    Keep drinking that Hope n Change Juice

    "I should tell my story," Mr. Romney said. "I'm also unemployed."
    He chuckled. The eight people gathered around him, who had just finished talking about strategies of finding employment in a slow-to-recover economy, joined him in laughter.
    "Are you on LinkedIn?" one of the men asked.
    "I'm networking," Mr. Romney replied. "I have my sight on a particular job."

    It just breaks my heart. How in the world does he make his mortgage payments?

    It was obviously a joke, but how well it went over is another story. Maybe you had to be there.

    Or read the the attached article once in a while

    "I should tell my story," Mr. Romney said. "I'm also unemployed."

    If i were in the crowd, and been unemployed for a year, I would have walked away. It was in bad taste, no matter what he meant.

    But its OK when your Messiah says an ATM kicked his economy's ass, or when Biden says no way those jobs are coming back.

    Romney bankrupted 5 companies and sent tens of thousands of jobs to China. What was left was broken up and sold. That was to make sure those jobs would never come back. And how much did Romney make? About a half billion. And he laughed and laughed all the way to the bank. Republican approve. A new "hero" is born.

    I saw the video, it was a joke, not done in poor taste but fitting in with the subject that was being discussed. Move along there's nothing here.
