Mitt Romney “I’m just like you” watch

The Boston Globe reports:

Mitt Romney, hours after a debate this morning where he was attacked for his business record, sought to display his empathy for average Americans by talking of stocking the shelves at Staples. He said he, too, knows what it’s like to be afraid of a pink slip.

“I know what it’s like to worry whether you’re gonna get fired,” he told about 600 people in an Opera House here. “There were a couple of times I wondered whether I was going to get a pink slip.’’

Romney’s campaign did not immediately respond when asked when he worried about being fired. The multi-millionaire former governor of Massachusetts spent much of his career as a venture capitalist and equity investor at Bain Capital in Boston.

Why does the born-to-privilege Romney keep doing this? Does he really think anyone is buying it?

Update: Here’s one I missed, from November:

“The taxpayers shouldn’t have to have money taken out of their pay checks to pay people in government who are our servants who are making a lot more money than we are,” Romney continues.
