    Because they are both one in the same, both socialists, both having the same agenda. The are from two different parties with the same objective, the two different parties is only there to make us think that we actually have a choice in the matter.

    This is a good point. I wish that was the actual reason and nothing else, but I doubt it.

    i think hedging is the actual reason. also therre is probably a divide politically among the various partners there with many supporting eac candidate so it probably is also an internal decision to keep the peace as well

    Covering their bets.


    CBS just identified 11 companies like Solyndra. It only cost us a few billion. Goldman wants more then just being a memory.

    Goldman-Sachs cannot contribute to political campaigns.
    You are showing your ignorance and stupidity. Again.

    A lot of NYC bankers are liberal with their social beliefs and are conservative with their economic beliefs. They just jumped on the Obamination bandwagon since they saw the anti-Bush bias across America in 2008 and they didn't realize how bad he would be, as he is with them blaming them for every problem on this planet.

    Now, they are choosing someone like them in Romney with moderate social beliefs and conservative economic beliefs. They also see the anti-Obamination bandwagon sweeping America since he is worse in 4 years than Bush ever was in 8 years.
