Skip to comments.Former Wall Street Obama Backers Switch to Romney (Big wigs and power brokers for Romney)

A large group of 2008 Barack Obama supporters are now banking on Mitt Romney for the upcoming presidential election.
Thats according to a report from Fox News that says a shift in Wall Street support could mean as much as a $150,000 boost for Romneys campaign.
I think Romney could at least split Wall Street with Obama, which is something McCain really didnt do, said Charlie Gasparino, a reporter for Fox Business News. None of the expected bank presidents showed up to a recent fundraiser for President Obama, he added.
They’ll control whoever ends up in the White House. It’s a tidy system.
Outta the frying pan and into the fire. It’s a debatable subject as to which would be worse, Obama or Romney. I will never have to choose between the two.
150,000 is this from the onion, LOL,
I’m no Romney supporter but it’s a pretty safe bet that the man knows more about macroeconomics than the neighborhood organizer does.
What I don’t understand is why Wall Street ever supported Obama to begin with.
I wouldn’t read too much into it, other than Wall Street’s opinion on Obama’s re-election chances. It is all about business.
The Dems could screw over Wall Street every which way, including Wednesday, and business would still give the Dems most of the bulk of campaign contributions if Wall street thought they’d get re-elected, because business has to still work with the feds.
Unless, of course, there is a nominee who captures the White House in 2012...and who built their victory by using the army known as the citizens of the United States as opposed to lobbyists, special interests, unions, and big business. That kind of President is very hard to control.
Of course, she's not yet declared her candidacy, has she?
Rush talks frequently about the myth that wall street is a conservative bastion.
If you can’t figure out who is the least of the EVIL’
Romney has promised Wall Street that he’ll get Cap & Trade passed if elected.
Well, this is progress.
Romney could well be the Bob Dole of 2012. If you want 4 more years of Obama, you want Romney to be his opponent in the general election. Your second choice is probably "W" (Rick W Perry) because you can run against George W. Bush and his policies again.
IMO, Obama vs. Romney = Obama victory, and Obama vs. Perry is too close to call right now. Obama vs. any other truly conservative Republican is a loss for Obama.
This is the election when conservatives need to stop holding their noses and get a real conservative on the ticket. If the Ruling class Republicans thwart that, the country is lost until we either clean up the Republican party or replace it with a truly conservative, constitutional party.
Not this time around. Romney is dead meat. The Usurping Marxist Onada should be dead meat, too. But he may yet pull a rabbit out of the hat. The Constitution means nothing to him and him; and his commie buddies will attempt to get away with massive voter fraud—again.
The One may even be plotting to create chaos in the US so Onada can request a UN army come here to “keep order”. Now where do you think they would find that army? I’m sure Onada’s commie buddy Putin would be glad to oblige.

They aren't really crooks. They're honest, ethical businessmen that were driven to a life of crime. The devil made them do it. If we'd just leave them alone, they would conduct their business ethically and fairly!
Beating Obama is all about getting the indie and Reagan Democrat vote. Neither of them think in terms or conservative or liberal, they vote on “feelings.” Lets face it, anyone that is capable of voting for Reagan in 80/84 but then voting for Obama in 08 is not voting on well thought out principle.
Its going to be all about the economy and a sellable image. Despite constant media bashing Reagan was eventually able to show an image to the public that was very likeable and confidence inspiring, so much so that even union dems dumped Carter for the anti union Reagan. And they did it twice, even after Reagan fired all those PATCO workers. We are going to need someone who can do the same in order to beat Obama. Who is it going to be?
