Well... you could talk about Bush and Enron contributions but then that was just pocket change compared to Obama and the Democrats...but I'm guessing Democrats no longer care... a convenience of memory..

When President Barack Obama's vast new regulatory state is completed, Wall Street firms ought to have a competition over the naming rights.

Will it be the CitiDeal? Or the Goldman Society? Or the UBS/J.P. Morgan Joint Initiative for the Establishment of a Social Democracy

The Democratic majority was bought and paid for by Wall Street and corporate money. The Masters of the Universe helped give us the Masters of the Beltway, in a synergistic exercise that would have dumbfounded even Lenin.

Democrats beat Republicans in the Wall Street money chase in 2006, and kept on going. In the 2008 election cycle, Democrats garnered 73 percent of the political donations of Goldman Sachs, as well as the majority of donations from other financial giants such as UBS and Citigroup. They soaked up most of the hedge-fund money, and won the battle for donations from industries as varied as health care, defense, and law.

Of course the dems sucked up the donations. Only fools thought Palin would win.

Who wants to bet on the losing horse in a 2 horse race?

Yet strangely enough, it was a Republican President who bailed them out. And let's not forget the effort of the GOP Presidential candidate who actually suspended his POTUS campaign just to ensure this deal went through.

Wall Street just like most big corporate donors go with the winner. They start off contributing to both campaigns. As the elections approaches and they think they know the winner, they will increase contributions unless they feel additional donations won't buy them anything. This holds true for all parties and all elections.

I can hardly disagree but do you recognize the hypocrisy? (by the the way, I hate the word hypocrisy)

they should have nominated romney for VP instead of letting the religious right shape their agenda... then they'd have gotten the donations.

treating people like they were stupid enough to vote for palin because she wore a skirt was simply insulting.

Oh, so are you saying women voters in the US won't vote for a ticket just because they put ANY woman on it?
