Duh...Wake up! He already does.

Wall Street couldn't support its addiction without our enabling administration.

Wall Street is sending their campaign donations to Republicans. Mitt Romney already has gotten over a million from Goldman Sachs employees. Obama has received $46,000. The numbers speak for themselves.

Our research shows clearly that the movement doesn't represent unemployed America and is not ideologically diverse. Rather, it comprises an unrepresentative segment of the electorate that believes in radical redistribution of wealth, civil disobedience and, in some instances, violence. Half (52%) have participated in a political movement before, virtually all (98%) say they would support civil disobedience to achieve their goals, and nearly one-third (31%) would support violence to advance their agenda. """""





They sound like good all-American Americans to me! GOOD for them for participating in politics that's what GOOD Americans do.

Civil disobedience! Gotta be careful with that..it might START A COUNTRY!

Support violence...just exactly like the Republicans support war which is very VIOLENT. Americans do war....

So was this an issue for you during the last election when Obama was raking in record amounts from Wall Street?

Face the facts, it doesn't matter what political affiliation the candidate is, he is already bought and paid for by the powers that be.

It was an issue. They knew Obama would win and thought that by giving him lots of cash, he would go easy on them. He didn't really punish them, he just didn't let them run wild like Bush did. The GOP is proposing that letting Wall St. run wild is the best way to improve the economy. That's why Wall Street is now sending their cash to the GOP and not Obama.

That's actually an excellent question.

My guess would be that, as accomodating to WS as Obama has been, he IS a Democrat, after all. You never know when one of those guys is gonna get all "regulatey" on your ass, even a market-friendly centrist, like Obama. You just can't trust 'em!

The Masters of the Universe logically can expect that a Romney Administration will be even friendlier to their piratical, unregulated, Randian plundering. They've probably already been promised as much.

Most libs refuse to believe that Obama got more corporate money in 2008 than any candidate for President ever had before him. I don't think you can convince them of this, but do keep trying.

Because, lemme guess:
1) It's a woman
2) She has a baby
3)

An actual good parent wouldn't bring their infant out in one of these things.
