Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney got off to an awkward start back in New Hampshire on Wednesday when the first question he took at a town hall meeting was from an Occupy protester.
Fresh off his narrow win in Iowa, Romney was making his first campaign appearance ahead of the New Hampshire primary on Jan. 10 when the questioner who said he was from both the Occupy New Hampshire and Occupy Boston protest groups against economic inequality raised his hand and asked a question about corporate greed.
You have said that corporations are people, but in the last two years corporate profits have surged to record highs directly at the expense of wages, the man said. It seems that the U.S. is a great place to be a corporation, but increasingly a desperate place to live and work.
Where do you think corporations profit goes? Romney shot back at the protester, who responded that corporations either retain it or it goes to shareholders, the one percent of Americans who own 90 percent of the stocks.

I don’t mean to be nasty but why is Romney the only one that had town halls today. This is not the time for any of them to have a break. Get in there and start kissing babies. lol. Yes and I mean all of them. Romney needs to be stopped and taking a break even for a day is not good.
Good. Rombney should have the skills to deal with these Occupy libtards. Glad he was able to articulate free market ideas and keep his cool.
Romney did a good job of defending himself with facts.
Most Republicans just roll over for this kind of insane stupidity by these Occuthugs and the liberal media.
There is a lot of corporate malfeasance and corruption in the United States, but they are run and owned by actual people, despite what the Occumorons say, and just because you own or manage a company successfully does that mean liberals, leftists and Occuidiots can steal their money or take away their rights to defend their interests.
The punks should ask Zero why the US is becoming such a horrible place under his leadership. BTW, maybe they should flee to Cuba, where 99.99% of the wealth is controlled by the .001%
He should have said: buy some stocks, and quit bitchin. Get a haircut, and while you are at it, take a shower. Then shave, suit up, and engage.
