Economics Journalist Robert Kuttner on the Most Serious Financial Crisis Since the Great Depression”:“This is the Result of Rightwing Ideology and the Political Power of Wall Street / January 23, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/3burrh
Amid growing fears of a worldwide recession, the Federal Reserve slashed a key interest rate by three-quarters of a percentage point on Tuesday, the biggest single cut in nearly a quarter of a century. Meanwhile, President Bush and congressional leaders pledged to work together on a stimulus measure that would inject about $150 billion in additional money into the economy. But many economists are skeptical over whether any measures can turn around a severe slump in the housing market and the subprime mortgage crisis, signs of growing unemployment and weakening consumer spending and the added blow of record high oil prices. We speak to veteran economics journalist Robert Kuttner and Robert Weissman, co-director of the corporate accountability group Essential Action and editor of Multinational Monitor magazine

Obama Gets Edge on Clinton, Giuliani on Wall Street
April 17, 2007 / http://tinyurl.com/ycngxxc
April 17 (Bloomberg)-- Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama ran ahead of New York Senator Hillary Clinton and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani on their home turf, raising cash from the biggest investment banks on Wall Street.
Obama raised $479,209 from employees at the banks in the first quarter, according to Federal Election Commission filings. That was better than Giuliani, a Republican who collected $473,442. Clinton, Obama's Democratic rival, raised $447,625. The figures are based on employers listed by donors; in some cases, the names are missing or incomplete.
The employees of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and UBS AG gave Obama more than a combined $260,000, boosting his showing. The Illinois senator's top fundraisers include David Heller, a managing director at Goldman, and Robert Wolf, chief executive officer of UBS Americas. Neither was available for comment.
``I've never had a higher hit ratio in terms of asking people for money and them saying yes,'' said James Torrey, an Obama fundraiser and chairman and chief executive officer of New York-based Torrey Associates, a $1.3 billion fund of funds.``There are one or two or three people who are zealots within these firms and when they get behind a candidate, other people within these firms follow

Lobbyists playing key role in 2012 fundraising
October 27 2011 / http://tinyurl.com/3mxyjtl
K Street is playing an increasingly central role in the 2012 presidential race, as hundreds of lobbyists representing some of the world’s largest corporations and trade groups pour money into Republican coffers.
The main beneficiary so far is Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and equity-fund executive, who is banking on strong support from the business community to propel his White House bid.

Yes, he knows he will find anti-obamacare allies amongst those nuts. Funny, I thought both houses had approved obamacare, including the supreme court which, according to you, had decided immediately upon reflecting on the case, to reject it. So much for your prediction.
And, Rogue, again, you blame a local newspaper for misleading you with reference to that Jacksonville mayoral election. What a joke. I recall, you were drooling, salivating at the prospect of a tea partyer being elected mayor. You had your dancing shoes all ready, then kept them in reserve for that SURE and CERTAIN Romney victory. Who do you blame for THAT prediction?
Then the prediction on the stock market crash - it's what, now, a year late? But you know, you'll be right on that one. Eventually. It will crash one day, it did under GWB in 2008, it has to, this is cyclical and allows smart brokers to reap huge profits, ex : drive it low by selling, making an initial profit, buy it back when it bottoms, sell it medium or medium-high and make another profit. And so it goes. It'll happen, Rogue, bound to, and yes , you will have been right. You'll be off by only 2 or 3 years, is all.
There you go exaggerating again. The stock market WILL have a correction of at least 10% just as soon as Bernanke stops printing Obama Bucks. Most people thought he would stop printing Obama Bucks early this year which brings us up to WHY??? Maybe the economy is not doing as well as YOU think it is!!!
As far as polls go, I don't make polls. I rely on others to do the polling. And a ten point lead going into an election is usually considered to be a sure thing.
Why Romney had a 1-2% lead a month before the election and Obama won by 4% which is a shift on 5-6%. But in the Jacksonville mayaral election it was a 11% shift in just two weeks.

You have that correct, small donations.

I did not vote for him either time but he was the first president in history that received the most small donations from average Americans.

I thought wrongly, because of that fact, he might have implemented policies for average Americans instead of the wealthy few who own most of Washington DC.

When Bush took office in 2001, the federal budget had a $128 billion surplus; when he left in 2009, the annual deficit was projected to exceed $1 trillion, according to the CBO./

Fox Nation falsely attributes entire FY09 deficit to Obama
October 09, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/ylm3xbm
The Fox Nation falsely attributed the entire fiscal year 2009 deficit to President Obama, using the headline "Obama Triples Budget Deficit to $1.4 Trillion" to link to an Associated Press article reporting on the Congressional Budget Office's (CBO) most recent budget review estimate. In fact, only a small portion of the fiscal year 2009 deficit is due to Obama's policies; in January, before he took office or signed any legislation, CBO projected that, based on policies set under President Bush and economic conditions at the time, the deficit for fiscal year 2009 would reach $1.2 trillion.

He did. Then he eschewed that formula for the widely-accepted Gov't matching funds as he realised he could garner as much that way with less canvassing and therefore work. Is that not how all the others except Nader and McCarthy did it?

No, it was not unusual for "places of learning" to back the Dems. That is where all the pseudo-intellectuals are!

Average tip in Canada in restaurant is 15%. It's what we tip in the U.S, and we're labelled cheap. Seeing what the min wage is over there, I can understand why.

Would you mind proving that statement? And proving that the U.S. waiter makes more.

What would you rather make,$11 and hour with 10% tips or 15% tip at $4.00 and hour? Oh, and all those minimum wage employees have free no-premium health care.

Ask me for proof of the 15% in Canada. Go ahead.
