Adding to Obobo’s totals?
DeWitt, Mich. — The protesters popping up at Mitt Romney’s rallies throughout Michigan Tuesday look like run-of-the-mill grassroots liberals — they wave signs about “the 99 percent,” they chant about the Republican’s greed, and they describe themselves as a loosely organized coalition of “concerned citizens.”
They’re also getting paid, two of the protesters and an Obama campaign official told BuzzFeed.
…Meanwhile, about 50 feet away, another protest had been organized by local Democrats in conjunction with the Obama campaign. A campaign official told BuzzFeed they had nothing to do with the other group — which he said he believed they had been sent by the labor-backed “Good Jobs Now” — and confirmed that they were being paid.
…By the end of Romney’s remarks, most of the “Good Jobs Now” group was standing in the shade, chatting amongst themselves and letting their signs hang to the the ground. And while the Democrats aligned with the Obama campaign continued to shout at rally-goers as they filed out of the event, the other group of demonstrators made their way down the street and loaded on to a charter bus.
…two protesters said they were getting paid to stand outside of the rally, though their wage is unclear: one said she was getting $7.25 per hour, while another man said they were being paid $17 per hour
Well, that sounds like “Crappy Jobs Now” — and pay discrimination, too.
Pro Forma Denial in….

Oh, yeah. Of course it is. I remember all those Tea Partiers shouting down Ann Coulter, tossing pies, breaking in on CPAC meetings… Sure.
So let’s see who Good Jobs Now say they are…

Good Jobs Now Protests Mitt Romney at Ford Field
On February 24, more than 200 protesters stood outside of Ford Field during Mitt Romney’s Michigan campaign tour.
The “Rally Against Mitt Romney” took place in response to Romney’s support of reducing business income tax rates…
Paying just the legal, bare minimum amount in taxes is not good enough, DTE. You need to pay the fair amount.
