From, “Dozens of Wall Street executives who supported President Obama in 2008 have donated to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign this year.”

In an article by Jake Interrante and Bob Cusack, they share a review of fundraising data, which shows that sixty-seven people who work in the financial sector and had contributed to Obama in 2008 are now giving their money to Mitt Romney. This is not earth-shattering news but it is worth noting.

Jumping ship comes in the wake of Obama’s bullying rhetoric on Wall Street, notably when our president was pushing for what is known as the “Dodd-Frank financial reform law”.

These sixty-seven flip-floppers are employed by a large number of banks, private equity firms and hedge-fund companies, including Credit Suisse, The Blackstone Group, Stanwich Group and Goldman Sachs.

“One of the donors is Joshua Harris of Apollo Management, who recently bought the Philadelphia 76ers. Others include Oscar Schafer of OSS Capital Management, David Solomon of Goldman Sachs, Barry Sternlight with the Starwood Capital Group and David Blitzer of the Blackstone Group.”

What else? The FCC finally gave up on the “Fairness Doctrine”, which is actually the exact opposite of what it implies. It is censorship and it is a shame that it took this long to abandon. On a separate note, our president skipped his eighth hole on the golf course today because cameras were waiting for him. I have to wonder if he would have welcomed some camera time if he were not so consumed with failure. Don’t mistake his avoidance of the media for modesty. If the vision he had for this country were successful or, in other words, if he had achieved cramming his ideas down our throats and had not mistakenly under-estimated the intelligence of the people who, one by one, form the fabric of this country and their ability to speak out when the government is failing, he would have been hamming it up. Oh, and Morgan Freeman wants Obama to “get pissed off”. He feels he has been “horribly sandbagged” and it makes him “so angry”. Thank you for that, Mr. Freeman.

1,018.1 miles to go.
