Hey #OccupyWallStreet , Obama Has Taken More Money From Wall Street Than Any President in the Last 20 Years

Time for the loons of Lower Manhattan to pay attention (from Daily Caller):
Obama bites the banks that feed him -- Wall Street is bad, right? The bankers are ruining America, correct? Well, that's still no reason not to take their money, according to The Greatest President Ever. TheDC's John Rossamando reports: "Despite his rhetorical attacks on Wall Street, a study by the Sunlight Foundation's Influence Project shows that President Barack Obama has received more money from Wall Street than any other politician over the past 20 years, including former President George W. Bush. In 2008, Wall Street's largesse accounted for 20 percent of Obama's total take, according to Reuters... An examination of the numbers shows that Obama took in $421,242 in campaign contributions in 2008 from Bank of America's executives, PACs and employees, which exceeded its prior record contribution of $329,761 to President George W. Bush in 2004... When asked by The Daily Caller to comment about President Obama's credibility when it comes to criticizing Wall Street, the White House declined to reply." Of course they did. What could they possibly say? "It doesn't count when we get in bed with the evil bankers, because HEY LOOK OVER THERE!!!" Those bankers must feel like suckers these days, along with everybody else who ever believed in Obama.
I bet he won't get quite so much money next year. Oh sure, some will still contribute because they just can't help themselves, but a lot of people who fell for the rainbows and unicorns have learned the hard way they at best they're just pawns in Obama's chess game. They're not going to play anymore.
