Day712 Friday 08/10/12

ran 3.6 miles
In 2008, Goldman Sachs financial services companies gave three-fourths of their campaign donations to Democratic candidates, committees, and Barack Obama's campaign---$6.1 million to be precise. 

Then Barack Obama got elected and here we are four years later. Employees of the New York-based Goldman are now giving 70% of their donations to Republicans. So far, Goldman employees have given $4.9 million to Republican candidates, committees, and Mitt Romney's campaign. An unprecedented reversal among the 25 companies whose employees have given the most to candidates and parties of interest since 1989 is unfolding in this 2012 presidential election. 

Some of the more recognizable companies include Goldman, Bank of America Corp., Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan Chase & Co. (four of the top five financial institutions), Citigroup Inc., and UBS AG (UBSN).

That's a big statement. No doubt this will be fodder for Obama's ruthless campaign team to push the OWS agenda, but he sure wasn't complaining in 2008 when he was receiving the money and it was yet to be determined how much of a failure he would become.

2,080 miles from Lafayette, LA to Washington D.C. and back + 144.1

Here is what happened one year ago on Day347.
