• The politician who has received more money from Bank of American than any other candidate dating back to 1991.
• The politician who racked up $8.9 million from 56 bundlers in the securities and investment industry.
•The politician who had 20% of total campaign funds coming directly from Wall Street.
•The politician who, in one election, racked up $15.8 million from executives at Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Citigroup, UBS AG, JPMorgan Chase, and Morgan Stanley.
Oh wait, that politician would be Barack Obama.

Obama spent almost 600 Million in the last election.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">On September 4, 2008, the Obama campaign announced they raised $10 million in the 24 hour period after Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin's acceptance speech. The RNC reported raising $1 million in the same period.[50]

On October 19, 2008, Obama's campaign announced a record fundraising total of $150 million for September 2008. This exceeded the campaign's single-month record ($66 million) for August 2008.[51]

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>The campaign raised much of its cash in small donations over the internet, with about<u> half of its intake coming in increments of less than $200</u></span> </div></div>

Hardly bought but I will admit he is far too cosy with them. They all are.

Q </div></div>

ACTUALLY (http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/summary.php?cid=N00009638) it was more like $745M.

So the 20% of $745M would be $149M.
IN COMPARISON, IN THE 2000 ELECTION: (http://www.brennancenter.org/content/resource/2000_presidential_race_first_in_modern_history_whe re_political_parties_spen/)

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Nationwide, total spending on ads for Bush exceeded spending on ads for Gore by $9 million, $86.1 million to $77.1 million.</div></div>

JOHN McCAIN (http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/summary.php?id=n00006424) spent about half of what Obama did.

Now ... Obama's cut from Wall St alone was almost as much as what Bush and Gore spent combined in 2000 ... and was almost 50% of what McCain spent in total in 2008.

It is no secret that the relationship between President Obama and Wall Street has chilled. A striking measure of that is the latest campaign finance reports.

Mitt Romney has raised far more money than Mr. Obama this year from the firms that have been among Wall Street’s top sources of donations for the two candidates.

That gap underscores the growing alienation from Mr. Obama among many rank-and-file financial professionals and <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Mr. Romney’s aggressive and successful efforts to woo them.</span>

...Since this spring, Mr. Romney has raised $1.5 million from employees of firms like Morgan Stanley; Highbridge Capital Management, a hedge fund; and Blackstone, a private equity firm. Mr. Obama has raised just over $270,000 from firms that were among his leading sources of campaign cash in 2008.

Employees of Goldman Sachs, who in the 2008 campaign gave Mr. Obama over $1 million — more than donors from any other private employer in the country — have given him about $45,000 this year. Mr. Romney has raised about $350,000 from the firm’s employees. </div></div>

There is still over a year for Wall St money to poor in for both candidates so the race is not over. Don't jump the gun to early, you have already been burned once on this subject.

Since I know you haven't the courage to question dear leader, let me do your legwork.

Obama in 2008 spent $730B to get elected.

Carter-Ford 1976/Carter-Reagan 1980/Carter-Mondale 1984/Bush-Dukakis 1988/Bush-Clinton-Perot 1992 combined spent $665.7B. That's 11 major campaigns spending in total less than Obama.

Going the other direction in time we find that in 2008 Obama spent more than Bush/Kerry/Nader/Bednarik/Peroutka/Cobb combined.

Wrong. You have to link money with actions.



If Obama is bought and paid for, why is Wall St supporting Romney and not Obama?

If Obama is bought and paid for, why did he introduce Wall St reform?

Fact is, Wall St knew O was going to win. They gave him loads of cash to curry favour but O has been a big disappointment for them.

OTOH, he has also been too soft on them IMO.

They get to keep on giving to Obama through the election. Give him time. The second thing is that should Romney get more than Obama this time around then yes Romney will be the one bought off. Why is that hard for you to figure out? Romney is not in office so even if he is bought off it doesn't impact us. What is scary is that the most powerful chair in the world is bought off with Wall St money.

Repigs blocked tougher regulations and reforms on the Wall St.... Pigs proyecting pigs, for the last three years.

Repigs, in secret, behind closed doors, Bush/Paulson/ created the "Emergency Bail out with no strings attached...Or we'll be in a Depression for a decade" policy. Boehner crying on the Senate Floor, begging for the bail out money! Paulson, on his knees, literally, begging Pelosi not to block the Bail OUT.

Repigs in concert with the Wall St. Pigs, hid from everyone the depth of the fallout....which they may have better minimized, if Paulson hadn't decided to let his former enemy and competitor, Lehmann Brothers, fail. Wouldn't have totally prevented the Damages from Bush's "Ownership Society" and "The fundamentals of the economy are strong" numerous Repiglican lies, and Greenspan's, "throw gas on the fire," unjustifiably low interest rates for eight damn years, building the RE BUBBLE, all for Bush's Ownership Society, but things may not have been nearly as bad...as far as the depth of immediate knee jerk, psychological market reaction...

Repigs protect the pigs.

Eg is still living in his twisted alternate universe...cashing checks from the most wasteful and corrupt agency in Washington, The Military Industrial/REpiglican/Congressional/Complex, AKA NEOCONS....as we all know, if your check comes from Defense Contracts, the war profiteering people who cash those checks, never want to look at economic facts....it's just interesting how those same check cashers, yap incessantly about government Spending, while they call everyone else a hypocrite!!!

Wow, check out the rant from the board troll. She did a great job of doing nothing to refute the fact that Obama is bought and paid for by Wall St. They pumped more money into Obama than any other person in history. According to qtip Obama has been lenient on them and they appreciate it.

In the next election we will see how they react. According to qtip, right now Romney is in the lead but the race for Wall St money is not over. Obama is not going to kick his cash cow in the face so you can believe he will continue to be lenient on them. He laughs every time the looney left looks the other way as they hypocritically pocket Wall St money. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

You have yet to prove that he is 'bought and paid for by Wall St'. Actually, I could help you with that.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The news that Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller has summarily dismissed New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman from the executive committee of the 50 state Attorney General robo-signing and servicing settlement talks is just the latest example of the Obama Administration and their allied Attorneys General’s full court press for a settlement – any settlement – at the expense of real accountability for banks and real relief from homeowners.

The big banks’ dirty fingerprints are all over these latest actions. The Obama Administration and the Attorneys General cannot cave-in to the desire of Wall Street bankers to paper over their massive wrongdoing and throw homeowners under the bus. Homeowners and former homeowners from Iowa, Illinois, Florida, New York and all 50 states must be put first. For years homeowners have been the victims of systemic fraud and they have been waiting years for the banks to be held responsible. As much as there is a need for relief, speed at the expense of quality cannot and will not be accepted.

“Scheiderman was the first AG to say that he wasn’t going to back down on the big banks, and he was the first AG kicked out of the investigation,” says Judy Lonning a member of Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement. “There’s no question who this decision favors.
