Hard to believe I know, but I’ve finally created the last movie from video footage of the West-Klein debate this past Tuesday — with the addition of a short clip of my friend and indefatigable activist, Jessica Johnson Dornblaser at the next day’s protest in Fort Lauderdale. While we stood outside with a few other patriots holding signs, Ron Klein spoke at a breakfast for commercial lenders. As you’ll note in the video, he apparently didn’t have much to say, as Jessica spotted him striding quickly to his car in the parking lot just moments after the festivities got underway.
One positive sign: We managed to speak with a few lenders who’d also left soon after Klein, none of whom were supporters. One guy told me it was all he could do not to scream out the names Fannie and Freddie when Klein did his typical “banks are evil” shtick as part of his presentation. My guess is that all of them will be voting Republican next month.
