About 40 leftist activists protested House Speaker John Boehner's visit to the Pelican Hill Golf Club in Newport Beach, Calif., on Monday. They were calling for the Ohio Republican and other members of his party to approve President Barack Obama's $447 billion jobs bill, which stalled last week in the Senate, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rick Jacobs, founder of the liberal group Courage Campaign, and the rest of the protestors drummed, chanted and shouted through bullhorns all morning on a usually quiet street where the Orange County GOP was holding its Reagan Cup golf tournament

Under the guise of having a tee time Monday morning, Jacobs was able to get into the golf clubhouse and speak briefly with the Republican leader.

Jacobs tried to hand him an online petition that called for Republicans to move the jobs bill forward; however Boehner's assistants took it.

"Speaker Boehner always appreciates hearing the concerns and opinions of all Americans, and he'll continue working to find areas of common ground where Democrats and Republicans can come together to help create jobs," said Cory Fritz, Boehner's communications director.
