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

Oh, please. I’m sure Obama gets just as much money from unnamed foreign sources with ties to terrorists.
Soros covers all those bases.
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."
Fatboy’s turning on the Marxist. Interesting.
Fatboy isn’t turning on Obama, he is disappointed that Obama is not STALIN....you must keep in mind that they want a 100% socialist strongman.
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!
If he did become president, they would have to super-size that bathtub that Taft got stuck in.
So thats who ate Captain Obvious.
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.
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. :’)
Billionaire business mogul Penny Pritzker is a member of one of Americas 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 Obamas presidential campaign. She was the chair of Chicago-based Superior Banks 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.
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 Superiors owners promoted sub-prime home mortgages.
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.
