Progressives Hit Romney's Wall Street Ties

Democratic allies MoveOn and Americans United for Change are scheduled to gather outside Mitt Romney's NYC fundraiser tomorrow morning to highlight his ties to Wall Street -- a political move we saw coming yesterday. The progressives will wave "Romney-Gekko 2012" signs featuring a legit picture of a cash-stuffed Romney from his time at Bain Capital

Perhaps more interesting than the political theater, though, is the left's push to tie Romney's remarks that the housing market should be allowed to hit bottom to his support from the industry that largely caused the crash. The office of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman sent Ben Smith a statement today that read in part: 

To restore confidence in our markets and strengthen the economy for struggling homeowners, we simply cannot afford Governor Romney's proposal to let those responsible for the mortgage crisis off the hook, while throwing millions of hardworking Americans out of their homes and onto the streets.
