Obama is stealing Wall Street from Romney
Market watch ^ | Sept. 18, 2012, 6:43 a.m. EDT | By David Weidner, MarketWatch

Commentary: It’s not about positions, issues or values

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — When it comes to U.S. presidential politics, lose Wall Street and you’ve lost the election.

Goodbye, Mitt.

It’s over.

I know, I know. Many of you are going to call me liberal patsy, a mouthpiece for President Obama. You’re going to say I’m in the tank, a Democratic hack. Blah, blah, blah.

Whatever. You can disagree with me, but you can’t argue with facts, and you can’t dispute history. If it were the other way around, I’d call it as such.

The fact is, Romney is behind.

Not one arrest over bank failures. No one from Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Goldman Sachs, AIG, etc. No one arrested or prosecuted from Wall Street.

Weren’t these the same hacks betting 9/1 that Obamacare would be repealed?

Perhaps the singularly lamest lede graf of the political season thus far.

Dave: You’re a liberal patsy, a mouthpiece for President Obama. You’re in the tank, a Democratic hack, a dupe and a pin-head. Don’t reproduce. Drop dead.

At the start of Obama’s 3rd term he’s just going to take all their money and clean out everyone’s bank accounts,the 47 % must be fed

As anyone who has ever worked on Wall Street can tell you: it is lousy with Democrats. The notion of Wall Street as a GOP enclave is a myth.

Rasmussen: Romney up

In a liberal mind it’s social justice for the government to have all the money.

And if that is true why is there so many public sector unions?

Obama may try to get everyone’s 401K’s in his next term. Third term definitely.

Market is up 8% for the year. I bought Google in 2008 at $250 a share, it’s now at $700! Exxon Mobil at $91.
Sorry Mitt, but obama has been very good for my portfolio. If obama can promise 4 more years of this, I say bring it on.

Wall Street loves QE3. Why the heck would they want Romney?

Absolutely not....

What I saw in the piece is why the MSM are skewing the polls....like they are ( Much different than Rasmussen).

Hope that is Clear!

Obama has been very good for the portfolio my rear end. The market hit bottom right about the time the FOREIGNER was fraudulently elected. It had no where else to go but up. He has ZERO to do with it. If he was not president the dow would probably be 18,000+

Wall Street was always 100% behind Obama.

Yeah, yeah, yeah! Blah, blah, blah! This idiot if full of bull spit. Wall Street knows that Obozo is bad for business.

Moreover, Obama has been better to Wall Street than either would care to admit: low interest rates, expanded bailouts, monetary easing, watered-down regulations and a lack of prosecution for crisis-era misdeeds.

Hmmm. Slackerjack (or, rather, slackjawed idiot) has been banned or suspended. Interesting.

This is how Romney ought to spin the QE III:

Look 47% and the middle class, Obama is telling you that you are the top of his agenda. QE III is nothing but a political payoff to the Wall Streeters he calls fat cats. The real joke is on you, 47% and the middle class. Obama is going behind your backs and putting the real money and allegiance on those corporations he has been telling you are big and evil.

When all is done, he will have screwed everybody but his cronies . . . and you are not one of them

Nothing more than an Obama troll. He made it through the gate but got zapped anyway.

Actually not. Wall Street has been decidedly behind Romney for most of this cycle.

The Communist DemocRATS are the “rich and greedy big money boys” now. Republicans gave it up and are now a bunch of peons.

Well he’s gotta pump up the value of your 401K before he confiscates it, you know

This is a test to see if you were truly suspended, just as you should have been for supporting Obama, in any way whatsoever.

I don’t believe the Obama lover, thus democrat supporter, has been suspended.

I think his profile page is faux. I was able to send a test post to him.

BTW.... I have done well with the market, but it has little to nothing to do with Obama and everything to do with me, my nerve and mostly luck.... and God’s blessings.

Unless the mods remove the troll’s posts, it is possible to post comments connected to that person’s post. I checked his “profile” page, and that’s where I discovered he’s been banned or suspended. If you attempt to send him a private message you might find that will be unsuccessful.

Well, I tested my hypothesis that sending private messages to a “banned” FReeper won’t work. My hypothesis was incorrect. We’ll now see if the cretin still has the ability to respond to a private message, if he/she is so inclined to respond.

It likely won’t and it’s probably out trying to clean off it’s boot.
