I was told (by a teacher friend) that until I am in their shoes I have no right to judge them.

    I can't judge a parent on how they raise their children because I'm not a parent.
    I can't judge a teacher because I'm not a teacher.
    I guess I can't have an opinion about anything really.

    Why don't you become a little more informed before you guess! You know what happens when you assume something but I'm sure you know that.
