Things not to Joke About When you are a Multi-millionaire Running for the Presidency
“I should tell my story, I’m also unemployed.” – Mitt Romney
Yes, I realize he is joking.
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.
As such, not the smartest attempt at humor, given the economy and whatnot.
