Human Dynamo Sylvia Sullivan helped organize a Monday protest event in La Jolla, drawing TV interviews with 10 News and KUSI reporters covering President Obama’s campaign fundraising visit to San Diego county. Here is Sylvia’s eyewitness account:
“President Obama came to town today. He had a pricey fundraiser luncheon at a home in La Jolla. Some of us could not let the opportunity pass without expressing our desire to defeat his agenda now and in 2012. We had some media coverage as KUSI and KGTV showed up to tape and interview. Their reporting was pretty fair as they recounted our dismay with Obama and his radical leftist agenda.
“His failures in the economy, jobs, spending, housing market took center stage. His extreme pro abortion policies were also noted.
“When I arrived, Steve Johnson was already at his post at the busy La Jolla intersection. Soon James Lambert also arrived with his sign – Anybody but Obama for 2012. Diana Davies came with her four wonderful children, ready to take their stand.
“Around 1:45 pm James and I went closer to the event house in La Jolla by All Hallows Catholic Church. The church had brought out their flag waving students to catch a glimpse of Obama. A lady driving by parked, borrowed a sign and joined us to give a message to Obama. She wondered where were the Republicans and the Tea Party people. The news later reported that another group, a Tea Party one had protested downtown.”
………PRESIDENTIAL MOTORCADE ARRIVAL SCENE
“Shortly there after, the police blocked off the streets. This was followed by dozens of motorcycle cops, squad cars, black SUV’s and limos. It was as if the king and his entourage had burst onto to the scene totally taking over.
“As we stood there, James said he had looked into the Obama limo catching his eye as Obama saw we were not bowing to the great one.
“In the end it was a good day. We gave a voice for those who could not – unborn babies and working people. As for Obama, he came, took the money and in just a few hours he was gone. He saw as the polls report, that all around this nation people are working to retire him in 2012.”
…………….. 10 News KGTV coverage of Protest Activity
“While Obama attended the fundraiser at the Phelps home in La Jolla, protesters manned an intersection near the home to let people know they were not happy that the president was in the area. “The unpopularity of Obama is showing forth,” said protester Sylvia Sullivan. “He is the cause of our troubled economy,” she said. “He is the most leftist president we’ve ever had… the most pro-abortion. People need to be aware of that.”
Sullivan said the president is failing on his promise to get the country and the economy going again. “He is the president,” she said. “He’s said he owns it. His people have said he owns this economy. They tried their way with stimulus money… [and] jobs that weren’t ready.”
