Photos: Romney Met By Protesters in Redwood City

The Republican presidential candidate came to town for a fundraising dinner early this evening at the Hotel Sofitel.

Protesters from three groups were waiting for Presidential candidate Mitt Romney when he arrived for an exclusive fundraising dinner tonight in Redwood City.

Activist groups protesting outside the 5:30 p.m. reception included Occupy Redwood City, Raging Grannies and the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment.

Raging Grannies member Ruth Robertson said her group adopted "billionaire personas" as they stood outside the event with signs mocking people who were driving in to attend.

Protesters wore fake fur and held signs reading "Corporations are People, Too," she said.

"We think by mocking them it might bring them down a rung or two," Robertson said.

Members of Occupy Redwood City also attended the protest as "pretend" millionaires.

There were more organizations there such as Occupy Oakland, Occupy San Jose, Occupy San Francisco, Local Union Labor Council and some volunteer residence that also don't want to see a fool like that take office and ship more of our jobs off to China.

Hey 4 freedom, I think the jobs are going to Mexico when Billy Bob Clinton sent jobs to Canada and Mexico when he signed NAFTA while Monica was under his desk, love you liberals with short memories. Further I love approved groups, occupy, Unions, and other winners who cost us money by trashing towns like Oakland based on class warefare beliefs created by Obama's 1% idea. Like the picture above, BTW, fine looking protester.

Got Issues? You had to dig up a 3 month old post to find something to bitch about (and typically had to belittle a persons looks in the article)?
