Michael Moore: "Wall Street Has Their Man And His Name Is Barack Obama"
RealClearPolitics ^ | December 7, 2011

Posted on 12/07/2011 5:22:25 PM PST by presidio9

MICHAEL MOORE, ON CNN: Well, "The Washington post" three weeks ago had this investigation and they said that President Obama has now raised more money from Wall Street and the banks for this election cycle than all -- than all eight Republicans combined. I don't want to say that, because if that's the truth, that Wall Street already has their man and his name is Barack Obama, then we've got a much bigger problem.

But I think President Obama, if he were here in the room, the question I would ask him is why are they your number one contributors? Why are you taking this money?

MORGAN: It's fascinating to find out why they're doing it. I'll ask him.

MOORE: What are they expecting in return in the second term from you? Right now, here's what we do know. Goldman Sachs was your number one contributor the 2008 election. And we have not seen anyone from Goldman Sachs go to jail. We have not seen

I don’t care who the messenger is; if the message is true, I applaud him for saying it.

So it's settled fact! Moore is Fat, Dumb, Stupid, and takes no reponsibilities whatsoever for his flawed insight and advice to the American populace.

Moore took Obama to the prom. You'd think he'd show some spine and finish out the night with dignity. It's like he and Mathews are in a race to regret or something?

I don’t know, but I don’t see Obama carrying even Illinois without 110% support from those clowns.

A couple of other things he said to Piers Morgan last night:

He is not a member of the 1%, because he has only had a handful of multi-million dollar earning years in his life. Most years, he claims, he makes very little. This is the house he lives in. Even if it weren't he is outright lying, unless he gives all of his royalty checks away to the cause.

Frank Luntz is a top policy guy for the right. Lutz is a pollster, and a frequent Hannity guest. Unless you are a regular FOX News viewer (something experience on this website has told me most conservatives are not), you have probably never heard of him.

Occupy Wall Street has been successful because unnamed "Conservative bigshots" are supposedly telling their followers to stop using the word "capitalism." Apparently OWS has succeeded in making the word toxic for the first time in 400 years.

The right is terrified of him. (falling over on the couch and and smothering a baby)

So when Michael Moore wants to capatalize an upcoming film project, he goes to Occupy Street for investors, or Wallstreet for investors?

Because the average ‘occupyidiocy’ types have no money!

For some odd reason, Wall Street gave Obama a butt load of cash. BP gave Obama more money than they had ever given any other candidate. Even the Insurance companies poured out huge donations for him.

our pResident is not exactly "a man of the people."

"Most years, he claims, he makes very little."

Then that's completely his choice. He could easily make half a million a year on speaking gigs alone.

Wall Street is owned by Democrats. They wink and nod back and forth all the time. What, you think that journalism and Democrats tell the truth about Wall Street? They don't tell the truth about anything.
Why hasn't that happened? President Obama, we the people need you to take them by the throat and say, damn it, this is the United States of America; you don't steal from the working people of this country. And this is the way it's going to be.
Guess why that hasn't happened, Mikey!

Whatever Moore's faults, can anybody point to anything he's done that resembles Corzine's apparent rip off of (how many?) millions?

Like most here, I can't stand Moore, but he's talking some sense, isn't he? It is Obama and the 'Rats who are getting all the kickbacks in exchange for the cover they've been providing for "internal repossession" game playing, dumb-ass Euro-bond market, over-leveraged criminals.

That's one party that needs busting up.

Thanks presidio9.

There’s a spokesman for the downtrodden. His message will especially resonate with persons of color, whatever their walk of life. Wait, no it won’t.

It should be a nice addition to everyone’s Facebook stream, though. Welcome to the age of antisocial media. :’)

http://www.campaignmoney.com/finance.asp?type=in&cycle=08&criteria=pritzker&fname=penny

 

Billionaire business mogul Penny Pritzker is a member of one of America’s richest families and was the Finance Chair for the presidential campaign of Barack Obama.  It was Pritzker that led the prolific, and illegal, fundraising that helped power Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.  She was the chair of Chicago-based Superior Bank’s board for five years. 

Pritzker was into subprime lending before it became all the rage starting in around 2000.  Prtizker's chairmanship was to concentrate on sub prime lending, principally on home mortgages, but for a while in subprime auto lending, too, after the Pritzkers' bank acquired its wholesale mortgage organization division, Alliance Funding, in December 1992.

Back then they called it "predatory lending."

Superior Bank went belly up in 2001 with over $1 billion in insured and uninsured deposits; 1,406 depositors lost much of their life savings.  This collapse came amid harsh criticism of how Superior’s owners promoted sub-prime home mortgages.

On Nov. 1 [2002] the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. pointed the finger at Ernst & Young, Superior’s auditor, in a fraud suit filed in federal court here.  But that action came two months after a group of Superior depositors accused the bank’s owners and directors, including two members of the Pritzker family, of racketeering....

[snip]

...Pritzker is chairman of Classic Residence by Hyatt, luxury senior living communities in 11 states; chairman of The Parking Spot, which owns and operates off-airport parking facilities in nine cities; chairman of the credit data company TransUnion and chairman of Pritzker Realty.  She also sits on the board of Global Hyatt and plays a role in numerous non-profit groups, including serving as chairman of the Olympic village portion of Chicago’s bid to win the 2016 Summer Games.

Just like to say that I appreciate the way you personally thank people for threads you find particularly interesting. I am sure I’m not alone in saying that it feels nice to be appreciated.

This is comming from a guy who usually has a couple of people a month lobbying JimRob directly to get him thrown off of this website.
