Do you want to see Mitt Romney get Mic Checked today in Iowa? I have the video right here! But first . . .
Remember that memo that leaked out of Wall Street a while ago where they said the thing banksters fear more than anything else was an alliance between the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street? Well, it is happening, and it is going to turn into the perfect storm, and that perfect storm is headed straight for a Wall Street Millionaires' yacht, The S.S. Mittens.
Now, about that Wall Street memo . . .
The proposal was written on the letterhead of the lobbying firm Clark Lytle Geduldig & Cranford and addressed to one of CLGC's clients, the American Bankers Association.
The CLGC memo raises another issue that it says should be of concern to the financial industry -- that OWS might find common cause with the Tea Party. "Well-known Wall Street companies stand at the nexus of where OWS protestors and the Tea Party overlap on angered populism," the memo says. This combination has the potential to be explosive later in the year when media reports cover the next round of bonuses and contrast it with stories of millions of Americans making do with less this holiday season."
Bold text added by the diarist
No candidate in the Presidential field in 2012 represents two faced Wall Streeters better than Mitt Romney. Occupy Wall Street knows it. The Tea Party knows it. Mitt Romney is Mr. 1%.
The Bad (Ass):
Mic Check Romney in Iowa from Today
Hat tip to ThinkProgress.org
Mitt Romney, Mr. "Corporations are people, my friend", a multi-millionaire worth over $200,000,000, a man who wants to cut taxes for the rich and make health care more expensive for the elderly, a man who refuses to release his tax records, a man who has been running for President for 6 years and made his vast wealth downsizing workers, that Mitt Romney got Mic checked today by Occupy protesters (twinkle fingers!)
And, of course, his response was to play it cool and say, "Isn't it great!" Don't take too hard of a stance, Willard!
