Multiple protest groups coordinated parodies, sidewalk chants and rotating street parades to show their dissatisfaction with the presidential hopeful.

The Occupy protest groups mobilized days in advance for Republican presidential nominee , according to Redwood City Police Chief JR Gamez. Many donned “1%” personas as the group “Multi-Millionaires for Mitt.”

The disparate groups were able to rally under similar banners, that Romney favors corporations over the working people, they chanted.

 “We gathered here to let Mr. Romney know that many Californians do not want him to be president,” said Landes Martilla of the Electric Workers’ Union.

“We’re giving him a welcome befitting of a man who’s worth $200 million and complains that he’s unemployed.”

If class warfare is all the left has in it's pro Obama protests get used to the words "President Romney".

Stacy, good job on coverage! I wanted to attend and support fellow Americans in our area that were standing in the cold, rain and wind to be our voice . God Bless them! I wanted to attend but no job, no gas, and taking care of my preschooler because day care is not in the budget. Just paid all my other taxes! How long does the dying middle class cover the agenda of the 1%? see the tv show "addicted to money" and Tavis Smiley interview with Catherin Crier. No More China made Bay Bridges.

Republican, Democrat or Independent, peaceful, albeit somewhat zany, protests like this give me hope for our system of government.

The protesters were not pro Obama at all. In fact they were cheering "F%#k Obama Too". They believe in a society without parties but instead to look at each candidate individually without bias parties telling the people how to vote. Vote for who you think is the correct candidate, not whose side the candidate is on. Both the Right and the Left have corporate funding and corrupt candidates. It's like Red vs Blue, Light vs Darkness. The agenda of the 1% is to keep the middle class divided and this is how they have been successful. Stop looking at a candidates "team" or Party but instead look at them individually.

Go back and watch the video. You will not see 1 pro Obama sign.
