Reminder:: Obama Gets More Money From Wall Street Than McCaine (not that I would vote for either)

Put simply, the Man of Change doesn’t threaten the status quo in the least.

Freddie and Fannie spent more than $200 million on lobbying over the past decade, most of it going to Democrats, and they were “re-nationalized” with bipartisan support. Lehman Brother, which Paulson thankfully resisted bailing out, has accounted for almost$400,000 in donations to the Obama campaign. It’s thus likely that Obama would have been more assiduous in helping out his Wall Street buddies than Paulson and the Bush administration.
