Here we go with another huge mistake by the smug and condescending president primary candidate of the democratic party, Hillary Clinton! So after the Corporate Politicians Pelosi and Obama, gave the ACA to the healthcare industry and expected the people to pay and pay some more. Hillary tells us that we should feel warm and cozy that both her and Obama are quite happy being bought by coperations and Wall Street. I think anyone with a 5th grade education can see the problem here.


Hillary Clinton continues to struggle on the left with criticism that she is too close to Wall Street and would not do enough to rein in the nation's largest banks. And now she is rolling out a new defense, saying she is just like President Barack Obama, who took a lot of Wall Street money in 2008.

And now she is rolling out a new defense, saying she is just like President Barack Obama, who took a lot of Wall Street money in 2008. It's a risky strategy that liberal Democrats so far aren't exactly buying. The new defense was on display in Sunday night's Democratic debate when Bernie Sanders ripped Clinton for taking money for her campaign from big banks and getting "personal speaking fees from Goldman Sachs." Hillary Clinton campaigning in Iowa last week. Scott Morgan | Reuters Hillary Clinton campaigning in Iowa last week. Clinton fired back that there was "no daylight" between her and Sanders on regulating Wall Street, saying "there should be no bank too big to fail and no individual too powerful to jail." Then she pulled out the Obama card: "But where we disagree is the comments that Senator Sanders has made that don't just affect me, I can take that, but he's criticized President Obama for taking donations from Wall Street, and President Obama has led our country out of the great recession," Clinton said. "I'm going to defend President Obama for taking on Wall Street, taking on the financial industry and getting results."

You would think with all of their nefarious dealings she would be able to get huge sums of money without accepting it directly from corporate sponsors ( starting a foundation, like a lot of really wealthy people do, kind of like what Mark Zuckerberg just did recently )


I guess when you're a pig, everything looks like food. She just can't help herself, those dollar signs are enticing and she could never be lowered to the level of having to Drive Herself anywhere.. driving is for the peasants like us.

She's terrible

What did Obama do to the financial industry?
Think she needs to read the pulse of the moderates out there, not all of them think Barry was all that great of president.
Don't think actually saying you are going to be at least four more years of Obama is the way to go at this point.

Not what he did "TO".

What he did "FOR".

I don't much know WTF the OP is on about either, however Wall Street donations are carefully primed, and donations can be and are, given to all the main candidates.

A Trump vs Sanders race is possible but not probable. I do think that what ever you think of either man the occurrence would ultimately be good for the USA. Trump is already scaring the living the daylights out of the corporate/Wall St backers who bankroll US elections. Having both main candidates in the race who don't have to the usual source of funds would dump the establishment into the wildness.

In political terms Sanders isn't my cup of tea. But I do respect for the fact if you vote for him you know what you are getting and he doesn't have Hillary Clinton's baggage.

Can you explain what this is in reference to? How is it significant? I'm just really curious
