In a press release issued this afternoon, Patty Murray's campaign criticizes challenger Dino Rossi for what the campaign portrays as an attack on public workers, including troops, teachers and firefighters.
"In an offensive and bald attempt to continue to smear his way to victory, 18 year politician Dino Rossi this morning insulted millions of Americans troops and others who serve their country," the release states. It also includes in the headline what the campaign claims to be a direct quote from Rossi's appearance on conservative talker Laura Ingraham's show: "American Troops, Teachers, Firefighters 'Have Never Held a Meaningful Job In Their Adult Lives.' "
But the audio file that was sent along with the press release shows that Ingraham asked Rossi about the business background of the White House staff, specifically advisers to President Obama. Rossi says of those people: "Well, you have a bunch of people that are in charge that have never actually had a private sector job, and a meaningful one, in their adult lives."
Rossi isn't talking about all public sector workers. And the reference to "a meaningful one" doesn't appear to be a claim that only business jobs are meaningful. Instead he appears to be saying that no one among Obama advisers has held a meaningful business job.

WA State ping (Senate)
Osama Mama Patty Murray is showing a bit of dementia. She is hearing things that were not said. Is this the type of Senator we want in Washington DC?
Anyone who does not have the capacity to listen accurately to what is being said, should not represent the people.
DINO ROSSI FOR U.S. SENATE 2010!

FReepmail sionnsar if you want on or off this ping list.
Ping sionnsar if you see a Washington state related thread.
Using the term “smell test” and the Moron in Tennis Shoes in the same sentence is discomfiting to say the least (thanks for the ping anyway ;-)
