Mitt Laughs About Layoffs

During a conference call Wednesday, Mitt Romney told Wisconsin voters a hilarious story about his father being led in a parade while running for governor of Michigan. The marching band only knew the Wisconsin fight song, not the Michigan one, which was super awkward because Romney Sr., then the head of American Motors, didn't want to remind Michigan voters that he was moving his company's factory to Wisconsin. The voters' reaction to this charming tale was muted, but Democrats have already leapt on the story as yet another example of the gap between Mitt and the common man.
