Wall Street Giving Its Love To The GOP

Wall Street Giving Its Love To The GOP

In politics showing love is showing the money. In politics love is money -- or is the closest thing to love that you are going to get.


 This morning Washington Post has an article called, "Wall Street shifting political contributions to Republicans."  You can read the article at this link: (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/02/23/AR201002...).


Here is my take  on the topic: The big fat Wall Street commercial banks and investment firms, who had their bacon saved by the American tax payers, are so ticked-off with the Democrats for reminding  those fat rascals that the American tax payers saved them, with practically free federal money, that insured their recovery, so that they would survive to do their part to help keep the economy from tanking, and did not save them so that they could keep gains earned from the practically  free money in their fat greedy hands, holding the gains as huge profits, giving themselves huge bonuses and putting very little or nothing back into the economy by lending to small businesses and worthy consumers  -- the greedy rogues are so ticked-off that they have thumbed their noses at the Democrats and have turned to the Republicans, giving the Party of No,  which has said, NO to holding Wall Street responsible for its excesses --  big cash contributions!


Well, you can say that Wall Street is only returning home to their traditional pals, the Republicans. The majority of Wall Street support left the Repubs briefly towards the end of the Dubya Bush years. George W had wrecked the economy, damaged relationships with key trading partners,  and messed up so badly, that the money boys and gals  turned to the Democrats. Wall Street wanted a change from Dubya, but not a change that would cause Wall Street to be called on to be a  responsible participant in the economy, and to take no action that would harm the American people.
