Annals of Oblivious Idiocy, Not to Mention Hypocrisy and Condescension

Trying to sound sympatico with unemployed workers at a campaign event in Florida, Mitt Romney said he wanted to tell his own "story" and smilingly said  he's unemployed too. Ha, good one. This travesty of a "joke" from a guy who's worth over $200 million, and whose only job for years has been to run for President. Out of touch and full of crap much?


FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
