Poor Romney: Struggling to Get By While "Unemployed"

A funny little nugget buried in Romney’s statement this morning on his tax returns. In passing, Romney said although most of his money came from investment income, a small amount came from speeches. “I get speakers fees from time to time but not very much.” Well, it turns out that amount is over $374,000 last year. Which is a fair amount of money, though to give some perspective, not a wild amount of money compared to what other retired politicians make giving speeches.
In fairness to Romney, he probably thinks that unemployment benefits pay more than $400,000 per year.
