"Mitt Romney Feels Your Pain: ‘I’m Also Unemployed’"

During a campaign stop in Tampa, Florida today, Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney met with a group of unemployed Floridians. After listening to their difficulties finding work, Romney told the voters that he can sympathize because he’s “also unemployed.” Romney, who comes from a wealthy family and founded a major investment firm Bain Capital, was worth up to $250 million when he ran for president in 2008. He spent $42 million of his own personal wealth on his presidential campaign three years ago, enough to provide jobs for over 1,000 middle-class workers.
