***President Obama received nearly $1,000,000 in contributions from Goldman Sachs in the 2008 election cycle - a new record for a candidate from executives and employees of one company. A man out for the little guy? yeah right! Many GS folks are in the White House.

They continue to protect Obama.

DISCLAIMER: I realize ALL politicians get this money from mostly the same companies and the liking.

But no politician had the audacity to tell the American people that fat cats are bad and big money and profit making is bad.

That’s a joke right? No way will he return contributions when this whole deal is probably a set up to begin with.

gotta luv this obama. he shakes 'em down and then sic's the SEC on 'em.

However, we know it's all smoke and mirrors.

Anyway, all roads of regulatory failure lead to Chris Dodd.

How far do you think any of this will get?

Yeah, I believe OpenSecrets is liberal Dem group. Can’t have anyone using contributor data to undermine the One, after all. That info is only supposed to be used against Republicans.

The Drudge link went to opensecrets. The link went dead. The question is why.

“University of California $1,591,395.” Oh boy. Some more of my money (along with union dues and taxpayer support for PBS/NPR) going to support the democratic party.

It’s back up there.

Seems to me that Palin is making a weekly address; calling out Obama on anything and everything.

The best part of Palin taking shots at Obama is that he is such a narcissist that he simply can’t stop himself from responding. The end effect is a “twofer”; PR when Palin exposes Obama and press when he responds.

The weekly exposure may hurt Palin in the long run, and I suspect that she knows this, but at least someone is calling this tyrant out for what he is.
