7 thoughts on “DNC Ad on GOP – “Putting Wall Street Before Main Street”

  1. You know, you might want to at least add some commentary if you are going to post these videos. Otherwise I think everyone is capable of heading on over to the DNC site to watch this drivel.

    And by the way, “Wall Street puts its money behind Obama” (Reuters, http://uk.reuters.com/article/idUKNOA53525520080605)

    “Obama Top Fundraiser on Wall Street” (Washington Post, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/04/17/AR2007041701688.html)

    “Obama Raking In the Wall Street Cash” (Newsvine.com, http://wharrison55.newsvine.com/_news/2008/09/15/1868384-obama-raking-in-the-wall-street-cash)
    As of Sept ’08..”$600K he’s collected from Goldman Sachs.”

    I know the mythology was that all his campaign cash came in from $5 and $10 donors, but that’s not reality. Looks like HE’S the Wall Street guy.

    1. I’d suggest that you go to the DNC to check the videos if you so desire. I’m posting them here as a convenience for your comments and those of others who read Blogging Blue.

  2. President: Democrat
    U.S. House: Democrat Majority
    U.S. Senate: Democrat Majority

    WI Governor: Democrat
    State Assembly: Democrat Majority
    State Senate: Democrat Majority

    Considering the above facts, don’t you find it the slightest bit odd the DNC, DPW, and rank and file Dems still think it’s reasonable to blame Republicans for their problems?!

    1. Given the filibuster and the shenanigans of the GOP, I think it is quite appropriate to blame the GOP when they are the reason for the lack of progress. I also think that when appropriate the Democrats like Blue Dogs that are going against their party should also get some negative press.

  3. Wall Street taking risk as the cause behind the recession? A bit too simplistic, don’t you think? I’m guessing that 85% of congress can’t explain how a credit default swap works.

    In anyevent, wasn’t it main street the real culprit behind the housing crash? After all, Wall Street was only betting on the continued success of the American Dream and Homeownership for everyone. Shame on them. FNM and FRE should have only written mortgages for those of use who could put 20% down.
