House Speaker John Boehner was playing golf in Newport Beach, Calif. on Monday when about 50 Occupy Wall Street protesters followed him, waving signs on a nearby road. Ryan Ballengee of NBC Sports reports:
"He knows he can't go anywhere without the people going with him," said [Rick] Jacobs, founder of the Courage Campaign, a progressive group. "I hope that even while he's up there, raking in millions in cash, he knows there's people here and everywhere. We're going to make clear that this isn't a funny time anymore. This is a real time. It's time for him to get busy on jobs and not on his golf game." ...
Jacobs obtained entry to the club under the guise of having a tee time on Monday, then tracked down Boehner to hand him a petition with 26,000 signatures imploring the House of Representatives to pass President Barack Obama's proposed $447 billion jobs plan.
