Steve Jobs was fired at Apple. He came back and changed the world.

Republican wannabe president Mitt Romney mentioned Apple's late CEO Steve Jobs in a speech at the party's convention on Thursday night.

Referring to taking risks, Romney said: "Usually, it doesn't work out exactly as you might have imagined. Steve Jobs was fired at Apple. He came back and changed the world."

"It's the genius of the American free enterprise system - to harness the extraordinary creativity and talent and industry of the American people with a system that is dedicated to creating tomorrow's prosperity rather than trying to redistribute today's," he added.

Romney was criticizing President Obama for not taking risks.
