    "Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was campaigning in Florida this morning when he said he wanted to tell his story, the New York Times reports - and added, "I'm also unemployed."


    The candidate then reportedly chuckled, as did the eight people gathered around him.


    Romney, who made hundreds of millions of dollars as a businessman before becoming Massachusetts governor - his net worth has been estimated around $200 million - was speaking to a group of unemployed Floridians when he made the comment."

    Indeed. There is unemployed (which I am myself) versus being without an income (which Romney & I are not).

    An insensitive comment, but typical of a Republican. After all, they're being funded by big business, not by the unemployed. So they can afford to laugh at those in need.
