Obama Is Wall Street

For those that think we should just vote in Obama for a second term, and either hold our noses or point out the old cliche of "who else is there," one really needs to read this, and take it ALL IN CAREFULLY.

The largest banks are larger than they were when Obama took office and are nearing the level of profits they were making before the depths of the financial crisis in 2008, according to government data.

Wall Street firms — independent companies and the securities-trading arms of banks — are doing even better. They earned more in the first 21 / 2 years of the Obama administration than they did during the eight years of the George W. Bush administration, industry data show.

Please continue your support for Occupy Wall Street.
