Interesting...all those "evil" Wall Street companies... And now I know why Time always seems to have a hard-on for Obama and his policies.

Most of those places will give to both candidates. Think about it from the company's point of view, they are buying influence and it is a win-win for them.

well look at it from wall streets perspective:
Obama promised a bail out and more regulation
McCain did not promise a bail out, and did not call for more regulation

guess they went with the money

Funny that the university of california gave obama $1.5m while crying about their funding cutbacks and having to cut classes and professors.

hmm...I don't see WaMu on Obama's list....I guess that's why they didn't "qualify" to get bailed out and instead got dissolved

Barry should give the cool Mil back to Goldman-Sachs, right? I mean, hell, Dubya took a huge ration of shit from the Dems because he took $150k from Enron. Fidel Obama got 7X that from Goldman-Sachs.

That still leaves about $187,829,715 unaccounted for out of the $200,000,000 in total contributions to his campaign. How much did Berkshire Hathaway give anonymously over the internet?

Fucking scabs!

wow, 150-200k is about average for McCain. Obama average was 500k? Any suprize why he had more promotional bullshit going around? I really dont like either party and wish they would quit treating this like a superbowl game...sigh

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.

That's why I don't believe there will be any meaningful financial reform. All those fuckers need to do is restore Glass Stegall and repeal or modify the Commodities modernization Act of 2002 but there is no way in hell that will ever happen.

So get ready boys, we WILL get fucked all over again by those fuckers on wall street..

^This is all everyone needs to know. It's very elementary, but the media will act like something has changed, when in reality they will continue shaking us upside down until the last penny hits the ground.

Difference was obama was not in bed with GS like bush was with kenny boy.

Republicans drove the car off the cliff and democrats had to do all of the work getting it back out of the ditch

If the SEC goes easy on their fraud investigation, we will know barry called the dogs off.


Wallstreet likes obama.


Now we know why the s&p really rallied 80% since last march.


Sort of ironic since the street usual favors GOP.

Probably has a lot to do with obama's chicago ties back at the cme.



I find it amusing that Lehman donated so much before filing bk.

Every one of those fuckers in Washington are in bed with any big company that you can name. Any one who doesn't believe that has his head in the fucking sand.
