A top Obama fundraiser and hedge fund manager said: “I’m appalled at the anti-Wall Street rhetoric. It was OK on the campaign but now it’s the real world. I’m surprised that Obama is turning out to be so left-wing. He’s a real class warrior.”
So who, did those wealthy Wall Street types think Obama was talking about back then on the stump? Did they think he was talking about spreading somebody else’s wealth around or did they just chalk the rhetoric up to Obama’s wacky sense of humor? Were they okay with other people being screwed?
Forgive me if I am having a hard time sympathizing. I’m more than a little turned off by people who helped a socialist get elected while believing that they would be exempt from his socialist policies. In the real world, when you lie down there are consequences. Apparently, the Wall Street boys thought they could leave a couple of bucks on the dresser and walk out.
