Posted on 10/06/2011 12:34:59 PM PDT by Qbert
One-third of the Obama re-election campaign's record-breaking second-quarter fundraising came from sources associated with the financial sector, the Washington Post reports.
That percentage is up from the 20% of donations that came from Wall Street donors in 2008, and contradicts reports that a growing Wall Street animosity towards the Obama administration may jeopardize his re-election bid.
Obama's $86 million haul set a record for incumbent fundraising at this point in an election campaign. While the campaign has downplayed the larger donations by emphasizing that the average donation was $69, it also released a list of contributions by "bundlers;" those who can "bundle" more than $50,000 in contributions from friends, relatives and business associates.

I have been looking for this information ever since the ‘protestors’ started stinking up Wall Street.
This never had ANYTHING to do with Wall Street, it’s all about PROPAGANDA...
The Radical left is playing the Sheeple for fools again, and the scary part is how many are FALLING FOR IT...
I think they know this and a lot of them are not particularly Obama fans (he has not been Leftist enough for them).
Nevertheless, it does throw a kink into the Dems’ plans to run against the banks. It will be difficult to pull off unless someone other than Obama is their nominee.

“The Radical left is playing the Sheeple for fools again, and the scary part is how many are FALLING FOR IT...”
They always have, always will.
Someone really needs to inform the little Occupiers of this fact.
Bursting their bubbles is so much fun.
Of course, if their moms wake them up in time, they will still vote for Obama.
“Of course, if their moms wake them up in time, they will still vote for Obama.”
Yep. They’ll probably fall for the propaganda the way they always do.
Although it has been completely ignored by the media, there is ample evidence to say that the "September/October Surprise" events were triggered by manipulation in order to elect Barack Obama.
Sarah Palin had reinvigorated a lagging McCain campaign. In the days prior to the collapse, Obama/Biden had been losing ground.
Then, "it" happened.
This report discusses extensive research that shows significant red flags of danger to the worlds economy from what appears to be market manipulation in the global financial markets, which includes trading in common stocks, options, futures, commodities, currencies, oil, and bonds. Two companies are at the heart of this trading and they consistently work in concert. These firms became, virtually overnight, the largest traders in the U.S. financial markets. These companies provide a one-stop-shop for trade execution, back office clearing and bookkeeping that cater to hedge funds and small broker dealers. To give perspective, the amount of trading executed by these two firms in October 2008 exceeded the trading of securities firms Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Merrill Lynch combined in the NASDAQ market participant reports.
$5 Trillion dollars was traded in a very short time period. The US financial system came very, very close to total collapse.
This was no accident.
To this day, it has not been fully investigated to explained.
There are many on Wall Street who are hardened Democrats - and that is a FACT. This is no hiding how much money was contributed to Obama. There was a group of individuals who triggered this economic terrorism as a fall surprise so that Obama would win election.
That isn't "black helicopter" talk - it happened.
I just have to wonder: if they were capable of doing that to us in 2008, what will they unleash during this next election?
Love those protesters! Obama’s going to be selling dinners for $3 a plate soon...
Big, evil industries funded which party?
It may be true but since when did leftists care for facts or reason.
Better tact is to build on Obama’s anti-semitism. His attacks on Wall Street is simple another attack on Jews, whether they are suckers enough to fund him or not.
Protection money is like that
This is shameful for American business. These are fascists.
Some other starling [sic] findings in the report, based almost exclusively on reviewing basic trading data, include:I'm just gob-smacked upside the head.

above blog's by-line - aka 'tagline' in FreeperSpeak - from the above site:
I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations. - James MadisonFrom the aforementioned blog's "about me":
My name is Steve and by day I am an optimistic 40+ year old middle class family man who works for a small business doing electrical work. I couldnt be happier. I have a perfect wife and two great teenage boys. There is nothing in this world that I love more than my family. Family, and extended family, that is the backbone of America and they are my backbone.I provide that in an effort of vetting the a source cited. It would appear that Mr. Pink Eyes should feel right at home here at Jim's World.
But when the sun goes down and the boys are asleep I turn into the person that you read here. Something comes over me and my passion for politics overtakes me. I cant help it, I cant help myself. I become the Patriotic Dissenter, a part of the loyal opposition, and proud member of the Conservative Resistance. And now according to Homeland Security I am a right wing extremist and potential domestic terrorist.
For my first three years as a blogger I posted under my alter-ego, Mr. Pink Eyes, but now I have come out of the closet (so to speak) and post under my real name...
That being said, and notwithstanding, the reason why AIG is an issue is because of Maurice Strong.
While I'm unable to personally vet AFN.org - they seem to be solid - it is the like of both of the individuals mentioned who are the tyrants we have been countlessly been warned to ward against; governments are merely their vassals.
My tagline should be illuminating (if not edifying).
I will tell you that because of personal issues I've been pretty scarce around these parts lately, and as much as I hate to be a conspiracy monger, these two individuals cause so MUCH revulsion and loathing in my innnards I'm probably going to die an early and very egregiously painful death as a result of necrosis of my innards; maybe if I just don't worry 'bout it everything will just get better / go away.
Yeah, that or or butterflys, kittens and rainbows be shooting out my ass and a winged-unicorn will just appear to fly me over all that shit, er, I mean Skittles. No I mean I'd shoot Skittles out my butt too.
Wait...Nevermind that. I'm just fooling you. I don't have a winged-unicorn. But I HAVE been scarce, and FIRST thread I read is this one. After a bit of due dilligence there's only one word that escaped from my lips: [explitive delitive].
As a matter of curiousity, HOW do the chicoms benefit if the US and/or world economy collapses? Are their holdings of our debt secured by, say, feral land, or is it just the "full faith and credit of the US"? Could we default then shoot 'em the bird? Or for that matter how do the world money changers benefit if it all comes crashing down? I'm afraid I don't have the mental acuity to wade through the repercussions.
I think somebody is stirring the pot. I believe that my tag-line is of extreme importance. The issue that I presented on this thread too...
