Obama's Chief of Staff is a former JP Morgan executive. His former primary economic advisor, Larry Summers, was one of the biggest proponents for repealing Glass-Steagal. His National Jobs Council is littered with banking executives, including from Citigroup and UBS -- not too mention GE's Jeff Immelt leads the Council. Obama has refused to prosecute any bankers for fraud during the 2008 collapse. And his Adminstration worked simultaneously with Ben Bernake's $600 billion money printing program of November 2010 - June 2011.

Obama is a Wall Street puppet.

It gets harder and harder to see Obama as someone who can effectively help to rid our nation of the corruption between "Big Finance" and DC.

This is, in part, why I will Write-In Elizabeth Warren/Russ Feingold for president in the Democratic primary.

As a lifelong social justice activist I could not vote for Obama in 2008 because I saw that he was lying and manipulating social justice supporters to steal their votes. That he was and is a right-wing pandering authoritarian.

Elizabeth Warren is hated and feared by Wall Street. That should give her the strongest credibility for OWS voters in 2012.

I'm voting for Obama, I hope he lets loose with liberalism in his second term. But I will check in on this lady, I think women in general don't put up w corporate and Wall st crap as easily as men. (Sorry men, but it's true at this point in history.) A WOMAN blew the whistle on Enron, don't forget. You want real change, make women half the politicians. They care about women, children, and animals, men have been trained to chase money at all costs.

I agree with your sympathies but not your decision on Obama.

Obama is a wholly owned tool of Wall Street.

A vote for Barack Obama is a vote for the status quo and against the economic and social justice interests of the American people.

Obama didn't need the Wallstreet contributions.

He had raised millions of dollars of donations from people.

Seems like Harvard is a criminal factory.

Not factual..What Moore said was:

"If that's the Truth, and Wall street already has their Man, and his name is Barak Obama.."

I also noticed that the title on the blog was misleading in quoting Moore incorrectly as well.

I am an editor of a Fact Finding Web Site that researches Crime on Wall Street... ( 7 yrs ).. And i would NEVER Miss Quote another for any purpose to Serve my point.

This is how the public gets fooled, lulled, cajoled, and out and out pushed into submission!

The problem with occupy wallstreet is that they think in 2d OWS thinks you stop wallstreet everything will be ok. Until you realize that wallstreet and government are one. Government is wallstreet muscle and wall street is the blood giving money. You want less government and regulations because that is the muscle that is use to hold the people down. Yes government and regulation are needed but the question is how much. We do need more regulations on bank and wall st the best way we can start is by putting back the laws that wall street lobbied to get rid of. Than shrink government so people can have more money and power.

That doughnut eating slob does not care about me, OWS and no one else, except for himself

I agree too, but leave doughnuts out of it. They are delicious.
