By the Numbers: Who Did Wall Street Buy in 2008? ^ | October 12, 2011 | Kate Hicks

Amid the jumble of contradictory, foolish, and entirely nonsensical sentiments bubbling up at Occupy Wall Street, one clearly rises above the rest: Wall Street is evil. Corporations suck. They need to keep their money out of politics and stop corrupting our elected officials.

And while some of these protesters understand that Obama, the man they elected to the highest office in the land in 2008, is the real puppet of Wall Street, some of them still need a lesson in that math subject Obama claims to love so much.

Take, for example, the gentleman I spoke to at Occupy DC last Thursday. While waving his anti-Goldman Sachs sign and proclaiming himself, "anti-Big Bank USA," yet pro-Obama, he couldn't tell me who donated the most money to Obama's presidential campaign.

Happy to oblige, I produced a list of the top donors to Obama and McCain's campaigns--and if you're an "anti-Big Bank USA" Obama supporter, you sure as heck won't like his numbers. Below, you will see a comparison between Obama and McCain's top twenty campaign contributors:


Some highlights:

Some review questions for you: Who did Wall Street buy in 2008? Who would have been more hurt by restrictions on corporate donors? Which party has corporate interests at heart?

The numbers say it all. Class dismissed.

Well, well, but I wonder if the demonstraters are smart enough to feel silly if they ever learn of this.

And I don’t want to hear any whining from Univ. of CA students over tuitions. Pay up to support the Dems, suckers.

Be a great thing to fly across NYC and other Occupy the Streets protest.

Would love to see the looks on their faces as that banner flies by.
