Obama Criticizes 'fat cats' of Wall Street.

But yet they are ever so present at his fundraiser. Does this sound like an ass kissing campaigning politician?

“We’ve gone through some stormy times,” he told the Wall Street donors. “And I know sometimes it’s made you guys a little seasick. But right now the waters are calm.”

  • Actually, many of these fat cats did not attend this most recent fund raiser. Obama was jilted. LOL I guess we will have to wait till 2012 to see how they really feel.

  • The biggest benefactor in campaign contributions from Goldman Sachs was....you guessed it, Obama.

    Obama is also in bed with Goldman Sachs and Al Gore in establishing CCX, which will be the exchange for "Carbon Credits" as soon as he can get the climate change bill passed. Then they will all be rich, rich, rich!

  • The democrats are not the only party in bed with Wall Street. . Ever heard of the Republicans ? The Bush administration was cluttered with Wall Street people, one of the reasons why warnings of the impending problems and danger of collapse and failure was ignored and financial deregulation was vigorously pursued regardless of the consequences. The Fat Cats really did rule then as poor old George had no understanding whatsoever of economics and money markets.
