Mitt Romney Can't Find Any Unemployed People to Star in His Videos
Reposting this from The Stranger's Slog, because I think people need to see Romney's disingenuous nature. He hires a fresh grad out of school who has a job to talk about the hardships. I'm sorry that you just got off student loans and are cashing your first paycheck, but its a little shady of you to make the video after you get your job, then talk about on your Facebook how you shot the video and are now on your way to work your job.
The Romney campaign wants you to meet Ryan King, who is miserable because of Barack Obama's economy, and baloney sandwiches:
But the Wall Street Journal discovered that King, who is the vice chairman of his county's Young Repubican organization, might not have it all that bad:
According to his Facebook and MySpace pages, [King] graduated just last month from Northwood University in Midland, where he studied accounting, was a residential adviser and mail clerk. On May 6, just as he was graduating, he announced that he “got the job, booya!!!” at Quality Marketing Enterprise, a Midland company.
On June 10, he cut the Romney video, telling his Facebook friends, “Last night went great and I hope that I make the final cut. It would be refreshing to be part of something nationwide. Off to work for the day.”
It is clearly a crime that Mr. King is not the CEO of a Fortune 500 company more than one month after graduating from college. I blame Obamacare. Oh, the misery! If Ryan King is the new Joe the Plumber, we're in for a very long election cycle.
