Wall Street or Obama the crook? Numbers don’t lie

Oh those OpenSecrets. Barack Obama took nearly 1 Million Dollars from Goldman Sachs. Guess anyone who gives that kind of money gets a bail out. The post Partisan non special interest president has found himself in quite a pickle as he tries to make Wall Street the problem for all of America’s ills… oh Besides Former President George W. Bush. To be fair, Bush took Just about 400,000 dollars while President.

So while Obama makes Wall Street the bad guy, we figured a table of contributions is appropriate here.

This table lists the top donors to this candidate in the 2008 election cycle. The organizations themselves did not donate , rather the money came from the organization’s PAC, its individual members or employees or owners, and those individuals’ immediate families. Organization totals include subsidiaries and affiliates.

Because of contribution limits, organizations that bundle together many individual contributions are often among the top donors to presidential candidates. These contributions can come from the organization’s members or employees (and their families). The organization may support one candidate, or hedge its bets by supporting multiple candidates. Groups with national networks of donors – like EMILY’s List and Club for Growth – make for particularly big bundlers.
