Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told a group of out-of-work Floridians Thursday that "I'm also unemployed," quickly drawing criticism from Democrats who said it showed the former Massachusetts governor and multimillionaire was out of touch.
"The person who doesn't take the employment crisis seriously is President Obama, who has discontinued his daily economic briefing," Fehrnstrom said. "If elected, Mitt Romney will reinstate the daily economic briefing and make job creation his number one priority."..."I will always make light of myself," Romney said during a tour of Kenny's Great Pies in Smyrna, Ga. "Self-deprecating humor is a part of who I am.""But the reality is we have a president who doesn't understand the plight of the unemployed."

Unemployed former Mass. Governor, Mitt Romney, seeks your vote
Yeah, Mitt. Somehow, I do get the feeling that Obama's background might just make him a little more sympathetic to the plight of the unemployed than your background... But nice try. Argue the policies all day, Mittens, fine. Just don't try to play the "everyman" card. You are not.
