his money comes from Wall Street, he takes to task small business and the middle class
First election, yes....Wall Street was totally cool with Mitt 2nd time around. And Wall Street was screaming bloody murder when he tried to hold them accountable via his own Warren Commission. Are you seriously suggesting that nothing he has done has angered the banking community? (and more telling, that the right didn't totally have the banking community's back when he did?)
They hung Warren out to dry, she was politically expendable. He had cover. If you think he's "tough on financial reform", you are less informed than I thought you were.
I totally disagree, I think the Obama administration really wanted Warren to have some real power, but when the opposition got stiff it was clear they weren't going to the mats for her. I never said he was tough. I said he tried......nowhere near as hard as I wanted him to, but more than any other president in recent memory (of course, that's the sort of remark that gets called Bush bashing in here)
