JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Mitt Romney’s given President Obama all kinds of grief for bemoaning “bumps in the road” to economic recovery. In a viral web video released this week, camp Romney creatively anthropomorphized those bumps as unemployed people still struggling after a years-long economic downturn, all of whom stood up and proclaimed, “I’m not a bump in the road.”

Leave it to Romney — net worth over $200 million — to completely step on his own message.“I should tell my story,” Romney told a group of unemployed people in Florida. “I’m also unemployed.”

Just like the people in his video, Romney’s no bump in the road either. But he just stumbled over one.
