Quote Of The Day: Mitt Romney On Unemployment


“I should tell my story. I’m also unemployed.” -Mitt Romney, attempting to be humorous while chatting with some Floridians who are actually unemployed.

Steven Taylor makes several good points:
1) He seems to have a job, after a fashion: running for president which includes donors paying for a lot of his expenses. So really, “unemployed” doesn’t strike me as the appropriate term.

2) His net worth, as reported in 2007, was $202 million.

3) If he wanted a job, I expect he could get one. Today.
Yeah. Probably not the best 'joke' to use given the current economic environment.
