Skip to comments.Wall Street pins its hopes on Hillary Clinton
Posted on 07/08/2014 5:27:40 AM PDT by Citizen Zed
As its relationship with Democrats hits a historic low, Wall Street sees a solution on the horizon: Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Mrs. Clinton was the industry's home state senator, and the financial sector was the second-largest giver to her presidential campaign in 2008. In her post-State Department life, she has been showered with lucrative speaking fees from Goldman Sachs, J. P. Morgan and other financial firms. In her talks, she says it is unproductive to vilify the industry, and she avoids the kind of language that puts off financial executives, as when President Obama referred to "fat cat" bankers in 2009.
But as Wall Street hopes for a warm embrace from the former secretary of state, Mrs. Clinton must grapple with a populist surge coursing through politics, on both the right and the left.
Attacks on Wall Street bailouts are a staple of Tea Party campaigns. Republicans, many of whom deliberately stood on the sidelines during the legislative battle over the Dodd-Frank legislation and have quietly reaped the benefits of Wall Street's disenchantment with Mr. Obama, are now reeling from the primary election defeat of Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, the former majority leader. Mr. Cantor's opponent, David Brat, won in part by attacking Mr. Cantor's ties to the financial world.

Wall Street can get wiped out as far as I am concerned. It’s become anti-American and is working for the destruction of this country.
Crony Capitalism as it’s worst.
Sounds like an encounter with Darwinism is imminent.
Nothing stupider than a capitalist making friends with a communist to let the good times roll. For a while. Until the commie bites.
What was it called back in the 20s under Lenin? New Economic Policy?
Hillary Rodham Izetbegovic Khomeini is a creature of the New World Order.
So is Wall Street.
Wall Street deserves what they get for courting a greedy arrogant bloated stupid lying woman who never achieved anything except hanging onto the coattails of a charming philandering politician
and they deserve not only Alinksy’s handmaiden but his patron who he dedicated his book to- Satan
They are not capitalists. What I don't get is that under these Alinskyites, the rule of law has been undermined. Without rule of law, including property rights, all those shares, all that intellectual property and real property - it is all controlled at the whim of the dictator of the day.
Yes it was called the New Economic Policy. After the revolution GDP fell something like 50%; Lenin needed “get the economy going again.” Of course once Stalin came to power the NEP was halted and the collectivization of the privately owned farms began.
Hillary will make sure Wall Street continues to be subsidized, and the elite left continues to thrive.
If “Wall Street” see Hitlery Clinton as the “solution”, what could possibly be the problem? A sane world?
She’s gotta run as the Wall Street candidate with the current Democrat base comprised of OWS rabble?
Good luck with THAT one!
Hitlery Clinton: candidate of the top .01%.
