Wall Street wakes up: they don’t want to be eaten last by the alligator – or at all

About time

I’ve wondered what possible reason anyone not involved in the Green Energy scam would have for supporting Obama and the Democrats when clearly they support their own demise by doing so. Guess they thought the gator would eat them last?

Well they found the gator eats everyone equally, because…it’s a friggin’ alligator;

The president’s campaign struggled this week to sell out a fundraising dinner Friday at Manhattan’s gilded Four Seasonsrestaurant despite its being hosted by America’s No. 1 capitalist, Warren Buffett, according to people close to the campaign who were not authorized to speak publicly. The dinner for 100 was also a relative bargain at $10,000 a plate; recent fundraisers in Hollywood and New York have gone for $35,800 a pop.

The episode highlights a worrying trend for the Obama campaign. Wall Street, a key contributor to Obama in 2008, seems to be switching allegiances.

“His record has been one of reform and that has been an uncomfortable process for some of the major sources of political cash,” said Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks political fundraising.

Or as one big-ticket Wall Street fundraiser for Obama put it: “It’s more difficult this time around.”


So, yeah. After watching Obama hammer not only their competition, (everyone but GE and the Greens [who are successfully hammering themselves]), suddenly they ask themselves; “We give these guys money why, again?”

Protection rackets don’t come with guarantees?
