Default Follow the Money; Obama and the Dems in bed with Wall Street

So what's all this rhetoric from obama about taxing the banks?

Timothy P. Carney: Beware the Goldman Sachs populist | Washington Examiner (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columns/Beware-the-Goldman-Sachs-populist-82293977.html - broken link)

Quote:
For his presidential campaign in which Wall Street regulation was a mantra, Obama's top source of funds was investment bank giant Goldman Sachs, whose employees, partners, and executives gave him $995,000 -- that's the most any politician has raised from any one company in a single election since the age of "soft money" ended.
Quote:
The "securities and investment" industry has favored Democrats by more than a two-to-one margin so far this cycle. The top eight recipients of Wall Street PAC money this election are all Democrats.
The snake oil salesman is at it again. Can anything coming out of his mouth be believed anymore?

Are we really supposed to believe that obama will take to task the industry that provides such a windfall to his party?

The "Snake Oil Salesman" ... Good one sanrene ...

Don't hold your breath while you wait for O'Balmy to do this one !

Indeed ... If One were so inclined to desire themselves to be the the Emperor of their very own autocracy they would undestandably be in need of many great sources of wealth to get established ... would they not ?

Thus the climbing into bed with Wall Street may well be explained at this point in time.

Thanks / Lamar

Well, ain't that something. For months I've been hearing people complain that Obama is a commie. Surely, a commie wouldn't make any deals with Wall Street.

In communism, everyone is equal. Of course, some are more equal than others.
