Mitt Romney’s high-end fundraiser riles critics
San Francisco Chronicle - May 29, 2012
Obama, during his fundraiser last week in Redwood City, attacked Romney's record in business. "Gov. Romney ... is saying, 'My 25 years in the private sector gives me a special understanding of how our economy works,' " the president told a sold-out crowd of 1,100 supporters at the Fox Theatre. "If that's true, why is he peddling the same bad ideas that brought our economy to the brink of collapse?"
Liberal groups are getting even tougher: AmericansUnitedforChange.org, an activist group, this week released a list of Romney's "all time, out-of-touch, 1 percent moments" - including his plans for a new $55,000 car lift at his beachfront home in La Jolla (San Diego County).
