99% Rally at Mr. 1% Romney's Wall Street Fundraiser

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:

As we left, we finished up with a "we'll be back!" message. Considering the extent to which Romney is a creature of the worst kind of Wall Street excesses---the latest of which being ties to an $8 billion ponzi scheme---he better look out.
