At the crack of dawn this morning, the Job Party joined Rebuild the Dream, MoveOn, United NY and more at the Grand Hyatt Hotel where Mitt Romney was holding a fundraiser to sponge up Wall Street cash.
We chanted "We Are The 99%! Romney's Mr. 1%!" while holding up great "Greed is Good: Romney / Gekko 2012" signs. Check out our flickr set of photos of the festivities here.
Now of course, this tact of democratic discourse was none too appreciated by Romney's 1%-er friends. Likewise, when we went inside to try to speak with the would-be president of the 99% about JOBS, the director of security let us know in no uncertain terms that they were not interested:
