Out of Touch: Mitt Romney Tells Florida Voters He’s “Unemployed”

Posted by

On a visit today in Tampa, Florida, Mitt Romney sat with a group of unemployed voters and listened to their concerns about the challenges of finding a job. Once they finished, Romney tried to empathize by telling them about his  own predicament:

I should tell my story. I’m also unemployed.

But there’s one part of Mr. Romney’s story that wasn’t mentioned: He’s worth more than $200 million.

I suspect that Mitt Romney probably isn’t experiencing the same challenges as many of those who are unemployed. Generally, a $200 million nest egg helps a guy to weather the recession.
