Richard is a City of San Diego sanitation worker whose route includes Mitt Romney's $12 million oceanfront villa in La Jolla, Calif. This is his story.

LOL....the Democrats are literally scraping the bottom of the barrel on this one. What a bunch of idiots.

By the way, why hasn’t this fabulous garbage man managed to better his station in life during The Messiah’s rule the past four years?

They’ve got to be kidding with this. Is it satire?

This would only work on the most stupid people imaginable anyway and since Obama already has a lock on the Moron vote, well....

Nothing wrong with being a garbage man. It’s honest work and much better than being a welfare taker.

Like Rush said, Ubama is angling for the moron vote.

Evidently, there are a lot of them.

He hasn’t bettered his station in life because he already has a very good job: Public sector security, gold-plated benefits, and union salary.

I have to admit that I have never thought about hugging my garbage collectors. Or shaking their hand. I’m usually still in my nightgown when they come by. I’m sure not going to run out and start hugging on them. Plus Florida, very sweaty. Sorry all you garbage collectors but I won’t even hug my husband when he’s sweaty.

Wife did a little research and found that the average pay in San Diego for garbage collectors is $75,000 a year. I’ll trade jobs with him in a heartbeat!

According to the published San Diego Pay Scale, a Sanitation Driver 1, with little to no experience makes around $37K per year.

Mitt Romney's campaign (according to Rush) issued a statement that Mitt, when he was governor... worked as a garbage man for a day... just to see what the job entailed and how it could be made better for the workers and tax payers. obama stepped on his mangina with this one. Now get the waste management company that this turd works for... to fire his sorry arse for using his official public works job in a partisan campaign.

Obama don't care about his Ambassador to Libya.

Don’t give Obummer any ideas. If this ad works Barry will make this guy a WH Czar.

We can’t talk about Rev Wright, but we can talk about a garbage man that has probably never met Mitt....

What a bunch of maroons.

How many days in a year is Romney even at his La Jolla home? The ad seems to be partly to remind people that he is rich. It comes from AFSCME which has always been a militantly left-wing outfit (at least for decades).

Really lame.

I collected trash one summer for the NYC Department of Parks. I loved it! One of my favorite jobs ever. Of course, I was 19 at the time. Not a lot of money, but not in the least stressful, plenty of exercise, you’re outdoors enjoying the sunshine. I never felt sorry for myself for a second doing it.

Since the Obummer ads are playing the empathy card. this gives the Romney pacs the green light to embarrass Obama in the way he ignores his family: his aunt in public housing and his brother George in the Kenyan hut who had to beg Dinesh D’Souza for $1000 dollars of medical assistance for his daughter, I believe, because he said he has nowhere else to go.

When I was stationed in Havana in the 90s, I had an excellent relationship with garbage collectors. Every Christmas I gave them several bottles of Havana Club Rum and an envelope with some $$$. They treated me like a rock star.

Mr. Hayes... I guess you are JEALOUS of Mitts house...

12 Million for a house is a bit too much... IMHO, but I will never be jealous of it!! (Derek Jeter's house on Davis Island (Tampa) is a tourist ATTRACTION.).

Richard, the garbage man, laments that his body will be worn out by age 55 due to the rigors of his job. La Jolla, which is part of the city of San Diego, like many other municipalities, has trash receptacles on wheels which are placed at the curb by the citizen such that the forks of the garbage/trash truck can grasp the container without any lifting by the collector. That being the case, IMO the job is not so strenuous as to cause a premature breakdown of the body. Garbage man Freepers can correct me. As others have pointed out, it’s a good job.
