The cries of "socialism" fly like monkey shit from flung from the filthy, diseased cages of the Tea Party chimps with great regularity.  But that shit doesn't stick the way it used to.  The Democratic party these days is a wholly-owned subsidiary of WallStreetInc, much like their co-conspirators across (but not too far across) the ideological aisle.  Both parties cavort with capitalists like drunken co-eds let loose in Ft. Lauderdale for their first spring break, hoping to "hook-up" with a sugar daddy who will make their dreams come true.
A few weeks before announcing his re-election campaign, President Obama convened two dozen Wall Street executives, many of them longtime donors, in the White House’s Blue Room.

The guests were asked for their thoughts on how to speed the economic recovery, then the president opened the floor for over an hour on hot issues like hedge fund regulation and the deficit.

Last week, Mr. Romney held three fund-raisers in Greenwich, Conn., and New York, including a reception hosted by Anthony Scaramucci, a hedge fund manager who donated to Mr. Obama in 2008. Mr. Scaramucci said he wanted a president who embodied pragmatism and middle-of-the-road solutions. In 2008, that candidate was Mr. Obama, he said; today, it is Mr. Romney.

“He seemed like he was going to be a transformative candidate,” Mr. Scaramucci said of Mr. Obama in an interview. “I’m really not an ideological guy, and I think the country right now needs more practical, less partisan people.”

To offset those defections, Mr. Obama’s campaign has deployed a corps of loyal Wall Street supporters who have fanned out to defend the president’s record and stoke fatigued donors. They include Robert Wolf, the chief executive of UBS Group Americas; the hedge fund managers Orin S. Kramer and Eric Mindich; and Mark T. Gallogly, a co-founder of Centerbridge Partners.
Both parties are courting the very people who savaged our economy. Who's courting the working people of America? Who's looking out for us?
