Mitt Romney’s campaign released a web video on Friday about how Obama has failed to create new jobs. The spot features Ryan King, a recent college graduate who is struggling to find a job in Michigan. You can watch the video here.
But wait a minute, if you listen closely to the video, King says “right now I have about $3 to my name before I cash my paycheck tomorrow”. Um, he’s getting a paycheck tomorrow?
Not only that, but according to the Wall Street Journal, a month before King made the video, he bragged on his Facebook page about getting a job.
It should probably surprise nobody that Ryan King is also the vice chairman of Young Republicans in his county. His Facebook page also has photos of him partying away at the 2011 state GOP convention.
Maybe we should be feeling more sorry for Mitt Romney than for Ryan King. Is he really this disconnected from reality?
