Romney's First Gaffe?
Link from TPM. Mitt Romney, talking to a group of unemployed people, tells them he's also unemployed. True that he hasn't been "employed" in years but it doesn't stop him from enjoying his millions and comfy lifestyle unlike the people he was speaking to who really struggle. Sorry, Mitt, you CAN'T relate to the pain so don't even try.
Mitt Romney's given President Obama all kinds of grief for bemoaning "bumps in the road" to economic recovery. In a viral web video released this week, camp Romney creatively anthropomorphized those bumps as unemployed people still struggling after a years-long economic downturn, all of whom stood up and proclaimed, "I'm not a bump in the road."
Leave it to Romney -- net worth over $200 million -- to completely step on his own message.
"I should tell my story," Romney told a group of unemployed people in Florida. "I'm also unemployed."
Just like the people in his video, Romney's no bump in the road either. But he just stumbled over one.
